How to choose the best gift
Nowadays the demand for custom design items created on customers' needs is increasingly recurring.
Taylor-made, the practice of creating products with specific characteristics by request is not just a recent fad or trend, but it is the best way to create something exactly as you want it.
There are various reasons why people might want custom-made things. For example, to stand out from the crowd, the need for precise dimensions, or a decorate something that matches to a particular environment.

The first painting to be stolen from a museum was the Mona Lisa, on August 21, 1911. Spanish artist Pablo Picasso was the first to be suspected…
A story about art collecting could start like this, a famous painter wishing to own one of the most important works of art ever. It is on record that Picasso himself upset one of his reviewers with such a cruel joke: they were chatting along the seaside and the Catalan artist enjoyed drawing on the sand. The reviewer was horrified because the works of art would be lost and because Picasso would sacrifice his own work to the sea.
However, as Mona Lisa is most valuable and out of reach yet, other works of art are affordable.
A quality work of art would create a sense of prestige and elegance in anyone's home.
