Calligaris was founded in 1923, when Antonio Calligaris produced his very first chair -- the "Marocca" model. In the 1930's, Antonio passed the family-owned business onto his son, Romeo. After thirty years, Romeo Calligaris was ultimately able to develop his father's once small, Italian furniture store into an innovative, industry-leading company. Calligaris became so successful, that by the 1990's, the company began selling its products internationally, and expanded into four new countries, including the United States. Today Calligaris continues its legacy as an industry leader. With a strong focus on technology and development, Calligaris still finds its most important resource is the people who develop and manufacture its products, enabling the company to stay at the forefront of the furniture industry. The results of this are found in the "freedom of living? concept, which emphasizes extreme versatility and functionality. This allows the consumer to shape their living space to exactly their specifications.

The identity of Calligaris is defined by our philosophy of contemporary design as an expression of life, style, evolving attitudes and changing needs.
We continue our 92 year journey by constantly imagining cosy, liveable spaces – spaces able to communicate the personality of those who live there. Our task, is to design products that are intelligent as well as beautiful. We look at the smallest details to give our furniture surprising technical features – which we define as smart details: mechanisms which are both innovative and simple, that turn a coffee table into dining table, and dining tables that double in size. We experiment with materials and colours to make endless combinations which are forward thinking, leaving you the possibility to free your imagination and create unique spaces. The Calliigaris world is one of dynamic creativity, committed to the design of furniture and furnishing accessories that are affordable, innovative, universal and timeless.
Founded by Antonio Calligaris in 1923, our furniture is sold in over 90 countries around the world and known for ecological, sustainable manufacturing.
