Home DECORATING STYLES Holiday Special: An Italian Tablescape Inspired by Travel Warms a Home

Buyers at Neiman Marcus agreed, and they bought 14,000 pieces of Vietri’s first design, Campagna.

Thirty years later, Neiman Marcus is still Vietri’s No. 1 buyer for its tableware, but now Vietri has its own pop-up shops, and the tableware and the Italian-inspired home décor is in boutique stores and department stores across the country. Vietri has expanded its design portfolio over the years, but the original concept behind Vietri remains the same.

“We see ourselves as an everyday luxury. It’s about family and friends getting together. Sharing dreams, sharing the good times, and the hard times all over the family dinner table,” remarked Gravely. Vietri is the founder of the everyday style of mixing and matching.

To learn more about the luxury Relais & Chateaux hotel that inspired the creation of a multimillion-dollar tablescape company, visit the  San Pietro Hotel website. It certainly has me dreaming of an Amalfi Coast vacation this Christmas.

With over 20 factories in Italy, Susan Gravely and Vietri staff based in North Carolina visit Italy often, and the San Pietro Hotel is still one of Gravely’s favorite places on the Amalfi Coast.

In honor of this milestone year, Vietri created a commemorative mug as a way to give back to the community. All proceeds from each mug sold go to  Habitat for Humanity in Orange County. I love drinking my tea out of my special mug piped in blue.
