The key goal of Cubo Rosso is to add value, convenience, and personality to living spaces through innovative and visually appealing design solutions. Their design stems from constant evolution to fit a wide range of customers; therefore, it was an easy decision for Harvey Norman to become the exclusive retailer of Cubo Rosso sofas in Malaysia.

Over the years, they have successfully created a distinct style based on strong factors such as colour, shape harmony, functionality, comfort, and innovation. Elevating the night further into a fruitful space for designers to connect and build connections, a round table discussion was held to discuss the local blooming trend of Italian furniture.

The discourse on cross-cultural trends in Italian furniture among Mark Mah, the General Manager of Furniture Harvey Norman Malaysia, Gianvitto Mazzerella, the Export Manager of Cubo Russo, alongside Tennyson Chia of SACHI and Veanne Chong of Luxe Interior, gave guests an insight into the influence of Italian furniture in Malaysian households.

Mark Mah, the General Manager of Furniture Harvey Norman Malaysia shared;

We get to leverage on global bulk buy through our close relationship with our Italian partners and presence in many countries, allowing us to pass savings to consumers through more affordable pricing for Italian made products.

The conversation highlighted why Italian furniture is becoming increasingly popular in the regional interior design scene.

Tennyson Chia from SACHI shared that;

I think Malaysians are now looking for quality furniture and craftsmanship. We don’t have the resources locally to produce these products, so we look to Italian furniture because they have all the resources. They have become the benchmark for quality furniture globally.  

To celebrate the holy month of Ramadan, local interior designers and prominent personnel from Harvey Norman and Cubo Russo were treated to a delicious feast for Buka Puasa.
