Marylu Stevens Portrait

Our Story

The artistry is extraordinary and the craftsmanship is unparalleled. For more than 25 years, PATINA® has been creating exquisitely crafted furniture, meticulously hand-finished and hand-painted in the Old World tradition. Each beautifully detailed piece is the result of many hours of painstaking labor, resulting in signature, one-of-a-kind works of art that define the home and will be cherished for generations.

With her knowledge of Italian art, history and culture, President and CEO Marylu Stevens enhances her hand-painted furniture collection through extensive study and travel. Collaborating with artisans and craftsmen in Northern Italy, she ensures the unique and enduring romance of 18th century furniture is carefully re-created.

Our Italian Artisans

The graceful lines and richly aged finish of each piece in our exquisite collection is fashioned by a team of exceptionally talented artisans working in ateliers in small towns across northern Italy. Having apprenticed to master craftsmen, they are skilled in applying the techniques and materials used by 18th century artisans to create and decorate finely detailed wood furniture.
