Whether we talk about the fashion industry or the furniture industry; the ‘Made-in-Italy’ tag has become synonymous with high-quality products of the most refined taste.
The Journey of Italian Furniture
The history of Italian furniture is as rich as the history of Italy itself. Since the Renaissance movement, Italy became one of the biggest hubs for art and design. Patron families like the Medicis and the Sforzas fueled the country’s artists; encouraging them to reach even greater heights as painters, architects and sculptors. By the 20th century, Italy became famous for yet another art form that seemed to be a symphony of all others: contemporary Italian furniture.
Italian designers completely redefined the way we perceive modern interiors. They utilized centuries of culture, the skills of local craftspeople and the ingenuity of unique materials and innovative techniques to create furniture items never seen before. Today, it is hard to imagine a fashionable interior space without an Italian presence.
