1. Cementino Dining Table

The Cementino Dining Table is a beautiful arrangement of wood that features a unique element. Taking inspiration from geometric floor tiling, hexagonal cement tiles are inlayed into the top of the table. Available in two versions, the black finish pulls from classic monochromatic tile patterns to create an inspiring design.

Light and airy, Tonelli’s Kart Trolley expresses a different approach to the classic serving cart. Constructed of glass, the cart boasts voluptuous curves and an elegant silhouette. A contrast of frosted and clear glass gives you glimpses of what’s inside to tempt and tantalize just as much as the design.
