Handmade in Italy: Our luxurious indoor collection

Meet our luxurious indoor collection

Have you explored our luxurious indoor collection, handmade in Northern Italy to our exacting specifications? First, let us set the scene… Transport yourself to a peaceful village nestled in Lombardy, Italy, home to one of world’s best-upholstered furniture suppliers. It’s a secret place where tradition meets cutting edge technology, a truly breath-taking locale with seemingly never-ending views across rolling valleys and azure lakes. You stop on the way for an exquisitely crafted ristretto accompanied by a slice of traditional panettone – worth the trip all on their own. A few bends later you reach your final destination: the discrete “officine” where the magic truly takes place. There you are greeted by two generations of the family-owned and operated company that has won many prizes over the years, and you know you’re somewhere really rather special.

This place is where the team at Design Warehouse have seen their vision for an opulent and chic indoor collection gradually come to life. Traditionally founded in outdoor luxury furniture, Design Warehouse had long sought to expand outside its current outdoor collections, broadening its expertise and sense of design artistry to introduce luxury furnishings for interior spaces. Lombardy is where they found the artisans who would help them brings their dream to fruition in the form of a concise, contemporary collection of stunning pieces designed and manufactured by hand in Italy, featuring the very best in quality fabric and craftsmanship by Design Italia and ERBA.

The lush Petalo is crafted from solid and multi-layered wood covered in fabric (tessuto) or velvet (lario velluto) over non-deformable polyurethane foam, atop solid wooden feet.
