It was in 1966 when Marioni first began designing and manufacturing lighting, furnishing accessories, sofas, armchairs, chairs and furniture, all entirely handmade. Established as a small pottery workshop by its founder Paolo Marioni, in a few years it turned into a solid manufacturing company whose products increasingly won over large market shares in Italy and in the world.
Marioni started with ceramics as a basic material, over the years developing a comprehensive range of furnishing accessories, focussing on colour combinations, finishes and decorations. Objects closely linked to the creative aspect of designed details and to the manual skills of craftsmen. Today we offer our customers furniture, upholstery, lighting and accessories in three different collections: NOTORIOUS, exclusive and sophisticated - CONCEPT, in "transitional" style - CLASSIC, historically respectful of "Tuscany lifestyle", all strictly 100% made in Italy.
Our headquarters in Calenzano, a short distance from Florence, is where our modellers, decorators and artists work with great skill, combining modernity and tradition to create collections which continue to maintain their innate and unchanging functional and aesthetic value, time after time.
Today Marioni is a modern and dynamic company providing international customers with high-quality furnishings, working with the best architects, interior designers and contractors to achieve - according to Made in Italy values - the most exclusive and elegant furnishing solutions. The manufacturing heart is in Florence, where the art of creating works unique in their refinement and inspiration is rooted in the Renaissance. All the collections avoid large-scale mass production and can be customised in shape and size. The fifty years of history behind Marioni are a guarantee for unique furnishing projects, skilfully combining modern design, craftsmanship, the careful selection of raw materials and attention to detail, expressing Italian-style luxury at its best.
Production is organised on a "contract" basis, with a stock of semi-finished products always available for the careful and timely management of finishes which include glazes, decorations and coatings. With experience gained in more than 40 years and through the acknowledged ability and high professionalism of our workers, we are able to accommodate and actively support the inventiveness and creativity of architects, designers and artists in every field and at every stage: from the analysis of specific aspects to the optimisation of construction details.
Ceramics, glass, metal, wood and leather are only some of the materials which can be combined together to accomplish the most exclusive projects.
