MATERIALS
Karpenter furniture combines different noble and natural materials sourced from environmentally sustainable suppliers. We love warm, uninterrupted wooden surfaces, but we also enjoy playing with mixed materials that in combination create a whole greater than its parts. The materials we use breathe soul into a piece of furniture. Reclaimed wood and recycled metals add history. Colors and textures are inherent to the mediums we work with, and its characteristics must be incorporated into the design of every piece. The nature of a specific material has the potential to take over the creative process and redefine our ideas. This is especially wonderful when working with solid wood that gives every piece unique patterns, no two the same.

Leather

In collaboration with a small family tannery, we have developed the finest saddle leather from cattle to adorn some of our furniture. The tannery’s craftsmen and women study the behavior of leather, and understand how to enhance its natural beauty and quality. The leather is washed and colored in large teak centrifugal barrels, then dried before placed in pressing machines
Finally, each piece is in manually stretched to maintain the natural softness and elasticity of the material.

RECYCLED METAL

We have added elements of metal to some of our collections. This gives the furniture a contemporary, urban feel. The metal on wood combination stretches the imagination, and serves as a reminder of the timeless interaction between culture and nature. The ferrous metal we use is recycled from old cars, bridges and old buildings
Reuse of material brings history and soul to the furniture. It is also more environmentally sustainable.
