“I designed the table ‘La Grande Mamma’ for my house in Sicily many years ago. To me the table represents togetherness and happy times – words deeply connected to my own family – hence the name La Famiglia. My Danish family could easily be Italian. In fact, we are maybe more Italian than even most Italians are. And being married to an Italian and having had his family around the past 22 years, I have a lot of first-hand experience on family gatherings, giant lunches and lively dinners – and needed a spacious table to connect us all,”
– Designer Christina Arnoldi.
This is how it all started, the dining table for 22 people, embracing an entire family. Being the first grand item of the La Famiglia Collection, this table where designed out of passion and necessity. Passion for great interior design and lovely family dinners, and a need of a table big enough to have a big mixed Danish and Italian family. La Grande Mamma.

Danish designer and interior decorator Christina Arnoldi founded La Famiglia Furniture in 2016. Brought up in Denmark, and having spent half her life in Italy, she has a dual design citizenship: she is dedicated to the natural materials, handcrafted furniture and sensuous textures connected to a Nordic design tradition. At the same time, she values the Italian larger-than-life approach to creating spaces that are more amore and less average. For Christina Arnoldi that results in furniture having both the Nordic quality and the Italian elegance. Besides La Famiglia Furniture, Christina also work as an interior consultant, her international signature style gracing a long list of homes and commercial spaces.
