Our factory is close to the city of Udine, situated in the renowned Italian Chair District, an industrial area where businesses have manufactured chairs since the end of 1800. Italsed’s Italian offices are in the centre of Friuli Venezia Giulia, a region recently mentioned by Lonely Planet among the Best in Travel places for 2016.

The Friuli Venezia Giulia region of Italy is a renowned area for winemaking and forms the Tre Venezie wine region which ranks with Tuscany and Piedmont as Italy’s world class wine regions.

Being in the very Northeastern border of Italy, history has changed the area many times and created an intriguing mixture of languages, cultures and many local cuisines. This tiny area spans a few kilometres from the Alps to the sea cliffs and coast. For wine lovers and gourmet travelers, Friuli offers beautiful vineyard scenery, lovely historic towns and villages, and seriously stylish wines. The charm of the area is that it’s off the beaten track from the big tourist towns which allows for a truly Italian experience…
