Specialized in designing and producing acrylic furniture and accessories, Acrilico Fabbrica creates custom-made items based on the requirements of each customer. Shoppers can choose pieces from the various product images in the photo gallery on the website. On the other hand, clients can also design their own products by uploading an image of their desired piece of furniture or accessory onto Acrilico Fabbrica's website and the store will create a custom-made piece.
