Please join us on a journey to se how a piece of furniture goes through a “Twist of History”, and becomes a unique, handmade piece, just for you!
Stage. One | Aquire
Finding the object is sometimes a challenge! We seek at auctions, antique dealers, private homes etc. Some objects are hundreds of years old, some a bit younger, but the most important is not the age or style, rather that the piece is of good quality craftmanship and has a touch of love and soul.
Stage. Two | Inspect
Our skilled upholsterers go through the object thoroughly. They take it apart bit by bit, examens materials and makes measurements for the upcoming fabrics order. This is a part were you can learn alot about the history of the handmade piece, and as some people say, “history is important for the future!”
Stage. Three | Woodwork
Every now and then, even a good quality handmade piece of furniture needs additional carpenting which isn´t surprising considering hundreds of years of use! Fortunately we have a highly qualified cabinet-maker taking care of this with the same passion as when the handmade piece was brought to life once upon a time.
Stage. Four | Design
A turning point of our journey. We love the creative process of giving a piece of furniture a totally new expression! This is a question about combining colours, materials and fabrics in an interesting way, aswell as choosing good quality upholstery fabrics. A quality guideline is that furniture should be upholstered with fabrics with atleast 20 000 martindale (martindale is a measure of how durable a fabric is, ie how much wear it can tolerate).
