Andrea Felice is dedicated to creating art furniture, a passion that was inputted by some members of the family.Andrea Felice is a bespoke furniture maker known for mixing traditional joinery techniques with contemporary design. Andrea turns out a variety of work, from sculptural freestanding works to fitted furniture such as wardrobes and kitchens. Let’s start by meeting the Fly Cabinet.
Andrea Felice was born and raised in the village of Montegnacco in Italy. Perhaps his fate was already in the family as his Grandfather – Riccardo Felice was a baroque master carver, and his father – Enzo Felice was a formidable furniture maker and former professor of cabinet making.
Andrea says: “I originally set off in a different direction and trained as an industrial designer at ITI A Malignani Udine, one of the leading technical institutes in Europe. But, with woodworking so ingrained in me I turned back to my heritage in the early 90s, first solely carving and then furniture making. Relocating to London in 1997 I went to work for some of the best furniture makers in town, making furniture for clients from film stars to sheiks. I founded AF Designs in 2000 and was based in Camden. The business moved south of the river in 2007 to Deptford, and then to our current home in Parkhall Studios, West Dulwich. See the “About” section for more detail.”
