Our story began with Joost Baakman’s passion for antiques that drove his entire life and led him to building a successful business in Holland. In 1995, just after Romania became a market economy, he teamed up with his younger cousin Gijsbert Huijink, an economist with a special love for Eastern Europe. Together they started the production of furniture, upholstery and decorative articles in Romania. Our latest step has been to import special products from colleague producers around the world. These are selected by Trudy Boos, an artist at heart and a lover of natural materials, beautiful colors and crafts since her teens.
