Carpanelli is a family-run business whose roots lie in artistic woodworking and high-level cabinetmaking.  A long tradition of craftsmanship: the company has been “Author Workshop” since 1919, when it was founded by Giuseppe Carpanelli, a well-known and prestigious cabinetmaker. His sons Luigi and Leopoldo and his daughter Clementina in the second generation have enhanced what done by their father, and now Carpanelli is one of the most appreciated and recognized companies in the Classic Italian furniture panorama.

The third generation with Giuseppe, Angelo and Daniele has taken the baton of a splendid historical reality by enhancing the always appreciated “added values” of Carpanelli Style, by trying to interpret the today’s demanding challenges in the furnishing world, revolutionized by the changes of the lifestyles imposed by the digital revolution.

100-Year Carpanelli Award celebrates a century of history, in which every generation has interpreted the world of furniture with passion and creativity standing out for uniqueness of style and quality of a “Beautiful and Well Done” product: the proposed theme “Italian Journey” is an exciting challenge full of opportunities for those who are careful to seize them.
