Story For more than 30 years Lapalma has been manufacturing furniture for the modern home and for the contract, following a thread, rooted in the modern design, that links with clear proportions all the components of the project and aims at getting a universal product, that will last forever. Rational aesthetics, through the use of natural materials like wood from controlled plantation , leather, metal, wicker and glass, finds out an order in the variety of elements and functions. It is then possible to get a contact with things of everyday life, to live each moment and situation enjoying also small details, apparently meaningless, surrounded by objects that create a peaceful atmosphere. A style that creates a refined and functional room. All the products derive from a continual research on materials and mechanisms: these are engineered and developed in the plant of Cadoneghe, near Padova.
