Our story

Stilles’s beginnings date back to 1945, when a small group of carpenters led by Jože Durm joined forces in Sevnica. To begin with, they only restored old furniture, but later began to make furniture to order as well. The increased volume of orders led to the establishment of the Sevnica Carpenters’ Production Cooperative in 1947. Over the years, the company participated in the furnishing of a number of commercial and government buildings, official residences and hotels and gained a reputation as the leading manufacturer of furniture in Yugoslavia.

Increasing demand for period furniture led to the idea of the company developing its own lines of period furniture. In 1970, the company was renamed Stilles – for its stylish period furniture and furnishings.

Today, Stilles is a market-oriented company that exports 95% of its products to the global markets on average. Engineering projects comprise 90% of the company’s sales structure, while the rest is made up by sales of its own brand of furniture. Stilles offers high-quality furniture from its own period furniture collections, as well as modern furniture made to order.
