Robi Malerba and his family have worked with Cantoni founder (and chief energizing officer) Michael Wilkov for years. They have conceived and crafted this luxury line to add to the others they produce at their Italian factory, including Dress Code, Solitaire, One & Only, and more. Not only is the Malerba family a top vendor for us, but they create furnishings for the likes of Harrod's as well as a host of other internationally-renowned luxury retailers.
The stunning 5th Avenue Collection was born from a small piece of clay that the designer for Malerba was modeling, not knowing at all what it would become. Malerba was trying to create a piece with classical proportions that would be right for modern homes. Out of the small piece of clay came 5th Avenue. Malerba's artistry in the use of high-gloss American walnut veneers and gleaming stainless steel accents that really play off the dark wood beautifully, have made the 5th Avenue one of our best selling collections.
