MINT TEAM


When we consider the possibility of moving in with someone, we are very selective and try to choose someone who shares our values, who we can imagine spending the rest of our lives with and be ourselves. Why should it be different with our furniture? With strong emphasis on the timeless design, sustainability and outstanding quality, MINT Furniture believes it shouldn’t. Since year 2009 MINT Furniture has not only developed a very specific furniture design signature, but also grown as a team with strong minded and talented new members.
