That Italian home you’ve always dreamed of, Fendi Suites is a seven-apartment pied-à-terre styled with contemporary art and modern design, a harbinger of renaissance Rome and a game-changer for the city. Rome’s centro storico has always been the epicentre of activity but even more so with the arrival of Fendi Private Suites, which is located above Palazzo Fendi, the brand’s flagship store. Situated on the crossroads of Via del Corso and Via dei Condotti, the suites are just a five-minute walk from the Spanish Steps and its fashionable environs, and 10 minutes from the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain, the latter of which was beautifully restored thanks to Fendi’s patrimony project FendiforFountains. From its ground-floor private entrance – a razor-cut travertine vestibule where sentry-like desk staff and guards act as gatekeepers – to the current season-clad concierge team, the distinctive Fendi design acumen looms large. The living space is both gallery and lounge, decorated with statement furniture such as undulating Campana Brothers sofas, vintage Fritz Hansen chairs, mirrors by Gio Ponti and ephemeral Lindsey Adelman lamps. Its wall houses a collection of gorgeous art books, limited edition Fendi baguettes that double as museum-worthy contemporary art, and Fendi fur-covered tablets.
