While relaxing with your family, is there anything better than losing yourself in the soft embrace of a luxury sofa? A sofa is the key element in every luxury living room and the furniture of the entire room revolves around it.

A central piece of furniture as far as both aesthetics and functionality are concerned, the sofa’s two main tasks are lending personality and a unique dash of style and elegance to the living area and, at the same time, guaranteeing proper comfort for your moments of relaxation at home.

The sofas are produced by the artisans of the workshop Chelini Firenze, by following the traditional methods that have made the Made in Italy label world-renowned. Italy’s artisan creativity has made our country a style icon and a benchmark for the entire world. Creativity, attention to detail, refined style and high quality materials distinguish Tuscany’s handicraft, that finds its roots in the Middle Ages. Experience, mastery, competence, technique and the Italian artisans’ extraordinary talent and manual skills that the entire world envies cannot be possibly replaced by machinery.

Every single creation designed by the prestigious company Chelini is meticulously hand-finished and its key components are aesthetics and comfort, as you can see from the wide range of fine woods and hides, and the high quality fabrics and padding.

A crown jewel of Italy’s reputation all over the world, the renown Tuscan company Chelini, established in Florence in 1898, is passionately dedicated to producing refined furniture, luxury sofas and furnishing accessories, exclusively handcrafted.

The sofa is one of the most heavily used items in the whole home, so it needs to be a designer and functional furnish. A precious sofa!

Whether it’s lined or woven, whether it’s meant for luxury or minimalist rooms, the sofa must be chosen according to the style of the room in which it will be placed. Here are some tips.

Modern luxury sofas

Clean lines, a charming design, a contemporary soul and fine fabrics become the perfect portrayal of a classy and refined modernity.

Classical luxury sofas with an antique and refined taste

An emblem of the past taste, the classical style is evergreen and above all temporary trends. It’s one of the most sought-after options for the most exclusive residences, for high-standing villas and aristocratic palaces that preserve old furniture and beautiful antiques.

The classical style is able to bring back to life that long-gone atmosphere distinguished by style, refinement and great taste.

Round shapes, embroidered chair arms, sinuous seatbacks, carvings and meticulously hand-finished elegant decorations are the features that distinguish the classical sofas by Chelini. The lining is another typical feature of Italian luxury sofas and it recalls the past values of daily life.

The colour palette includes warm and natural colours such as beige, purple, Marsala and magenta. Some sofas are available in deep dark blue, violet and charcoal grey.

Crafted from first-class materials and rich in decorations and carvings, the classical sofas by Chelini recall old-time atmospheres.
