About Malbi Decor
Imagine having your own, personal team of Italian interior designers.
Italy is well known for its thriving artisan industries, but many Italian artists and designers do not export across the Atlantic. Their products are often “single material,” and each artist uniquely represents the traditions, origins, and culture of Italy. Now, with the opening of Malbi Decor in Sarasota, downtown shoppers might think they’re actually strolling the streets of Venice or Florence, instead of Sarasota, Florida.
Malbi Décor is certainly the closest you’ll get to authentic Italian home decor, without the pesky jet-lag. Luckily for Sarasota, Malbi Decor’s owners, Maria Alberta Borri and Federico Zini, put in the legwork so you don’t have to! Together, this husband and wife team travel multiple times per year to Italy to hand-select the finest Italian home decor products, and bring them back for you to purchase at their downtown boutique and online shop.
Italian Artisan Decor in the Heart of Sarasota
Located on Pineapple Avenue, between Ringling Boulevard and Main Street, Malbi Decor offers a variety of imported products from one-of-a-kind, handmade glassware to table linens and flatware. The boutique functions as an art gallery and event space, with artist showings and interior decorating demonstrations.
MALBI DECOR offers high quality Italian home products. The majority of its products will be made of only one material, and each will represent the traditions, origins and culture of Italy. Such special items are expressions of the artistic imagination and evoke some kind of feeling or emotion. Every item also reflects its history and the background of those who created it.
