Effeti History

Effeti History


Effeti kitchens are born in a land full of culture, creativity and dreams to be realized

Effeti was born long time ago: it was 1963 when Armido Ristori founded the Falegnameria Toscana, a small artisan company specialized in making furniture for home and kitchen.

Even today, more than fifty years since then, we continue to be guided by the same passion, professionalism and commitment that aim without hesitation at qualitative excellence: in fact, Effeti modern kitchens contain all the experience of the Italian master carpenters of the past, the love for details, the desire for constant improvement, the passion to follow each creation from its conception to the installation in your home.

Ours is a story still in progress and you are part of it.
