Master Design for Master Bath

It’s only natural that the new master bathroom in Anthony and Carmelina Passanante’s Bergen County home should have lots of bells and whistles. After all, Anthony, a certified master kitchen and bath designer, has spent his career dressing up other people’s bathrooms.

Anthony and Carmelina moved to their Washington Township home four years ago with son Marcello, now 10, and daughter Valentina, 8. The family welcomed Isabella in 2016. The home, a modified split-level, was nothing spectacular, but its location was: it sits directly on Schlegel Lake, a private, 28-acre lake. “We saw the water in the backyard and immediately fell in love with that,” says Anthony.

Built in the 1950s, the house was sorely in need of some work. “We chipped away at it little by little,” says Anthony. The couple refinished floors, repainted the interior and rebuilt the deck. They combined two smaller bathrooms into one, which became the kids’ bath. Next came a kitchen renovation. But the master-bathroom project remained on hold. “Anthony wouldn’t let me do anything to the bathroom,” says Carmelina. “Not even rip down the wallpaper.”

Finally, the couple turned their attention to the master bath. The narrow space had an under-sized double vanity. The separate toilet closet was covered in dated wallpaper, and the off-white paint was peeling. The bay of windows overlooking the lake was covered in “ugly, huge valances,” says Anthony. The biggest eyesore: an enormous tub installed on an elevated platform set underneath the windows. “It took up so much room and looked like a giant hot tub,” says Anthony. “Our water heater couldn’t even keep up with it. By the time it was filled, the water was running cold.”

Picking new materials was Anthony’s biggest challenge. “I struggle, since this is what I do for a living,” he says. “I suffer from overexposure.” He started with the flooring. While working with a client, Anthony spotted a porcelain tile that looked like weathered wood and knew he had to have it. To add interest, he had it installed in a herringbone pattern.

The custom double vanity is finished in white for “a timeless look,” he says. The cabinetry, built in Anthony’s workshop, is customized for their stuff. A tall standing cabinet serves as a linen closet. Drawers and pull-out shelves are outfitted to hold toiletries and Carmelina’s makeup and accessories. “I love that makeup drawer,” says Carmelina. “I can see everything I have at once.” Carrara marble in a honed finish tops the vanity. An enormous custom mirror edged with silver leaf fills the wall. Sconces are installed directly onto the mirror for a touch of glam. “The mirror really dresses up the space,” says Anthony. “The reflection of the light fixtures adds a bit of bling.”

The walls are painted a warm gray. “We didn’t want cool tones,” says Anthony. The toilet closet remains, but Anthony upgraded to a toilet/bidet that not only cleans itself, but has a seat that instantly warms. “It’s a luxury, but it’s really nice,” he says.

The stand-alone shower is in the same place as before, but was extended by 7 inches. The shower floor is made of natural stone pebbles; the walls are marble. A custom glass surround makes the space appear larger and lets in natural light. It also allows views of the lake while showering.

The crowning touch is a deep soaking tub, situated under the unadorned windows. “We toyed with putting a makeup vanity in that nook,” says Anthony, but the freestanding tub won out. “I’ll get a lot more use out of a tub,” says Carmelina.

Accessories, including the sconces and a porthole mirror, are nautical, inspired by views of the lake. “We love the water, so we wanted a nautical feel,” says Anthony.

Now the couple savors their kid-free space. “The cliché of the master-suite retreat lives on in this house,” jokes Anthony. “We shut the door. No kids allowed.”

50+ Secret Things to Do in Italy

For our Italy issue, we asked the most knowledgeable people we could think of about their favorite places all over the country: where they found the best cacio e pepe, spent quiet afternoons in 14th-century hamlets, and bought beautifully tailored shirts. The conversations—held on the phone and in person, over email and WhatsApp, in English, Italian, or some jumbled combination of the two—turned into one massive, sprawling Google doc of information. Some of these nuggets became full-length features in this month’s magazine; the rest are here, below, now yours for the scrolling (or printing, and highlighting, and stashing away for your next adventure).

The Restaurants We Love (and What to Order)

“At Da Felice in Rome, get the puntarelle in salsa di alici, the tonnarelli cacio e pepe, the abbacchio al forno and the carciofi alla romana. At Trattoria Sostanza in Florence, the tortino di carciofi, the tortellini in brodo, the lombatina di vitello and the fagioli all’olio. And at Corte Sconta in Venice, it’s all about the alici e melanzane marinate, the tagliolini al granchio di ragno and the seppie con polenta e piselli.—Danny Meyer, CEO of Union Square Hospitality Group

“In Florence, I love to go to Trattoria Sostanza for their classic, old-school atmosphere and the butter chicken—a double chicken breast in a browned crust that comes in a sizzling pan of butter. No one else in Florence does anything like it, but they’ve been famous for it for the better part of a century. It’s perfect with a couple of simple, Tuscan sides like slowly stewed cannellini beans with olive oil and a salad of bitter greens. For dessert, get the wild strawberries—you can have them plain, or sprinkled with sugar or lemon juice, but I like it when they’re splashed in sugar and red wine. If I’ve got someone willing to share it with me, I give in to the meringue cake with whipped cream and wild strawberries. Sostanza is small so reservations are a must and bring cash (they don’t do cards).” —Emiko Davies, author of Florentine: The True Cuisine of Florence

“At the Umbrian restaurant Il Caldaro, an off-the-beaten-path restaurant in an old farmhouse in in La Bruna, a town just north of Perugia, everything is delicious—but the pizza is the simplest and the best. The dough is prepared daily by the in-house pizza chef and the toppings are sourced from the farm just outside. It is not a ‘fast food’ dish but a very creative part of their menu.” —Benedickt Bolza, founder of the Castello di Reschio estate in Tuscany

“Our favorite food memory would have to be at Trattoria Cammillo (sometimes referred to as ‘Da Cammillo’) in Florence. Their cervello di vitello (calf’s brains) are simply breaded and fried, and served with lemon. Offal might be off-putting to some people (especially Americans) but in Europe they just eat it because it tastes good! It’s light and crispy on the outside and incredibly creamy on the inside, comparable to the texture of smooth custard. The dish is very simple, but Scott and I both agree that it’s one of the best things we’ve ever eaten anywhere.” —Angie Rito and Scott Tacinelli, executive chefs of Don Angie in New York

“In Rome, over the bridge—well, actually on the bridge—to the little Isola Tiberina, the small island in the middle of the Tiber River, stands the delicious family-run restaurant, Sora Lella. I’ve had so many wonderful and authentic Roman lunches and dinners there, with a deep wine collection to choose something delightful to accompany my delicious Roman-style veal tripe in a light tomato sauce scented with mint and pecorino cheese. I can’t wait to go back and experience the warm greeting of Poppa, the owner, and his sons and daughter, who make the whole experience feel as though you’re visiting family.” —Michael Lomonaco, chef and owner of Porter House in New York

“My two picks are both from Sardinia: the triangular black ravioli with seafood filling, fresh sage, and a dash of bottarga at Ristorante Su Barchile, in Orosei, and the snow white fresh cheese Fruhe or Casu Axedu served as a starter at Agriturismo Testone in the island’s Nuoro mountains.” —Claus Meyer, co-founder of Noma in Copenhagen

The wild strawberries at Trattoria Sostanza in Florence

La mugnaia at La Bilancia in Abruzzo is one of the most memorable dishes from my travels. It is a simple, hearty, thick hand-rolled spaghetti, made with just flour and water, a simple olive oil sauce and red pepper. It is served with a small scissors and a chile and you’re meant to cut the chili by hand over your pasta.” —Joe Campanale, owner of Fausto in Brooklyn

“I love Taverna la Cialoma, on the southeast coast near Pachino in the small fishing town of Marzamemi. All of the seafood is freshly caught from the Mediterranean. The shrimp and langoustine crudo were the highlights. My son ate his first fried anchovy there while we all convulsed over the incredibly fresh seafood served in its most natural state, raw with lovely local olive oil and sea salt. Simply heaven.” —Donna Lennard, owner of Il Buco and Il Buco Alimentari in New York

“Senigallia, a coastal town in Le Marche, is well known by Italian gastronomes but flies well under the radar of most visitors. There are two super famous fine dining spots there, Uliassi and Madonnina del Pescatore, as well as super cute natural wine bars and a number of fish restaurants like Il Clandestino in a range of fanciness. Pretty much every cook in town has worked at either Uliassi or Madonnina del Pescatore, so even the simplest food in the most unassuming venue has elegance. The town is quaint, the fish is so good, and it makes for a nice weekend trip. And Norcino Vito Bernabei in Marino, a half-hour train ride from Rome, has the world’s best porchetta, no exaggeration.” —Katie Parla, author of Walking Rome and Where to Eat Pizza

“There’s a restaurant in western Sicily called Ardigna that I’m crazy about (Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli, the owners of Frankies Spuntino in New York turned me onto it years ago). It’s so damn good and wonderfully rustic and set on a hilltop surrounded by farmland and wandering sheep. It’s about an hour from Marsala or Palermo by a long and winding road. Ardigna’s housemade amaro was among the best I’ve ever tasted (not to mention their honey, their ricotta, their salumi, the bread and pastry, the olives from just outside).” —Peter Jon Lindberg, writer and travel consultant

“Gina is my favorite place in Rome. Sometimes during my lunch break, I give myself a special cacio e pepe moment there—it’s cozy, they have friendly service and it’s the best cacio e pepe in the city. If you want to find the best tiramisù in Rome, I always recommend Pasticcio in Lungotevere Portuense, a panoramic restaurant where I go to enjoy the sunset while having my favorite Italian cake.” —Stella Jean, designer

“One of my favorite secret places to eat is Sixieme Bistro, which just opened inside my friend Fanny Grung’s super chic new design spot, Six Gallery. She and her boyfriend David designed the restaurant—a cozy place with a small menu but all made with love. Then I’ll go over and hang with Fanny in the design gallery, which is another one of my all-time favorite places. The jungle plants alone are enough to make me want to stay forever and that’s before you’ve seen the gorgeous furniture!” —J.J. Martin, writer and founder of La DoubleJ

“One of my favorite things to do in Tuscany is explore the country from north to south, on and off road on my motorcycle. For a bite to eat, I like to stop at Il Quartino (the name means “a third of a bottle of wine”) in the small town of Pelago, a little over half a mile from our Castello di Nipozzano estate. The food may only be rivaled by the view, overlooking a beautiful valley with vineyards and forests. ​The summer​ is astonishing​; pink sunsets, to be enjoyed from the restaurant’s open veranda. Yo​​u can eat local product and dishes, from salumi and cheese to seasonal vegetables.” —Lamberto Frescobaldi, 30th-generation winemaker and president of Frescobaldi Wines

The Best Shopping

“Every May, Artigianato e Palazzo is the chicest craft fair highlighting all the best and most traditional old world craftsmanship in Florence. It’s hosted and curated by the Corsini family in the gardens of the incredible Palazzo Corsini.” —Amanda Brooks, Traveler contributor

“The mercato d’antiquariato di Casale Monferrato in Piedmont is the best antique market in the north of Italy. I’ve found many treasures there, including several exceptionally beautiful sets of embroidered bedsheets. In Milan, Pupi Solari is a small children’s boutique that has been dressing the city’s luckiest kids for generations in impeccable Milanese style, and Merù Gioielli is a jeweler who makes small enameled medallions with the most varied subjects.” —Margherita Missoni, designer

“In a hidden garden in the heart of Milano is my favorite niche jewelry shop, Rosantica. They have the most interesting bijoux in town.” —Stella Jean

“Right in the same square as my favorite produce market in Florence, Sant’Ambrogio Market, there are a couple of places I love to browse for homewares. Il Cuore delle Cose has a small but lovely selection of plates, glasses, and cutlery with a tendency toward country chic in neutrals and pastels. Lisa Corti, next to Caffe Cibreo on the eastern end of the market square, has beautiful cotton linens handprinted using Indian block-printing methods in a colorful palette. Her bright, striped, or patterned designs are often paired with quirky coasters and placemats featuring exotic animals and palm trees. Slightly down the road from the market in Piazza Ciompi is the tiny workshop of Fabio Figus and his father Maurizio, who make artisanal knives and olive wood kitchen accessories like boards, platters, and utensils. My favorite knife at home, with a mahogany handle and hand-hammered stainless steel blade, is one of his.” —Emiko Davies

“The Vintage Fair in Parma, which they hold every October, can be full of rip-offs—but if you know what you’re doing, it’s great. Dealers from London go here to buy vintage Italian ’60s Gio Ponti, Achille Castiglioni, etc. and sell for three times as much back home.” —Emma O’Kelly, Wallpaper magazine editor-at-large

“La Reggia Caserta, outside Naples, is an outlet where dozens of Italian designers (Prada, DG, Moschino) offer crazy discounts. My pal Crescenzo Gargano (owner of the Hotel Santa Caterina in Amalfi) sends many guests there en route back from Amalfi to Naples. He and I went once and scored $4,000 Isaia suits for $400.” —Peter Jon Lindberg, writer and travel consultant

“In Montalcino, a small town dotted with enoteche along medieval streets, visit Sartoria Principe, an artisan textile shop whose selection ranges from Tuscan classics like the famous Busatti fabrics to some of the finest Italian clothes from silk and cashmere, to merino wool and Alpaca sourced on the nearby Mount Amiata.” —Lamberto Frescobaldi

“I love modernariato—vintage furniture. In Milan my favorite places are Mercatino Penelope and Roberta e Basta.” —Sara Battaglia, stylist

“At the antique market in Arezzo you can find a lot of beautiful old stuff!” —Luisa Beccaria, designer

“Campisi Conserve in Marzamemi in southeastern Sicily is a gourmet shop specializing in Mediterranean fish—tuna, anchovies, and anchovy sauce—and Pachino tomatoes preserves. Marzamemi is an ancient fishing village founded by the Arabs and famous for its tonnara (tuna processing plant) where time truly seems to have stopped. It is definitely worth visiting!” —Marco Muggiano, marketing director of Slowear

“In Florence, I like to shop at Principe, a true gentlemen’s destination for casual and classic clothing. They have a made-to-measure section where I like to get my warm suede trousers made to perfectly fit me for cold winter days.” —Luca Gnecchi Ruscone, creative director of L. G. R. Eyewear

“From a shopping perspective, Naples is most famous for its rich history of soft tailoring and the Chiaia district is the center of this. Many of the tailors are still based here. Vico Cavallerizza houses the incredible Sartoria Formosa and tie maker E.G. Cappelli. The two small shops share fabrics, so it’s possible to buy handmade ties cut from beautiful Scottish cashmere and jackets lined in beautiful English printed madder silk. For non-tailoring options: Capri by Capri’s house line of matte tortoise sunglasses is incredible. Nennapop is an eclectic women’s boutique that juxtaposes the vivid colors of Naples with Indian block printing and bohemian style. Finally, Neapolitan shirtmaker Salvatore Piccolo’s small flagship is not to be missed as it transcends the traditional idea of southern Italian style with fabrics and references from all over the world. You find soft coats lined in African mud fabrics, Japanese indigo western shirts, loop wheel knits and sweatshirts from Germany. It is the best men’s store in the city.” —Antonio Ciongoli, former head of clothing store Eidos Napoli

The village of Castelnuovo dell’Abate, near Montalcino

The Most Charming Small Towns

“Matera in Basilicata is a most magical place. I recently visited Matera for the first time and fell completely under its spell. It’s a day trip from a holiday in Puglia, or a perfect escape for a weekend stay.” —Margherita Missoni

Saluzzo in Piedmont. Totally underrated and beautiful. At the foot of the French Alps and wonderfully romantic. It’s off the highway from Torino to Genoa, which is basically how you get from France to Milan.” —David Prior, travel writer

“I love the little local ski resorts where the lifts are queue-free and you ski alongside slaloming locals in their colorful Lycra and eat delicious Italian lunches. San Domenico, in the Ossola valley, is expanding as an area with new lifts and runs and a five-star spa hotel opening next season.” —Emma O’Kelly

“We like to plan a day trips around a sagra, a community food festival dedicated to a particular seasonal ingredient, product, dish, or theme, be it cherries, porcini mushrooms, tortelli (Tuscan ravioli that come in various fillings depending on which part of Tuscany you visit), fried artichokes, chestnuts, calamari. They’re held all over Tuscany and on weekends you can always find one somewhere. There’s often live music, a market, or entertainment for the kids. It’s very informal, usually with long queues and long shared tables, but it’s a fantastic way to taste local delicacies you may not find in a restaurant—more often than not the volunteer cooks are the local grandparents of the village. The bonito festival in San Vincenzo on the Tuscan coast is a good one, with about 30 different stalls selling preparations by local fishermen, from grilled, just-caught sardines to whole boiled octopus, and the small cherry festival held in late spring around the old fortress of Lari, near Pisa, is worth stopping by just to get a bag full of fresh cherries and a paper cone full of cherry frittelle, deep fried sweet dough studded with fresh cherry pieces. One of our most memorable sagra visits was to a festival that was dedicated entirely to a dish of stewed wild boar’s head, a specialty of Castagneto Carducci near the wine region of Bolgheri, a dish—like many that you get at a good sagra—that you really cannot experience any other way.” —Emiko Davies

“I am amazed that Capri and Sardinia are still the islands that everyone goes to when there are so many great ones that fly under the radar: I love Ponza for its stylish crowd and guesthouses, Giglio for getting away from it all, and Salina for its laid-back but chic hotels and beautiful sea.” —Ondine Cohane, Traveler contributor

“With its crumbling walls and its medieval town, Civita di Bagnoregio is the cozy place I go to get out of Rome. A little more than 100 km north of Rome, Civita di Bagnoregio is known as “the dying town” due to the forces of nature—earthquakes, landslides, and floods—that have threatened its survival since the 17th century. You reach it by passing over a bridge and through a stone passageway. I love to stop on the bridge for a while and take a long walk in the little borgo.—Stella Jean

“I would definitely recommend Ravenna, a small city full of incredible Byzantine art and history. The city center is extremely nice and the beach is just a few minutes away. I always go there for long walks by the beach.” —Giuseppe Zanotti, designer

“There is a place in the heart of Tuscany, in the Chianti hills called Locanda dell’Amorosa, just outside the town of Sinalunga. It’s a 14th-century hamlet that has been transformed into a locanda (a small hotel), a perfect getaway for a few days in the region that is always in my heart.” —Vincenzo Castaldo, creative director of Milan-based jewelry house Pomellato

“I really love Carlo and Ennio Capasa’s family-run beach club in Otranto down in Puglia. It’s so homey and cute and right next to Carlo’s masseria, which my husband and I often visit. I also love Scicli in Sicily because it’s an old Baroque town filled with magnificent churches and many friends.” —J.J. Martin, writer and fonder of La DoubleJ

Electric Cookware Market: Industry Current Trends, Opportunities & Challenges

Cookware is a type of vessel or container in which food is prepared. Cookware comprises various cooking pots, such as frying pans and saucepans. These pots are intended for use on a range, cooktop or a stove. The material used in the manufacturing of cookware has a substantial effect on its performance, cost, and thermal conductivity. Materials used in manufacturing of cookware are pottery, metals, PTFE non-stick, coated and composite material, and others. Metals used in manufacturing of cookware are aluminum, copper, stainless steel, cast iron, and carbon steel. Aluminum metal has very good thermal conductivity and is lightweight.

It is also resistant to corrosion. Other non-metallic cookware materials include glass, ceramics, stone, and silicone. Electric cookware is one of the best examples of modern home appliance. As the name suggests, this cookware works on electricity. There are various types of electric cookware available in the market. Rice cookers, frying pans, slow cookers, tea and coffee makers, and egg boilers are types of electric cookware used in modern kitchens.

The electric cookware market is expected to expand at a decent rate during the forecast period. The demand for electric cookware is anticipated to increase due to rising urban population and ever increasing number of the middle class in developing countries such as China and India. Furthermore, due to improved lifestyle in emerging countries, disposable income of individuals has increased and people tend to buy stylish and new home appliances. These factors have forced companies to manufacture a variety of electric cookware.

Ease of use of electric cookware, stylish looks, safety of the product, convenient and faster mode of cooking, ease of cleaning, and eco friendliness are the factors which are also expected to contribute to the growth of the electric cookware market. Factors such as use of traditional cookware, cookware which is operated on the gas in some parts of the world, and health related concerns might act as a restraint to the growth of the electric cookware market.

Download PDF Brochure@ https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/sample/sample.php?flag=Brep_id=38540

The electric cookware market is segmented on the basis of product type, structure, end-user, and region. On the basis of product type, the market is segmented into rice cooker, slow cooker, deep fryer, fry pan, tea and coffee maker, and others. The electric cookware market is segmented on the basis of structure into built-in, and free stand. On the basis of end-user, the market is classified into residential and commercial. The commercial electric cookware market generates more revenue than the residential electric cookware market. This is because the cookware used for commercial cooking is generally electric cookware due to its ease of use, and is safer than other appliances.

Ripples Plus exhibitors to showcase Filipino brand in Ambiente 2018

PARTICIPANTS under the Regional Interactive Platform for Philippine Exporters (Ripples) Plus program will be part of the Ambiente 2018 from February 9 to 13 in Messe Frankfurt, Germany.

The local companies participating in Ambiente are Artisana Island Crafts, Silay Export, Marsse Tropical Timber Plantation, Red Slab Pottery and PumicUnlimited Ventures.

The RIPPLES Plus Program is headed by DTI-Export Marketing Bureau (EMB) in partnership with DTI-Regional Operations Group (ROG).

The program is assisting emerging micro, small, and medium enterprises  in the development of their products and services through strategic interventions such as trainings and capacity-building; investment, marketing and promotions, support for innovation, product development and design; market access facilitation through Mutual Recognition Arrangements  and certifications. These interventions or modes of assistance will ensure that the companies are competent and export-ready. The program has worked toward increasing the number of internationally competitive local product and services exporters with EMB at the helm.

The Philippines’s Ambiente 2018 participation is under the Lifestyle Philippines brand with the theme “Sustainability through Design,” in which the brand bridges the ecological gap between ethics and aesthetics, infusing nature and artisanship in crafting products for modern living.

Returning and new Filipino exhibitors from the home-décor sector will showcase products under the trade fair’s three categories: Dining, Giving, and Living.

Marsse Tropical Timber Plantation and Celestial Arts qualify for the Dining category, which covers table, kitchen, houseware and household products. GSG Paper is in the Giving category for their handmade and vibrant products that fit in the group’s varied gift selection.

Red Slab Pottery, Artisana Island Crafts, Silay Export, Tadeco Home Décor, PumiceUnlimited Ventures, 33 Point 3, Arden Classic, Chanalli, Finali Furniture Home Accessories, Freden Export, Larone Crafts and Nature’s Legacy are under the Living category’s home interiors and design collection.

The country has a trademark on featuring products with sustainability but, still have beautiful and excellent design. Most designers are inspired on plants and other natural resources abundant in the archipelago to materialize their vision.

This is the Philippines’s third collective participation at Ambiente, the leading international trade fair for consumer goods happening in Messe Frankfurt, Germany. Table settings, kitchen accessories and household products take the spotlight in the show. Gifts, interior trends and home concepts are also showcased. From abaca, raffia, bamboo, rattan, coconut husk, mother of pearl, fine bone china, artisan communities of the Philippines transform these renewable materials into consciously crafted objects, thus minimizing the negative impact on our country’s resources and at the same time, connecting the buyers with the Philippines’s natural environment.     The Philippines’s Ambiente 2018 participation is organized by the Citem, the export promotion arm of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). Citem is targeting $1.8 million worth of export sales.

“Ambiente 2018 is a great platform to strengthen Philippine companies’ network and client base in Germany and the rest of Europe. The trade fair is a wonderful experience for Filipino exporters because they have a chance to be acquainted with the international market’s latest trends,” Citem Executive Director Clayton Tugonon said.

Citem’s efforts to increase the global competitiveness of the country’s gifts, décor, and houseware sector are in line with the government’s latest target—to grow the sector by 20 percent in the next five years. The Board of Investments identified more than 2,400 handicraft enterprises in the Philippines. Majority of those are MSMEs located in the NCR, Cordillera Region, Region 5, and Region 12.
