Occupation Furniture Designer & Maker
Location London, London, United Kingdom
Introduction I was born and raised in the village of Montegnacco 10 miles from the beautiful city of Udine, Fruili Italy. Udine , borders one of the most important furniture making areas of Italy - ‘triangolo della sedia’ (triangle of the chair). My Grandfther - Riccardo Felice was a baroque master carver, and my father - Enzo Felice a formidable furniture maker and former professor of cabinet making. I originally set off in a different direction and trained as an industrial designer at ITI A Malignani Udine, one of the leading technical institutes in Europe. But, with woodworking so ingrained in me I turned back to my heritage in the early 90s, first solely carving and then furniture making. Relocating to London in 1997 I went to work for some of the best furniture makers in town, making furniture for clients from film stars to sheiks. I founded AF Designs in 2000 and was based in Camden. The business moved south of the river in 2007 to Deptford, and then to our current home in Parkhall Studios, West Dulwich. See the "About" section for more detail.
Interests Beyond creating beautiful furniture (design and making) and carving. Andrea is also often found at the Ace Café worshiping motorcycles. And spends much of his free creative energy working on his latest BMW ‘Special’.
