Fernando and Maddalena De Padova began their business in the 1950s, importing Scandinavian furniture and objects and selling them at their store on via Montenapoleone in Milan.

Fernando and Maddalena De Padova began their business in the 1950s, importing Scandinavian furniture and objects and selling them at their store on via Montenapoleone in Milan.

Northern European design was not widely known in Italy at this time, and it is largely as a result of this pioneering work that De Padova quickly gained recognition as a leading source of furniture in the region.

In the 1960s De Padova obtained a licence from American furniture manufacturer Herman Miller and added to their range products by George Nelson and Ray and Charles Eames. Also to be seen at their Corso Venezia showroom in Milan were the designs of Rolf Heide, Ross Little, Herbert Hirche and Ingo Maurer.
