Founded in Monte-Carlo, Garbarino, designer and producer of high-end furniture, combines a unique, creative approach to the Italian savoir-faire. The pieces are designed in the spirit of haute-couture’. Composed of a wide-range of décor including
dressers, chairs, sofas, tables and rugs, all the collections are distinguished by their unconventional and eclectic style. Each creation arises from a careful reflection of the material, its properties and character. The brand is based on the independent but complementary themes that are the four elements (earth, fire, wind and air) in the selection and use of new material. The lines are both refined and minimalist, where design and comfort exist in harmony. Imprinted with the codes of luxury pertinent to the mythical French & Italian Riviera (from Saint Tropez to Portofino), each Garbarino creation brings timeless elegance to interiors.
With each creation made in Italy, Garbarino intends to enhance every material without spoiling it, in keeping with the tradition. Materials such as ebony, walnut, oak, cork, marbles, fabrics and leather are all meticulously selected for their nobility and originality. The tailoring of each piece of furniture is done so in harmony with the lines, the choice of material and the colours that compose it. Thus designed, each piece can be fully customised to meet the requirements of every client.
“ My work feeds on my passion for Asia and on an unconditional love for art, especially the Renaissance period. Whenever I approach a new design, I refer to the intrinsic values of the brand to effectuate surprise and wonder.’’ – Adriano Gabarino
Adriano Garbarino, founder of the brand, is passionate about art and design. Born close to Portofino in Italy, he graduated top of his class from the University of Fine Arts in Florence in 1968 after training as a sculptor. In 2012, he launched his first furniture collection, Garbarino, with the goal of creating timeless pieces which are free from trends. Today, his creations -both contemporary and eclectic – are recognised internationally (China, Russia, USA, Middle East).
