The Quilpo Collection
The Quilpo (pronounced KIL-po) chair is a stunning piece that’s also a pleasure to relax in. It’s now the keystone of a complete line of ergonomic and organic furniture.
Handmade with care and pride by American furniture craftsman Dan Bursztyn.

The Quilpo line is rooted in the American Studio Furniture Movement and European Mid-Century Modernism. It’s a collection of original pieces, destined to be classics.
Quilpo Leather Lounge Chair and Ottoman set
This distinctive joint makes for a solid chair that’s surprisingly light and easily moved and disassembled.
The wedged tennon is one of the oldest woodworking techniques. Beautiful in it’s strength and simplicity, I’ve made it a stand-out focal point of the piece.
Full-grain grass-fed Argentine saddle leather cut unusually thick. One continuous leather sling eliminates pressure points. The frame flexes as you settle in.
I’ve never seen a single continuous sling this large used in furniture. I sort through hundreds of samples to find the select few.
The structure of the Quilpo line rests on the strength and elasticity of the Zoita wood, a dense and honey colored hardwood from the north of Argentina.
The resilient hand-rubbed oil finish brings out a deep and satisfying lustre in harmony with the saddle leather seats.
Made one at a time with pride and care. These are unique and outstanding pieces both classic and fresh.
The Quilpo collection is a project that I am passionate about. It’s the culmination of hundreds of hours of sketching, modeling and prototyping.
The Quilpo coffee table stands lightly with its tapered and curved legs supporting a polished elliptical top.

The Quilpo dining table is a solid and elegant presence… with a swagger.
The hand-rubbed oil finish is both silky and durable; it works in a formal setting and as the everyday family base. – Either way, it feels like home.
Quilpo Dining Table
I love this: Run your palm over the table’s edge. The bevel twists along its length, reversing its angle as it goes.
Unusually long legs are an attractive feature of the Quilpo low back Chair. Light, comfortable and beautiful from every angle.

The Quilpo bench shares its geometry with the Dining table, it’s a great companion piece that also works well as a stand alone in the entrance or hallway.
Great as a side table or a hinge point between reading chairs.
Quilpo Occasional Table
Polished wood frame, high quality upholstery and perfect geometry.
It’s a sharp 3-seater with a beautiful leather strap back – great for dividing a large space.

I am inspired by a Buddhist concept of sustainability: the object must be made to last as long as it took the tree to provide the wood being used; a tree may live more than 100 years. My furniture is designed and built for longevity, like a tree, respectful of its roots and fostering a sustainable environment.
Call or email me for orders. Shipping is free anywhere in the world. All pieces are made-to-order. Table dimensions and chair heights can be customized, and I’d be happy to inscribe a dedication on the underside!
