Are you planning to renew your living room but you can’t find the right piece of furniture?
Are you looking for a good piece of furniture to place in that corner of the kitchen?
Do you need more space in your TV corner but couldn’t find a space saving cabinet?

You certainly need a custom-made piece of furniture!

Don’t be afraid of “custom-made” words.

We know that the “bespoke product” can inspire fear and a bit of anxiety because you don’t really want to start endless projects; but this is not always the case.
Many customers, not finding the exact measurements of the desired furniture and asked us for a customized production. Yes we can! We are always happy to help them.
It is interesting for us to understand the customer’s needs, customs and available spaces in order to suggest the best solution to satisfy his needs.

​​​​​​​
How we work on custom-made products?
First of all we consult with the customer and we focus the better solution that meets his needs.
Then we discuss the project with the production department in order to understand the feasibility, lead time and costs.
As soon as we have the answer by the production department (1 or 2 days) we send to the customer a detailed quote to evaluate.

The price?
The price is assessed from time to time based on the project and the changes requested.
A custom-made piece of furniture has its own processes, and it has to be made outside our standard production, it must be carefully studied, and then created with the appropriate attention.
That’s why the price of a custom-made piece of furniture is higher than the one of a standard piece of furniture, but since we are the manufacturer, the price is always calculated on factory prices and that’s why it is still low.

Do not be afraid to send us requests for custom-made furniture, we will evaluate them and confirm whether or not they are feasible.
Yes, ‘cause it can happen that some projects are not feasible in our factory.

If we evaluated the project and understood that we would not be able to give a satisfactory product to the customer, we inform the customer that we can’t accept the project.

We always want to give you a piece of furniture that lives up to your requests so if for some reasons like: not suitable machinery, project outside of our field, too expensive costs of productions etc. is not possible to perfectly satisfy your need, we prefer to turn it down and be honest with you from the beginning.

How much time is needed for a custom furniture?
About 18-20 working days from the payment of the order.
We are used to keep the customer updated about the order processing and we contact the customer before shipping the goods in order to plan the delivery.
Customer service is always available for any information. You can contact us by e-mail, phone or Whatsapp and we will be happy to attend you.

 

“Custom-made furniture” are words that shouldn’t scare you
because here at Arteferretto we will support your project and satisfy all your needs!

Our treasure chest

History, Art, Culture, Good Food, Beautiful views, Traditions…
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.

cattura1

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.

Discover some models here below …

Chest of 4 drawers which, despite its small size, will bring great functionality and wide storage space.

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.

 

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)

[CHAT]
Io: Good morning, I saw this table in Louis Philippe style. Is it possible to buy it in Ivory colour?
S: Good morning. yes it is! Every table is customizable in colour. Here is the page of colours with all details: www.ferrettohome.co.uk/colours/ 
(OMG! They have already answered my query! Not bad…)
Io: Thank you, actually I didn’t saw it but I definally will. I have another question: is it possible to have the table in a smaller size and with 4 legs?
S: Which size do you need?
Io: Almost 130/140 cm, extendable table please.
S: Ok, so take a look to the Empire table, it has 4 legs: https://www.ferrettohome.co.uk/product/fv-39b-extendable-oval-table-for-dining-room-130-210/
(Wow! I haven’t seen it before… I like the style, I like the legs, but I’m not sure about the colour)
Io: Thank you so much! I’m not sure about the colour. I prefer it in white colour, but also the kitchen is white, have you any suggestion?
S: Well, you could choose the white with patina colour, but if you still have doubts, I advice you to buy the samples of colours and then if you place the order, you’ll be refunded of the cost of the samples bought.
(Perfect! I think is a great idea buying the samples to check the colour and see if it matches with my kitchen)
Io: It’s what I was looking for, where can I buy the samples? When will I receive them?
S: Here is the link to buy the samples: https://www.ferrettohome.co.uk/product/zel-lacquered-colour-samples/  we dispatch them with Ups courier and you’ll receive the packaging in a couple of days. You’ll receive an email with the day of delivery.

Io: Thank you so much for all information!
[I LEFT THE CHAT]

Now I buy the samples, its a cheap service and even gratis if you think that they’ll refund you with a discount coupon to use placing the order.
[AFTER A WHILE]

And so, after a second chat with the customer service to ask more about the production time and the shipping method, Monica buys the Empire table in ivory colour.

Arteferretto anniversary

25aprile-1

Here we are again, ready to celebrate our 39° birthday.
25th of April is a date very important to us because was the day of our beginning.

 

frescosole

 

 

25th of April 1980, was a sunny but cool day.

The electricity line had been switched on the day before, so we moved out the Fiat 128 from the garage and for the first time the noisy air compressor started is work.

My brother, who had worked for a few years in a carpentry, started giving instructions explaining the various stages of the work to be done.

We started making products for others companies, bigger than us. Dreaming to become like them one day.

 

 

saggezza

The name of our company is the match between “Arte” which means art and the last name of our family ” Ferretto” . Arteferretto is a tribute to our family and to the way we desire to produce our products. Challenging but very stimulating.

Art… what is Art? We could say Art is a painting, a sculpture, music… and what about work? Isn’t art too? We think it is, if made with experience, ability, commitment, meticulousness, passion.

I still remember the first commissioned work. We put such attention to detail because we perfectly knew that our work would have been valuate by who gave us that work and from who our future would have depends on.

The first commandment

Since those early works it was necessary to set rules and a quality standard. What was born then as a fundamental rule, and still is in everyday work is: Every piece of furniture, every single piece it must be taken care of with the utmost care, as if the product coming out of it should be placed in our home.

 

Occasionally it happens that some customers take us to repair a piece of furniture bought somewhere and from a quick evaluation we can deduce a very low price and an even lower quality. It is an opportunity to reaffirm the validity of our principles with all the staff. “Would you put something like that in your house?” And just a half smile or a look is enough to get an unspoken answer.

logo

“Arteferretto” furniture are products that ourselves would place in our home. And in 39 years we have never changed this thought. It is a simple, elementary rule, but it gives the idea of our company policy.

Anyone who knows us knows that we make Art works, we all work with passion, to satisfy our customers and our customers rewards us coming back to buy and recommending us to friends and relatives. And for us this represents the best gratification.
