It all began almost 60 years ago. A small workshop in Puglia has grown to become a large company that now exports worldwide. In 1959 Pasquale Natuzzi opens his first workshop in Puglia. This is where his first sofas are made entirely by hand. In the 70's the workshop becomes an incubator of Made in Italy excellence. New employees and artisans join the team. New collections are created. In the 80's the Natuzzi style is born: colored leather sofas featuring an enveloping design and unparalleled comfort. Consumers, from Puglia to the US, love his innovation. In the 90's the company is listed on Wall Street. The collections now include furniture, complements and accessories: it is the beginning of Natuzzi's total living concept. In 2000 new stores open in New York, Dubai, New Delhi, Beijing, Sao Paulo, Sydney and London. Natuzzi starts important partnerships with internationally renowed designers. Today Natuzzi is one of the best known names in the global furniture industry. Natuzzi products are distributed through stores in Italy, Europe, USA, China, Japan, Taiwan, Russia, India, United Arab Emirates, Australia, Brazil and Mexico.
