With contemporary pieces that are comfortable and crafty, it’s no wonder that Tidelli is featured in over 12 exclusive shops scattered throughout the Brazillian market. By designing with eye-catching colors, fashionable yet functional designs and creating utterly stunning spaces, Tatiana has no doubt earned her spot at this week’s Maker Monday. Introducing the revolutionary, Tatiana Mandelli.


The playful blue scattered around this patio with woven accents leaves it feeling sophisticated yet durable. The combination of natural, untamed outdoors with the tailored, curated outdoor furniture is a Tidelli staple.

Andrew Joseph: Describe your design style as if you were explaining it to someone who cannot see.
Tatiana Mandelli: We believe in the power of unrestricted creativity. We tap in our partnership with designers, our hand-made manufacturing processes, and the expertise in dealing with a wide variety of materials to create functional, playful, eye-catching, and durable outdoor furniture.

We tap into our Brazilian culture and resources – playful forms, craftsmanship, and our natural resources (like Brazilian eucalyptus Wood, our own proprietary made in house nautical rope, Brazilian stones, and special fabrics) to give elegance in any environment. Over 30 years of technology combined with a luxury design and unique style. With a factory specializing in the production of their own nautical ropes, Tidelli searches for durability assurance and strength in its main flagship.


Pretty in pink. From the modern take on the rattan chair, to the classic marble coffee table anchoring the space together, this space is a dream for those who refuse to compromise style for comfort.

Andrew: What are three words to describe where you live?
Tatiana: (Santa Monica): Sunny, lively, welcoming.

Andrew: How would you define your work in four words
Tatiana: Handmade, luxurious, colorful, playful.

Ah, to spend a day swinging between the palm fronds in the uber-lux woven hammock masterpiece. This room’s color palette is as equally soothing as it is opulent, and has summer vibes galore.

Andrew: What would you like to be remembered for?
Tatiana: At Tidelli, we want to be remembered for creating unique, sophisticated products that can elevate personalized experiences. Whether it is a family and friends get together or a company outing — Tidelli has a wide variety of offerings that can create a welcoming atmosphere no matter what your style may be. Ranging from tables and chairs to swings and rugs — we truly are a one stop shop for your outdoor needs and beyond.


Woven chairs. Fringe lined umbrellas. Hues of coral and teal. Who could possibly wish for anything better? This colorful array of outdoor finishing features Tidelli’s original Escuna Lounge Chair, a fan favorite.
