MERIDIANI was born in 1996 from a simple yet passionate idea of Laura Ferraro Crosti, wife of Renato Crosti, founder of the company: a new home collection characterized by a recognizable lifestyle, timeless yet always up to date, able to keep an eye open for trends but with deep roots in the past.
After researches driven by passion and expertise the first collection was born in spring 1996 and it was entirely manufactured in Italy thanks to the existing industrial facilities owned by the family; it was the result of the enthusiasm and collaboration between Laura and the designer Andrea Parisio, art director of the brand.
In 2016 the company joined IDB – Italian Design Brands S.p.A. – with the goal of strengthening an already important presence of its brand on international markets and developing synergies in innovative areas through digital transformation processes, shared commercial strategies and new distribution channels.
A collection that, over the years, has expanded and consolidated, while maintaining a clear direction: the desire to create a range of contemporary products which did not betray the lesson of the past and could give rise to a ‘timeless’ collection, able to assimilate the new trends and transcend the whims of the more extreme design. As an artistic director Parisio coordinates the brand image, designs the corporate showrooms and stores and the exhibition settings at the international furniture shows.
Timeless collections, elegant and without frills, essential but still vivacious, modern but with no compromises with temporary trends. A distinguished style, an inspiring new classic that leaves space for personal interpretation.
Furnishings for the living room, the bedroom, the dining area, the library and the outdoor: meticulous signs, precise proportions, essential volumes. Indoor and outdoor collections recall each other also in the details, the precious materials and in the crafts. It’s about the need to feel that the indoor space becomes one with the outdoor one and that elegance, continuity and a thread bind them forever in time.
Each original MERIDIANI product is the result of the use of the best materials and careful quality controls: expertise and attention to detailing are carried out by artisans who perfectly complement the mechanized processes.
A love for handcrafted furniture, legacy of the region in which the company was born and works, which has been conveyed to industrial production. Each authentic MERIDIANI product is supplied with an Authenticity and Warranty Certificate.
