Le icone

ABOUT US

We like to think of ourselves as treasure hunters, in constant pursuit of beauty, of things that are forgotten by time and that are simply waiting to be brought back to their original splendour. We buy only what we like and what we feel we must have. Our mission is to provide our clients with pieces that stand out, have original design and have a great story to tell. From antique church panels with beautifully timeworn patinas to beaten-to-hell country tables and heavy industrial lighting. Our eclectic taste for furniture and decoration includes pieces from the XVIII century to contemporary. These ideas are the basis of Le Icone, a décor and design company that has its roots in Italy, in the heart of Puglia. Our items are of different kinds, eras, materials and styles and that is why they are ideal to furnish any space from country houses to modern and minimal apartments. We are Aleksandra and Nicolò and we are Le Icone.

OUR HOME

Our décor-centric shop is situated in Via San Quirico 19, on the Belvedere of Cisternino, a beautiful small town in the heart of the picturesque Apulian countryside. The shop is set inside the walls of the old town, in a traditional 18th century stone building that was once the warehouse and cistern of the bordering Palazzo Amati. Here you will find some of the best pieces of our collection.
We also have a large warehouse full of treasures and unrestored pieces a few minutes walking away from our shop that can be visited by appointment.

We are extremely proud to announce our collaboration with London artist @jaredgreenart , who is now based in Puglia, Italy. His exceptional art works are now available and can be purchased on our website www.leicone.it and will soon be in our shop in Cisternino.
*
Proudly self-taught and following a prominent career as a creative director which ultimately focused on achieving visual perfection, Jared’s art draws on the very opposite, celebrating not the flawlessness, but the flaw. It demonstrates a visceral rawness that nonetheless retains a haunting beauty through its composition. His work is boldly expressive. Layering mediums at first appear aggressive, but subtly so. Jared's recent works are inspired by his love of renaissance Italian architecture and the aging Palazzos of Milan and Florence. Peeling, cracked walls offer a refined rawness. Hidden layers are revealed with striking elegance. Applying various mediums to create age and texture, there is something alluring about the passage of time made visible.

A special thank you to interior designer @gianpaologuerra for allowing us to shoot the art works in his beautiful masseria in Ostuni.

Super excited about yesterday's catch, well worth the almost 10 hour drive in the most isolated areas of Italy. A beautiful stock of gigantic oil orcios. Finds like this make us feel lucky to do what we do. Now just a little clean ( dont want to compromise the beautiful patina and texture) and then straight in the shop!
