Calligaris Visit: Day One
Monday, 31 October 2016
At Lime we enjoy making every effort to expand our product knowledge so that we are thoroughly equipped to advise you on the brands we offer.
Earlier this month our sales team were very excited to have the opportunity to spend two days in the Calligaris showroom and factory in Italy. As a brand that radiates creativity visiting the heart of production offered direct insight into Calligaris' new 2016 collection.
Following an early morning flight, our team joined the fabulous Calligaris team and day one consisted of a unique tour of the main factory and the chance to trial a wide range of new Calligaris sofas and chairs. Keen to road test new designs the team eagerly slumped into unique pieces such as the curvaceously formed Sweet Sofa, announcing it was much firmer than they had anticipated and offering comparisons between the Glammy and Danny sofas, both of which offer similar seat pads with varying leg options.

Instantly impressed by the comfort of its domed structure the Igloo Chair has now became a keen favourite at Lime and is surprisingly comparable to the Venus Chair that consists of a very similar form yet with a slightly more opulent feel.
Learning about innovative mechanisms are a keen fascination for us, Marco from the Calligaris team eagerly demonstrated how to effectively utilise the movement of a range of extending tables. On this occasion the Eclisse proved to be a show stopper for our team. Featuring a built in 'One Finger Mechanism' with a feature base that remains central, should you be seeking a table that extends with absolute ease.
