the name "attica"
Attica was one of the cultural centres of Greece during the Early Iron Age. It was a time when the beautiful was part of everyday life; it was not set aside for special occasions or confined to objects of particular merit. The beautiful was not only for the major arts of architecture, painting, and sculpture, but all the minor ones as well - furniture, vases, and common household objects.
At Attica Furnishings, this tradition continues. Our modern concept of beauty is clean lines without unnecessary adornment. Let the beautiful become part of your everyday life.
