Portret Maartje

Maartje van Deursen 

Did wood choose Maartje or Maartje choose wood? Since graduating more than 25 years ago wood has been Maartje’s material of choice. Designs to make people’s lives more comfortable and enjoyable. Maartje creates autodidactic work as well as accepting commissions for interior designs.


Her Designs

Maartje’s furniture is both functional and elegant. Wood plays the leading role and with clean simple lines and without unnecessary frills, the timber is allowed to tell its own story.

    Cabinets of Curiosity

    We are curious makers of things, things we dream up ourselves. Remarkable, useful, beautiful and original things. Sometimes they are made entirely by hand, sometimes partly by machine, in the future perhaps by robots. May be not robots. Always with an eye for detail and with an element of fun.

    If you care to follow this blog and join our journey, we’ll share our successes and (occasional) failures with you and hopefully you’ll become a frequent visitor. Suppose that depends on us keeping you entertained. So let’s get on with the words and pictures.

    Work in progress
