say hi to_ Holiday Guide | IV. The Tastemaker

Massimo, owner of a design lighting gallery and his Swedish girlfriend Ingrid, a fashion buyer - live in the heart of Milan, Italy. Massimo brings his passion for all things bright and shiny and Ingrid adds her creative input in the form of geometry and simplistic Scandinavian shapes and forms.

They are the young social power couple of Milano. The duo are known far and wide for their debaucherous parties in Massimo’s colossal old apartment, which has been in his family for generations and for their incessant spending on forward thinking and finely crafted objects and clothing. Massimo, the life of the party loves everything in excess; whether that be a night of wine and smoking or in indulging himself and his Swedish Principessa in handblown glass chandeliers and sculptural goodies from Marni.

Oh yes, and did we mention their love of fabulous lamps, brass and Le Corbusier? Known throughout all of the design social circles as the couple who sets the trends among them all, we’re pleased to have gotten a glimpse at their Christmas list this year.

Have a look at what this fun loving Italian power couple have on their gift wish list.
