Manual work and new technology
We don’t just specialise in woodwork in our workshops, but also in upholstery. When developing a product, we focus on making it as comfortable as possible, for example by adding pocket springs. During the manufacturing process, both experienced human hands and new technologies have a chance to shine. For example, we use a cutter for leathers and upholstery materials that help us to cut accurately, utilise them efficiently and eliminate waste.
Some of the models we offer can combine several upholstery materials in one product, or have the option of decorated seams and colourful threads. However, we can take customisation even further. We are happy to accommodate any requests arising from the client’s special requirements or the needs of the relevant interior. We have our own production process, which means that we can also upholster products in the client’s choice of fabric, after technical testing. Our experienced upholsterers work with any type of material that you can send to us or that we can buy for you.Take a look at the other customisation options we have available
