The great little things in Ub, Florence

Georges Bernanos once wrote, “Little things seem nothing, but they give peace”.

The people behind Ub, in Florence, agree. Their space is alive with small objects that have drifted off, lost and then found again – pillows, vases, paintings, necklaces, and much more; they seek out these treasures with an expert eye, and a heightened sense of where their urban refuges may be; they pick up exiled items and sometimes transform them, giving them a new, unusual shape before releasing them again.

At Ub, you’ll find decor items and furniture, as well as scarves, panels, carpets. And even a wonderful collection of wallpaper, partly inherited from a famous old shop in Florence: a colorful archive of decorative paper that spans over fifty years of history.

“The little things are infinitely the most important,” Arthur Conan Doyle had Sherlock Holmes say. Another quotations that certainly rings true at Ub.
