Umbria has traditionally been a creative hub with artisanal families using local materials to provide furniture and household items. These skills learned through the generations are honed and adapted to my 21st century designs.
Blacksmiths working in bronze, brass and steel with differing patinations. Carpenters working in oak, beech or simple builder’s planks. Upholsters web, spring and cushion in silk and leather. We are fortunate to have them all.
New spaces created from the old soul of a stone building often cry out for the right furniture item and sometimes a new piece is born. Good that they can also compliment a contemporary space.
