Lapalma's success has been achieved step by step throughout the years. No overnight success stories here - just hard work and passion in equal measure. For thirty years, the company has shown talent, tenacity, know-how and above all inexhaustible enthusiasm, expertly combining metal with wood, leather and fabrics to create timeless pieces of furniture with clean fluid lines. The company's story begins in the 1980s, when founders the Marcato brothers decided to go into business on their own. Their initial idea developed rapidly and Lapalma was established soon after, showing from the outset a preference for natural, recyclable materials. Following investments in machinery, Lapalma took advantage of the availability of new materials to develop a wide range of products for the contract market, which quickly demonstrated the brand's appeal, attracting buyers on major projects worldwide for hotels, shops, museums and airports.
