Relating to the Past
historic buildings and antique furniture

It is very difficult to reorganise a space to make it more functional while still respecting its historical integrity. Serving two masters is never easy, and usually either aesthetic appeal or practicality loose out. All of our furniture series can be effortlessly combined with antique furniture and blend seamlessly into historic buildings, as well as create an original yet focused atmosphere.

Sartoretto Verna has a lot of experience renovating and refurbishing historic buildings, not just modern ones.

The Internazionale Pharmacy - Dr Petrone - Naples (IT)

It is very difficult to reorganise a space to make it more functional while still respecting its historical integrity. Serving two masters is never easy, and usually either aesthetic appeal or practicality loose out.

Renovating historic buildings presents a whole series of new challenges (e.g. thick walls limiting the size of the retail area, vaulting and arches that make adding ceilings difficult). If these challenges are not met, then it can lead to a cramped and unprofitable retail area and hamper the ease of circulation around the shop.

The Pharmacy of Dr Giliberti - Avellino

Once these structural problems have been solved, the next big dilemma is the choice of the interior furnishings.  If you already have antique furniture, then the Ral1, Ral2, Ral3 series can be adapted to fit in with your existing furniture.

On the other hand, if you do not have any furniture and want to make the most out of the building’s historic features, then all our furniture series with their clean lines up to the job.

The Pharmacy of Dr Giachino - Vercelli

All of our furniture series can be effortlessly combined with antique furniture and blend seamlessly into historic buildings, as well as create an original yet focused atmosphere. Often the combination of our furniture’s state-of-the-art materials and the building’s historic lines, such as stone vaulting with transparent glass walls, creates a stimulating contrast which adds a unique ambience and feel to your pharmacy.

By combining old and new, classic and modern, you will achieve a perfect balance between functionality and character, between innovation and tradition.
