We are unique

We are the only joinery in the Czech Republic that can produce authentic replicas of historical furniture.

We stick exactly to the historical period, we know how to distinguish between Czech and French Baroque so that the result is completely authentic.

For each order we will prepare a high-quality project documentation with every detail of the carving drawn in the drawing.

We also supply larger interiors, including the furnishing of entire buildings: chateaus, historic mansions, such as the Grand Hotel in Uherské Hradiště.

Custom historical furniture

Each piece of furniture is unique. Each piece starts with your idea. Idea crafted into an authentic replica of a historical piece of furniture, or an original piece of furniture inspired by a specific historical style. Want to know more? Read our ordering step by step.

Our work is not focused on a single piece of furniture. Full historical interiors are our specialty: we furnish castles and chateaus, historical mansions, or ancient buildings.  Sofa beds, richly engraved cabinets, carved mirrors, paneled ceilings, hunting trophies. We create every detail with respect to the place, historical era, and your needs.

Stylish restaurants, coffee houses, libraries, antique bookshops, barrister offices, golf clubs – those are the places where we recreate history with furniture.

Social responsibility

We respect mother nature. We respect the material. We respect our employees. We respect each other. Ourselves. These are the core values of the MAT business.

Respect is important. Respect for the accuracy of the historical period. Respect for the world that surrounds us. Respect for rules, norms, and ethics.

  • We use only timber that meets all legal requirements of Indonesia and the EU.
  • We renew our legal timber certification each year. We also hold the FLEGT License.
  • Gentle finishing touch is important. We use eco-friendly, non-toxic oils and paints. 
  • Our furniture has a soul. Hand-crafted. Hand-carved, hand-gilded, hand-finished.
  • We can appreciate good work. We employ some of the best carvers and carpenters and give them a fair wage – way higher than average in their field. We are against “cheap work”.

We are unique

We create authentic replicas of historical furniture. And we mean authenticity. We will study every detail of your desired historical period. Style used in your specific country, for a specific occasion. We understand nuances, e.g. between baroque style in Bohemia and France, and apply them to our work.

To achieve true authenticity and reflect your ideas and wishes, we write project documentation with every detail of the carving.

We specialize in complete historical interiors including the furnishing of buildings, such as castles, historical mansions, restaurants, or hotels.

Our story

This is a story of two friends from the heart of Europe.

Martin and Tomas. M & T. MAT.

We are two guys from the Czech Republic.

Born in Czechoslovakia.

Our country has the highest density of castles in the world.

And each castle is full of historical furniture. Exquisite, robust, delicate, antique furniture.

Tomas happens to know everything about carpentry. . For decades.

Martin happens to be a born businessman. He knows his products. He traveled the world.

One hot summer evening, and Martin met in a famous bar in Semarang.

The year was 2015.

Tomas was talking about historical furniture, good craftsmanship and interior design. Martin was listening.

Suddenly, they got an idea.

Let’s combine the unique craftsmanship of Tomas with business skills of Martin. Let’s promote our skills throughout the globe.

And just like that, MAT interiors were born.

We are MAT. Czech company that creates authentic replicas of antique furniture and historical interiors.

Who we are?

Martin: project manager and a businessman, who found his purpose in hand-crafted furniture.

Tomas: carpenter and upholsterer. His destiny is to make furniture. He has been designing, carving, and upholstering furniture since the 1990s. He learned craftsmanship from the best. His eye for detail, knowledge of nuances in historical periods and love for wood make him an exceptional professional.

Master Joko: A Legend. Mr. craftsman. Experienced, patient, precise.

Ashep: A great designer from Indonesia, very experienced drafter and leader of his team.

Nurul: beating heart of our company. When we design, carve, and sell, she takes care of the rest. Tracks deadlines, answers emails, pays invoices and does all the paperwork.

Talented Indonesian carvers and carpenters: Soul of the company. Honest craftsmen. Their talent and hard work are reflected in each of our handcrafted pieces of furniture.
