The wood carving and gilding activity conducted by Ernesto Spini is a keystone in the history of Florentine craftsmanship. In the Thirties Ernesto opened his own wood carving shop in via del Campuccio, located in San Frediano, the artisans quarter of Florence. He started hand carving doors, furniture and in particular wood frames.
Ernesto’s son Sergio joined the atelier bringing significant stylistic innovations, designs and finishes.
Our unique finishes, like the aged and oxidized real silver, the antique gold with our “clay patina” or the aged copper leaf made SPINI famous worldwide.
Today Barbara and Luca SPINI are still using the same traditional skills to manufacture our exclusive, hand made mirror frames, tables, headboards and cabinets.
The Modern Collection was introduced by Barbara and Luca in the Eighties as well as our customization service.
