Savor the flawless comfort and unique style of the guest suites at Velona’s Jungle Luxury Suites, where many of the elegant objets d’art and furnishings date from the mid century, when the family’s patriarch – a respected Florentine art dealer – began collecting pieces during his travels in Italy and abroad. His fabulous finds from trips through Florence, Rome, Naples, London, Paris, and Vienna in the 1950’s were paired exquisitely with the prestigious antique and period furnishings from his gallery, creating a one-of-a-kind home.
Subsequent generations added to the original collection, carefully selecting works by contemporary artists, fabrics and decorative accents by favorite designers, and choice books and sculpture…each chosen with the same care and passion as their grandfather and together creating the glorious whole that is now Velona’s Jungle.
