Istvan Torok

After demanding and perilous travels throughout Europe, years that became decades of studying and learning from the old masters, I came to settle and hone my talents in America. It only made sense to me that this was the place where my talents would be needed. America was to me an empty canvas that could use a little paint. While this was the place where everything can be had, it seemed that old school art was omitted from the pages of history. While everything was leaning towards modern and simplified, with interiors and finishes out of a can or a box of furniture that can be bought in small numbered boxes in pretty colors. I sensed the need for art, real hand-made art. Finishes that not only resemble, but are the real thing; unique masterpieces on their own.

Museum quality work that can be found in the most demanding capitals of Europe. I set out to create a team that shared and lived my ideals. Over the past years I have created and become one of the few studios that can give a piece of history back. Our finishes complete your home, your furniture, you. Your home becomes a part of history and an extension of you. Guaranteed.
