Calligaris at Smart Furniture
Fine, Modern Furniture from Italy
Quick! Let's think about awesome things that Italy makes. First, obviously, spaghetti. Second, obviously pizza. Third, furniture? While the boot-shaped peninsula in southern Europe is probably most known for its art and gastronomy, it also has quite the reputation of building and designing really great furniture. Calligaris is just one of the many examples of world-renowned craftsmanship and design chops that make Italian furniture some of the most desirable around.
From Humble Roots
Like most business founders in the world, Antonio Calligaris likely didn't have world ubiquity in mind when he first started manufacturing the Marocca chair in a small workshop during the 1920s. What started out as a small-scale production for a comfortable and traditional dining style chair eventually blossomed into a world famous brand that builds and designs some of the sleekest furniture in the world. At its inception, Calligaris was all about tradition, but now, it's about innovation and progression.
Modern Furniture with Attitude
In the late 1980s, the Calligaris family moved their company squarely into the contemporary. They aggressively expanded their product selection, choosing to adhere to a more modern aesthetic. In addition to wood, they also expanded the materials used in their products. Now, you can find chairs, tables, beds, sofas, and more in their collection. In 1998, they expanded into the USA, completing their strategy of world domination.
Calligaris's products toe the line delicately between austerity and warmth, modernity and familiarity. For example, the Hyper XR Extendable Dining table features an aggressively styled glass top but is grounded with the warm natural wood base. The Etoile Chair exaggerates traditional dining chair shapes without distorting any proportions or compromising comfort. The Park Extendable Table references Brutalist architecture with its beefy top and base. Even the Parisienne Chair pays homage to modern materials and designs. From the bedroom to the dining room, Calligaris's furniture is sure to transform your home into a modern wonderland of innovation and beauty.
