Floriano Quaia opens his first carpentry workshop: a small studio where furniture is made with the aim of lasting a lifetime.
Bernardo Quaia, son of Floriano, sets down the foundations of a company where the first pieces of decorative furniture would later be developed.
Francesco, Bernardo’s son, builds a factory and creates – using his surname – an actual brand. Together with his brother Floriano, he sets up Arredamenti Quaia.
Arredamenti Quaia participates in the Salone del Mobile, Milan for the very first time.
The accompanying burst of innovation marks a turning point for the company which sets its sights on ever broader horizons.
During the flurry of the Eighties, Francesco Quaia establishes the Oasis brand, branching out into the production of bathroom furniture which thereafter becomes part of the company offer.
The New Millennium
At the turn of the Millennium, an impetus of change, of fresh new ideas, sweeps through the company in the form of the next generation, Francesco’s three children: Francesca, Federica and Lorenzo.
The eldest, Francesca, is the first to work alongside her father in the business and, as assuming responsibility for the commercial direction of the company, is pivotal in steering it along the road to internationalisation.
2005 sees the setting up of the first international base for the company, in the city of Moscow. Warm and harmonious Italian spirit meets the essence of regal Russia and the two succeed in winning one another over.
Second daughter Federica, having specialised in the worldwide branding of luxury goods, takes over all aspects of image and communication within the company, thus assuming marketing and artistic control.
Third-born Lorenzo completes the transition to the fourth generation. Specialising in project research and development as well as highly technical products, he becomes head of the technical production division.
The Home line is completely revised and relaunched with the aim of offering, under the Oasis label, a complete and coordinated luxury interiors package inspired by the language of cosmopolitan and contemporary style.
2013 sees monobrand flagship showrooms opening in both London and Hong Kong.

The soul of a land
There’s only one place in Italy where the air can flow in from foreign lands: it is Friuli. And together with the wind, also history, style and thoughts come and go through this gateway.
From Trieste, by character, serious, intellectual and imperial – the wind carries with it the Mediterranean vibes, melodies and flavours, a timeless and ageless elegance.
From Venice, rich in priceless treasures, gleaming golden mosaics and suggestions from the Orient – the wind channels exotic spices, perfumes and warm hues, a refined exquisite style echoing thousands years of history.
the Italian style
The wind from the foreign lands then sweeps all across the Italian peninsula. It is the spirit bringing to life the refined and eclectic blending of different cultures, languages and foods which is known around the world as “Italian style”.
The company is a century-old family business characterised by courage, tradition and a strong identity.
It has market presence in more than 25 countries, the main ones being: Russia, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Switzerland, Belgium and the United States.
The Oasis production portfolio includes a wide range of furniture collections for the Home, the Bathroom and the Contract industry for the construction of projects for both residential and professional purposes.
