The foundations of Artifort were laid by Jules Wagemans. He set up business as an upholstery in Maastricht in 1890. By the 1960s, internationally, the furniture seemed to be very much in demand, which resulted in enormous sales growth which has continued to boom to this day.

In the Artifort collection, everyone who attaches importance to form and function will find a design that captures their heart. Their designs are timeless, enduring, and authoritative.
