Mission

Our mission is to provide beautiful, responsibly made furniture that 

benefits both the community in which it is made and in which it is 

cherished. From working with our Indonesia-based artisans who handcraft the individual pieces, to our valued customers who enjoy them at a 

reasonable price, we are committed to providing designs tailored to 

changing needs, with logistic service.

 

Community-focused

We are passionate about the transfer of artisan skills from generations and the recognition and respect of the brands whose products we produce, to create a supportive ecosystem. 

 

On-trend

We use an international approach to accommodate our customers’ passion for interior style, constantly developing our furniture and soft furnishings to keep up with the trend.

 

Logistic service

With the help of our long term forwarder partners, we provide services from ex-work to door-to-door with assistance on custom clearance and inland delivery.

Philosophy

As the second generation of a family that has designed and created furniture for more than 35 years, we care deeply about continuing that work. Like our predecessors before us, we are passionate about furniture that supports people and places. We set our production base in Indonesia and often meet with the furniture makers to ensure their safety and health because to us that’s the most important thing.

 

We choose factories that empower local communities through reforestation initiatives and related education programs. As a commitment to supporting communities and local heritage, our partners largely use handcraftsmanship, ensuring that skills continue to be passed down to young carpenters for their professional development. And, by promoting select brands, we aim to help businesses thrive with passion and receive recognition.
