Main Services

Furniture Production

We are offering a variety of products depending on the clients needs. Our main clients are businesses; bars, restaurants and offices.

Accessories

When we take an interior our main purpose is to make it good looking. What we provide are even accessories from the lightning until the most small and particular element.

Interior Design

Architecture is a new profession in Albania, and people don't want to pay for that service. Our mission is even to make people understand that the perfect solution you need to hire an architect.

Why us

 

Why innovative?

We are the first company in Albania working in reclaimed wood especially pallets and transforming them in real furnitures. Grain patterns, knots and nail holes gives to our furnitures a beautiful antique style.

Why creative?

We create our own designs for our furnitures... We also design objects using jars, old cars parts, rags and a lot more...

Why Ecological?

We do not cut trees to make our furnitures. The small pieces of wood which remains we create other objects as small cars, aeroplanes, ships, earings and more.

Why Social?

Employing 12 people, mostly pensioners, orphans, marginalized people and immigrants. Prices are low so anyone can buy our products, since we know that Economical Situation in Albania is not so good or very low in front of other countries in Balkan Peninsula or Europe!

WHAT IS UPCYCLE?

Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value.

Upcycling is Green!

Plain and simple, upcycling makes a positive impact on the environment. When you upcycle, you remove items from the global garbage stream. Upcycling only requires your own creativity and elbow grease, no energy spent!

What do we Upcycle?

Just about anything: Wooden pallets, Military bullet wood boxes, wine bottles, cans, newspapers, tires, you name it. If we no longer have a use for it, we upcycle it!
