A Family Tradition
Giorgio Cattelan was born in Thiene, last of a family of 7 brothers, son of a well known carpenter of this small town situated in a nice countryside, north of Vicenza, in the east-northern part of Italy. The smell of the wood, the art of creating a piece of furniture was part of the family heritage, where 5 out of 7 brothers continued, in different ways, the family tradition in the furniture field.
Cattelan Italia was established in 1979 from an idea of Giorgio and Silvia Cattelan, manufacturing initially “marble” elements, such as tables and coffee tables, focusing the business towards the export market. Immediately the firm achieved very ambitious results throughout USA, Europe and the Far East.
Today, the Company finds a natural outburst of turnover, positioning itself among one of the biggest Italian firms in the furnishing sector. Cattelan Italia is proud to be displayed in more than 2500 of the most qualified showrooms in 104 countries around the world.
