Anthony Bacigalupo is an American-born artist, entrepreneur, and photographer. Together with his Icelandic wife, Ýr Káradóttir, they have a four year-old daughter, Mía Isabella, and eight-month-old son, Úlfur Antonio. They live in the small harbor town of Hafnarfjörður just south of Reykjavik, and are the owners and designers of Reykjavík Trading Co. where they produce small-batch, handcrafted goods from Iceland with a California influence.
We first met up with Anthony and Mía at the famous Blue Lagoon geothermal spa. Because of abundant hydroelectric and geothermal power throughout the country, Iceland runs almost entirely on renewable energy. After a relaxing time floating in the geothermal seawater, we headed to Anthony's beautifully curated home and took a rainy stroll along the sea to their favorite local bakery for an afternoon coffee and snack.
