Raw&Co is the most chic "cabinet of wonders" in Milan, an interior design boutique but also an art gallery, where you can get lost among refined objects from all over the world and fascinating furnishings with a vintage flavour.
Raw&Co is the refined brand born from the dream of Paolo Badesco, interior designer, and Costantino Affuso, architect; a container of emotions that can be visited with the amazement of a Wunderkammer, moving between different rooms that house antique furniture, wallpapers, vintage pieces and timeless objects set up as in a dream apartment.
A path that recounts the creative duo’s years of research around the world scouting for unique pieces and remarkable brands to offer in the two stores, the larger one in Corso Magenta, located inside of the courtyard of an Art Nouveau building, and, more intimate, the one in via Palermo in Brera, with a focus on signature design.
Raw&Co is our “cabinet de curiosités”, a place where different objects, by age and origin, find themselves in a sophisticated harmonious environment.
(Paolo Badesco & Costantino Affuso)
The settings are in continuous transformation, not only in the offer but also in the mood, in the colors and in the arrangement of the pieces, experimenting with different ideas of ‘home design‘ and contaminations between ancient and contemporary. Each visit is an ever-new journey between past and present, skilfully blended atmospheres and stories that create harmony for the eyes and for the spirit.
The name chosen for the Cabinet de Curiositès, Raw, underlines the choice of proposing ‘unrestored’ objects, in which the signs of time become the value and uniqueness of each piece. The repertoire of complements, accessories and objects is gathered from all over the world, with a preference for French and English culture and their furniture and tableware traditions.
Not to be missed, on the second floor of Raw Magenta, is the winter garden, a terrace-greenhouse that joins the two sides of the apartment furnished with wicker chairs, plants of all sizes, candles and glass vases.
Among the shelves we find many icon brands such as the iconic objects of the New York collector John Derian, handmade in his workshop in Downtown Manhattan, the ceramics, perfumes and textiles of Astier de Villatte Paris and many collections of wallpapers such as those of Wall&decò.
The enchanting setting also makes Raw&Co the perfect location for events and private parties, thus becoming the reference point not only for special shopping sessions, but also for those who love to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of a dream home, find the right inspiration and live an experience suspended in time.
A visit to Raw&Co during the Milan Design Week is not to be missed, when the brand offers surprising installations thanks to partnerships, different every year, with international design names.
