KELVIN GIORMANI is a line of products and brand name which is owned and marketed by Arredamenti Company Limited. The company was founded in 1999 in Hong Kong by Kelvin Ng and Jane Tong. It started off as a manufacturer, exporter and retailer of sofas. The sofa specialty retail store has begun to operate in Hong Kong since 1999 under the name of GIORMANI Livingroom Furniture Store. The concept of customizing every sofa for each customer has developed since the very beginning when the company was founded.
In 2003, Arredamenti Company Limited began to produce top quality genuine leather sofas for a renowned German sofa manufacturer, Weco Polstermobel GmbH +Co. KG. In 2004, Arredamenti continued to establish a similar kind of partnership with a high-end Italian sofa manufacturer, Cierre Imbottiti s.r.l. Expanding the partnership, in 2006, both European partners started to include some of Arredamenti’s in-house sofa designs in their second brands for the European market. During this period, we inherited product engineering and technical knowhow from both European partners which has a fundamental influence on KELVIN GIORMANI products today.
In January 2008, KELVIN GIORMANI was first-time launched at IMM Cologne International Furniture Fair through our European distributor. This also signified the end of the OEM and ODM partnership with our previous European partners when Arredamenti decided to go global with the in-house brand. In less than 10 years, KELVIN GIORMANI established brand dealerships in over 20 countries and successfully positioned the brand at the upscale market segment in every country. In 2011, The Chief Designer, Kelvin Ng, became the first Hong Kong designer who received the prestige Pinnacle Design Achievement Award, which is the most influential award for product design in the U.S. home furnishing market.
In 2016, KELVIN GIORMANI opened a mono-brand sofa specialty store for entering the market of Hong Kong, where the parent company’s home town is. It signifies the brand’s first entry to the upscale retail market in a wealthy international city. This new strategy has brought KELVIN GIORMANI closer to end consumers at the high-end market segment and has lifted up the brand’s development of bespoke sofas and services to the next level.
