The owner of Toschi Arredamenti, the historic showroom in Reggio Emilia, passed away after a short illness.

Owner of the historic Toschi Arredamenti shop in Reggio Emilia, Franco Bonini was the third-generation owner of the furniture design showroom, now a multi-store that narrates and showcases every detail of contract and residential design, from objects to kitchens, from living rooms to textiles.

The company was founded in 1946 on the initiative of Marino Toschi, a carpenter and cabinet-maker, who in the post-World War II years began to propose classic furniture to the city, also selecting Nordic design pieces, a courageous choice in the Italian province of the 1950s. At the end of the 1960s, Rina Toschi, the founder's daughter, began to collaborate with her father in the management of the company.

Over the next decade the store consolidated, until the early 1970s when Franco Bonini, grandson of the founder and now owner, and his wife Luciana joined the company. With Franco, the showroom, which has undergone extensions and restyling over the years, definitively took the path of design.

For Bonini, beauty, design and culture were important values. Values testified by the furniture and accessories displayed in his shop window. His passion and focus on design had led him to become a member of ADI (Association for Industrial Design).

From the first Cassina and Flos creations, to Scandinavian and northern European realities, the choices in product selection have always been synonymous with research and quality of product and design. In 1996 Toschi Arredamenti won the first edition of the 'Negozio ideale' award, promoted by the GdA group.
