La Famiglia is a comprehensive collection and ranges from dining tables to benches with beautiful leather cushions, to coffee tables, poufs, mirrors, bookcases, conference tables and desks. All furniture is custom made and is available in a broad range of materials.
La Grande Mamma holds room for 22 sitting people, tapping into the Italian idiom of a large, lively family, but it can be made in any size suitable for the indvidual purpose and customer. It is custom made in an array of wooden materials like smoked oak, stained oak and wenge, and the finish can be raw or almost mirror like as the result of several layers of fine lacquer. The products are made by the finest cabinet makers in Denmark, Italy and Lithuania.
Family, food and friends are at the heart of the Italian way of life - and derived values, such as a strong sense of community and togetherness, are at the core of the Copenhagen based company La Famiglia Furniture. Being the first item of an entire family of furniture to come, this large wooden table captures the universe and embraces “la famiglia” - both the collection and the ones in real life. Of course the name of the table is La Grande Mamma.
“I designed ‘La Grande Mamma’ for my house in Sicily many years ago. To me the table represents togetherness and happy times - words deeply connected to my own family - hence the name La Famiglia. My Danish family could easily be Italian. In fact we are maybe even more Italian than most Italians. And being married to an Italian and having had his family around the past 22 years, I have a lot of first hand experience on family gatherings, giant lunches and lively dinners - and needed a spacious table to connect us all,” says designer Christina Arnoldi.
Since then, a wide range of other items has been designed by Christina
Arnoldi for LA FAMIGLIA FURNITURE.
Have a closer look at the beautiful velvet or leather ottoman, the elegant
wooden bookcases with brass decor, the amazing large wooden mirrors,
office desks with cable outlet, console, meeting tables, sideboards, benches, cushions and many more things is to come in the future.
Every item in the LA FAMIGLIA FURNITURE collection is unique to your
special needs and wishes.
These unique bookcases sprung from a classic square design with the 45° angle on the edges
and the elegant brass lines adorning the sides
— a characteristic mark for most LA FAMIGLIA FURNITURE.
The bookcases are obviously hand built by Europe’s finest cabinet makers, and will make the most elegant display for your literature.
They say it all begins with the woman or the man in the mirror. But what if the mirror starts by being
the sharpest looking piece of furniture in the room?
The LA FAMIGLIA mirror is a heavy construction of either walnut with steel decor or smoked oak with brass.
Some people see a desk. Other people a creative personal space.
The exceptional combination of white painted wood and high gloss lacquer is giving the desk a distinct and unique appearance, complying with the expected output of the person working behind it.
Brought up in Denmark, and having spent half her life in Italy, owner of and designer at La Famiglia Furniture, Christina Arnoldi, has a dual design citizenship: she is dedicated to the natural materials, handcrafted furniture and sensuous textures connected to a Nordic design tradition. At the same time she values the Italian larger-than-life approach to creating spaces that are more amore and less average. For Christina Arnoldi that results in furniture having both the Nordic stamina and quality and the Italian lightness and elegance: La Famiglia.
