Company

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 the same year the collection was shown in the first atelier in Milan together with a rich textile range – a distinguishing feature of the brand since its dawn.
The successful first showing and the excellent feedback received by insiders and customers led naturally, in year 2000, to the creation and promotion of the first official collection as Meridiani.
Thirty years of experience previously acquired in manufacturing high quality furniture paddings and upholstered beds turned out to be one of the primary elements that contributed to the success of the new 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.

Collections
HOME: 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.

Precious textiles, textures stolen from the richest wardrobe: natural fibers such as linen, cotton, velvet and chenille, elegant threads transformed in couches, beds armchairs and chaise longues. The softness of full grain leather and the strength of hide are emphasized by seams inspired by the art of saddlery.

Designer
Born in Lodi in 1964 Andrea Parisio, art director and designer of MERIDIANI, attended the European Design Institute in Milan and graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Pavia.

After a rich experience in designing residential and commercial spaces, in 1996 Parisio joined the company and cooperated with Laura Ferraro Crosti, when opening the first store in Milan, a space / laboratory of ideas, in which his designs were born and showcased, giving life to a home collection. 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. Andrea Parisio lives and works in Milan.
