How did your company get started?

Years ago, founder Shimon travelled abroad where, for the first time, he set his eyes on freeform wood tables and stunning furniture made of natural, often recycled materials similar to what we see in our stores today. He instantly connected with these one-of-a-kind pieces and knew it was something he would be passionate about sharing.

What are your products/services?

Artemano focuses on handmade, high-quality furniture made mostly out of different types of beautiful wood.  Many of our pieces have a one-of-a-kind silhouette and unrefined design that comes straight from nature. All distinct features, including knots, cracks and crevices, are carefully preserved and cherished.  Many people don’t know that Artemano offers an in-home interior design service that you can take advantage of either before or after your purchase - you decide!

What is your company’s mantra?

“Home is an escape and we love to create it” . We believe that your home is the one place you should be able to go to truly relax. Incorporating organic furniture that you love is one of the best ways to achieve serenity.

What are your home and
garden pet peeves?

The old saying “less is more” is most definitely a belief of ours, so our design pet peeve is clutter.  Too much furniture or too many decorative accessories overwhelms any space and creates energy less conducive to tranquility.

What are your top 3 home and garden tips for this season?

  1. Opposites attract; mix warm and cold pieces, modern and rustic styling, bright and dull colors.
  2. Liven up any space for spring with plants and flowers for a fresh, bright zone.
  3. Quality over quantity. Instead of over accessorizing your home, choose a few pieces that best represent you and your space to be the focal point.
What is the weirdest client request you have ever received?

After looking at a rocking horse displayed in one of our stores, a customer asked if we has the same piece but with the horse holding a spear in one of its hands.  We did not.
