Bring nature into your home with Artisan furniture. Wood is a beautiful and natural product that is inextricably linked to our lives and is the foundation of all Artisan products. Artisan’s masters believe in traditional handicrafts and have a love for wood, which provides a warm and natural atmosphere to your interior.
Traditional handicrafts and a love for wood
Artisan has a true love for wood and nature. Even though they use wood as the basis for all their products, it’s all well thought out. All Artisan products use solid wood from renewable sources. And during the manufacturing process, they use environmentally friendly materials such as vinyl-based glue, natural oils and wax.
The use of these natural products emphasises the wood’s structure, letting it ‘breathe’ naturally. The goal is to have a final product that is just as natural as where the wood came from. Artisan lets you bring nature into your home!
Artisan’s masters love wood and have the most important production tools on hand: real artisans’ hands. Artisan distinguishes itself in the manual production of high-quality furniture as true experts.
The story goes back to the traditional Bosnian woodworking shop, Ćostović, when Artisan produced furniture for Dutch and British designers. Since 2007, Artisan has been designing its own collections with regional designers. This way, the Bosnian brand provides great opportunities to designers at the start of their careers.

Natural drying process
Artisan works with many types of wood, such as walnut, cherry, oak, ash, and maple. Proper preparation is key and provides a solid foundation for the final quality. First, the wood must be dried. To prepare the wood for the drying process, it is treated with superheated steam to achieve an ideal colour with an accentuated texture that remains intact.
The wood is then dried naturally so that the conditions are identical to those in your home. Ventilated storage facilities that run on special software are used for drying wood. This process is carried out until the wood has reached the right moisture level.
A longer lifespan
Once the wood is ready to be processed, it is cut, cropped and transformed into the end product in a traditional manner. For the finishing work, only natural oils, waxes and varnishes are used. This type of finish on dried wood ensures a longer lifespan and preserves its natural colour and texture.
