In the workshops of the historic district San Frediano in Florence, Silvano Grifoni, the founder of the company, has learnt the art of wood carving and how to transform wood into highly valuable pieces of furniture that over time have become a part of the most classy homes, not only in Italy but in the world.
The company is currently run by the founder’s son, Andrea Grifoni, who has learnt master craftsmanship in the family workshops and is also a History of Art graduate. His thesis was indeed about the wood carvers in Florence and Siena in the 19th century. As an art enthusiast, he has organised the company with a design studio that analyses in every single product the respect for classic shapes designed for contemporary homes. For this reason they are simplified with traditional gold and silver finishes or finishes that range from neutral colours to vibrant or pickled colours, which in turn are combined with fabrics manufactured by the most prestigious Italian companies.
