Turin is a shopping destination that you do not expect. It is a continuous discovery from getting lost in its streets that resemble cozy houses furnished in good taste, with research as the key to success. A few steps from Piazza Carlina is Parrot and Palm, the atelier and wonderful “house” of Lucilla.
Light wood parquet, velvet armchairs, vintage furniture and romantic and exotic wallpaper between, dare I say, palms and parrots. Also accompanied by oriental landscapes with pastel colors. Accessories, clothes and decorations for sale match perfectly with all the curious objects scattered around the store.
Globes, plants, books, old suitcases, a rocking chair, lamps, an aviary, mirrors and frames await. If you look closely, a with a small fountain as well. A unique setting that mixes a retro home with exotic inspirations of travel and a bohemian and romantic atmosphere.
A setting so curious and welcoming it could only accommodate a multi-brand research studio to be scoured from top to bottom while looking for a new sweater, a unique accessory or a gift for a special person. The whimsical selection of objects for sale shuns the fashions of the moment and, in line with the multifaceted personality of the place and its owner, is inspired by the most varied suggestions: including French echo, animal, exotic references, present and past memories.
Parrot and palm is the address for those who love exclusive items found in an environment that welcomes, intrigues and makes you feel at home. Feeling at home, once you find the pieces that suit you, try them on in a beautiful dressing room-closet.
The love of fantasies is evident through the upholsteery, but if you carefully browse through the long dresses and shirts you will be lost among patterns of monkeys, geishas, flowers, jaguars, cactuses, and geometric shapes.
Made in Italy small precious jewels, candles, niche perfumes and special objects for home decor such as mugs, dessert plates, empty pockets and small jars collect alongside a selection from international brands, Made in Italy and new designers.
The Turinese should not fail to explore Parrot and Palm atleast once, while those addicted to fashion should consider a shopping tour in Turin for a stage in the atelier.
