Brand Feature: Borzalino
Borzalino was founded in 1976 but according to the principal the company has deep roots in the great artisan tradition that has produced beautiful furniture in the Tuscan hills of Italy. This is truly a family business – the experience and the wealth of knowledge of the founder Galeazzo Fedi is now in the most capable hands of his wife, Romana, his daughter Cristiana and his grandson Matteo.
The company manufactures sofas and armchairs – handmade with patience, skill and true artistry. The fit and finish on any of these pieces is flawless. Their attention to detail is amazing and is what makes this company so very special. Housed in a modern factory deep in the Tuscan Hills and staffed by locals who have worked there almost from its inception makes you realize how proud this family must be of their company and what a wonderful corporate culture they must have.
Their product is clothed in beautiful leathers (116 at last count) and the fabrics include collections from Jim Thompson and Sonia Rykiel. Couture for sure! The ability to cover your piece in leather, fabric or a combination of both means that when your product arrives at your home it is truly “custom made” just for you.
We see this company as a beautiful addition to a long list of small Italian family businesses that we have the pleasure of working with. If we have any questions a quick email or phone call and we have our answers. Borzalino is a strong and important partner for us and we are proud to carry their furniture in our showroom.
