Heirloom-Quality, Hand-Carved Furniture

“Among the thousand ways the knowledge of woodworking is approached around the world, Zanat’s way of doing it is the most unique and personal.” —Michele De Lucchi

Craftsmanship is the essence of the Bosnian furniture brand Zanat. For four generations, the Nikšić family has been designing and building heirloom-quality, hand-carved furniture using a primitive technique that originated in a small village near their hometown of Konjic. Today this woodcarving technique is officially inscribed on the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity list.

The Konjic woodcarving technique is employed to create textures, patterns, and aesthetic styles that are limited only by the imagination of the artist-creator. The process enhances the tactility of wood pieces and transforms them into traditional or modern decorative art. No two pieces are the same.

Zanat takes great pride in protecting and promoting this unique heritage. The company materializes its vision into exquisite objects that introduce grace to the spaces we inhabit.
