Facchinetti worked with design doyenne Nina Yasher, owner of Nilufar gallery, for her fall 2014 installation that featured a mix of 1950s furniture, Stilnovo chandeliers, an early-1900s portrait by Giovanni Boldini, and one of Lucio Fontana’s “slashed” bronze wall sculptures.

The set for spring 2014 included a console table, couch, chandelier, and rug created by the Milan interiors firm Dimore Studio. Accents included a pair of Lady chairs, by Marco Zanuso for Arflex, and pale mauve roses.
