concept store

Our concept store ‘Capanni lifestyle’ (named after our B&B, Casa Capanni, in Tuscany) houses our 'Arte di Vita' Paint & Fabrics & designs, as well as a carefully sourced selection of sustainable home wares made by artists, designers and artisans. Here, on the ground floor of the beautiful monumental former inn of Amersfoort in the Netherlands, you can find everything you need to create an 'Arte di Vita interior'; a soothing, harmonious interior that brings you peace of mind.

everything you need to create your own 'Arte di Vita' interior

Step into our store and you will notice the bespoke furniture items and old finds. From French wash basins to brocante cupboards and upholstered chairs. 


One of the secrets to create a soothing, harmonious interior is the use of our 'Arte di Vita' chalk- and lime paint. We also sell our own wax (in the colours brown, white and natural), paint brushes, primer and varnish. 


Not sure which paint colour to choose? Our dedicated team is on hand with expert advice to help you decide!

We specialise in soft furnishings (cushions, lamp shades, curtains, table and bed linen and bed covers) made by hand from the natural fabrics in the 'Arte di Vita' collection. We sell ready-made items in the store, but we also offer a bespoke service. You can also order some of our fabrics by the metre. 

Soft furnishings

Browse our section of lifestyle and fashion items such as hand bags, wallets, scarves, jewellery, etc., all made by artisans and designers for a thoughtful unique gift for yourself or your loved ones.
