Bastia Fuori Store by Andrea Gaio, Mirano – Italy

November 18th, 2015 by retail design blog

For the refurbishment of this cosy boutique located in the historic center of Mirano, a town near Venice, the main idea was to use a soft velvet curtain behind which can be hidden the dressing area, the rest room and the storage. The mossy green of the curtain and its elegant black rim bring out the beautiful ceiling beams painted in dark shades.


The atmosphere is even more refined thanks to a polished oak floor laid in a French herringbone pattern and a high baseboard with a lacquered finish like the walls. Much sought after are the oval section cloths racks and the underlying wood drawers finished in a black lacquer and with a white Carrara marble top.


On the right side of the store, between the racks, it is placed an antique wardrobe, also with external black lacquered finish and gold details, which was taken off the doors to be used as a shelf. The interior of the wardrobe is painted pink as to attract the gaze of customers on products, clothes and accessories on display. In the central part of the store, the ancient wooden column was incorporated into an ottoman velvet seat with quilted finish. This seat is dark gray as to match the shades of the ceiling. Next to the cash desk, located on the back of the window, there is a vintage furniture made of black iron and glass that reflects the mood of the store, a little retro but very elegant.
