Porada Giotto Coffee Table

Picture 10

Picture 11

Porada was established in 1968 by Luigi Allievi with the help of his 4  sons in order to expand the production of chairs, started in 1948, to other branches of home furnishing.

This Giotto Coffee table is my personal favourite from their current collection and illustrates perfectly the result when combining modern technological processes with the traditional artisan style of the area.

See Porada for further details.
