Italy furniture style

Italy is famous for both its food and for the style and elegance of its table dressing. Our table settings are unrivaled in simplicity and luxury. We say simplicity and luxury, but there is also a focus on craftsmanship and respect for family traditions, combined with a measure of pride, which justifies that bit of creative folly that sets us apart.

Italian Table Setting

For dinner in a country house or on a terrace by the sea, the table setting will be more colorful and rustic than it is on other occasions. But here, too, nothing is left to chance. With a brocaded linen tablecloth or damask linen in a vivid color by Frette, one of the largest linen producers in Italy, the dishes, the pitchers, and the soup plates should be from Ceramica di Caltagirone. This ceramic ware, from a small town in Sicily, features lively designs and colors, with decorations that often date back to the Middle Ages. Craft traditions have been handed down from father to son for centuries. A service whose plates have so much personality may be accompanied by flatware of simple lines to make the whole a bit lighter, such as the Caccia model in silver designed by Luigi Caccia Dominomi for Alessi, a true classic in international design.
