Cierre is all about leather furniture and attention to detail. Like many other design furniture companies, Cierre is an Italian company, founded by Mr. Romano Conficconi, who started the business with his wife Cesarina in 1972. Since then, a lot of things have changed, while the business has maintained its core offerings, which are leather sofas, armchairs, beds and so on. Cierre bridges the gap between traditional leather treatment and original methods, creating something that is truly unique to the company. You can see that in their sofas, which not only exude luxury, but also tell a unique story, all on their own.
Each product is in fact manufactured from expert artisans by hand, with all of the individual uniqueness that this brings to the collection. Not one piece is the same from any other sold through official Cierre channels. This incredible design company has been thriving for 46 years now and they show no sign of stopping their magnificent work, which is all the better for all of us. What drives the company forward is a desire for innovation: no other family like the Conficconi family can do this in such an original way and that is what differentiates Cierre from the competition.
Romano Conficconi founded Cierre with his wife Cesarina in 1972. He remained the president for several decades before alternating with his brother. Romano was responsible for growing the production department, starting with only a few employees and then to one hundred.
But he is mostly well-known for incorporating the entire production cycle within the company. From working with unprocessed raw materials to product assembly, the entire process was done in one place.
As a family-run company, other members play a vital role. Stefano Conficconi is Chairman of the Board of Directors of Cierre Imbottiti, Alberto Conficconi is Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors, and Gianmaria Conficconi is part of the creative department and the first member of the third generation of the family to be involved in Cierre.

Coupled with the desire for innovation and Cierre brings to the market upholstered furniture that showcases the passion and skills of the people behind it.
The company is founded on the philosophy of extremely high attention to detail. This enables them to manufacture quality products, including those that others may have overlooked. Great attention to the environment is also part of their business model.
Stefano Conficconi is not only Chairman of the Board but also the designer of the Cierre’s main collections and deals first-hand with the leather used in the company production.
In terms of design, inspirations are drawn from the surrounding environment and the many elements found in it. Based on them, unique and original designs are made.
Water is the basis for some of Cierre’s creative concepts that bring purity and transparency to any space. Music inspired a new collection with pop-chic influence. Japanese Haiku’s short and poetic lines resulted in a collection of delicate volumes and clear-cut lines.
There are many other elements that serve as protagonists in the Cierre collection, but they all promise premium quality products designed for customer satisfaction.
