Salda is a company story, a family story: the Besana family who made passion their raison d’etre, their quality a value, their manufacturing expertise turned into a precious heritage to be preserved, shared and enriched over time with inventiveness and elegance.
Salda’s story begins in the early nineteenth century when Arcangelo Besana and his wife, who had long been decorators for Austria’s royal family, opened an artisanal workshop dedicated to the production of furnishings and accessories for the great residences of the French nobility.
In just a few years Salda grew to become one of the major furniture companies in Italy: its factory was one of the largest of the time.
With the outbreak of the First World War, all production activities were interrupted, however, Salda had the spirit and the strength to adapt and reinvent, starting a production of propellers and wings for warplanes.
After the war, production of furniture resumed with the same passion and craftsmanship, values handed down from generation to generation, today Marco and Elisa Besana manage Salda under the precious guidance of their father Umberto.
