From stalwarts in the design world to up-and-coming names, Lema works with the best talents to present design concepts that are both elegant and highly functional.
Backed by 40 years of experience in the furniture industry in Italy, Lema’s offerings today cover every aspect of living. The modular furniture systems are made of rich textured woods and beautifully burnished metals, and upholstered in plush velvets, smooth leathers and luxe fabrics. All these work together to present a light and airy aesthetic that is profoundly Mediterranean in design and spirit, reinforcing the true value of laidback tranquility.
Lema’s newest collection includes many standout pieces. Memo by Piero Lissoni is a large table that is suited for both the dining and conference room. Then there is Winston by Christophe Pillet. The bar cabinet is inspired by traditional Chinese furniture and comes with a mirrored bottom, bottle holders made of leather and bronzed metal neatly concealed in the casing, and a retractable surface that can be used to make cocktails.
