Porada, from 1948

Everything ‘s born from the love of the wood. The solid wood, worked with the craftsmanship of those who know how to turn a log into a piece of artwork. Porada has its origin from this passion. It was established in 1968 by Luigi Allievi with the aim of expanding the production of chairs, started in 1948.

Excellence

With the support of his sons, who became promoters, as well as him, of a Company that makes quality and professionalism its own bases. Excellent quality and considerable experience in the wood manufacturing shortly gave the Company a solid and well-defined identity, which nowadays express itself in refined products that contribute to design a domestic environment, where the everyday living needs are met.

Equilibrium

The key to achieve renown within an international audience consists of its ability to find the right balance between form and function in every objet, together with an elegant and evolved taste, that is at the same time sober and essential for items made to last in time. A work that in half a century has managed to turn the founder’s dream into reality.

Mission

The main strength of Porada is also, and most important, something else. Something that has nothing to do with the quality of the materials or cutting-edge machinery. It’s the human factor. They’re people who for years have become part of this family, who treat products as they would do with something of their own, putting all their care and passion in their daily work.

Showroom

Porada is proud to announce the opening of its brand new showrooms. An area of 700 square meters all dedicated to the Porada world. You’ll find two sections: the contract one where we show hotel rooms and halls, dining and breakfast areas. And the house section presents the “cult” pieces from the past collections.
The finishes chosen in terms of wood are canaletta walnut and wengè stained, the textiles are in pastel colors, from light blue to grey, the same colors used for the lacquered items. Elegant and sophisticated spaces in a perfect Porada Style!
