Our History

80 YEARS OF WORK, COMMITMENT AND DEDICATION

Enrico Secchi, the son of a farmer, was born.

As an apprentice in a carpenter’s workshop, he learned the tricks of the trade. Then, together with his three brothers, he decided to start an extra activity, by working on commissions.

The four Secchi brothers decided to start their own business by setting up company Fratelli Secchi snc. They had no financial resources to buy essential machinery, so they rented by the hour those made available by their hometown. Originally, they worked on dining rooms and dinettes (what we currently call ‘kitchen’) for customers living in the suburbs of Milan.

The economic scenario changed as well as furniture selling. The first furniture stores opened, and direct selling began. Thanks to the full cycle processing plants, the standard production of bedrooms, modern and classing living rooms began to take hold.

Enrico Secchi decided to go on with his business, not with his brothers anymore, but with his own family. He created company Mobilificio Secchi snc, where his five sons currently work.

The first mono-brand industrial corporations were born, and several companies converted from manufacturers to traders. Secchi Enrico decided not to produce for distributions anymore, but to produce for other companies. He founded current company Formes snc that produces on behalf of third parties. As there were no more commercial costs to be borne, the company has decided to invest their economic resources in new manufacturing plants and in the research for technological innovations.

A new productions site opened. It is currently in expansion.

Forme’s gets into the Contract business.

Today Formes snc has decided to start a new adventure. Selling directly to the end-user, cutting all costs for intermediaries, exhibitions, and events. The target is to offer the market top design products, affordable for everyone.
