About Bellini Modern Living

As a wholesaler and distributor of modern contemporary furniture, Bellini Modern Living got its start in 2002 in Toronto, Ontario. By 2007, they had expanded into the US.

Now, Bellini Modern has the largest inventory of Italian furnishings in North America.

President and CEO of Bellini Modern, Hossein Azimi, has always been passionate about the style of European furniture and the craftsmanship that goes into every piece. Bellini Modern’s vision was to create a furniture line that was more accessible to a broad North American market.

Bellini Modern’s designers and manufacturers are working on new collections and designs to create exciting looks everyday. Bellini Modern carries the expectation of providing its customers with innovative furniture of the highest quality.

When you’re getting something from Bellini, you’re getting a unique, diverse, and design-driven piece that will add a punch of personality to any room in your home.

What sets Bellini Modern Living apart from other furniture companies?

Bellini Modern focuses on original pieces that are sure to bring a modern contemporary, and compelling component to your space. The value from these unique products is reflected in the quality workmanship and extensive attention to detail in every piece.

One of our Design Guides, Kirsti, points out that contemporary furniture, in general… well, there’s a lot of poorly made stuff out there. An item can look interesting by incorporating modern features, but that doesn’t mean it's well-made. However, with Bellini Modern, rest assured that these pieces are well-made and built to last. 

Although Bellini Modern Living isn’t a particularly customizable brand, they do offer various sizes on occasional tables, not commonly seen with other companies. If you see a small occasional table that you like, there’s a good chance that it comes in a lower height or larger size.

The value you’re getting with Bellini Modern Living is incomparable. Furniture and accessories aren’t cheap by any means, but for what you’re getting (think: quality, artistry, originality), Bellini Modern keeps everything well within a reasonable price point.

Who is Bellini Modern Living a good fit for?

If you’re into more of a modern or contemporary design style, Bellini Modern is absolutely worth exploring, especially if you’re particularly interested in a European aesthetic.

Bellini Modern Living takes pride in developing looks that are diverse and fashion-forward. If you’d like to spice up the look of your space with a few compelling accessories, they certainly have the products for you to do just that.

Modern designs are inherently more compact and smaller in scale. So, if you’re looking to furnish a tight space with minimal – but interesting – accents, Bellini Modern can offer you a lot of appropriate options.

Who is Bellini Modern Living not a good fit for?

If you’ve determined that your preferred design style is more traditional, Bellini Modern Living is probably not going to be your cup of tea. It’s right in their name – Bellini Modern Living! A majority, if not all, of their products, fall into the modern and contemporary categories. 

You can find products within Bellini Modern Living that offer different sizes and finishes, but customization isn’t exactly what this company is known for - if that’s what you’re looking for. 

Designers have specially curated designs using the highest quality materials to make these spectacular, one-of-a-kind pieces. Many of Bellini Modern’s products are sold as shown because there isn’t much need to change things. 

Should I talk to a designer before making a decision?

Because Bellini Modern Living does offer some eye-catching and striking looks, you may be wondering how to incorporate these pieces into your home. Should you consult with a designer before buying new furniture then? 

Not necessarily, but if you’d like some assurance before you buy, that’s absolutely what our Design Guides are here for!
