Sara Tofanelli-Barroso

Sara Tofanelli-Barroso Sara grew up in Chico, California.  She started working in the family business (Nantucket Home) at a young age.  She learned the family business, learned to save and learned to travel with her savings.  After high school she left Chico to live in Italy and travel throughout Europe.  It was here that her love for food, coffee, language and culture flourished.  Upon returning, she attended Chico State, met her future husband, John (who was also intrigued with traveling), graduated with a degree in English Literature and Italian and left Chico with him to live and work in Torino, Italy.  Sara currently is the ‘shopkeeper’ at Nantucket Home.  She spends her time away from work playing with her children, dogs, and husband.  And whenever she can find spare time she enjoys reading her favorite blogs on everything from design to food to lifestyle.

Ilona Cronan is one of our most treasured local Chico artists. We just love her use of color and movement. Her unique paintings are not only interesting, but will look great for any room in the house.
You can find her pieces sprinkled around the showroom during any time of the year. Check out below what great pieces we currently have in the showroom! She creates custom pieces and really knows her way around a canvas. She paints for those who love and are passionate about art.

We have the great pleasure of having Ilona herself spend time with us in the showroom on Saturday May, 2nd.  Stop by to chat and spend some one on one time with this inspiring artist!

Guests got to collaborate one-on-one with the chef to design their own 4-course menu and 4 high-end wine varietals will be hand-chosen to best accompany the meal of choice.
