How a dining table comes to life?

blog1
Dining tables are one of our flagship product.
Together with entertainment units and bookcases, tables are highly appreciated thanks to the wide range of models, sizes, shapes and with the possibility to customize them according to the customer need.
Buying a dining table in our website is very easy.
You choose the shape, size, colour, you add the table to your basket and that’s done!
But behind this quick selection, there is a huge work made by our artisans.
Let’s explain every step that we do in order to satisfy our customers:
First we have to pick up the table from the warehouse.
It could look something easy, but is not.
One area of our warehouse is dedicated to our tables but, due to the limited space that we have, all tables are stored disassembled.
Depending on the model purchased, our staff has to pick up the top, legs, pedestal, extensions…

Once all the pieces are picked up, then it’s time to make them ready to be paint. This means that each part is individually smoothed using sandpaper, sometimes is necessary to plaster some parts and then smooth them with sandpaper in order to have the smoother, uniform, without impurities or defects, surface possible.
The hand work here is really important, indispensable. Paying attention to have a good surface means have a good polishing and a satisfying result.

If the surface pass the quality control, then the table goes to the polishing department where is made the real “make up“ of the product.
Even the polishing department has different steps to do.
First is applied a background colour and then a topcoat. The paint is handmade with spray gun.

What if a table is in two tone colour? For example let’s think about our table with Cherry colour top and white colour structure. First thing we varnish the top in cherry colour and only when the top is completely dried we isolate it and go on varnishing the band and the structure in white colour. The close off the table is a handmade work that needs patience and care, it’s a long process but is worth the result ​​​​​​.

Since all processes are handmade by artisans and due to the long time needed to well dry the wood, processing time for a two tone product is longer than standard.

Each table is unique!  Who buy our table knows that is a unique piece, completely handcrafted in wood, which is an alive material that never looks the same. The wood grain, the cut direction, the inlay… look always different and extremely charming. Here is where the true workmanship comes out.

But let’s get back to our dining table, because is not over.
After the drying process the whole table come back to our warehouse for the most important stage: packaging and shipping. During the years, we understood how important and essential is investing time and using high quality materials to make a appropriate packaging.
Maybe you don’t know that packaging of  each table, round or square, big or small, is made to measure and handmade, piece after piece.
There is no universal packaging for our tables, each one is well wrapped with protecting materials in its own crate made to measure, in order to protect the table at best during the shipment.
To avoid any possible damage during the uploading and unloading of the item, every packaging is equipped with a pallet structure made to measure.

And finally, here it is your dining table, packed and ready to travel to its new house:

There are many companies that sell online but only a few can praise of making unique products, handcrafted and of great value, by themselves.
We are proud
to be one of these companies, proud of our carefully made work, and glad of all satisfactions that this work give us.

The “Bel Paese” is a real treasure, an inexhaustible source of wonders and inspirations.
Arteferretto’s artisans and master cabinetmakers, are constantly inspired by this beauty to create unique masterpieces.
We often think that craftsmanship is synonymous of classic style and old-fashioned objects, but it is not!
On the contrary, craftsmanship means high-quality furniture made in a style that is up to date and meets the requirements of shapes and functionalities adapted to our times.

All this has led our artisans to design and then to produce a collection that presents all the best features of Arteferretto production: versatility, simple and balanced design, modern details, storage space.
This is the “Riace” collection. These are the majestic bronze statues, discovered by chance on the bottom of the Ionian Sea in 1972, which inspired us to create this new collection, a perfect combination of balance of shapes, simple design and unique details. Furniture that will become the main character of every room where it is placed.

The God of marketing

11th July 2019

15th and 16th of July are great days for online purchases.
The giant of online sales has decided to push sales thanks to effective advertising campaigns even though, in reality, almost nothing is granted to customer savings.

We know it because we are seller inside Amazon.
But the real mechanism of these promotional initiatives is known only to a very small percentage of people. And we know that we will not be able to change the state of things. Indeed, most of the time, if we do not adapt ourselves we look like as we are in another world, and that we are not very respectful of our customers.But it is not like this: we are always faithful to an attitude of loyalty and transparency.
In any case, by our side, we try to play the game to not totally disappoint the expectations of most of our customers.

In these 2 days (15th and 16th of July), we would like to offer gifts to every customer who place an order: a Summer T-shirt + Furniture care kit.
Other than the discounted prices already offered.​​​​​​​

P.S.: If you write “Arteferretto” on Amazon research you’ll find our products at a higher price. What a bad news! Do you know how much Amazon charge us? Well, we know.
That’s why we recommend to buy our furniture in Ferrettohome.co.uk.

Classic turns into contemporary style

soffioni

Classic style is timeless,
Classic style is beautiful,
Classic style is
reliable,
Classic style is unique...

Yes, everything is true but what if we make it a little bit suited to current needs and tastes?
Challenge accepted.

We can start from this two example: Louis Philippe chair and Classic bookcase.
​​​​​​​

The Louis Philippe chair is characterized by a rounded backrest, upholstered seat and legs slightly shaped, solid beech wood structure for a everyday use chair.
This chair is really classic in its design but it is possible to make it more contemporary in order to place it in a modern home decor.
Here below there are 2 examples:

Louis Philippe chairs
The cherry colour chair is the traditional Louis Philippe, the most common and sold.
Let’s focus on the next two models.
In both models the legs are more contemporary style: in the first white chair the legs are slender, on the second black model the legs are more sinuous.
Thanks to these little changes of the shapes these models are suitable to furnish modern dining room because they have a charming and elegant contemporary design.
Other aspects that makes them special are the colours of the structure and the type of fabric that can be customized.
Lacquered colour and modern pattern fabric make a chair looks more contemporary style. (Take a look to our wide range of fabrics here)
Why we showed you these models? It’s easy: they meet today’s tastes while maintaining the comfort and solidity of the classic Louis Philippe beech wood chairs.
​​​​​​​
Bookcase classic vs contemporary style
Regarding these bookcases, structure is exactly the same but the difference is clear and it is shown on the doors with different design and finish.
The doors in bronze finish are unique and add a touch of elegance outside the common bookcase in wood.
Thanks to these bronze finish doors the bookcase looks contemporary and it is perfect for those who prefer a mixed style of classic-contemporary furniture.
The classicism is kept in the solid structure and in the sturdy shelves of 23 mm, which do not flex under the weight of books and folders.
Basic features for a useful bookcase.

​​​​​​​Which is your favorite version? Do you prefer the pure classic style or you like a more classic-contemporary style?
Take a look to our furniture to find out your favorite style and do not hesitate to contact us to customize your piece of furniture according to your needs and tastes.

The backrest is in uniform blue colour while the comfortable seat is in blue damask velvet. This was the perfect combination according to the furnishing of our customer.
We liked this combination and so decided to show it in our shop.
​​​​​​​

Upholstered armchair, classic style armchair, dining room armchair, wooden furniture​​​​​​​Another customer saw this armchair in blue velvet colour and decided to buy it. Before to place the order he asked us if it was possible to customize the colour of the structure (of course it is).
Black structure and two tone black velvet: rock’n’roll style! Perfect for the living room of our new customer.

How to choose the right colour for your furniture

How to choose the right colour for your furniture?
To answer this question, we can follow the experience of Monica, who is looking for a piece of furniture to furnish her house. Let’s read:

ferrettohome

I really need a new dining table…
I don’t like my square table anymore, and I would like to buy a new one, maybe with oval shape… I’m not sure…
I only know that I prefer it in wood, and with a timeless style… not too traditional nor too modern style…
Uhm, let me see online if I find a nice model…
Searching for: “Oval dining table in wood”
Wow! so many beautiful models… But not in melamine and not with these measures …
Let me see if I find an oval table of 130 cm…
Here it is! Oval, classic but not too much, a little bit bigger than what I’m looking for… Argh! It has the central leg in cherry colour but I would prefer it in white colour and 4 legs, What can I do?
Wait, there is a chat service … Let me try, maybe someone will answer me.
(If they answer me this means there is someone who cares about the customers)

Make your wardrobe ready for the new season!

With the beginning of the warm season is always nice to imagine and plan how to spend the free days.
I really like to plan some country side tours or walks in the nature. I’ve always enjoyed this time of the year with sunny weather and longer days, which is good for the mood too.

However, when there is a slight increase in temperatures, then comes the fateful moment to get the wardrobe ready for the new season.
A task that we always try to procrastinate and that is challenging especially for us women lovers of clothes.
The space in my closet seems to be never enough and every year the situation becomes more and more unmanageable.

In these cases, having lots of available space is not enough it also necessary to organize it at best.
The optimal solution to overcome the problems of space and organization could be to choose a functional modular wardrobe like this.
