Devon & Devon was founded in 1989 in Florence from an entrepreneurial idea by Gianni and Paola Tanini. The couple of architects lead the company of the same name since the beginning, Gianni as AD and Paola of Art Director, and shares its managerial and creative vision: and the most refined American design of the first half of the twentieth century. Together they have contributed to the growth and international recognition of the brand. Today Devon & Devon exports to over eighty countries with a network of qualified retailers and flagship stores located in some of the most prestigious capitals in the world.
In the rigorous geometries and the sobriety of the shapes of the Devon & Devon collections, it is not difficult to see Florence, as an expression of beauty and of a centuries-old tradition of good taste. The company’s link with the Tuscan city is strong, instrinsic. It is in Florence that the ideas of Gianni and Paola Tanini take shape, it is here that inspirations, sketches, notes of travel and a life are translated into unique creations designed to furnish the most beautiful houses in the world.
In September 2011 Devon & Devon presents a new logo, represented by two opposing “D”, essential and linear, conforming to the design and philosophy of the company of essentiality and decoration, sobriety and elegance. With the new logo, Devon & Devon perfectly interprets the synthesis between classic and contemporary and, at the same time, leaves room for future stylistic evolutions.
Devon & Devon recovers originally and makes its aesthetic traditions of the past, reinterpreting them in a style that is unique, unique and unmistakable. It is the Contemporary Classic, an elegant eclectic synthesis of Art Déco, Belle Epoque, Victorian Age and Florentine Renaissance, but also of Dolce Vita, Jazz Age and exquisitely Hollywood atmospheres. The Devon & Devon bathroom is designed with a sober, sophisticated and timeless charm.
They are expert craftsmen of small production units, located in the best Italian and European districts, to give life to the Devon & Devon creations every day.
