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.
