Company

MERIDIANI was born out of a simple yet passionate idea of Laura Ferraro Crosti: to design a home collection able to interpret classic themes with contemporary flair, products which can stand the test of time and convey a sophisticated yet relaxed elegance.

The first collection saw the light in 1996 thanks to the efforts and enthusiasm of Laura and Andrea Parisio - designer and art director of the brand - after months of research, analysis and comparisons, taking advantage of a thirty year experience gained with other projects, and of the family’s industrial facilities, located in Brianza, an area traditionally dedicated to the manufacture of high quality furniture.

On October 4th 1996 the first store was opened in downtown Milan and four years later the brand was to be officially introduced to an international clientele. Over the years Valeria, daughter of Laura and Renato Crosti, owner of the company, has joined the staff, as a sign of family continuity. An ability to successfully bring together efficient production and quality, a constant attention to customer service, together with a precise identity, have been the key to the worldwide success of the collection and of its brand.

Collections
HOME & OPEN AIR: 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.
