Three new finishes for the Cleaf ennobled panels

Cleaf is an Italian company that produces surfaces and innovative solutions for the furniture and interior design sectors; since 1975 the Caspani family has passionately pursued an entrepreneurial path that skilfully combines tradition and innovation.
Ennobled coated panels, laminates, edges and semi-finished products are entirely developed within the four production sites in Brianza, one for each of the four divisions. A flexible model that offers the opportunity for continuous experimentation to find, and then transfer, particular tactile and visual sensations to the covering surfaces.
The company constantly proposes new finishes that make up a rich product system much appreciated by architects and companies that use it to cover furniture and environments in line with the latest trends in design.


Three new Cleaf finishes

The ennobled panels are wood-based panels revisited by decorative papers or polymer leaves. The latest finishes proposed by Cleaf are Fronda, Ovatta and Réna.
Fronda reproduces the wood of the elm, a plant widespread in the Italian countryside until the middle of the 20th century. Its leafiness is exalted by the Latin poet Virgil in the Bucolics. The veins are similar to those of oak, but the color of the essence is brighter.
Ovatta eproduces the uniformity and softness to the touch of the cotton wool, this flap obtained by mixing cotton cuttings and used in tailoring and upholstery for the upholstery of clothes and sofas.
Finally, Réna is the horizontal development of the Sablè finish. Created to meet the needs of door linings, it is also perfect for furniture and interior design. Its brushing effect is typical of the wood essences worked by skilled artisan hands.
