Hugues Revuelta is an autodidact designer who originates from France. His passion for naturalness and organic materials is his source for inspiration and creativity. When it comes to designing, he aims to balance between being of nature whilst still expressing a modern taste.

Our designs are classy yet playful and innovative, made to stand the tests of time and changing trends. A close attention to details enhances the finest lines and curves. At the heart of our design philosophy, however, lies the understanding that flawless proportions uphold the balance between esthetics and comfort. In other words, we place equal emphasis on esthetics and comfort because we know that you do too.
Our furniture is eclectic, which means we derive our inspiration from nature through life and modern art, from the fine lines of Scandinavian minimalism through French and Italian culture and tradition to the natural understatements of Japanese aesthetics.
Using natural materials, we allow divine interventions to ultimately define our designs. Each piece holds a unique natural fingerprint. No two pieces look the same. The end result is in the hands of nature.
The carpenters and craftsmen and women are the unsung heroes of our time, or so we believe. Working with solid wood, our craft people know the value of noble materials, and treat it with the greatest respect.
Karpenter furniture represents a merge between the intelligence of ancient carpentry and the precision of modern technology. Solid wood-on-wood joinery that holds the secret to the durability of our products is perfectly fitted by Italian precision machinery. Behind the machines are experienced craftspeople, who assemble each piece by hand, and unite wood with leathers, fabrics and metals.
We have learned from the best, our forefathers, who developed science of carpentry that resulted in wooden structures that lasted for thousands of years. The key to durability is found in sturdy, unbreakable connections. Wood-on-wood joinery, such as dovetails, mortises and tenons, are sculpted and fitted perfectly to create an exceptional stability and quality.
Joints are enforced by the highest quality glue, which is selected for its low impact on the environment. Screws and bolts are turned into playful design details.
High quality machines bring hairline precision to the production. Modern technology gives us the advantage of exact measurements and perfectly fitted pieces. However, our machines are not programmed for mass production. Our experienced crafts people are involved at every stage to ensure superior quality.
