1923 - THE BIRTH OF THE COMPANY
Calligaris was founded in Manzano, in the province of Udine, in 1923, starting out as a small artisan laboratory created by Antonio Calligaris. There he produced the MAROCCA chair, with its wooden frame and caned seat, a typical product for the area that would later become known as the ?chair district?. The cut and assembly of the wooden parts was mainly entrusted to the men, while the caning was carried out by women who went to the customers' homes and, in roughly two hours, were able to complete one chair.
1920-1960: THE FIRST PRODUCTIONS
The workshop of Antonio Calligaris organizes its production, bringing in wood from the surrounding mountains and straw from the Friulan lagoon. The apprentices of the workshop are entrusted with colouring the straw, dyed with natural pigments. The machines are few, the majority of the work is still done manually and it is mainly women who take care of weaving the seats and putting the finishing touches on the chairs.
In the 1950s, Romeo inherited his father?s business and was able to further develop it, also thanks to the economic boom of the post-war period.
1960-1980: CALLIGARIS IS AN INDUSTRY
In the 60s, the economic boom coincides with the modernization of the calligaris family business: the business was passed on to the third Calligaris generation, to Alessandro and Walter, who put their faith in an automatic caning machine that could cane a seat in one minute and twenty seconds using synthetic fibres similar to straw.
In subsequent years, production capacity continued to grow and the business gradually transformed into a well-structured industrial company, leader in a geographical area known worldwide as "the chair district", which begins to lay the groundwork for the conquest of other markets.
Creation of the first catalog and the start of foreign exports. From that moment, Calligaris began to distribute its products to the final customer through dealers located across Italy and Europe.
1980-2000: FROM FIRM TO BRAND
In 1986, Alessandro calligaris, the third generation of the family, takes over the presidency of the company.
Calligaris expands its range with complete furnishing solutions: chairs, tables, furniture, beds, sofas, furnishing and decorative accessories.
Wood is no longer the only material by which Calligaris measures its vocation to innovation, the company now also begins to work in metal, plastic, leather and glass.
In 1998, the company opens its first American subsidiary in High Point (North Carolina).
2000-2012: CALLIGARIS 2.0

In 2008 Calligaris opens its first Flagship Store in Milan, which is then followed in 2012 by a second one in Paris nel 2012.
