Italy is well known as a trendsetter and design leader. For many years, the country has been the home of some of the greatest furniture designers such as Gio Ponti, Ettore Sottsass, and Franco Albini.

Italian design is synonymous with luxury, and the true essence of sophistication and styling. Since the Renaissance, in the early 15th century, Italian-style dominated the design and architectural world, becoming forever linked to luxury and elegance. Today we can see these influences turned into perfect craftsmanship and obsession with details.

These particularities evolved and led us to two main Italian design styles – Old World Ornate, which is very traditional, bold and luxurious, and Modern, which is also luxurious, but cleaned-lined and minimalistic. Lately, the Modern style is dominating the minds and hearts of many people. And the reasons maybe are its practical, beautifully designed pieces that goes along very well with different tastes and personalities.
