About Dante Stivanello

I started out as an apprentice carpenter with a desire to build things with my hands from scratch. I knew that whatever I was to build it had to look good, be strong and durable and something I was proud to put my name on. Over the years since I have come to appreciate and study in detail the beauty of simple, well made objects, whether it is a house, a concrete wall or a dining table, good design and good building techniques will always stand the test of time.

Having had considerable exposure to all levels of construction, I became interested in furniture designing and making after building a dining table for a client at the end of a renovation I had just completed. The satisfaction of knowing the table was built to last and suited the clients need perfectly, resonated with me and ultimately inspired me to create Stivanello Bespoke.
