Capture the vibrant and romantic lifestyle of Old World Spain in this grand Villa Valencia Collection by Michael Amini Original Furniture Designs available at FurnitureCart. The essence of this collection can be found in the traditional architecture and dramatic natural settings of the villages abutting the crystalline waters of the Spanish coastline.
The Villa Valencia draws its inspirations from the city of Valencia, in Spain. The name itself comes from the Latin name of the city, Valentia, which means “strength” and “vigor.” As it sits in the center of the Spanish Mediterranean coastline, Valencia overlooks the Gulf of Valencia, and is backed by mountains and rolling plains, creating a breathtaking environment. This area has seen numerous historical events, and as such, its character has continually developed.

Solid birch is used in all key structural areas of case goods, as well as chair frames, feet, moldings, trim and carvings, because the close grain and satiny texture of the species brilliantly showcases the rich color of the Fruitwood finish. The natural wood provides a durable substrate, and makes for a heirloom quality piece. All wood drawer construction employs French dovetail fronts and English dovetail backs, which are known for their strong resistance to being pulled apart, as series of tails and pins join together to create a solid joint. Velvet and Cedar lining with metal ball-bearing in the bottom drawers of the dresser and chest gives these drawers a unique fresh aroma that helps protect items stored within, as well as provides a natural insect repellent.
Plywood backs add uncompromising durability and added support. Other companies may use inexpensive MDF, or particleboard backing on their cases, whereas AICO Furniture utilizes multi-layer plywood which is more expensive. The layers in this plywood are cross-bonded in the manufacturing process for added strength. Cross-bonding is a technique where the grain of each wood layer is applied perpendicular to each other. This creates four solid sides in our cases, which translates to an indescribably strong “no-flex” construction, ensuring the longevity of your furniture.
The finest high quality synthetic materials in the traditional carvings, which resist cracking, splitting and warping are used to accentuate the wood designs. The durable synthetic materials take an all the characteristics, beauty and luster of wood, so they never seem out-of-place within the collection.
The Luxurious Villa Valencia collection draws its details from the history. From its marble relief to the unique multi-faceted beveled glass encasements, Villa Valencia is a timeless collection to be treasured year after year.
