Cattelan Italia seamlessly combines elegance and function by blending classic lines and contemporary style to suit your tasteful living.

Table Matters

Like every masterpiece, the labor of love that goes into it is all borne from passion. Fervor for family, ideas, crafting raw materials into furniture and for an icon to be a reality in evolution - all these are imbued in founder Giorgio Cattelan’s philosophy to form the worldwide leading firm in production and distribution of furniture complements. As the youngest amongst six other brothers and the son of a famous carpenter in Thiene, near the province of Vicenza in Italy, Giorgio Cattelan has grown up with a penchant and flair for creating furniture. This tradition still burns bright among five out of the six Cattelan brothers. In 1979, he founded Cattelan Italia with his wife, Silvia to introduce small marble complements and tables in different sizes for export. By 1989, they expanded their collection to cater to market needs by including dining tables, chairs, bookcases and other complements. Not limited to the types of materials used, their furniture is made from glass, metal, leather and wood and bear impeccable taste and style, with close attention to comfort.

TABLE TEMPTATIONS With the brand’s modern designs, their latest collection of tables is suitable for any home with precious details of elegance and sophistication that is sure to lend an enchanting appeal to any abode. GEOMETRIC GRANDEUR Designed by Girogio Cattelan himself, the Elliot geometrical table is made from steel and lacquered graphite base with oblique pyramids. Its 15mm top features burned oak with irregular edges to represent sublime modernity and can be adapted to every room as it comes in round, rectangular, extendable, in white or graphite painted extra clear glass or white Carrara or Emperador marble. With its artistic aesthetics, it makes for a majestic statement piece in one’s home and is also ideal for entertaining guests with an optional central swivelling tray in glass or marble matching the top. AS YOU LIKE IT Whether you prefer wood or glass, the Spyder Wood table top is interchangeable. Its base comes in matt white, matt graphite varnished steel, stainless steel or Canaletto walnut. For a rustic touch, its top in walnut Canaletto bears irregular natural solid wood edges. Choose from a variety of dimensions to cater your needs.

EVOLVING ICON In 1995, Giorgio’s sons Lorenzo and Paolo Cattelan joined the company to support him in the management of different departments. The family then bought over the famous Florentine company ARKETIPO in January 2011, thus heralding Cattelan Italia’s foray into design upholstery. Today, the brand is an icon in evolution and exports to 150 countries globally with more than 350 highly qualified dealers. The brand prides itself in creating a holistic, functional and gorgeous lifestyle based on research, design and unparalleled quality furniture. During the Salone del Mobile 2013, also known as the Milan Furniture Fair, where the key word was development of styles and technologies, Cattelan Italia showcased their contemporary designed products that bear the characteristics of the company’s attention to the production process and expert craft knowledge.

The house is the icon of loved belongings. Everyone wants to be close to comfortable elements. The word “beautiful” for me is above all “functionality”. – Giorgio Cattelan
