Furla opens a new store in Kolkata, India
May 19, 2014: Furla has opened a new store in Kolkata, India, expanding their presence in the country.
The boutique measures over 643 square feet on a unique floor, which was styled to valorize the Furla universe, the brand’s creative spirit and sophisticated style. Among notable aesthetic features of the interiors are architectural elements inspired by the beautifully restored 18th century Villa in Bologna, which currently houses the company’s headquarters. Blending tradition with modernity, the space is imbued with natural tones and pastel shades, accented with soft and warm lighting and forged from valuable materials such as rosewood and Italian travertine marble, opalescent glass and brass finishing.
Furla’s CEO, Eraldo Poletto, said, “Along with Mumbai’s store, this is our second retail location in India, one of the countries with the highest potential of growth for the brand. The Indian economy is ready and mature to keep on absorbing fashion and luxury products and, as a brand that underscores the values of quality and contemporary design, ensuring timeless elegance and the made in Italy expertise, we are confident we will experience an excellent performance in the country.”
