The world as a whole is the marketplace addressed by Il Loft, the company that Giorgio Saporiti created in 1994 after decades spent working as co-owner and Art Director of Saporiti Italia and after 15 years of collaborations with Ottavio Missoni in the development of stages for catwalks and textile-related products such as carpets and tapestries.
The success that this brand has been able to enjoy stems directly from the guarantee of quality that it is able to provide to its audience through the design, development and production of tailored and rigorously made in Italy solutions.
All furniture, complements and decors by Il Loft are first born into Giorgio Saporiti’s creative mind and are developed and produced in his Gallarate factory, West of Milan. Here, a team of specialized craftsmen works wood, steel, plastics. Here, skilled fabric experts weave, color, couple fabrics and cover the polyurethane or Dacron padded seats. And it is again here that, after the Maestro has completed the design phase, teams of engineers and interior designers leave heading for the States, Russia, the Middle East and the many locations in Europe in which enlightened customers have requested that very particular living concept – Il Loft branded – that has made the company well known around the world.
The real passion and love for color that has always characterized Giorgio Saporiti’s work, together with the essential lines of his design and with the guarantee of a 100% Made in Italy craft-based production make Il Loft the perfect herald of Italian design around the world.

“Copeland Furniture’s furniture manufacture includes a strong commitment to the principles of sustainability, durability and quality construction. This approach is more and more rare in American manufacturing, although the environmental issues of our times beg for more companies to think about the ramifications of how and what they manufacture. Copeland is a leader in demonstrating how a strong value system coupled with quality design and manufacturing can make a positive impact for this generation and those that will follow.” — Professor Rosanne Somerson – Rhode Island School of Design, Furniture Design.

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” ― Coco Chanel
Every year the hottest trends in both fashion and interior design are introduced first to commercial buyers and then to the consumers who will personally use them. Historically, fashion trends have always come first and then influenced furniture designs, but now many of the lines between the two are blurring due to tighter timelines. The romance between fashion and furniture continues today, but sometimes in new and unexpected ways.
