Riva 1920

The Riva 1920 range blurs the line between art and functional furniture.

Passionate about building furniture that defies time and respects nature, Riva 1920 is an Italian brand culminated by numerous generations of the Riva family. With the input of selected design partners, the company is committed to creating flawless furnishings that can equally be described as works of art. The expert craftsmanship that has been passed down, along with a focus on quality and product evolution, has resulted in a brand that exudes contemporary creativity and is celebrated internationally.

Reflecting the profoundly fashionable land they hail from, each of the distinguished designs promises to make an impressive interior statement. With pieces suitable for every room in the house, the range radiates the solid, warm and timeless attributes of fine wood. Sourcing only the best timber available is paramount for the brand who procure the rare and valuable Millenium Kauri from our very own shores.

Whether you’re looking for an awe-inspiring feature for which their collection abounds, or something more subtle to complement an existing interior semblance, the extensive range – each piece a celebrated artistic feat in its own right – has something to offer. The range’s more playful side includes unique bench and stool collections that are inspired by everyday objects and presented in a modern manner. These innovative accoutrements come in the form of comfortable, functional stools resembling anything from a champagne cork to a playing dice, or the eye-catching benches in an array of styles from a vintage ruler to a clothes peg.
