Philosophy

Confalonieri was founded in 1947 in Milan, as a company specialized in the production of printing inks.
Along the '60s the focus of the production changes to the decorative papers for laminates and for the rising market of finished panels.
A leading player from the early beginning of the decorative laminate industry, Confalonieri aims to present itself as a highly proactive partner, ever committed to monitor and interpret the new stylistic trends.
Taken over by the year 2003, the company is now a part of the Valentini Group, a 100% Italian industrial frame, whose five companies cover the whole furniture chain.
Confalonieri devotes all its creative and technological resources to the continuous updating of its collection of designs and products. Today an odd 900 sets of printing cylinders are available, an heritage whose specific know-how and originality meet perfectly with the most contemporary trends.
Flows of cultural and visual influences merge within Confalonieri products to capture the components of each new style and transform them into a unique interpretation and real proposals. The variety of the range, the quality of the products and the management efficiency make of Confalonieri an ideal partner to work with for the major companies in this line of business. Long-term partnerships with some of the leading players in the design and furnishing environment emphasize the fondness of Confalonieri for a truly creative dialogue as a mean of evolution and growth, a way to enrich everybody’s life through the encounter of different experiences and needs.
