We continue our journey to discover the furniture showrooms that are part of Milano Good Design, the corporate network that brings together the most exclusive design stores in the Milan area.
Today we have the pleasure of talking with Matteo Pellegrinelli, who together with his brother Giovanni represents the third generation of the founding family of the company Pellegrinelli Arreda with shops in Milan and Cesate.
When was the company established?
Pellegrinelli Arreda was founded in 1958 by my grandparents, who opened a small upholstery workshop where sofas and mattresses were produced and rebuilt. Subsequently, following numerous requests, they began to sell children’s items and a few items of furniture that a few years later became our strength. In 1986 my father and uncle decided to build a new showroom of 2000 square meters. It is still the company’s headquarters today. In 2010 the showroom was entirely renovated by my brother and me to differentiate the range of products and increase the services offered. In 2019 we opened a new showroom in Milan, a city that is a symbol of design in Italy and around the world.
How is your furnishing offer composed today?
Our furniture offer is composed of a wide range of products belonging to the best design brands “Made in Italy”. Visiting our showrooms, the customer can orient himself on the product that reflects his taste and his budget.
According to your experience and your knowledge, how has the style of the houses, the division of the spaces, the taste of the customers changed in the last 10-20 years?
The style of houses in the last 20 years has changed radically; today, the taste of customers is mainly oriented towards essential lines and design. Homes are getting smaller and smaller, and the customer relies on us to find the best solution to take advantage of every little space of its environment.
How has your work as a retailer and interior designer changed over time?
Today our work has changed because the customer does not rely on us to buy the single element, but asks us to design its space both in terms of furniture and in terms of complement and decoration.
What do you think are your strengths? What do your customers appreciate the most?
Our strength is service. The customer is accompanied in all phases of the realization of his environment. We support him in all his choices and try to remain his point of reference for any future request.
What is Milano Good Design for you? What are its elements of innovation?
Milano Good Design is the union of the leading furniture stores, selected by Federmobili Milano based on the services offered, the brands covered and the professionalism of the store. This partnership allows us to showcase ourselves both in Italy and abroad as a great example of Milanese design.
