Bottega di Corte

When antiques have an heart

When collecting and selling antiquities, it’s inevitable that the catalog ends up reflecting the collector’s personality. What unites a collection of objects from different eras if not the identity of those who, in the first place, collected them together? It’s clear, then, how Bottega di Corte rises above the classic antique shop to define and propose a living concept.

An elegance that finds depth and perspective in the past, which discovers the richness in the years of lived life that accumulate, enriching it, on each object, each piece of furniture. The reference to the past isn’t simply nostalgia, but a gaze cast beyond time, towards a world of beauty, luxury and nobility. An operation that is so much easier, nested as it is in the midst of Florentine art and architecture, the first inspirations of this love of the past.

Bottega di Corte is located in Via del Sole, just a stone’s throw from Santa Maria Novella, on the ground floor of the ancient building that makes a corner with the square. The interiors are the perfect exhibition space to show off all the objects in the collection, highlighting their beauty. One of the most beautiful pieces is certainly a bed built using old doors, but there are armchairs, tables, bookcases and all kinds of furnishings.

Each piece of this luxury antiques fits perfectly with all the others, returning the sense of a unitary aesthetic, crowned, as if it were not enough, by an exclusive fragrance, always called Bottega di Corte and signed by master perfumers of Aqua Flor, which fills the large colonnaded spaces of the shop with notes of currants and strawberries. Walking on the wooden planks of the floor, observing the white vaults of the historic spaces, you cannot help but perceive a splendor and richness that you will desire in your everyday life.

And if the old paintings, the antique lamps, the drawers, the candelabra, the unique wunderkammer pieces, the prints, the trunks, the suitcases and the furnishings of all kinds should not be enough, the minds behind Bottega di Corte are ready to bring their sense of beauty even in the most important moments of your life thanks to the event and wedding planning service.

Not just a store, then, but something more rarefied and immaterial is the soul of Bottega di Corte: an ideal of life, a vision of the world and a dream that you want to share.

We can't. That's why every week we share the best experiences florence has to offer.
