Sleek and timeless furniture made of hardwood is and will always be sought after. These are pieces that we buy once and they last for generations, because of the high level of craftsmanship and minimalist design that stand for a certain lifestyle. Sixay Furniture is passionate about nature, design and quality and offers high quality handcrafted furniture made of hardwood in a timeless design. Each piece is an eye candy and is ergonomically shaped for a maximum comfort.
Sixay Furniture has been present on the furniture market since 1995. The family venture from Sopron, Hungary – founded by Laszlo Szikszai and his wife – gained a good level of popularity among design fans especially on the German speaking markets, such as Austria, Germany and Switzerland and it is making a name for itself on other markets, too. Sixay Furniture designs have already been awarded with several prizes and distinctions in Austria and in Hungary.
Originally from Debrecen (east Hungary), Laszlo graduated from the Faculty of Wood Sciences of the renown University of Western Hungary and has been active in this field ever since. Beside his love for wooden furniture, Laszlo is also the Hungarian distributor of the German Auro Natural Colors, a company specializing in the development and distribution of environmentally friendly wood paints and wood care products.
Sixay Furniture collections are designed and developed by Laszlo, and manufacturing of the furniture takes place in small Hungarian manufactories, while upholstery is done in Vienna, Austria. The designer appreciates and maintains a longterm relationship with the highly skilled craftsmen, who share the same passion for wood and wooden furniture. Sixay Furniture pieces are exclusively made of wood that originates from sustainably managed Hungarian forests. Types of hardwood used include beech, core beech, maple, oak, ash, cherry, pear, walnut, black walnut and plum with only all-natural material finish.
Laszlo is an advocate of functional design and takes his inspiration from various sources: sometimes special customer inquiries inspire him to a new piece, other times he starts drawing and making some sketches that turn out to be the next bestseller. Customers’ all time favorite has been around for a while: OTTO, the multitalented small stool is a perfect buddy for thousand things. OTTO has been displayed at various design exhibitions and it received substantial press coverage. Sixay Furniture offers a wide range of chairs, stools, tables, beds and various other pieces.
Building a brand and a company is a longterm project that requires perseverance and determination. Laszlo’s designs are the result of his personal passion for unique, natural furniture with distinctive and gentle shapes as well as of his know-how he gained throughout the years. These combined with carefully chosen materials and superior quality products will “make your heart miss a beat” and Sixay Furniture stand out.
