Who We Are
Established in 1961 by Oreste Jannelli with his wife and cousins, Jannelli & Volpi will celebrate their first 50 years on 13th May 2011. The Italian market leader in wallpaper and furnishing fabrics, we maintain our position through our ability to create products of the highest standards in style and quality.
2006 was a significant year for the company both with the start of the construction of a new manufacturing plant at Sirpi (part of the Jannelli & Volpi group of companies), and the completion of the extensive refurbishment of the Milan headquarters at Via Melzo 7, participation in the first events of the ‘Fuori Salone’ season, becoming known as a major wallpaper showroom, developing the JV Concept Store of Jannelli & Volpi, and becoming known as a destination for events and cultural initiatives dedicated to decor and which, at the end of 2010 was replicated in Istanbul.
In this same year (2006) Jannelli & Volpi presented to the wallcoverings world a new concept known as ‘Wallpaper on Demand’, making it possible through WonD to create unique wallcoverings in any required dimensions.
In January we launched, at Maison & Objet, the JV Italian Design brand which comprised wallcovering collections for international markets and specifically targeted at the contract market. In April of that year we launched the first in a series of collections under the brand ‘Marimekko wallcovering by Sirpi’ (manufactured by part of the Jannelli & Volpi Group under license) which Jannelli & Volpi distributes in Italy and which SIRPI distributes abroad, and which will be further developed each year.
At the beginning of 2010 the JV Contract division opened, which remains a core business area of the Company.
