Gandia Blasco was born in Valencia in 1941, founded by the homonymous family. It dedicated the first part of its history to the production of fabrics and blankets. The real turning point in his activity came in the ‘80s with the management of the talented José Antonio Gandía-Blasco, who gave life first to a successful collection of design rugs and then move around in the outdoor furniture world.
The new company was born almost by chance: in the realization of his summer house of Ibiza, José realized the difficulties to find furnitures for outdoor environments on the market perfectly integrated with the architectural spaces. Progressively he became passionate about the design of furniture. The Na Xemena collection, signed by the architect Ramón Esteve, was born from this experience, before a long series that will bring the company to international success.
Today, Gandia Blasco’s outdoor catalog includes today all the essential products for living outdoor spaces in complete comfort: sofas, cribs, tables, chairs, tables and accessories of all kinds, including furnishings that are small architectures such as the sofa-gazebo model Pergolato Sofa or the swing Nao-Nao. Collections such as the Stack series by Borja Garcia and the Flat line by Mario Ruiz are already real classics of garden furniture.
The Gan brand was born in 2004 proposing itself as a continuation of the historic line of Gandia Blasco rugs. Gan rugs are made in India, hand-woven by expert craftsmen using natural fibers such as cotton, linen, silk, jute and wool. The artistic direction of the brand is in the hands of Mapi Millet, according to whose philosophy a carpet must not only be a complement to an environment, but must contribute itself to shaping an architecture. This is why the Gan rugs do not leave indifferent: their colorful style immediately strikes the eye and the mind.
