“Years ago, while in college, I attended a furniture “design” course. It was more of a carpentry class and zero design (I spent the whole semester making a little wooden table). Larosa’s workshop was perfect! 100% design thinking and valuable tips on the furniture design industry! The only thing I had to “build” in Antonio’s workshop was my stunning portfolio. ”

“Antonio is very knowledgeable about the furniture industry and passionate about teaching furniture design. He is a real design Guru! Great workshop, he demands a lot of work …but now my furniture portfolio is simply amazing!”
