The lifestyle of a whole region is reflected in the Mediterranean style of furnishing. Italian furniture is pure joie de vivre and stands for good food, stylish ambience, beautiful fashion and playful design. Walnut and rosewood (Tulip) play a major role in furniture design. Italian furniture is preferably made of polished walnut or rosewood. The reddish-gold tone of the wood captures the sun’s rays, the soft shine and the fine grain look classically noble. Antique charm combines with modern aesthetics and creates furniture with a particularly light appearance. Italy is a land of contrasts: the pulsating life of the big cities meets contemplative rural cosiness. By contrast, Italian furniture radiates pure harmony in form and design.
