Celebrating 4 Years

In less than 4 years, Amalfi Décor has grown to become an industry leader. With offices and operation in the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Taiwan, and China, we are proud to say we are one of the largest dessert stand brands in the world. We now offer over 100 cake stands and are quickly growing. We haven’t stopped there. Our product lines include decorative and serving trays, candle holder centerpieces, and lighting. We’re dedicated to quality, fine craftsmanship, and providing items to enhance any celebration or home improvement project.

Amalfi Décor was born in 2015 when its founders, Brian Wu and Maria Papageorge, found themselves yearning to satisfy their entrepreneurial dreams. Brian’s father had already owned a lighting and décor factory since 1999. Backed by over 15 years of manufacturing experience, the husband-wife duo decided to take a leap and design their first line of custom décor products. Their passion project continued to operate out of their one-bedroom apartment for all of 2015.

In a business environment that puts pressure on designers to prioritize speed over all else, we choose to remain committed to our craft. For the past four years, Amalfi Décor debunked, over and over again, the myth that efficiency and quality craftsmanship don’t coincide—simply, in our world, they do. Our brand was built with the belief that there is no greater TLC than that provided by an artisan’s hands. We take pride that each one of our designs incorporates handcrafted elements—our metals are crafted into shape by the hands of our factory professionals, our crystals are strung together and beaded by hand, our pieces are finished off with the hand-strokes of each of our artisan-painters to give off our signature distressed style.

We stay committed to the belief that quality craftsmanship is the most important unique value proposition. Our products perform better because they are created differently. Our craftsmen pour their passions and love of artistry into the creation of each design, and it shows. When our items are on display, they provide a note of hand-crafted luxury, no matter where the placement. The details make the difference.

Our Design Philosophy

Our products are all designed in-house and are often inspired by ancient European architecture and décor. Amalfi Décor was named after the Amalfi Coast in Italy. The medieval Roman Catholic Cathedral, Duomo di Amalfi, located in the Amalfi Coast, has inspired many of our patterns and designs. Built during the 9th Century, the Amalfi Cathedral features a delicate intricacy in architecture that we look up to for our own design standards.

Amalfi Cathedral Architecture

Amalfi Cathedral's romanesque-baroque style architecture has inspired the frame patterns in many of our cake stands and décor

In addition to beautiful design, we believe in making things that last. Our quality control is unparalleled. Each of our products is crafted by hand to ensure impeccable usability. For us, décor products are only as beautiful as their quality, and ours are created in-house and adhering to our standards.

And our work will never stop. As our business continues to grow, we are on a constant search to learn and implement new strategies, methods and processes that improve and enhance each person and place that we touch with our designs.
