In 1953 Giacomo Peressini started producing and selling tables and chairs in a small town in Northern Italy called Udine. Today Udine is famous for all of the furniture manufacturers and (surprise) its wonderful wine. Peressini, the company, has grown over the years and is now run by Giacomo’s children, Michele and Michael Peressini. Their goal has been to blend the local tradition of their father with the modern globalization of their generation. They have been very successful achieving this!
Sourcing designers from all over the world and listening to their customer’s needs means that Peressini has come up with products that are elegant, modern and well received by the marketplace. Their focus continues to be on tables and chairs, and they do this very well. Peressini’s chairs are so versatile and can be designed and made exactly how you want it. Peressini advertises “Chairs Your Way, and this is exactly what you get. All chair frames or shells can be mounted on different bases: four-leg base, a star base, a swivel, a sled base and on and on. This gives you, the customer, the ability to have a “one-of-a-kind” chair at the same price as one from an assembly line. Check out Sklar’s selection of chairs from Peressini, including the Doris or the Glamour.
Peressini’s table line is similar in that all of the options available are extension tables, with wonderful Italian mechanisms that make changing a table that seats 4 to a table for 8 in a simple twist of the wrist. The Myles Dining Table starts as a standard 48″ round table that can be extended up to a 75″ table that easily sits 6 people.
As always, we at Sklar strive to partner with small family businesses in Italy where we have an opportunity to build relationships—not just furniture.
