Why do we create handcrafted upholstered furniture year after year?  A tireless quest for beauty, inside and out. We find beauty in simple, elegant lines, in our commitment to comfort and quality, and to the world around us. Because we believe beauty endures- if your heart is in it.

The story of our company is directly tied to that of its founder, Gino Romano, and his wife Maria. Gino was born in Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1956 at age 16. He had some carpentry skills and found a job in a frame shop where he learned the craft of upholstery. It was not long before Gino’s entrepreneurial nature drove him to start a business of his own.

Although the company and styles may have evolved with the times, the fundamental know-how and craftsmanship that defines a Romano sofa remain the same as when the company was founded – our methods are tried and true, and the core values of the company have not changed.

To this day Romano is still dedicated to doing just one thing: manufacturing beautiful contemporary upholstered furniture with simple, elegant lines, and exceptional comfort.
