‘demands are growing,’ says tom knezovic, ceo of Prostoria

 

Since starting its venture in 2011, Prostoria has become a leading design-centric company by fostering an integrative approach to creating furniture among all production participants. This dynamic environment allows designers to refine their ideas to high standards of functionality and craftsmanship. With a facility near Zagreb, Croatia, the company oversees every aspect of manufacturing to ensure superior quality. Their products are distributed across more than 60 countries and are available in over 1000 high-end stores worldwide.

 

Tom Knezovic, CEO of Prostoria, explains the reason behind the decision to establish a flagship store in the US: ‘Prostoria was already present in the North American market through various premium showrooms, but as the demand for our furniture started to grow, we wanted to offer better support to our partners, architects, designers and the end users.’

The Chicago flagship store offers a curated selection of sofas, armchairs, chairs, tables, and accessories that evoke the atmosphere of a cozy home or hotel lobby, characterized by a blend of Mediterranean sensibility and northern rationality. Using natural materials for both durability and tactile pleasure, every furniture piece embodies a commitment to comfort and quality. Emphasizing this dedication Iva Silovic, Art Director at Prostoria, states:

 

‘Comfort is what all of our products have in common. For us, comfort means honesty and it means quality. We want people to love using our products, to enjoy the comfort of sitting in them and living with them. The reason we’re able to achieve extraordinary levels of comfort is because we produce our furniture in-house and can control the whole process.’
