Italian Leather Sofa

In Stock In the USA ?

The Rotola fine Italian leather sectional (above) is listed by the factory as in stock in the USA. But it sells so fast no one can keep it in stock. If the item you order is in stock in one of the warehouses in the USA it will ship fast. If not it could be on the water or in the factory in Italy. You have to hope for the best and prepare for the worst with most authentic Italian furniture. All European hand selected hides.

Italian Stone Furniture

August Vacation

This solid stone green onyx Italian coffee table is another example of the extraordinary contemporary furniture available from Italy today. Mined in an old river bed near Rome, Italy and custom made by master craftsmen who have been shaping stone for 2,000 years. Italian furniture is beyond extraordinary. It is hard believe that such quality is till available today. But it takes time to quarry an onyx coffee table (photo above) and shape it to perfection by hand, and then ship it half way around the world to the USA. Order your Italian furniture months in advance. Italy is on vacation during the entire month of August. This tradition goes all the way back to the Roman Emperor Augustus. When asked to reform the calender Augustus named the month of August after himself. Augustus has been dead for about 2,000 years. Many Italian furniture dealers would like to dig up his remains and kill him again. Regardless, a month off in August is an old tradition in Italy and it is part of Italian culture, like it or not.
