Once upon a time
A backward glance
Lots of charming tales start with a tiny workshop that eventually turns into a revolutionary firm – but for Tondelli this is not simply a fairytale, it’s a true story.
In 1954, Tondelli senior started working on bespoke pieces for those Italian families in pursuit of a fresh, exquisite look, all of their own. And that is how, from day one, Tondelli became widely known for using the most beautiful varieties of wood to create one-of-a-kind pieces.
Becoming Lorenzo Tondelli
When Tondelli’s sons took over the family business, their vision and style confirmed that rational endeavor and creative fantasy could coexist on all levels. As a matter of fact, the combination of the two brought success to the brand, now named after the younger brother, Lorenzo.
Lorenzo showed mature artistic skills from an early age, hypnotized by his father’s gestures. Step by step, seizing every opportunity to learn, the young boy became a man — a designer, querying the ordinary logic behind the entire furniture industry.
His clear-cut, independent thinking has led the company to refine its identity and, as a result, to widen its production.
From Modena to the World: a travelling collection
Thanks to our handcrafters’ full cooperation, we etched the lines of our deepest desires. Together we explore every inch of artisanal craftsmanship with firm guidelines, like cherishing tradition yet fostering discovery. The Collection’s true identity finally came to life in the early 2000s, ready to enter the global market. Its soulful items, conceived and born by exploring the dichotomy between the traditional and the exotic, today bring charm and joy to hotels, villas, yachts, and homes — from European cities to the Far East.
Sometimes, one size doesn’t fit all. If you are dreaming of something that is truly yours, we will take care of it. This is not about just embossing initials into leather or cloth: it’s about satisfying a keen wish for originality and comfort.
