The Lando Gingerbread Collection is Whimsical

The Lando Gingerbread Collection will inject a bit of whimsy into any home, granted in a rather uncommon and funky way.

The furniture line is inspired by traditional Caribbean architecture where 'gingerbread' structures are known to be used to recreate a fairytale ambiance. Although steeped in tradition, there is a contemporary aesthetic to these pieces that make them perfect for modern families and individuals.

Designed by Paola Navone, the Lando Gingerbread Collection is a "mixture of rough shapes and elegant frames upholstered in vividly colored materials, a mixture that has theatrical touches yet looks almost childlike," as Captivatist so aptly puts it. The popularity of fairytales in modern society will make the Lando Gingerbread Collection a sure winner. Stats for Funky Fairytale Furniture Trending: Older & Warm
