Our style guide

We’re drawn to 20th century art and architecture. We work across styles and design movements, but come back to the enduring clarity of mid-century modernism for inspiration. With each new collection, the details may change, but our aesthetic always remains clean and uncluttered.

Skill in the making

We believe quality starts with structure. That’s why we work with a cabinet-making specialist to perfect our frames, joinery and wood details. Every frame carries a 10-year warranty. Our people are trained by expert carpenters, leather specialists and upholsterers. It’s how we bring artisanal techniques to scale.

An eye for detail

It’s the details that make a piece of furniture stand out on the shop floor or an online store. We specialise in modernist hardware, joinery, wood veneers, woven cane, and wickers. Whether plating metals, creating bespoke finishes or crafting exposed wood frames, we’re able to bring time-honoured techniques to the mass markets. While known for our hand-crafted Italian leathers, we’ve also become a source of quality wovens and cotton velvets. In every material we use, the priority is texture, tactility and visual value.

Headboards

Our headboard collection is styled on the quintessential Carezza looks of our living room upholstery. Mid-century detailing is evident in the metal hardware, wood and tufted leather and fabric upholstery. We also offer a range of ottomans, benches and small occasional bedroom chairs to complete the look. Buyers are able to mix sofas and headboards in containers, with low MOQs.

Modern materials

Natural Italian leather

Our signature leathers are soft and broken-in. You can see the natural variations in the hide and grain. We finish our leather with oils and waxes, not paints and polymers. By keeping our production in Italy, we ensure a high standard and a hand-touched process. Artisans with years of experience tan the leather and adjust each shade according to variations in the hides. Natural materials require skill to master, and our high-capacity team ensures that every batch is consistently beautiful.

Textural fabrics

As the online market for furniture has grown, Carezza’s fabrics have helped our clients create ready-to-ship collections that not only wear well, but photograph beautifully. Our dense and durable cotton velvets come in a rich spectrum of colours, each in a soft, matte pile. Cotton weaves include tweeds, twills and basketweaves. We pride ourselves on being a source and resource for high-quality, best-value fabrics.

Want to collaborate? There are three ways to work with us

01. Carezza collection

Twice a year, we launch a new Carezza Collection. This broad-ranging resource allows buyers to shop a range of looks off-the-shelf and customise pieces for their own markets. Showcased in the tranquil surroundings of The Glasshouse, our purpose-built showroom and workplace in Vietnam, buyers can bring their own collections to life. We create and maintain exclusive collections for buyers, based on geographic territories.

02. Design workshops

We frequently host customers at our Hong Kong head office for range planning workshops with the design studio team. Here we talk strategy, direction, assortments, and materials. We’re experienced in submitting products in response to seasonal brand concepts, and equally confident to develop designs from sketches and references. You choose how you want to work with us.

03. Customer designs (ODM)

We work directly with your company’s in-house designers and sourcing teams to implement design briefs. We’re experienced in corporate processes and compliance, and we have an in-house testing laboratory, as well as skilled quality control staff experienced in product engineering, packaging and labelling. Due to our mid-century expertise, we’re often the favoured choice for nuanced and demanding ODM briefs.
