“It is not the critic who counts… The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause.
Who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”
Stile was born in 1965 out of a passion and devotion to lumber.
In fact the Onofri and Colcelli family have been working for years in the green hills of the Umbrian Tuscan mountains. These two families, the founders of Stile, have been working in the field of lumber.
They started out by supplying firewood in the late 19th century and then became manufacturers of rail road sleepers until the mid 20th century. In the mid-sixties, they came to a turning point: this was the beginning of a company which manufactures mosaic wood floors: the S.Ti.Le Società Tiberina Legnami, now Stile Pavimenti Legno Spa.
Today Stile is a well-known brand in Italy and all around the world Stile is synonymous with quality and elegance.
The continued use of more and more advanced and newer technology, together with their care and experience in selecting the most valuable wood species from all over the world, allow them to be a leading brand name in the wood flooring market.
Starting from 2010, the technical partnership with BONA, a Swedish company leader in woodfloors finishes for over 10 years, has projected Stile into an international dimension, making it, in the world of parquet, the most authoritative ambassador of Made in Italy in the world.
Quality is not only a word but it is something of extremely concrete and verifiable.
Stile has always achieved it thanks to the experience of generations that have been working in the wood field for years. This experience, together with the innovative evolution of the modern technology render our products absolutely in the forefront.
The way to the quality is long and rich in experience and in tests that sometimes seem insuperable. The persistence we show in searching it gave us in the end the great satisfaction that we want to share with our partners.
A greater part of our life takes place on a floor…
…whether on ceramic or terracotta tiles, stone or wood. Wood, in particular, represents a discreet, background presence in our existence. Warming, embellishing and painting it with the colours of nature. In most cases it will survive to us.
This is the reason why, the quality and the unique design of the Italian products are always synonymous with elegance and durability, as well as, and even more so than a dress or a piece of furniture. Stile, thanks to its experience and the technology used, is without doubt the most reliable interpreter of this uniqueness.
Choosing a Stile product, you don’t only buy a wooden floor, but you also make a lifestyle choice and one of belonging because, in the world of “quality wooden floors” is written “made in Italy”, but it is pronounced Stile.
