 The French word for good is bon.  BON BON
in Solana Beach is that multiplied by two.
The store has a visual sensation created
by Rosemarie's creativity and
great imagination.
The store was converted from a historic
1920's auto garage into this eclectic
wonderland.  This is a furniture store
with a vintage shabby chic twist.

Along with the old there is a collection of
new product that Rosemarie gives
her own spin.   POM POM AT HOME,
AIDAN GRAY  have a home among the
antiques and collectibles.

There is something here for everyone,
and every taste.  The store is
constantly changing, moving things
around and mixing it up.

This is a fun place to come and shop
for your home or find a treasure for a friend.

The time-honored tradition of the family business
is alive and well at  FORTINI
 in San Luis Obispo.  Marisa and Ryan run
a full service design, and landscape business
 with a beautiful showroom to showcase
their work.
Ryans grand father came to San Luis Obispo
in 1922 and started a beer distributorship in
the very location that FORTINI stands today.

The store reflects the appreciation for authentic
products made from true artisan craftsmanship.
The Italian furniture actually comes from
Italy, with tables, benches, chests
made from wood reclaimed from vintage
Italian church pews, floors, and doors.

The PINE CONE HILL bedding
is a nice compliment.

I thought this was a cleaver way to show the
totes from DASH AND ALBERT.

Marisa along with her staff of designers
can go from the ground up in one room
or the entire house.

They show a wide variety of tiles, counter
tops and cabinets choices making it easier
for the consumer.  One stop shopping.

FORTINI has a warm and welcoming atmosphere
if you want to just look, pick up a small
 accessory or do some major design work.
