From Magistretti’s Maralunga 40 sofa to Le Corbusier’s stylish and sturdy Table de conference, your living quarters will never feel the same. Cassina’s newest collection features a contemporary vision, deep in conversation with architecture as seen from pieces such as Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin 1 armchair. Few brands are as steeped in the history and culture of Italian design as Cassina and we have a feeling you’ll want to bring some of their style home. Read more about the Cassina Showroom in Milano.

2/ Arflex This award-winning brand pairs innovative materials and designs to create comfortable products that will suit any living room with contemporary flair. The soft, yet geometric shape of Claesson Koivisto Rune’s Tokio sofa contrasts the playful welcome of Cini Boeri’s Pecorelle sheep-inspired sofa and armchair.

3/ Zanotta Functionality and quality reign supreme with this brand, which is also committed to sustainability and cultural values. At MDW 2018 their showroom featured the Elipse chair paired with the Quaderna 2600 grid pattern table and Achille Castiglioni’s iconic Arco lamp. It’s not all for the living or dining spaces, Zanotta has many accessories to sprinkle around the home like the Milo mirror. The Noli chair by Ludovica + Roberto Palomba expresses Italian craftsmanship with modern colors through its theme “Echoes of Liguria.”

4/ Molteni & C Whether you’re giving your bathroom a makeover or styling your bedroom, Molteni&C will add just the right amount of elegance and functionality to your home. The Heritage Collection exhibiting 80!Molteni is a blast from the archival past with a modern touch including designs from Yasuhiko Itoh, Gio Ponti, one of the great Italian design masters, and many more.

5/ Cappellini For something a little different, mingle with Cappellini. This brand is all over the map, including contemporary furniture and Italian interiors from world famous designers. An avant-garde approach sets them apart from other brands and showrooms. Pieces from Shiro Juramata, such as Revolving Cabinet and Progetti Compiuti, reveal shifting shapes nodding to our interactions with design objects. The Adaptation chair from Fabio Novembre’s 2016 collection and Johan Lindstèn’s Embroidery Chair series allow you to marvel at form, before the object performs its function.

6/ Porro This Italian furniture brand has been around since 1925 creating a wide range of high-quality furnishings and recently celebrating its 90th anniversary. Porro was opened by two brothers, Giulio and Stefano Porro, and continues to use traditional craftsmanship while keeping with modern times incorporating manufacturing technologies. Collaborations with designers such as Alessandro Mendini and GamFratesi allow the company to evolve its catalogue while staying consistent to the company’s design philosophy: simplicity above all.

7/ Giorgetti This year marks 120 years of the “Giorgetti style”. The company was founded by Luigi Giorgetti in Brianza in 1898 and has continuously evolved over the years, becoming an international icon of its signature style, and quality. International success was inevitable for this brand, which has won many awards and is often selected for exclusive interior projects, such as Steven Leung’s Club Marinella in Hong Kong. The shape and elegance of each furniture piece is a testament to the high quality of craftsmanship, material, and design that remains at the core of Giorgetti. Rosella Pugliatti’s ‘HUG’ armchair is a great example of the iconic and signature look.

8/ Boffi is one of the most well-known Italian designer brands in the world. The company’s designer kitchens are synonymous with quality and efficiency. Boffi was founded in 1934 as a small artisanal workshop in the Brianza region. Over a period of over 80 years, it has grown to become a benchmark in the world of design. The turning point for the brand began in the 1950s with the relocation of its production facilities. 

Collaborations with important names in design like Sergio Asti, Joe Colombo, and Antonio Citterio during the 1980s were fundamental for the company’s evolution. Beginning in the 1990s, Piero Lissoni’s leadership of the company as art director helped to give the brand a distinctive mark. He designed some of Boffi’s most preeminent products such as the Aprile and Hide kitchens and closet storage systems. During the same period, Boffi also began producing bathroom furniture and fixtures. After having taken over Norbert Wangen, the high-tech kitchen brand, De Padova, and the Danish office supply company MA/U, Boffi now offers a complete furniture solution for every room of the home.

9/B&B Italia B&B Italia furniture is styled with innovation, design, and quality. Since 1966, the company has been a leader in modern and contemporary Italian furniture. The use of new materials and integration of technology have been trademarks of the company’s success. Many iconic Italian design pieces were created through partnerships with architects and designers such as Mario Bellini and Gaetano Pesce. The company was the first furniture manufacturer to receive the prestigious Compasso d’Oro in 1989. Today, it continues to work with a remarkable list of Italian and international designers and architects, from Zaha Hadid to Piero Lissoni, to create indoor and outdoor furniture.

10/ Poltrona Frau In 1912, Poltrona Frau was founded in Turin. The Italian-made furniture company has had success as an international brand, bringing perfection and elegant design to many corners of the world. For over 100 years, the brand has continued to expand without compromising its core values and quality of materials. One of the most important pieces of Italian Design, Sanluca by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, continues to be a success with a limited edition upholstery entitled “Geophysical Waves” by Max Huber.
