Simplicity, timelessness, quality and craftsmanship have all been at the centre of Pastoe's philosophy for nigh on a hundred years now. Since the company was founded in 1913, Pastoe has been making furniture of unruffled, austere design all these years. The secret is in the simplicity: our furniture is restrained and understated enough that one never grows weary of it. They are comforting and reassuring to look at, as if they have been sitting there for years. Because products need to be more than their outward appearance: they need character; you should be able to love them, to form an attachment with them.
