Provide has just received some exciting new products from Italian designers: Oscar Maschera and Rina Menardi.

Oscar Maschera, whom we met at the Maison et Objet in Paris this fall has sent us some of his beautifully crafted leather boxes, bags and trays. In addition, we have the new ceramic designs from Rina Menardi's collection that we were fortunate enough to see at the same show. All are just small samplings from both designers collections. For more information and to place special orders, contact us at Provide and we will be happy to help.

Provide has just returned from the Maison et Objet show in Paris and over the next week, we will be sharing with you some of the amazing artists, designers and brands that where there to showcase their latest offerings.

Rina Medardi is one of our favourite designers working today and it was a pleasure to reconnect with her at the show and get some personal insights into her thoughts for the new fall collection. Rina told us that she wanted to focus on form and shape – and in doing so she presented much of her new collection in black and white. What can we say, it was absolutely stunning. We have placed orders from a wide range
of these new pieces, and expect delivery within the next couple of months. Pieces can be specially ordered from a selection of colours if you choose.
