House of Fortunata

In 1780 the energetic Italian dressage rider Maria Antonia Fortunata Franceschini met an Amsterdam aristocrat and merchant Hieronymus Baron van Slingeland, using elegance and vivacity with class and reason.

Two hundred and thirty years on, our family still holds to those pillars, adding a touch of the past to it. 

We believe that behind every great design lies a meticulously developed concept. 

Sprezzatura, as the Italians so wonderfully call it.

Our concepts are built up from practical purpose, historic understanding and the timeless laws of proportion and style. A purpose for every detail. Aesthetics out of logic.

Thus Fortunata today creates the heritage of tomorrow.
