Salbini Experience Tom Landry II

Designer Tom Landry II was our guest in Italy twice in September and December 2021, to live the “Salbini Experience”, our exclusive journey into the world of Italian design.

The welcome

He flew from America to Italy. In Milan he was welcomed by our Managers Filippo and Francesco, with whom he spent a few weeks in northern Italy, where he had the opportunity to touch and feel the high quality of the products, visiting the headquarters, the production plants and the showrooms of the best Italian brands.

The best Italian companies open their doors

To best meet the needs of Tom, who is carrying out some important projects with us in North America, we have selected some of the best Italian brands of furniture, lighting, carpets, bathroom and outdoor products.

With him we met many business managers, who were able to describe and show him the characteristics and manufacture of the products.

Tom experienced first hand the products of the following brands:

What an exciting experience for a designer!

Not only the products impressed Tom, but also the friendliness received during the weeks in Italy.

“I was fascinated by the quality of the materials and greatly appreciated the hospitality of the Italians.”

Tom Landry II

After his return to America, Tom wrote us what he thinks of the Salbini Experience:

“I had the extraordinary opportunity to be personally escorted to countless Italian luxury showrooms and factories throughout Italy by Salbini. 

It was the highlight of my 25 year career! 

The personalized journey was complemented by Filippo’s breadth of industry knowledge and his intense pride of his native land and its culture- providing for an all around exceptional experience.

At each venue, we were greeted by the respective staff – sometimes the owner/founder – for a personal tour of the manufacturer’s premises that included a verbal history and evolution of the brand. 

I was able to firsthand experience the design ethos of the brand, the employed ergonomics of the construction and the intricate details of the upholstery and millwork not commonly found on the web. In some locations, we were given a behind the scenes tour of how each iconic piece is handcrafted by Italian artisans, how the leather is processed & cut and the overall personal care taken to the craft of each piece. 

Unlike the annual Salone de Mobile in Milan, during my showroom and factory visits with Salbini, I was able to make fabric selections, plan future projects and spend as much time as I required experiencing each manufacturer showroom. 

Filippo encouraged me to spend as much time as I needed to engage each brand carefully in order to provide my clientele with first hand knowledge of the comfort, construction, craft and aesthetic of the brands I requested to experience.

As the premier consolidator of European luxury furniture, finishes and building materials, Salbini has the ability to bring Europe to your doorstep, quite literally! There’s no longer a need to wonder how to get something from Europe to North America for a client. Salbini handles the entire process- flawlessly. The Salbini Experience is on a level of its own.”

From north to south Italy to meet the team

Tom also had the opportunity to spend time with the other members of our Italian team, to better plan the work for ongoing projects in North America and also to spend some relaxing moments with the Salbini family.


With Salbini Experience we will open the doors of the best Italian companies to you.
