“Made in Italy” boasts a celebrated pedigree second to none in fashion, design and architecture. In myriad ways, New York-based Muretti is the epitome of such a reputation because of its distinctive cabinetry and the luxurious, seamless experiences it offers to discerning clients. For more than 25 years, Muretti has been synonymous with resplendent Italian-made kitchens, vanities and closets.
With widely embraced designers in New York, manufacturers in Italy and personalized American service, Muretti is living up to its promise of inspiring others to create the living environs that dreams are made of. While the company services customers across the country, it has begun expansion in the Charleston market.
Founded by owner Marcin Lach, Muretti is the result of a lifelong pursuit of a passion that gave rise during his youth in his native Poland. “I was very young when I honed my skills for making beautiful cabinets,” says Lach. “I followed up by attending trade school, where I graduated with honors. Muretti is the culmination of my journey. I am very proud that we use the finest natural resources, and every single project is overseen by me.”
Lach’s executive team is rounded out by Carlos Coronado, who heads up the talented design team, and Sonia Wojcicki, who oversees marketing and public relations. “Working with this extraordinary team has been a real joy,” says Lach. “We are like-minded and all dedicated to doing the utmost for our clients.”
Muretti’s projects range from single product to multi-unit, and no job is too big or too small. “We go above and beyond to provide luxury that will take you to extraordinary places within your own home,” says Wojcicki, adding, “Our fundamental purpose at Muretti is not only to create exquisite surroundings but also to ensure a one-of-a-kind experience from start to finish.”
Coronado, who has built a solid reputation for utilizing limited space to maximize usage, is a lifelong creator of art and design. His considerable skills are bolstered by an acute attention to detail that delivers tailor-made designs from modern to traditional. Working with his talented designers, Coronado stresses that every family is unique and so should be their homes.
“It is crucial to work closely with our clients in order to be confident we are in sync. That’s why the time spent with customers is invaluable,” he says. “Our designers work tirelessly so the outcome meets the client’s needs, lifestyle and, of course, budget.”
While the company’s focus is cabinetry, the process does not end there. The team makes recommendations on appliances, fixtures and brands. Once a contract is agreed upon, the process takes approximately 10 to 12 weeks. Professional 3-D renderings allow clients to see the final results before the cabinetry even exists.
A family-owned business, Muretti has partnerships with renowned companies such as Ferrari, and with premier purveyors of the very best Italian materials. “We are committed to exploring every possible means to deliver for our clients. We want them to be beyond thrilled with the outcome—whether a custom kitchen, vanity or closet,” Lach says.
Muretti utilizes a seven-step process to make sure there are plenty of junctures to meet any challenges. An architectural review is followed by the design plan, shop drawings, field dimensions (where all details are thoroughly analyzed at the job site), quality control, installation and, lastly, the punch list.
During the pandemic, one new client decided it was the ideal time to redo her kitchen, and she’s thrilled she chose Muretti. “Having worked for a prestigious woodworking firm in Manhattan for many years, I was familiar with all the high-end Italian kitchen manufacturers located in New York. I had gotten three quotes when my contractor recommended getting one from Muretti,” she says. “I am so happy I did because I ended up saving more than $10,000 for the same kitchen cabinetry and design. The extra money was used for a professional chef’s stove—Italian, of course.”
Clearly, Muretti is gaining ground on its fidelity to provide luxury that takes clients “to extraordinary places within their own homes”—one project at a time.
