The Piuma collection of cabinets is a delightful marriage of understated elegance-of-form and the dramatic expressiveness of wood. In contrast to the deliberate simplicity of the design is the choice of veneers – crafted with exotic, rare woods like mahogany featherband, Amara ebony, Canaletto walnut and ash, available in a number of shades. Free of handles, the finger pull is cut directly into the structure. A 45° mitered edge on the door/drawer serves as a finger grip, accentuating the clean, smooth lines of these cabinets that can be included in any setting and easily paired with all the tables, chairs, sofas and armchairs in the Flexform collection. Piuma cabinets are available in many configurations, both vertical and horizontal – credenzas with doors and drawers, hutches and sideboards, TV entertainment centers and small tables with drawers. Flawlessly finished, even on the back, these pieces also make a stunning statement when placed in the center of a room.
