I guess most of you know it already, we moved! Our new hair and beauty salon is in Carrer de la Missió 13 in Palma de Mallorca, and we could not be happier with the neighborhood and our adorable and eclectic neighbors! In particular, I would like to introduce you this time to Nekane Leorza, the creative owner of the studio and decoration shop LASANTA&CO.
STROLLING THROUGH THE MISSIÓ NEIGHBORHOOD
As we were opening the new hair salon I dived with passion in the world of interior design and decoration. The same way it fascinates me to mix the dyes and come up with the most beautiful colors for my clients, I loved choosing each and every piece of furniture to create a nice and cozy atmosphere. Strolling through the neighborhood, I fell in love with LASANTA&CO., from the spectacular print of the chairs to the aphrodisiac smell of its exclusive collection of candles and perfumes, the store is an elegant mix of cool, contemporary and vintage pieces, a place exquisitely different with a very good taste.
FROM THE FASHION WORLD TO INTERIOR DESIGN
And you understand immediately when meeting and talking to Nekane (the name for Dolores in Basque)! She has devoted all her studies and career to develop that good taste. History of Art, master of fashion in Milan, 15 years as Fashion Editor of a magazine in this great city of fashion, with such a career one can hardly develop bad taste. It’s during the photographic sets that she realized how much she enjoyed arranging the sets, rather than the clothes actually, and so she decided to close this time of her life dedicated to fashion to return to Mallorca to open LASANTA&CO., her own decoration studio.
REINVENTING THE CHAIR
Success was waiting for her around the corner, very soon LASANTA&CO. started collaborating with real estate and hotel groups. In that short period she came up with the idea of creating a collection of outdoor furniture. Inspiration and creation was born in Bali, visiting a friend just over 3 years ago and the rest is history. Her chairs are already famous and sought after in the most beautiful gardens and patios all over the island. The dazzling print that reminds a bit of Missoni gives them color and life, elegance and freshness.
Each piece is unique, the chairs are made in Bali with certified teak, the outdoor chairs are 100% plastic and the precious print is now covering armchairs with hand-woven fabrics in silk and cotton as well. There are no two identical fabrics which makes each piece unique. For the story Nekane told me how these fabrics called sarong are the ones that men wear as a skirt in nuptial ceremonies. They are the same fabrics that have inspired the Majorcan lenguas (famous Majorcan printed fabric) when the silk route crossed the Mediterranean … From Bali to Mallorca made with much detail and love.
A LOVELY HOMAGE TO NEKANE’S GRANDMOTHER
All the love shines in LASANTA&CO., which bears the name and an animal print logo to recall the memory, admiration and love of Nekane to her grandmother, an elegant and modern woman. I would pretty much describe Nekane Leorza with the same words and as well as her little dream store that I highly invite you to discover.
They have just celebrated their first anniversary with great enthusiasm to continue sharing with contemporary art exhibitions and more surprises.
Go have a walk around our new neighborhood and don’t hesitate to pass by, say hello and let me know what you think of it! I love sharing my favorite places on the island with you guys!
Talk to you soon!
