Why Brazilian Cabinetry you may ask?
First, I was born in Brazil and lived there until I turned 18. Knowing that Brazil has a huge pool of great design talent and exceptionally well-manufactured products, how could I not share it with my fellow Canadians?
How did Brazil end up with great design/designers and exceptional manufacturing?
A little background with a quick look at history…
If you have never traveled to Brazil, you might not know that Brazil has 500 years of immigration and cultural history. Portuguese explorers arrived in Brazil in 1,500 AC and identified incredible resources, so they began developing the land. In the 1800s slavery was abolished in Brazil and suddenly the need for general labour became so huge that the immigration gates opened widely for other European nationals to make Brazil their home.
Italians came in boatloads and were given land, the tools, and seeds to begin working to sustain themselves. Soon these skilled craftsmen began also relying on their other talents, such as cabinet and furniture making.
Due to the similar weather and geography to Europe, the south of Brazil became home to most Europeans who immigrated in the early 1900s, including my grandparents. Today the south of Brazil is our own slice of Europe, home to top manufacturing industries, and of course the top South American furniture manufacturers such as Unicasa Moveis.
Here’s a quick tour of the product options Dell Anno Canada offers:
