WHEN AND WHY WE CREATED KIRSCHON
After many years of living, travelling and working in Asia we felt that it was time to return to Europe, to our roots and families. We saw the opportunity to introduce petrified wood in Italy since it wasn't very present there yet and combining it with thew local art we had grown to love, presented in a western context - a combination we explored in multiple property developments over the years and saw that people were very drawn to. We wanted to offer customers a unique and personal experience while guiding them to stunning pieces that engage and make gorgeous, meaningful gifts. And who knows, offer pieces that just might work as the powerful talisman's they're believed to be in the rural areas of their origin...
The company was founded in Italy in the summer of 2018, with a Showroom in Como and a Web-Shop. During the fall of 2021 we expanded the business with a larger warehouse, Art gallery and Showroom located on the beautiful hills of Lake Como, housing the growing Collection.
