Who owns www.italianmidcenturyfurniture.com ???

This website is owned by CGS GROUP INC a New York Incorporated company. Lucio Nuti, one of the owner, has imported Italian furniture into USA since 1988 dealing with some of the biggest modern Italian furniture companies such as B&B Italia, Maxaalto, Arflex and many more. His passion for antiques has always played a major role in his life and during his many trips to Italy he has developed a true passion for Italian design from the pre and post war era.  

Which kind of furniture do you sell?

We have imported and distributed Italian high end modern furniture into the USA for over 20 years.  Our passion for design, our Italian heritage and our extensive trips to Italy have led us to develop a strong interest in the history of Italian design and let us appreciate furniture from previous periods, such as Italian Art Deco and Post War. We are specialized in Italian Art Deco and Mid Century furniture.

What condition are your pieces in?

We strive ourselves in outsourcing original Art Deco and Mid Century Italian products.

Typically our pieces are in excellent condition or, at the very least,  they are in vintage condition with wear that is consistent with age and use.  While we do not purchase or sell pieces that have any structural damage our products may, and will, show signs of age and wear inherent to older and used pieces. When possible we try to preserve all the original hardware including the original keys, locks and brass.  Whereupon there may be a need for restoration, to the extent possible, we try to maintain the integrity of the original piece consistent with the vision of the original designer and manufacturer.  In order to maintain that integrity we require that our team of restorers use the same methods, tools and products that were used upon manufacture.   

When purchasing original vintage furniture which may be 60, 70 or 80 years old any purchaser must consider these factors. After all you are purchasing products which have a history and a life of their own own, lived on by several decades and sometimes products which have survived even a World War! You are purchasing a piece of Italian history!
