Story of 4 Generations
1897Lazzoni’s Story of Four Generations
With roots dating back over a century, Lazzoni is much more than a design house. The core of Lazzoni is in its first three letters: “Laz”. The Laz Tribe is known for building wood Serander houses in the Black Sea coastal region of Turkey at the northeast border of Georgia. (above) Our first generation founder, Laz Hasan the carpenter. His craft still stands tall today. The wood structure is the Serander house, dating back circa 1897. Next to it is our first assembly car, Opel (1961).
1960Bulut Kitchen and Woodwork
Osman, a 2nd generation carpenter, migrated to the capital from his Black-sea village. In less than 10 years he founded Bulut Kolektif and started the first modular kitchen manufacturer of Eastern Europe and Turkey. (above) Our 2nd and 3rd generations standing in front of Lazzoni’s first carpentry shop (1960).
Inspired by late-century modern Italian design and crafted with materials supplied from Italy and Germany, all of our products are created with minimal affect to the environment. This style of healthy living that we aspire to is learned from our ancestors. (above) 1990’s Massimo & Lella Vignelli design reception desk is an inspiration to Lazzoni’s modern design vision.
Our 2002 partnership with the Giuseppe Nicoletti family, who have also been handcrafting leather sofas for generations, steered our vision for international growth. Working with Giuseppe and his son Eustachio inspired us to start our New York Collection which is retailed throughout our US design showrooms today.
2005Lazzoni Manufacturing Facility
Yaşar Kababulut, a 3rd generation member of the family, opens the 25.000 m2 modern manufacturing facility in Akyurt, Ankara with plans to expand Lazzoni reach overseas.
2006Top Quality Products
Supplying our leather from Gruppo Mastrotto (Vicenza, Italy) and our hardware from Hettich Germany and Blum (Austria), we constantly seek out the best suppliers to hold our “Best quality for the price” promise.

20214th generation family
Presently run by the 4th generation family members, we greet our customers in New York with the same excitement as our ancestors did a century ago. In our Lazzoni family we have a promise. A promise to ourselves to always preserve our ethos and integrity for creating furniture and homes with feeling and dedication to every square foot. A promise to our loyal customers to challenge the status quo. To develop functionality within design that is not defined by space. A promise to never laugh when the occasional passerby falls asleep on a bed in the showroom. And above all, a promise to keep spreading the philosophy of the Lazzoni lifestyle for generations to come.
