Designing the Future: Our Furniture Legacy
Economist Georgios Ntafis opened the first facility for crafting upholstered furniture in the heart of Athens, where he created a collection of sofas adorned with intricate wooden elements, in line with the spirit of the era.
The first large-scale factory was inaugurated in the historic industrial heart of Piraeus, accompanied by a simultaneous vertical integration of the production of internal wooden frameworks.
Versatile sofa designs are introduced into the production line, pioneering innovations that challenged the morphological standards of the era, crafted by the young and talented architect Dimitris Sfyris.
The company continues to grow and inaugurates its second factory in the western suburbs of Attica.
The company relocates to two new, modernized factories in the western suburbs of Attica, enabling its expansion into new furniture market segments.
