SECOLO - NEW FURNITURE COMPANY WITH A STRONG ITALIAN IMPRESSION

This is the result of influences from what are and were the dogmas and stylistic principles of the old Italian design era.

Pair that with the bold characteristics of English culture and a desire to create iconic pieces, that meet traditional tastes but with contemporary and unorthodox twists, and you have SECOLO: a company whose products range from furniture to tables to accessories.
