Milan Direct is an Australian based company, with operations in Australia, UK and Europe.

The company, founded in 2006 by Dean Ramler and high school friend Ruslan Kogan pioneered[1] the concept of selling furniture purely through an online only channel. Ramler’s family has been making furniture in Australia for over 60 years[2], and it is this strong background in the furniture industry which led to the creation of Milan Direct.

In 2012, Milan Direct was awarded by Smart Company [3] as the Best Company Website in Australia.

Among other companies, Milan Direct has been selected to join Google's Trusted Store program [4]. Free for both retailers and consumers, this program seeks to provide more information about the operations from business in order to guarantee online shopping.

Milan Direct was recognised as a BRW Fast Starter in 2010[5], 2011[6], and a BRW Fast 100 in 2012[7].
