More than 35 years ago Palecek began designing distinctive rattan and wicker items with one goal in mind, to create unique pieces of art from natural fibers. As the Palecek's traveled the world, they developed a network of master artisans, drawing inspiration from the indigenous peoples and their use of quickly renewable materials. Palecek's desire to mix an international palette of natural fibers into elegant furniture, lighting and accessories has made Palecek furniture and accesorries a trendsetter and pioneer in the use of fast-growing hardwoods, seagrass and rattan weaves. Their extensive line of award winning, handcrafted and eco-conscious designs are conceived in their domestic San Francisco Bay Area headquarters. It is here that Palecek master technicians upholster and finish your pieces, allowing Palecek to be your domestic design resource. As Palecek's Vice President, Andrew's passion for design and sophisticated style will continue the Palecek legacy, bringing distinctive designs to the market.
Palecek began as a basket company in the San Francisco Bay Area. The expertly woven baskets drew steady admirers, which grew into loyal customers, and an expanding product line. The Palecek family also grew, as Allan and his wife Nancy had two children, Andrew and Karey. The entire family is now involved with all aspects of the business, with Andrew and Allan acting as the key product design team.
Palecek believes that "green" is a process, not a destination. They acknowledge that ours is a resource-intensive industry that necessitates a balance of style and sustainability. As standards continue to evolve, the Paleceks consistently strive to use sources that are gentle on both the environment and the people who work within it. That's why the Palecek woods are largely plantation grown, and they use abundant, quickly renewable materials like rattan, abaca, and seagrass. Palecek also rely on water-based finishes in our line of paintable furniture, making them safer for your family, and our employees. The concern for the environment extends beyond the products they manufacture and into how they conduct business. Palecek offices, showrooms, and warehouses all reflect our growing commitment to the "green process," as the Palecek's implement more ways to conserve energy and resources, recycle materials, and educate customers on the steps they are taking so that they are inspired to do the same.
