These Fireplace Tools Prove We’ve Come a Long Way Since Rubbing Sticks
Playing with fire never looked better
Pretziada — Sardinian for “precious” — is a new design studio based on the Italian island of Sardinia. They partner with local Sardinian artisans who make traditional items like vases and rugs, giving them a platform to connect with contemporary design audiences.

We’ll admit that a bucket of tools and mountain-shaped andirons seem a bit humdrum. But these items have a geometric appeal and rustic burnish that’s artistic and subtly utilitarian. The poker, the tongs and the ash bucket are all heavy in the hand, giving you a reason to play with fire.
Other goods worth your consideration: the design studio’s pocket knife, complete with a juniper handle, and the classic shepard boot, the choice of footwear popular on the southend of island.
For more details — and stories about life in Sardinia — head on over to Pretziada.
