The fifth Natuzzi Italia store opened in South Florida in the Miami Design District on February 12, at 3818 N. Miami Ave. amid grand opening festivities. The new franchise joins stores in Aventura, Ft. Lauderdale, Boca Raton and Orlando with two other stores in the development phase in Pinecrest and Naples.
"Natuzzi Italia is the most prestigious name in Italian-made furniture with an unmatched contemporary design aesthetic that is synonymous with one of the world’s most recognizable furniture brands,” says Joe Mirable, franchise owner. “The 6,500-sq.-ft. store is presented as a Total Living collection of the finest leather and upholstered sofas and chairs, beautiful wooden furniture for the living room and bedroom, and accent lamps, accessories and rugs, which are all made in Italy by the world’s most talented craftsmen.”
The new store features 19 vignettes with Natuzzi Italia furnishings for every room of the home. Furniture designs range from being breathtakingly modern to contemporary, high-end Italian design rooted in classic design concepts that make an artful impact in any interior. Many collections can be described as a combination of modern art and architecture, always designed with Italian innovation, brilliant function, a masterful mix of materials and a choice of configurations, beautiful finishes, premium leathers and cutting edge fabrics.
Also being introduced is the collection of Natuzzi Re-Vive, the world’s first performance recliners and coordinating ottomans engineered to adjust and react, intuitively and fluidly to the body’s movements front-to-back and side-to-side unlike any other chair in existence. Interpreted in seven styles, each is available in two sizes, a choice of premium-quality Italian leathers or fashionable fabrics with colors, textures and sheens designed for today’s lifestyles.
“Natuzzi Italia is a total harmony of design and function to create balance throughout the home, from our wooden case goods to seating, home entertainment and dining, bedroom and occasional pieces, accessories and lighting in the Italian style of harmonious living,” Teplitz says.
“We search for partners throughout the country and world that represent these hallmarks of Natuzzi innovation and design. We are pleased with the success of the existing Natuzzi Italia stores in Florida and look forward to the opening of several others in the near and distant future.”
