ITALIAN AT HEART
Italian-born Calligaris makes it easy for customers to express their personas by offering a wide variety of furniture and accessories, all under the very same roof.
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.
