Paola Lenti was born in 1958 in Alessandria Italy, where she completed classical studies. She later moved to Milan and graduated from Milan's Polytecnico. In the early eighties she started working as an image coordinator and graphic designer for several events and fashion companies.

In 1994 she founded the company, Paola Lenti, located in Italy's leading furniture district Meda, near Milan. In a few years, the company has become an international reference point for textile innovation in the design world, and has been recognised for its dedication to research, experimentation and for its entrepreneurial dynamism. The singular approach to materials and forms and the original interpretation of colour combine to make Paola Lenti’s collections unique.

Paola Lenti have discovered new domestic landscapes, balanced and basic, based on opposites attract with simplicity and moderation: the past and the present, the outside and the inside, tradition and technology. Landscapes where coexist peacefully in metal and wood structures designed to withstand over time; modern and comfortable seats for the interior and new solutions for the exterior; elegant floral surfaces handmade crocheted carpets and refined products with hi-tech yarns.
