Connection Through Design
Our story began when I got bit hard by the woodworking bug in 2014. At the time, I was going through a professional transition and was starting the process of selling my first company. I had never formally designed or built anything but I was a lifelong student of design; from architecture to fine arts.
My ability to express myself creatively - a necessity for me - was fading and it was time to shake things up. I attended a local college to learn woodworking at night and after learning the fundamentals, I made the decision that the focus of my next business would be furniture. This was not a popular decision. It probably still isn't - I mean very few would advise anyone to manufacture furniture in North America.
But swimming downstream was never my thing and so I opened a shop and just started making things. Nine years later, I am proud to say that we still make everything in our Toronto woodshop with the help of some local metal fabricators.
KROFT is not driven by profit. We are a value centric furniture brand that invests most of our energy on design, fabrication and execution. I started this company with the hope that I could connect with people around the world through our work. It is still the greatest reward to this day.
We understand the trust that you put in us when you buy something from our store sight unseen and we never take that for granted.
On behalf of the fabricators and team at KROFT, thank you for visiting and please let us know if we can help you with any questions that you may have.
