Cal­li­garis cel­e­brates their 95th year in style.

Lovers of Ital­ian de­sign will be pleased to know that they can find a broad range of fur­ni­ture at Cal­li­garis – both func­tional and trendy, as well as dec­o­ra­tive ac­ces­sories in a myr­iad of shapes, colours, ma­te­ri­als, and fin­ish­ings. With Cal­li­garis, it be­comes pos­si­ble to cre­ate one’s dream home at a rea­son­able price; think jewel-coloured up­hol­stery paired with sleek framed gold cof­fee ta­bles, and ac­ces­sories to boot.

The brand, which cel­e­brates cre­ativ­ity and in­di­vid­u­al­ity, has col­lab­o­rated with de­sign­ers both young and es­tab­lished. Their line-up in­cludes promis­ing names like Va­le­rio Som­mella, Aldo Cibic, and Pin­in­fa­rina. Through these col­lab­o­ra­tions, the brand has cre­ated some of the most trendy, young, fun, and cre­ative de­signs for their lat­est CoDe col­lec­tion, as well as one of their most iconic, and pos­si­bly most com­pli­cated de­signs like the Or­bital ta­ble.

The in­spir­ing story be­hind Cal­li­garis came to be in 1923, when An­to­nio Cal­li­garis pro­duced the brand’s first prod­uct: the Marocca chair. Back then, the Ital­ian firm was a small ar­ti­san work­shop spe­cial­is­ing in the pro­duc­tion of caned seat­ing. When the 1960’s rolled in, au­to­matic ma­chines were in­tro­duced, and the es­tab­lish­ment gained the power to pro­duce one cane seat in a mat­ter of min­utes! This en­abled Cal­li­garis to dis­trib­ute their prod­ucts to cus­tomers across Italy and Europe through deal­ers.

The year 1986 saw yet an­other break­through. Un­der the helm of Alessan­dro Cal­li­garis, the com­pany be­gan ex­per­i­ment­ing with the com­bi­na­tion of ma­te­ri­als thanks to cut­ting-edge tech­nolo­gies. In the fol­low­ing years, Cal­li­garis would be­gin to ex­pand over­seas and also start pro­duc­ing up­hol­stered so­fas and beds, ac­ces­sories, and light­ing.

The story of Cal­li­garis’ suc­cess takes the brand to the present, where over 800 cat­a­logue prod­ucts are avail­able across 100 coun­tries. World­wide, and 95 years from their es­tab­lish­ment, the brand has 620 sales points and three flag­ship stores. To this end, the brand cel­e­brates their an­niver­sary with an up­dated logo and a new web­site in con­tin­ued ef­forts to in­spire home­own­ers in fur­nish­ing their spa­ces – all brought to­gether with a “My Home” book­let. Se­lected pieces can even be cus­tomised in fin­ishes ac­cord­ing to cus­tomer pref­er­ences!

In col­lab­o­rat­ing with pro­fes­sional de­sign­ers, ar­chi­tects, trend­set­ters, and ar­ti­sans, Cal­li­garis has pro­vided home­own­ers with an op­por­tu­nity to nar­rate a story within their homes, seal­ing them with iconic, new, mod­ern-con­tem­po­rary, in­tel­li­gent, and ex­cit­ing de­signs.
