As a fifth generation with 25 years of experience we source the best furniture manufacturers worldwide. Times are changing, and they are changing fast. Today’s consumers are well-informed and are always carrying an endless source of real-time information in their pockets: their smartphones. But in times where everything seems accessible to anyone at any time, we believe it is most important to be able to rely on a trustworthy partner when taking important decisions. Our partners are chosen with care, as they have to achieve the goals we set and keep the promises we make. Some have been with us for 25 years, others come and go because we always seek better solutions and cater to changing trends. Most of our brands are still family-owned, as over the years we have found out that these companies assure the greatest reliability, commitment and over-all quality. Over time we learned that in the end not only the product, but also the people behind it make the difference. Whether we propose a basic school chair or a refined artisanal design piece, we choose those partners who bring value for money and share our passion to create beauty and quality.
Industrial design: PEDRALI
Historically our most important partner since inception of our company has been Pedrali, a family owned Industrial Design company that has set the benchmark in the contract market for more than 50 years. Established in 1963 in Palazzolo sull’Oglio, Pedrali is an Italian company that produces contemporary design furniture for contract and residences at their headquarters near Bergamo. Their collection is the result of rigorous and careful research that is realized in the form of design products made of metal, plastic, wood and upholstery.
Pedrali believes in producing durable products, made from high quality raw materials that are recyclable and eco-compatible. They ensure sustainability from the design stage up until the end production phase with a 100% made in Italy result.
Mater is a conscious and ethical design brand with a strong design philosophy and great craftsmanship. Through collaborations with an external base of established and fresh design talent, Mater combines exclusive high-end furniture and lighting, with working methods that support people, local craft traditions and the environment. The aesthetic of Mater has clear references to Scandinavian minimalism and the designs are all made with sustainably or ethically sourced materials.
Recently they launched the “Ocean” collection that looks back into classic design traditions, truly rethinking the rationale behind the relaunch of design classics. Originally designed in 1955 by Nanna and Joergen Ditzel for their own personal outdoor use, “Ocean” represents sustainable and innovative thinking and was awarded Wallpaper* Magazines Design award in early 2019. The collection is made of used fishnet, hard plastic waste and a light metal frame.
The story of Baxter is all about the DNA characterizing the Italian family companies, sprouting from the love of a material and carrying around the manufacturing culture and craftmanship. This family story starts from the hide passion and grows thanks to the human capital. It is quite a young story, dating back only to 1990, but looking way back in time, to a century-old entrepreneurial tradition, flourished on the Brianza fertile land, that has always been producing the excellence in high-end furniture and that today pursues in its creations for all the beauty lovers. This is a 100% Italian story beaming into an International panorama. One that starts from the reinterpretation of the English taste and evolves, through the art of leather working and shaping, into the production of unique collections.
