STF also has a special approach towards production. The process of creating every piece of furniture is carefully supervised by our designers, who watch over every stage of production, starting from the first sketch on paper.
Furniture made with special care to meet the highest demands of our clients. Both functional and appealing, made to last and endure beautifully.
“The purpose of our brand is to promote Polish craft tradition, resurrect unique carpentry methods with the use of the technology available. In the construction of furniture we rely on classic carpentry combinations, i.e.
dovetail joints, finger joints, fork joints, housed joints, etc. We use traditional methods of finishing furniture, shellac polish, natural waxes. We show how to use this timeless knowledge drawn from the history of development of craft in our region in the contemporary design.”
