A family story

It's not every day we get to introduce a company with almost 200 years of history.
Especially if it's a family business we're talking about.

Our family grew up here amidst the castles and apple orchards of the Val di Non. Every day, our work is the same, for which we have always been known: creating kitchens.

We are Walter, Alberto and Paolo Cova. We inherited the knowledge and experience of the craftsmen in our family, their passion for working by the book and their taste for beautiful, functional furnishings.

Cova is our company
We blend industrial efficiency with care for detail, typical of craft production, the tradition of our work with the simple lines of our kitchens.

We design them with the aim to make them last over time: our design consists of clean, harmonious lines and our materials have always been selected from among the most reliable and long-lasting.
