Product features

The products in the catalog are marked with the Plinio il Giovane brand.
The company reserves the right to modify, without notice and for reasons of improvement, the characteristics of its production according to the continuous technological evolution.
The color samples indicated in the catalog are presented as an indication only and may not correspond to the real colors.

All our products are unique pieces. Made one by one, assembled, sanded and polished by hand. Plinio il Giovane products have always been treated and polished with products that maintain the naturalness of the wood. This choice guarantees the uniqueness of the color of each piece, which will be different from any other and will acquire a patina over time.
Since there is no plant alike, it is inevitable that our natural essences also differ slightly from each other both in terms of color and grain. In addition, the excessive selection of woods depersonalises the product as well as negatively affecting the environment by considerably increasing the waste material.

If exposed to light and in any case with the passage of time, the color of the wood alters. Color differences may occur over time.
Parts made of solid wood exposed to strong changes in temperature and / or humidity can cause warping or cracking.
These ‘movements’ of the wood are to be considered completely natural and determined by the change in environmental conditions and therefore do not constitute a defect of the product. Any small imperfections in the surface are due to the normal processing, sanding and polishing process and are therefore not to be considered defects.

Plinio il Giovane is not responsible for the improper use of its Products by the Customer or any other person.

Right of withdrawal

The supply of each individual product is subject to the condition that the customers of the digital platform exercise their right of withdrawal due to the international law in force on distance and online sales.
