Since 1926 – Mantellassi’s Synthesis of Tradition and Evolving Design.
When Macario Mantellassi founded the Mantellassi furniture company in Tuscany in 1926, he had a vision of bringing tradition forward to synthesize with the evolving aesthetics of a fresh, new age.
In the days of flappers and Art Deco, the company established itself as a furniture manufacturer and designer which believed in design as an expression of individual lifestyles.
In the enduring spirit of the Italian love of all things beautiful, Mantellassi furniture’s mission is to bring its international customers a unique vision of furnishings. The ideal is to express the essence, aura and soul of the spaces graced by their work, redefining the role of the inanimate as a vibrant influence on our lives.
Ahead of its time.
Master upholsterer Macario Mantellassi wasn’t alone in his young enterprise. He was joined by his son, Remo and wife, Elisa.
It was Elisa who provided the financial underpinnings of the company, moving it forward by developing it as a design and business force. Mantellassi is a pioneer in this respect, with Elisa’s example continuing to exert influence, placing Italian women in the vanguard of the nation’s furniture design innovators.
Design at the highest level.
Mantellassi 1926 collaborates with international practitioners of high level design. This creates a unique synergy of expression, giving birth to thoughtful, inspirationally-conceived furniture which speaks to the homes and commercial interests it’s created for.
Heritage meets innovation at Mantellassi 1926. This dynamic fusion of visions results in furnishings of peerless distinction and uncompromising quality, developed over 90 years.
