Craftsmanship, tradition & enduring value still matter

Craftsmanship. Tradition. Enduring value.

In a time when the latest electronic gadget comes out every few months, destined to last only a few years, these words – and the meaning behind them – tend to get lost in the noise.

When it comes to fine furniture, we believe they are as important as ever. At Mafi International, our key focus has been designer rugs for the past 20 years. Yet we understand that – while vital to exceptional interior design – beautiful rugs are primarily the foundation on which we create our living space.

Think about the important functions our furniture fulfills:

  • The tables around which our families gather to celebrate and regroup while enjoying a meal together
  • The sofa and the chairs where we can quietly relax or engage in animated conversations
  • The bedroom furniture that makes up our retreat after a long day
  • The credenza, curio, or the accent table that contain our books, art, and precious memorabilia.

Mafi International | Stickley showroom at Seattle Design CenterWe encourage you to choose carefully when shopping for the furniture that will play such prominent role in your personal comfort – even, do I dare to say, in the comfort of generations to come. Designing with intention includes asking: Who will be using this furniture? How will it be used?  Will it enhance the atmosphere I seek to create?

In appreciation of American craftsmanship, tradition, and lasting value, we are proud to partner with Stickley, crafters of exception furniture for more than 100 years.  Whether crafted in historical or modern designs, Stickley furniture is made with the same careful attention to detail and durability we demand from our own products.

And speaking of tradition, whether your 4th of July celebrations include grilled hamburgers or lamb kabobs, potato salad or salad shiraz, we want to wish each of you a very fun, safe and happy Independence Day,
