Where to Buy It
New York dealer Brian Kish is the go-to guy for Italian mods (briankish.com), and gallery owner Jim Elkind of Lost City Arts (lostcityarts.com) travels the world in search of 20th-century design so you won’t have to. But to unleash a mother lode of Fontana Arte stashed at antiques shops around the country, try 1stdibs.com.
Kish warns that not all the Fontana Arte pieces on the market is vintage. "Fontana Arte is still in business and periodically reissues its great hits, just as Venini reissues [Carlo] Scarpa and Ponti." If you prefer early vintages, proceed with caution.
