Our company

Inspired by nature, since 1954

Carlo Civera is a leader in Italy/Europe for maintenance-free indoor and outdoor green area furnishings. Our mission is to design and create green areas with a modern, always new, and personalized design. Over the years, we have developed numerous projects for private clients, Italian and international companies such as Dior, Chiara Ferragni, The Blonde Salad, Boggi, Fiorella Rubino, GHD Italia, and Boots. We have also expanded our presence into new markets, completing projects in Dubai, Monte Carlo, Spain, and Bulgaria. We consider “today” as a new chapter in a long story of quality, innovation, and excellent work. We always seek new paths to grow because the impossible is not a limit but a challenge.

1954 - 1980

In January 1954, Carlo Civera, along with his wife Maria, opened a small workshop in Contrada Santa Croce, Brescia, for the artisanal production of artificial and semi-natural wooden plants. The rapid expansion led them to purchase the adjacent shop, transforming it into a high-class showroom in less than a year.
This is how the story of Carlo Civera begins, a company that has always passionately embraced the challenge of continuously improving every aspect of its business.

1980 - 1990

The '80s represent an important milestone. Carlo Civera gained corporate and financial stability to specialize in a sector still unknown to many, refining production techniques and the quality of materials used to create top-quality artificial and semi-natural plants.
During these years, Carlo is also supported by the artistic skills of his daughter, Tiziana. The company continues its expansion, securing significant contracts in the fashion, cinema, hospitality, and banking sectors. In 1985, Carlo Civera expanded its offerings by introducing artificial flowers made with innovative materials for that time. Thanks to this innovation, the company gains recognition in the field of Floral Design as well.


Due to the continuous growth, in 1990 the building at Via dei Mille 20D in Brescia is renovated, and the location in Contrada Santa Croce is closed, being too small for the sales volumes at that time. Carlo Civera now boasts a space of approximately 1000 square meters, housing a workshop equipped with the latest technologies, a high-class showroom, and executive offices. This expansion increases the company's reputation not only in Brescia and its province but also throughout northern Italy.
Over the years, Carlo Civera has been receiving significant contracts from clients such as Banca d'Italia, Frabosk, and INA Assitalia. These clients increasingly demand furniture with artificial green areas requiring zero maintenance for their headquarters and offices.

2000 - 2008

Over the years, Carlo Civera has consistently explored new avenues to incorporate nature into man-made masonry spaces. From this 'green' philosophy emerged in 2005 the idea of using natural preserved lichen to create indoor green walls and maintenance-free vegetal artworks.
Thanks to an innovative process that replaces the sap with a completely biodegradable, non-toxic product, the vegetal artworks or stabilized lichen walls created by Carlo Civera maintain their beauty and lushness for over 8 years.

2009 - 2018

Thanks to the experience accumulated over 50 years in the field, in 2009 Carlo Civera introduced into the market their own vertical gardens made with the same artificial plants that made the company famous. This innovation significantly expanded the brand's visibility, establishing Carlo Civera as the go-to reference for designers and architects in green space furnishings.
In 2010, the company began its expansion abroad, managing significant contracts.

2019 - 2020

The evolution of preserved lichen in its artificial version. In 2019, Carlo Civera launched a revolutionary product in the industry to meet the needs of many designers and architects. Our artificial lichen is made from top-quality synthetic materials that faithfully replicate the nuances and softness typical of natural lichen.

2021 - 2022

In 2021, we introduced our new company tagline, "Inspired by nature since 1954". In the same year, Carlo Civera launched an innovative concept of aerial vegetal plants, entirely designed and produced by our team.
This new product was created to meet the needs of the most ambitious designers and architects. Thanks to integrated lighting, our aerial vegetal compositions can be used to create relaxing green spaces or as an additional source of illumination.

2023 - Oggi

Carlo Civera is expanding into new markets by undertaking projects in Dubai, Monte Carlo, Monaco, and Bulgaria. 2023 is a very important year, as in January, the complete renovation of the showroom at Via dei Mille 20D in Brescia begins, along with the offices. Thanks to the collaboration with Flos, Marazzi, and other significant brands in the furnishing sector, a unique, elegant, modern, and technological space has been created, where clients and professionals can unleash their creativity.
On this occasion, Carlo Civera launches a highly scenic solution: artificial flower walls.
We consider "today" as a new chapter in a long story of quality, innovation, and excellent work. We always seek new paths to grow because impossibility is not a limit but a challenge.

Our showroom

A space where the client or professionals can unleash their creativity

We design your maintenance-free
green spaces

Carlo Civera delivers turnkey solutions, commonly known as “contract” projects, which go beyond mere design and placement of furnishings within a space, considering the environment in its comprehensive vision. The wide range of services provides the client with significant time savings, as they no longer need to deal with different individuals but with a single entity capable of designing and executing their idea in every detail.


Designing and creating something requires attention. The use of hands combined with craftsmanship allows the creation of objects of unparalleled beauty. Carlo Civera has leveraged their own workshop to internally produce not only semi-natural plants but also all the elements necessary for their projects. We are capable, for instance, of crafting paintings, frames, and panels necessary to create installations of lichen (available in 15 colors for both indoor and outdoor settings) and unique, dramatic artificial vertical gardens.
