Interior design is subject to trends. More than anybody else, Wouter and Mieke Tielemans of Meubelmakerij De Stoof are aware of that. Over the past 35 years, designs have become more contemporary. Whether a 1930s or a very modern decor, one thing is for sure, our customers use their available space more efficiently.” That is why the concept of built-in furniture has become quite popular.
Custom built furniture, like a closet or walk in closet, doesn’t just provide more storage space but is also more sustainable and easier to live in. Homes with custom fitted furniture are often sold for higher prices and could be considered an in investment in one’s home.
Cleverly planning a room lay out can transform a house into either a classic home or an extremely modern one, and provide a sense of opulence and spaciousness making a space appear larger than it is.
Utilizing stained glass, one is able to make better use of the light in all rooms and create more storage space with matching closets.
“Many of our customers already have a fixed idea of how their dream piece of furniture will have to look like, some of them bringing a sketch and all, the moment they step into our showroom”, says Wouter. “Whether a tree trunk table, a TV/storage combination, sideboard, kitchens, or bathroom furniture, it’s all made expertly by our craftsmen using ultra-modern machinery in our furniture-making shop,” he adds.
“Having invested (as the only furniture maker in Haaglanden) in costly machinery, we have the ability to deliver precision workmanship” says Wouter Tielemans. Our furniture, at Meubelmakerij De Stoof, is made with love and it is not without reason that De Stoof has become a household name in the entire Haaglanden.
What exactly is a stoof? “A stoof (stove) is a wooden box with holes on the top. A pottery bowl filled with glowing coals is placed in the stoof and provides warm, toasty feet”. “We consider De Stoof a symbol for coming home”, says Mieke Tielemans. “A stoof provides warmth and with that name we try to radiate a sense of comfort and homely cosines”.
