Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

Italy, the country that is bursting with romance.  From it's breathtaking scenery, the passion for living and of course their food - food of love.  But the word 'romantic' originally meant, 'from or about Rome', so it is no wonder that Romance and Italy are inseparable. Romance in Words. Cordello Home was founded on love and born from the Italian words for “heart” (“cuore”) and “pattern” (“modello”). Cordello Home brings graphic design and pattern to life on everyday homeware products. Their patterns are all created using an iconic heart symbol and embrace the use of colour for those looking to bring vibrancy and fun through contemporary design, into their home.
