Fine Italian Craftsmanship


SINCE 1948

Before it was known as Porada, this iconic brand was first a manufacturer of wooden chairs, introduced in 1948 by Luigi Allievi. It later underwent a name change when Allievi's sons joined the company in 1968, and the business started producing a wider selection of furniture.


An important aspect in each of Porada’s designs is balance. The brand has achieved international success by pursuing the perfect combination of form and function. Not only do Porada’s designs look good, but they also perform exceptionally well and can last a lifetime.


Porada is built upon a love for solid wood, and an appreciation for the artistry involved in creating beautiful furniture out of raw timber. This is what originally established Porada as a home for expert craftspeople, but the business has since expanded its designs to include other materials, such as glass, metal and marble.



The people behind Porada are just as valuable as the materials and tools that go into the production process. Every single member of staff contributes to the company’s mission and forms part of the family – a family which works with the same level of dedication that Luigi Allievi did when he founded the company.
