De Padova was founded in 1956, the year in which Maddalena and Fernando De Padova opened a small store on Via Montenapoleone in Milan, and decided to import Scandinavian furniture. For the first time, the design of Northern Europe had reached Italy: a revolution that would permanently change the way people live. In the decades to follow the company grew, producing – under license, at first – the finest American collection of furnishings for the home and office, under the trademark Herman Miller, designed by C. Eames, G. Nelson and A. Girard. De Padova then began to produce its own collection, thanks to collaboration with great internationally acclaimed designers. In over 50 years of activity De Padova has kept faith with its original philosophy: design as a tool to spread emotion. The De Padova collection comes from the inspiration of the great design classics, from the love of fine craftsmanship and objects of memory, from research combined with innovation. This is what makes the De Padova style so unique. Deplain.com is an official partner and authorized dealer De Padova.
