De Padova is an Italian brand that has co-written the history of design made in Italy. The company is based in Vimodrone. Its array of products covers everything from sofas and accessories to home decoration, from bookcasses and cabinets to office furnishings. De Padova was founded in 1956, when Maddalena and Fernando De Padova opened a small shop in via Montenapoleone - Milan, selling imported Scandinavian furniture. The company started manufaturing home and office furniture under license. Later it liaised with some of the great names in the world of interior design, like Vico Magistretti, Achille Castiglioni and Dieter Rams, and launched its first own collections. Thanks to the success of these collaborations De Padova managed to open a most influential showroom on Corso Venezia, Milan. Since the 1960s the numerous showcases for their part have become the stepping stone for many emerging designers like Ingo Maurer. But they hold also the entire De Padova collection which always has been characterized by its simplicity and its sober lines. The company's efforts and virtues were crowned in 2003 when Maddalena De Padova was awarded with the prestigious Compasso d’Oro for her lifetime achievements.

Perfect, harmonious proportions and a feeling of understated luxury: these are the distinguishing features of Living Divani, the dynamic and vibrant family-owned company, that has made its trademark of upholstery. Since the early 1970s, the company has followed a clear path, maintaining an intensive dialogue with the contemporary world and becoming one of the landmarks in the design landscape. Strategic is the alliance with Piero Lissoni: since 1988 he has led the firm’s unique style in his dual role as art director and designer. Living Divani collaborates with personalities such as Shiro Kuramata, Francesco Rota, Arik Levy, Claesson Koivisto Rune, Junya Ishigami, Harry&Camila, Nathan Yong, who all share the company’s style and approach to design. Over the years Living Divani has developed a vast and varied offer in a gradual process of creation of a complete living environment, which revolves around the upholstery system, with its subtle shapes and proportions, to ombine with characterful complements - seats, armchairs, beds,tables, bookcases and carpets and an outdoor collection - that will suit and define any setting, from the essential and rigorous to the multifarious and eclectic décor. Important acknowledgement of the path of excellence of Living Divani is its entry in 2012 in Altagamma, the foundation that gathers Italian companies of international repute, which operate at the top end of the market, which express the culture and the Italian style in the management business and the product and that are characterized by innovation, quality, service, design and prestige.
