Furniture from the Veneto

As with all Italian industries, the furniture sector is primarily concentrated in one region, so our search for vanity units naturally led us to The Veneto. Stretching from the Dolomite Mountains to the Adriatic Sea, Veneto has as its capital Venice, once the cradle of the renowned Serenissima, the rich and powerful republic that exerted its influence between the 7th and 18th centuries. Synonymous with canals, carnivals and romance, it is perhaps the cosmopolitan and exhuberant character of the former trading empire coupled with its wealth and the subsequent proliferation of countryside villas for the Venetian elite that initially spurred on local furniture craftsmen to achieve superior levels of artisanship and artistry. That search for something different, be it a new design, material or finish is as apparent as ever today within the many specialist furniture companies that still occupy the region.
