TrendsA well conceived, thought out and correctly designed idea is capable of moving mountains. Behind every good idea there is always a thinking mind that creates, designs and manufactures a product until it becomes a reality. Undoubtedly, furniture designers compose elegant, well-thought-out and well-designed products that reflect our attitude.
At Latorre, the designers we work with are like our family: they leave part of their essence in our firm and, for this reason, we want you to meet the furniture designers with whom we have created our collections.
Furniture designersTo create a unique piece of furniture in harmony are furniture designers, those professionals who design and create different types of furniture and who are sometimes supported by other brands. Each of their pieces has a different purpose, but should always be functional as well as practical, while still being attractive to the eye of the customer.
Design is, for many design professionals, a fundamental part of their lives. Without it, many homes, spaces or places would not be as attractive and distinguishable. Designers are in charge of composing new lines of high-end, high design products, which they create themselves or are also guided by the indications of their clients.
