Comforty—a leading brand of upholstered furniture in Poland, founded in 2000 in Nowe Skalmierzyce (Wielkopolska region). With its long tradition of furniture-making, the region was an ideal place to start a company based on local crafts and on its own technological and manufacturing base to design high-quality upholstered furniture for public spaces and private homes. By working closely with designers and by being actively involved in many architectural projects, Comforty designs keep evolving as people's lifestyles keep changing… Comforty works with a number of the world's leading designers. The company's portfolio includes works by Tomasz Augustyniak, Dorota Koziara, Tomek Rygalik, Krystian Kowalski, Maja Ganszyniec as well as designers of international profile such as Anderssen&Voll Studio, Philippe Nigro and the LucidiPevere Studio. Many of the products designed for Comforty are among the most iconic examples of contemporary Polish furniture. They have been exhibited at the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle, during the Łódź Design Festival, at the Museum Triennale di Milano, during London Design Week, at Imm Cologne, Design Week in Paris and at other venues.
