With a black exterior and huge French windows, Solo's modern architecture seems rugged yet stable. The self-labeled gallery sells stylish home decor and furniture--all decorated by designer Zheng Tang-huang. A lot of the hotels and even restaurants like the Wein Restaurant & Lounge, are patrons of this trendy designer. The merchandise sold here at Solo Gallery is mainly from two Italian chair series－Creazioni and Vopio. The brand Creazioni offers a collection of tables and chairs that utilize gold and silver tin foil to create a fashionable look. Shown in an exhibition in Milan earlier this year, the collection can now be seen in stores around Taichung. The Vopio series puts a large emphasis on pattern and hand-sculpted details. While at the shop, browse through the catalouge. If you see something you like, the staff can order it from the factories or vendors in Italy. It will take about three months for delivery.
