We created the first larder cupboard of the so-called “Gambe Bianche” family, in 2012: the clients asked us to design a piece of furniture for a pre-existing niche. The client’s need was to have something which would have had both open and closed compartiments where to put books and objects, glasses and stoves but also some decorative objects.
We designed a structure with the typical slim legs of the 50’s cupboards, but aesthetically lighter than a normal piece of furniture of that epoque.
At the first sight our Gambe Bianche larder recalls the vintage cupboard but the reclaimed and coloured wood mix gives it a more contemporary taste.
The structure is an open-pore solid oak wood painted in white but it is possible to customize this model by choosing a different kind of wood species or choosing a total reclaimed wood look.
The structure of our larder cupboards and high sideboards are made of stable materials: plywood, marine plywood, mdf or blockboard wood, which are suitable for a lacquered finish or a resin covering.
The choice of the color is totally free: you only have to find your tone and give us the RAL code. In addition to this, clients can choose, if they prefer, a resin covering or lacquering one, or to leave the wood in its natural and beautiful shade and tone. The wood once belonged to old furniture and old doors and windows, is carefully restored and consolidated before being used. This process is totally handmade.

Sometimes the spaces where we insert the furniture are not exactly regular: often there are windows, columns, structural elements which require designing a piece of furniture capable of adapting itself to the space. So, we design the furniture around the space characteristics.
This is something which can be possible only with the handmade production of furniture. This was the case of the “ELLE” larder, which is composed of two different sideboards: a smaller and lower one and and a higher cupboard.
Thanks to our possibility to transform any model shown in our catalogue, we can adapt our classical cupboard and larder to a smaller format: for example build them with a lower height (90 or 80 cm high).
The Hidden buffet combines the aesthetics of the classical high sideboard with a funnier and contemporary taste given by the addition of one of our little cabinets called “Pupazzi”. In this case this little cabinet has four wheels which allow it to move and change its position easily.
The Gambe Bianche sideboards family has a very rich family tree, they have children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Each one is similar to its progenitor but with its own characterization. Suddenly, from the top of a slim and high pantry two lamp-antennas popped up and opened a new frontier for our handmade design.
You choose the ingredients!
Our catalogue has to be taken as a guide among our creations, ideas and kinds of solutions for decorating your home. They are a sort of family albums which show all the furniture designed and built along the years.
You can use it as an inspirational idea and move from it towards your custom-made and personalized furniture.
You can mix the ingredients as you like it: shapes, materials, dimensions, woods, reclaimed or new solid wood. This is the starting point which leads you to your customized handmade furniture!
And then… we do the rest!
First of all we create a 3D project which gives you an idea of the result. From this step we start to modify the project as you suggest. We continue until we don’t reach your ideal furniture!
