Established in Monaco in 2010, CASAMANARA is the collaborative effort of this talented brother-and-sister duo Piero Manara and Debla Manara-Berger. An Interior Architecture and Decorative Arts bureau, the two work together designing luxurious interiors for a wide variety of corporate and private clients. Driven by a fascination with beauty and a genuine sensitivity to the needs of each client, Piero and Debla create projects that appeal to the aesthetic senses as well as the practical in equal parts. For them, the word ‘beauty’ encompasses the entire creative process. From the initial spark that ignites the idea, to its finalized embodiment. The two work closely with specialist craftsmen and artisans, in order to ensure a thoroughly exceptional result, creating pieces that are bespoke and beautiful from the inside out.The portfolio of CASAMANARA boasts a range of diverse interiors – from sprawling summer villas in the South of France, to urban lofts in Manhattan, pied-à-terres in Paris and a country home in the East of England. The projects they’ve taken on demonstrate their ability to adapt to all manner of terrains, personalities, and functionalities. Here is one such project
