The Calligaris group came into being through its passion for wood. Founded by Antonio Calligaris in 1923, this family-run company designs, produces and distributes chairs, tables, beds, sofas, storage units and furnishing accessories. Every day Calligaris works with care, passion and creativity to bring into being the best of Italian design, making high quality design products at an accessible price.

The Calligaris group is owned for 40% by the L-Capital fund sponsored by the LVMH luxury goods group; it has 600 employees, distribution branches in the US and Japan and five manufacturing plants, including one in Croatia.

Calligaris distributes its products in 90 countries worldwide.
It produces 120 thousand units per month with over 7000 product variations for the kitchen, living room and bedroom.

Every day Calligaris delivers over 1,000 cubic metres of goods comprising over 800 catalogue products. All this is made possible thanks to the people making up Calligaris.

Founded in 1923 by Antonio Calligaris and now directed by Alessandro Calligaris, the company went from producing furniture for third parties to leading the home furnishing sector with its own brand, promoting research, design and innovation as well as the values of tradition, ethics and dedication characterising its quality standards.

In 2008 Calligaris opened its first Flagship Store in Milan (Italy) and at present has monobrand stores in Shanghai (China), Lyon (France), New York (USA), Toronto (Canada), Seoul (South Korea) and Rome (Italy). In April 2012 a new store was opened in Paris (France), in Boulevard de Sebastopol, and in May the second Flagship Store will be opened in Paris in Rue du Bac.

In the United States Calligaris operates through Calligaris USA Inc., its American branch which is based in High Point, North Carolina, where it has 7,000 square metres of offices and warehouses covering the North American market (USA and Canada).

Calligaris has a second distribution centre supplying the west coast, located in San Leandro, in California, with facilities covering over 3,000 square metres.

The other Calligaris group branch is in Japan, in Kobe, just a few kilometres south of Osaka, and covers the Far Eastern market.
