03 Jun ArteArredo and Mariani Affreschi: emotions of living
What do the prestigious furniture collections by ArteArredo and elegant paintings and frescos by Mariani have in common? Their uniqueness, of course! But that’s not all.
The special bond formed between the two companies was expressed at the latest Salone Internazionale del Mobile (International Furniture Fair) of Milan: two frescoes created by Mariani’s artists were placed inside the ArteArredo stand as a backdrop for a beautiful bed covered with prized fabrics and a wooden hand-carved dining table.
“We got to know each other at the various fairs,” explains Alberto, owner of Mariani Affreschi together with his brother, Alessandro and sister Laura, “and realised that our products were very similar in taste and could go well together. ArtArredo’s handcrafted furniture is requested in prestigious historical villas where they are accompanied by frescoed ceilings and walls.”
Both companies have been present in the furnishing industry for many years, and the ArteArredo products and Mariani frescoes are characterised by the handcrafted skill of expert artisans and artists who create the products on a daily basis.
In particular, ArteArredo has been producing furniture collections for over twenty years. The collections are specifically designed by skilled furniture makers who still use the age-old manual techniques according to the best Italian tradition. The young and talented interior designer Béatrice Schleret creates the collections of the Varese company. With her international experience, she produces furniture lines and furnishings with classic forms reinterpreted in a modern style. These items decorate the suites of prestigious hotels and the halls of Arabian royal palaces.
“Our reference market,” explains Béatrice Schleret, “are Arab countries. We have furnished numerous villas and residences in the East and have found that the taste and style of our furnishings go very well with the Mariani frescoes, which are also very popular with Arab customers”.
This same handcrafted passion characterises the Mariani Affreschi company of Brescia, present for over forty years in the world of interior decorating. The company’s collaboration with talented professional fresco painters, selected from some of the best art schools, has allowed the Mariani laboratory to produce beautiful works that embrace subjects of every type, from landscapes to decorative friezes, from renaissance subjects to contemporary Tiffany-style subjects, just to name a few.
This special relationship celebrates the unmistakable Italian style: the only thing that can evoke great emotions.
