Meridiani was born in 1996 from a simple yet passionate idea held by Laura Ferraro Crosti to create a fresh and timeless yet up–to–date home collection. She partnered with Italian designer Andrea Parisio on a line entirely manufactured in Italy–and it was a resounding success. Laura's husband, Renato Crosti–who had established his own furniture upholstery production business in 1973–joined her, and founded Meridiani. Today, the company handcrafts impeccably tailored sofas, sofa beds, daybeds, armchairs, poufs, tables, chairs, consoles, desks, storage units, rugs, outdoor furnishings and more.
