Production And Originals “New From Old”
The design lovers have not fortunately lost hope for the pieces of old furniture and they tried to give a new life to them. The main idea is usually to save the old furniture, the feeling of necessity to return the refinement to the furniture, which has been long forgotten in attics, barns and basements.
“This is our goal. We want to give a new body to the forgotten soul of the furniture, to let it impress again; in a different context, in a modern form,” Robert Dvorak from the designer brand Lukas & Robertson says. They use the traditional work techniques and the classical and modern materials to repair the furniture. They give a colour finish to the wood and complement it with leather, fur and sculptural elements. The result is always an original piece noticeable in every interior.
