Design: strong growth turnover for Talenti

A strong brand with fresh new collections. Then there’s also increased internationalization, collaborations with established designers, and the ability to communicate with and anticipate the desires of today’s consumers. These, along with many other factors, are the keys to the success of this Umbria-based Italian brand that has established itself among the global leaders in the outdoor sector. 

Talenti. The name already says it all. In fact, it takes both foresight and exactly that special ‘talent’ to transform a family-owned business, over the course of a few short years, into a genuine global brand that has taken its place among the leaders in the Italian market. Not only that, Talenti has moved beyond Europe’s borders and even ventured overseas. Following up on very positive results in 2016, the Umbrian company – manufacturer of high-quality, elegant outdoor furniture – finds itself closing the current year with a brilliant performance in terms of sales, exceeding the threshold of 10 million euros in turnover (+35% compared to 2016).

The speed of Talenti’s growth in the Italian market has been matched by its growth in the international market. The keystone to success is this company’s ability, never taken for granted, to combine elements of traditional Italian expertise with new products, anticipating the needs and desires of a changing public.
