Concierge.com's insider take:
Barthel is the king of Italy's shabby-chic interior designers. His shop and HQ near the Porta Romana is a treasure trove of old copper pots, worn leather armchairs, antique Vietri floor tiles, picture frames, and other exquisitely tasteful domestic bibelots, with originals and reproductions merging seamlessly in the mix. You can buy single items, though the place is essentially a calling card for Barthel's thriving design consultancy. But for anyone interested in the new-old Tuscan country look, a wander around the designer's lair is a great source of inspiration.
Open Mondays through Fridays 9 am to 1 pm and 3:30 to 7:30 pm, and Saturdays 9 am to 1 pm, October through April.
