made in italy


When we think of the main furniture styles, we certainly cannot forget one that is known and appreciated all over the world: the Italian furniture style, unique and unmistakable in its various forms, an expression of typically Italian versatility. Even without a clearly defined color palette or ever-recurring shapes or decorations, it stands out for its attention to detail and quality, together with the constant search for solutions to combine aesthetics with the functionality of spaces. The house and the way of furnishing it reflect the desire for comfort for those who live there and for their guests, with the taste for conviviality that characterizes us.

The strength of Italian design furniture lies in the creativity and know-how of highly specialized companies and workers, a fundamental piece of a style that is based on craftsmanship and territorial specificities which then become excellences loved from North to South throughout the country. We are talking, for example, of the timeless Italian cement tiles, but also of tables and chairs with an unmistakable design, of materials such as solid wood and precious marbles that, skilfully worked, can take on always different shapes and functions. Quality of raw materials and workmanship also give life to another characteristic of the Italian furniture: solid and durable pieces and accessories, that can be handed down from generation to generation, capable of being current in any environment.

The contrasts that are often created by combining elements of different style, for example modern furniture in a rustic setting, or classic finishes and contemporary design pieces, are also characterizing the Italian furniture, managing to obtain a harmonious and interesting whole. The sartorial approach to furnishings typical of the Italian style thus allows you to customize the rooms to reflect your taste as well as your functional needs.

Versatile by definition, the Italian-style furniture has some recurring features based on the geographical location in terms of mood, colors and materials. Starting from Northern Italy, we find a more modern and essential style, with light colors and well-defined lines, without too many frills. The spaces are open and multifunctional, and materials such as glass and metal find ample space. Moving towards the Alpine areas, on the other hand, wood becomes the real protagonist of a furniture that finds modern answers to the question: how to furnish a house in the mountains?

In central Italy the wood is also that of the exposed beams, combined with stone, bricks and wrought iron finishes. Warm colors and a fireplace make the rooms particularly warm and welcoming, as do the wooden furniture and pieces of local craftsmanship that underline the strong link with tradition. Finally, in the South we find the most vibrant colors for coverings, ceramics and furnishing fabrics characterized by patterns inspired by Mediterranean nature. The most used materials are wicker, cork, marble and terracotta, that perfectly encapsulate the charm of the place.
