Our history

Arrex Le Cucine has been present in the furniture sector for over 40 years.



The  history of Arrex Le Cucine is  the story of a brand  that’s been present in the furniture sector  since 1973. A brand whose  creations  live in the heart of millions of homes and  families in Italy and around the world.

Arrex Le Cucine was established during a period when the economic upturn is transforming lifestyles and way they thought about the home environment, when furniture became a source of comfort, well-being and satisfaction. From rustic, artisanal kitchens to modular kitchens is just a short step, and Arrex Le Cucine  is firmly at the forefront of this change. We were both witness to and protagonists in a transformation which saw a product and a style start to influence – and continue to influence – many of the social and cultural aspects of everyday life.The  history of Arrex Le Cucine is  the story of a brand  that’s been present in the furniture sector  since 1973.
