About Studio Como

Studio Como began as a small Italian kitchen cabinetry showroom in 2003. As our relationships and expertise in the industry grew, so did our reputation. Now with three locations in the region, including a 24,000-sq-ft showroom in Denver’s RiNo district, Studio Como is a destination for architects, designers, and design enthusiasts.

Studio Como is luxury European design with a Rocky Mountain aesthetic. The showrooms’ unique compositions feature colors, materials, and design elements that reflect the lifestyles of our clients.

Our Passion

Designers and clients rely on the Studio Como team for our expertise and passion. We immerse ourselves in the world of European and contemporary design — traveling around the world to find inspiration, build relationships, and discover the latest innovations.

Each year, Studio Como designers visit the Salone del Mobile in Milan, ICFF in NYC, the London Design Festival, and IMM in Cologne. To better understand the heritage, craftsmanship, and capabilities of our partners, we make dedicated trips to supplier factories and associated design studios. These trips are never complete without experiencing the European lifestyle — our itineraries are filled with design-driven boutique hotels, restaurants, and architecture that fuel ideas for the year ahead.

The People

Our team at Studio Como includes experts in all aspects of modern and contemporary design — from purchasing and logistics to White Glove Delivery and install, and as always, impeccable design, space planning, and layout for projects of any size.
