Reforest Design was founded by Ewelina Pankowska in 2018.

Our vision is to redefine and evolve what is currently recognized as sustainable furniture. Ewelina has been designing & making furniture for 12 years and has not been able to stop challenging the current furniture industry. Every design is focused on comfort, quality, longevity, ease of repair, creative expression, production ethics, and preserving our natural world. Each necessity shapes her furniture ideas and results in designs that are evolving and improving with every year of wisdom.

Ewelina studied at OCAD University with a major in Environmental Design, and minor in Furniture Design. 

Production

The production team will grow with furniture demand, right now it's just Ewelina. At a small scale, all parts are cut by hand with a router, jigsaw and table-saw. With high demand some parts are cut with a CNC machine, but that only reduces 50% of the workload, the rest is still done by hand. This includes holes, hardware, sanding and finishing (oil-wax). If the demand is still not met, even with the CNC, 'Emergency Pete' joins Ewelina at the studio.

Templates and jigs are designed to assure accuracy with all hand-work.
