Italian Design + Brazilian Hospitality = Casa Bossanova

Italian Brazilians are the largest number of people with full or partial Italian ancestry outside Italy. Find out how this influenced Home Design in Brazil.

“Italian Brazilians are the largest number of people with full or partial Italian ancestry outside Italy, with São Paulo being the most populous city with Italian ancestry in the world.”

Many are unaware, but Brazil had massive Italian immigration between 1880 and 1910 in the south and southeast regions. Italians were workers brought from Europe after slaves were freed from abolition by the Portuguese colonizers. As a result, the government created a campaign to bring Italian and European citizens to work on Brazilian farms.

Currently, Brazil has one of the largest concentrations of Italian descendants in the world. For this reason, Italian culture had a significant influence in Brazil, and the architecture of houses and home design is an example of this.

Italians are world-renowned for their sharp aesthetics, both in fashion, architecture, and design. The classic and timeless style is a hallmark of Italian design. Therefore, high-quality pieces and clean lines result in long-lasting furniture that matches every phase of your life. And for the same reason, Italian furniture is also environmentally friendly, as it is durable and classic, yet luxurious.

On the other hand, Brazilians taught Italians the theme of pleasure. Brazilians are known for their hospitality and passion for life, so family gatherings and dinners with friends at home are a tradition. Having a warm and inviting atmosphere is essential in Brazilian homes.

Similar to Bossa Nova, a jazz-samba fusion with a distinct and more refined beat, the Italian-Brazilian design has its particular charm, a mixture of classics but with a modern and inviting touch. Casa Bossanova wants to bring this feeling to your home through its furniture and home design. #livelikeabossanova
