The name Erdei derives from the Hungarian word “Erdö”, which means “forest”. “Erdei” literally translates to “the man from the woods”. And this truly is my origin. I have been surrounded by wood and Old World Craftsmen my entire life…three generations so far.
Life at Erdei Designs is simple. We work with wood to create breathtaking pieces of furniture.
Every tree tells a story. When we salvage a tree, we work with care to give it a new future.
My grandfather was a master carpenter. He was born in 1902 in Romania. My father was taught by his father in the European tradition. And this skill and love was passed down to me.
My father taught me, “Erdeis do not assemble furniture; We build living pieces of art that last for lifetimes to come.”
