Hugo,

handcrafted furniture.

Wood is the basic element in all my furniture. Because wood is endlessly versatile. You can see what I mean in my shop. You can feel it and smell it: wood’s got character.

The origin of wood tells all

One forest is different from the next, and a different climate can make all the difference to the growth of two of the same species of tree. Water, fire and time: they all leave their trace. And that contributes to the story that wood tells.

I look for wood in any location. In national and international forests, but also in your backyard. Your furniture will tell your own personal story, so maybe I can even use your old, furniture to make new furniture. A worn out piece of furniture can live on for many generations in a new piece.

Picking the pieces

When the wood is gathered, we look to see what’s useful. There are planks, pieces and stumps. What will be the basis of your furniture?

Handcraft

I get to work. How can I shape the wood?

The tools I use are the tools that were left behind by my grandfather. He was a carpenter and made furniture. His authentic style still fascinates and inspires me.

A tree in the forest becomes furniture in your daily life.  When your new furniture is ready there’s cause for celebration. The story continues.
