THE COMPANY

ARETA is an Italian business company founded in 1987. It is located in Francavilla Fontana, in the south of Italy. It established itself as manufacturer and supplier of high- quality polypropylene outdoor furniture thanks to carefully selected raw material. Our products have recently achieved a great success especially in European and non- European contexts.

That is why we decided to extend the range of our items and some years ago, we launched two new successful collections for contract use: The Simil Rattan collection and the Indoor collection. Our main strengths are the good quality of raw material used, the care of design and performance characteristics of all of our products.
