Renzo Frau founded Poltrona Frau in Turin in 1912. In 1962, after the acquisition by the Nazareno Gabrielli group, the company moved to Tolentino in the Marche region. Under the lead of President Franco Moschini the company cooperates with the most famous Italian and international architects and designers.
In 2004, Poltrona Frau is acquired by Charme Investments, which englobes in its brand other historical and prestigious companies like Cappellini, and in 2005 also Cassina. This is the founding year of Poltrona Frau Group, a new point of reference in the luxury furniture industry.
In 2014, the American group Haworth is the new majority shareholder of Poltrona Frau Group, widening their undisputed leadership on a worldwide basis.
