very couple of months Patrick Aumont and Car olina Pierpont take a buying trip to Europe. “Most of the time it’s to France and Italy,” says Aumont, where they gather antiques and works of art for their shop in Summerland, Cali fornia. “Europa has some of the finest Italian and Spamsh Re naissance and Baroque furniture around, and there’s always a fun and interesting collection of art to choose from in the bargain,” says Marc Appleton. Old Mas ters, mainly portraits, are fuvored by the owners. French and Italian classic modernist furniture and garden statuary are included in

the mix. “In addition to the fur niture, I like their architectural garden elements and have found a number of choice European limestone fountains there,” adds the architect (above, by a foun tain from the south of France, with Aumont, left, Pierpont and a collection of maiolica). “They have adventurous and exquisite taste that makes Europa a de lightful stop on the way to and from Santa Barbara.” Europa Summerland Antiques & Fine Art 2345 Lillie Ave. Summerland, CA 93067
