An Australian couple have turned a run-down 18th century villa in Positano into a light, airy, modern home. A cantilevered ribbon of antique Vietri tiles snakes through the living areas becoming a coffee table, a bench, a place to eat.I love the juxtaposition of ancient space and modernist forms.

A wunderkammer, or cabinet of curiosities, is a place to gather your treasured collections. More than that .... the weird, the wonderful, the found and discarded. Nature's detritus or man made discards. A collection may contain the truly beautiful or the down right bizarre. This post started out as a look at how to display collections but I was quickly drawn into the wonder of the cabinet of curiosities.
