Heerenhuis’s motto is brazenly straightforward “We make tables, that’s what we do.” – well, we feel they do it very well. Heerenhuis creates unique high-quality furniture that will last a lifetime. From rough farm-like tables to sleek, dark furniture, the details in each piece are truly captivating. And the best part is, everything can be completely made to measure.
Although tables are a central part of their craft, you could say their Cargo chair has become somewhat of a signature item. We use it for almost any of our interior projects as it adds a rough elegance and we love a minimalistic design that is made to last. We incite you to discover all the brand has to offer in our online shop.
The Belgian design house and furniture workplace started their trade in Antwerp in 1978 as an antiques business before setting up their own line of furniture. This might be why they have a longstanding thing for aged and imperfect materials; like worn vegetable tanned leather, unlacquered welded iron and massive slabs of noble wood. Each piece is hand finished with oil, wax or varnish giving it a rich texture.
Run by Geert Legein and Louis van Haesebrouck, the company has managed to keep a low profile; shying away from interviews and the limelight. Heerenhuis is just simply set on making contemporary furniture that celebrates imperfection and really keeps the focus on the details. Their Basic line is an easy collection of ready-to-order furniture, but each piece you see can be completely made to measure too. And then there’s the Limited Editions, made from exotic materials such as Italian walnut, sequoia and even swamp poplar. For Heerenhuis, it’s all about using uncomplicated, non-perfect but quality materials.
