Euro Contemporary Collection Featuring Calligaris

Calligaris Esteo Table

Euro Contemporary. Italian Smart Design. What is it?

Calligaris’s Italian Smart Design is part of our Euro Contemporary Collection. Their style is a perfect example of what Euro-Contemporary is all about. We’re very excited to bring Calligaris¬†furniture to BY DESIGN¬†and our customers in Des Moines and Iowa. But, exactly what do they mean by that phrase? We’re going to let our partners at Calligaris speak for themselves:

Smart is harmony between technique and aesthetics, between reason and emotion, because each Calligaris piece encompasses the know-how of our experienced designers and our creativity applied to contemporary living. – Calligaris


Simplicity becomes an added value which satisfies the desire to play with the volumes, the combinations, the colourings to create spaces that avoid a mass-produced feel and narrate the personality of those who inhabit them. – Calligaris


Smart is knowing how to live, the expression of a new sensibility, which prefers to choose what is right for ourselves and for our sensibilities without feeling forced either to conform or to to stand out. It is a knowing how to live that is reflected in everyday things, even small ones, and that helps us feel our best. – Calligaris


Expressing our own personality, recounting who we really are is a natural aspiration that finds in the home, in the spaces we live in, its pride of place. The home is the visible container of our tastes, passions, foibles; it is a place that represents us and therefore one in continuous transformation. – Calligaris

Living room, dining room and bedroom furniture plus accessories and accents. This is a complete Euro-Contemporary look with fabulous Italian design in every single item. We’re excited to showcase it on BY DESIGN’S floor. Please come in!
