Cersaie 2017, the nature of wood is ever more protagonist

10 October


We have experienced many emotions during these five days of Cersaie, thanks to the people’s affection and above all thanks to the warm welcome that the public has reserved to the many latest products we have presented during this 2017 edition.
From September 25th to September 29th, lots of Italian and foreign authorized personnel rushed our booth, a sign of the growing concern that our company enjoys globally and a demonstration of how true Made in Italy is looked for.

Clip Up System® was the protagonist of our booth, it was installed on all paved surfaces, giving the opportunity to all visitors to see and touch the great reliability of this innovative laying system. The various certifications obtained have allowed it to attract the attention of professionals who have included it in the specifications of prestigious contracts.
In the past few weeks, the new Clip Up System® site was also online, and there, you can find all the required information, download the technical data sheets, view the videos of its realizations, and much more.

The brand new Habitat finish has raised a great interest: it is almost imperceptible, leaving the wood its natural appearance, it fascinates eyes, touch and mind. In this way the wood remains almost raw at sight, but at the same time it becomes more durable and functional, perfect to combine the desire for elegance and for design.
With Habitat wood seems unfinished in order to keep its “essence”. It is ideal for those who love a context that respects simplicity, leaving this material the task of giving allure to the room.

At Cersaie, we have presented another important newness that is the new Xilema Line,
made with old “dead” trees. The logs of wood that were still standing or fallen naturally in the forests, often with bizarre shapes, are treated and recovered to produce a parquet with an antique appearance and with particular shades. These trunks, in fact, have already lost all the lymph that usually wood contains, and that is why color nuances are particularly suitable for environments that want to enhance the material in its original beauty. With this innovative product we also get a double ecological function: to keep the wood clean and to reuse a waste material. The Xilema Line, therefore, gives a real second life to wood, emphasizing an extraordinary material that gives, the space in which it is laid, a particular and timeless elegance.

The wall with the beautiful Dupla Herringbone, another new product by Garbelotto, was also taken into high consideration. This is a special Noblesse Herringbone (Hungarian) where the different dimension of the elements creates an original game that exalts the laying. Thanks to the changeable angulation, the various finishes and woody species you can use, you can really indulge yourself in choosing it and create the desired double-length composition.

Now that Cersaie is over, we will return to our daily work with new energies and new ideas, thinking of ever more innovative solutions, to respond in an ever-original way to our customers’needs.
The passion we put into our work and into collections will also accompany us in the design of new parquet that could do the beauty of wood justice.

How to choose outdoor parquet: here are our advices!

25 July


Parquet is a natural material that is constantly changing, but its consistency and strength, together with the treatments that can be made on it, make it a lining that can fit perfectly to most of the outdoor environments: swimming pool sides, porches , garden pathways that can be embellished with this flooring that has always been synonymous with class, warmth and elegance.

Not to mention that outdoor decking is one of the most eco friendly solutions: the materials used for laying and treating it are biocompatible and they do not give rise to harmful intakes into the environment.
How do you have to choose it?

First of all, it is best to orient yourself to the choice of materials for your outdoor parquet, since it is essential to opt for wood species with:
• High natural impermeability to increase weather resistance;
• Resistance and toughness, to combat mechanical abrasion which is externally higher than internal one.
Among the recommended species, we find Massaranduba, Ipè Lapacho, Teak, Thermo Ash and Thermo Teak.

A second element to consider when choosing decking is the size of the slats:
• It is best to consider thicknesses not less than 1,9 / 2 cm
• The optimal lengths are those up to 50 cm
• The width should not exceed 12 cm

As for the outdoor parquet laying operations, your trusted installer will be able to advise you best; At the beginning, it is essential to pay attention to a sloping installation that allows rainwater to drain. Also the stand is very important, the aluminum profile is the better one that should be thickened also with a 5 mm rubber support.

For the preparation of the boards and their laying, follow the instructions of the A.I.P.P.L. “Parquet from the project to laying – Chapter 10 – Outdoor parquet”.

And now that you have chosen your outdoor wooden floor, you just have to enjoy all of its magic in the garden!

Dukley Gardens: Perfect Union Between Architecture and Nature

10 July


Italian companies are renowned all over the world for their technical skills and creativity, and for the design that distinguish them. Garbelotto has this reputation in the international collaborations where he takes part: top-level achievements that allow to express to the fullest the capabilities of adapting to the prepared customers’ requests and demands of both quality of the product and the service offered by the company.

Among the most prestigious achievements we have been part of, one cannot forget the Dukley Gardens, a luxury resort in Budva, Montenegro, created by the cooperation of a pool of operators from different countries: the German NPS Tchoban Voss Architekten BDAAl, that cared for the architectural project; the architect Bogdan Slavica for the realization of the interiors; the US Turner Construction; the Montenegrin design studio Synthesis; and of course, Garbelotto the chosen partner for the supply of wooden floor.

Budva is considered the Montecarlo of the Adriatic, an enchanting place for its natural beauty and location; enriched by biodiversity in its unique vegetation, the wonderful beaches of Guvno and Tanga, Budva has a wonderful harbor with a yacht club, a SPA center, cafes and restaurants. It is also characterized by a traditional architecture that makes extensive use of stone, as one can admire in the old town.

The challenge was to build a luxury resort, nestled in a wild and rich wilderness peninsula, safeguarding the landscape and architectural traditions of the place. Dukley Gardens is, from this point of view, a winning bet thanks to all partners’ commitment and ability.
Most of the flora has been left in its natural splendor: pines, cypresses and olive trees of the site have been preserved. More than 5,000 new plant species have been added to the Dukley Gardens natural environment (also with ecological affinity). The exteriors are characterized by the use of the traditional stone of Budva, to ensure the aesthetic relationship with the surrounding environment; the entire complex works on the architectural level as a clever play between tradition and technology, between classical and contemporary trends. The structure slopes gently down to the seashore, respecting the landscape, and the 36 villas and 202 apartments are designed to immerse themselves in nature: the ocean-facing bedrooms disclose breathtaking views and at the same time they offer guests luxurious and personal interiors.

No surprise if in the Dukley Gardens the choice fell on the parquet: a material always capable of giving brightness and naturalness, above all in a context where modernity and tradition, beauty and history have to meet. Not a simple wooden floor anyway, but the prefinished Master Floor of Garbelotto. The attempt was to keep originality and organicity, so it was necessary to have a product that could adapt to different customizations, coming from select raw materials and completely free from harmful emissions. The Master Floor product has all these features, but the Dukley Gardens project needed a step further: the customization of the environments required different sizes and nuances, as well as the guarantee of treatments performed as a work of art, for a very high context level. For these reasons, Garbelotto produces in Veneto, in the province of Treviso, taking care of all the smallest details of the product, watching the tradition and the ability to innovate it.
It is a great pride for us to boast such an important and successful collaboration among our achievements.
Garbelotto is an ideal partner for large and small projects.

Garbelotto more and more social: we are also on Instagram!

12 June


In a field such as the design one, where the aesthetics and the pursuit of the beauty are always in the foreground, one can’t certainly do without paying particular attention to the visual part of communication, which tells our achievements in an elegant and detailed way, but at the same time it shows the backstage of our work, the hands of our masters and our craftsmen’s love for the wood.

For a few days, in fact, the story of what we do, has also been explained through our new Instagram account. Here, in addition to the images of our most beautiful designs and the details of the processing of our wooden floors, we want to give space to those who choose us every day as a partner, who give us confidence and decide to lay our parquet 100 % made in Italy.

Our aim is to give visibility to the realizations of our collaborators, the installers who rely on us, the references of our retailers, the homes of people who choose to walk on our parquet floors, to create an ever-expanding account, built with you day after day.

Start following us on Instagram and send us photos of your achievements.

We will be happy to share them on our social profiles!

The Parquet among the Furniture 2017 Trends

7 February

eccellenza parquet

Among the furniture industry trend for 2017, the parquet is the real protagonist. An evergreen that adapts to any environment and gives a warm and cozy touch to your home.
Which are the advantages in choosing this type of flooring? We choose to identify them in the “3 E of the Parquet”. That’ s what they’re about!

2017 will be focused primarily on the issue of products sustainability: always more people are concerned about environmental issues and very often their choices are subordinated to the desire to minimize the impact on the reference landscape.
Design and eco-friendliness are essential elements for all companies in the furniture field, who want to impose their products on the market and realize leading ones for the new year.

Wooden floor is able to enhance a surplus of elegance and sophistication to any room. Combined with a boho chic decor or a vintage style, set in a cottage or in a loft, the floor is a versatile coating and it will be a real star in every space of yours.
In this sense, artistic floor is bidding to be one of the most important trends of the year: in fashion magazines, in furnishing catalogues of the big brands and the most innovative design installations, the laying and geometric compositions, that can be achieved thanks to the parquet, play an important role.

Following 2017 trends, the square compositions of the Creator line are perfect to give each room a touch of elegance. A handmade product with a unique design made by our master craftsmen, which is inspired by the ancient dwellings but which is able to be integrated in any space. Even the herringbone is still at the top: after being the true star during 2016, these setting patterns will continue to be prominent in the year just started.

The parquet is not a simple wooden floor, it is much more: it is handmade excellence, attention to detail, innovation, beauty and versatility. With its many alternatives, it is able to meet all the needs of the market, always ensuring excellence not only aesthetic, but also functional. In fact, no coating material is customizable as the wood is: from the color finishes, the type of varnish to the choice of wood, the parquet can be uniquely tailored to the needs of the customer in all its nuances, with the ability to intervene at any time of processing of a product 100% Made in Italy.
