The Calligaris story
Antonio Calligaris started his small artisanal business in 1923, producing the "Marocca" chair with wood from the Italian mountains and local straw. The business grew with the furniture made mainly by hand. In the 1960s the business modernized and Calligaris began to grow into the world recognized brand it is today. In the 1990s Calligaris expanded its range with beds, sofa and accessories in wood, metal, plastic, leather and glass. Now Calligaris is a truly international company, famous for its design and innovation, with flagship stores in Milan and Paris.
