Our Story

who we are

Traditional Art, Modern Style

OUR STORY: Artist and designer Eleonora Ferragatta is a first generation Italian and has been surrounded by art culture all of her life. Her parents are from Rome and Turin. She is a classically trained fine artist and has been an oil painter for over 25 years.

Today, Eleonora is a celebrated New England based artist known for her creative approach to fashion and home décor. She transforms her original oil paintings of lush floral designs and prints them on luxurious sustainable and comfortable fabrics to create dresses, scarves, leggings, kimonos, home décor, handbags, and more.

After several years of learning the best methods and technology to reproduce her paintings on fabric and finding a process that is environmentally friendly, she launched her brand in 2012. Eleonora has had success in the retail world and in the eyes of
fashionistas. Her collections have been placed in boutiques and fine retail stores across the country including HomeGoods,, Mieka NY, and featured in renowned magazines such as Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Tatler, World of Interiors, House & Garden, and loved by the press for many seasons.

Eleonora‘s thoughtful and passionate personality and gratitude toward her work and family and life in general is inspiring and fun to be around. She greets each day and each meeting with enthusiasm – humor and hard work is what drives her, and her positive attitude is contagious. 

Over the years Eleonora has dreamed up beautiful ways for her artwork to be utilized to brighten spaces throughout the home with functional products that reflect classical elegance and vibrant on trend fine art Home Décor. Her art is bordered with beauty as she weaves together a sense of floral elegance from her imagination to bring you exclusive fine art pieces that you can not only look at, but wear. They are as unique as they are stylish.  

FAMILY: Eleonora enjoys living in the quiet corner of CT with her husband and their three children. Nestled in the woods and surrounded by nature. When she is not painting or designing, Eleonora loves gardening, baking, playing volleyball, and spending time with her huge loving family that spans generations.
