What our clients say

Our dining table tends to be one of the most important parts of our house – it’s where our family and friends come together to eat, talk and share. We wanted to find a new table that was both beautiful and capable of being used every day by our growing family and our friends. After looking extensively for the right table we were recommended Stivanello Bespoke by a friend. It was clear from our first conversation that Dante understood what was important to us and shared our commitment to quality, longevity and function.

While we have worked extensively with designers, builders and engineers in the past this was our first experience commissioning custom furniture. Dante was very open through the design and build process, making sure we were involved in each step of the process as much as we wanted to be. Through this approach we were able to see Dante’s professionalism, perfectionism and passion for natural, sustainable materials. He gave us a lot of confidence that we had made the right choice in working with him.

In the end Stivanello Bespoke built and delivered a beautiful dining table that exceeded our expectations and that nicely complements the way we live our life. We have decided to work with Dante on several more pieces of furniture which have been delivered with the same professionalism and quality. We look forward to commissioning more work with Dante in the future.

What a privilege it was to collaborate with Dante and create two truly unique pieces for our home.
We commissioned a long low credenza as well as a tall storage cabinet for our living area, and we couldn’t be happier with results.

From the rich Tasmanian Blackwood finish, to the soft leather door pulls, the quality and craftsmanship is incredible. We now have two very special pieces that we will love for a lifetime.

The whole process was seamless and professional, with Dante keeping us up to date with along the way. We were even able to visit the workshop to see the work in progress, and also have Dante custom fit the finished pieces to the space on completion.

We feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with someone so incredibly dedicated and passionate about their craft

In late 2017 we visited Dante’s workshop and saw a beautiful, bespoke timber desk he had made – we thought that such a (slightly smaller) desk would look wonderful in our apartment’s guest room. Dante said that he could modify the existing desk to custom fit our room and kindly came to our apartment to measure up. We are delighted with the end product which is sure to become a family heirloom.

Based on Dante’s quality of service and workmanship and attention to detail on our desk, we then asked him to make us a new bespoke timber dining table to sit up to eight people – he came to our apartment to measure up and subsequently delivered our new table to our challenging two week program just before Christmas ’17. The table is now the centrepiece of our lounge and we have received many admiring remarks from our dinner guests.

We would recommend Dante to anyone who is looking to procure a truly beautiful, hand-made and unique furniture piece at a very reasonable price.

When we moved into our queenslander we were keen to fill it with some beautiful and individual pieces of furniture. We had approached a few other furniture makers and found they were not really willing to invest the time to make something that suited us. We were very pleasantly surprised when we met Dante – he took all the time we needed over several meetings to help come up with a bed design that had all the details we wanted, was beautiful, and strong enough to last generations. We found Dante to be passionate about creating something individual, traditionally crafted, beautiful and practical, taking great care over the details. He made sure we were happy every step of the way from design through the selection of timber, building and delivery of our new bed. We are thrilled with the result and would strongly recommend Dante’s work to anyone wanting to create something special for their home.

Dante is a one of a kind craftsman. We’ve ordered two beautiful custom pieces and we couldn’t have been more thrilled with the way they turned out. His attention to detail is one of a kind and his approach with constant consultation made the experience seamless.

We look forward to ordering more pieces to add to our collection in the near future. Thank you Dante.

Dante’s passion for designing and making quality furniture was evident not only from the time we met, but throughout the process. I’ve commissioned two pieces to date – a matching dining table and bar table. Dante always kept me involved and updated both in design and progress, and was a pleasure to deal with. I couldn’t be happier with the end result! I look forward to adding to my collection.

Dante, from Stivanello Bespoke, designed and built our outdoor lounge suite (2.5 seater and 2 x chairs) based on a brief (and some inspiration photos) that we had for our back deck. We loved the design process, as Dante is very collaborative and takes the time to understand how you are going to use the furniture and the look that you are after. Our new lounge suite is fabulous – the quality and workmanship are brilliant – and the lounge is standing up really well to the rigours of family life and outdoor living. Dante hits the mark with providing a bespoke piece of furniture, working with your budget and listening to your needs as the end user. We will be returning to Dante for some more of his work in the near future.
