Restoration performed in Italy by our Italian restorer. Leather: we have the chance to choose different types of leather, we often choose the highest quality leather, from Italian tannery which has a tradition since 1860. The leather we generally use are aniline leathers, all natural non chemically treated at the surface. This allow for strength, softness and rich deep color and all the beauty of the leather is clear and visible, some animal skin characteristics such as beautiful leather veins may be visible and totally normal. These are the highest quality leathers. These leathers are generally more delicate than commercial grade, but more resistant in time. These leathers become more beautiful with time and use, acquiring a patina overtime and showing signs of use. Should you require other types of leather, or other material please let us know, we work with the major textiles companies.

Soriana is an iconic Italian Design Piece, great example of Italian Modernism, won the Compasso D'Oro in 1969 one of the most important design award of that time; the design idea of the Soriana was to express beauty and comfort by using a whole bundle of fabric or leather hold by single steel clamp. The Soriana Collection is a collector piece and part of the history of Italian design destined to increase in value with the time. True Italian Modernism.

Italian 20th Century Design: Afra & Tobia Scarpa

Afra and Tobia Scarpa have put their know-how into products ranging from home furniture to clothing. Their works can be found in museums across the USA and Europe as in the Moma and the Louvre. They won several awards such as the prestigious Italian “Compasso D’Oro” with the Soriana design, and and the International Forum Design in 1992. Tobia’s father Carlo Scarpa was also a great architect and designers from the Mid Century Period and worked with famous names such as historic Ventian Murano glass company Venini, where also Tobia worked later on. Some of the major works of the two architects include the Coronado Sofa for B&B Italia (1966) and the Soriana Sofa for Cassina 1970. With Gavina they created the “Bastiano” sofa (1961) and they designed the "Papillona" and "Pierrot" lamps for Flos in the 1977 and 1990.  Their works extended to fashion where they thrived in a collaboration with fashion house Benetton. Their products played an important role in the history of Italian Design and are thriving in the Mid Century market.
