Alivar was founded in 1984 in Firenze, Tuscany. We are a dynamic company, ever aware of evolving technology and advances in architecture and design. We produce contemporary furniture for every space, each one with a distinctive style but consistent on the same time.
An Alivar ambience has a refined style, it’s a work in progress, anchored not to single pieces but to an overarching solution. We work with a variety of materials, endeavouring to showcase the intrinsic qualities of each, and set ourselves high standards for even the minutest of details. Our pieces are contemporary but are more than just fashion; they are a special way of interpreting interiors.
We offer two different collections: Home Project and Brilliant Lifestyle for contemporary living that is faithful to the past while looking ahead to the future.
