Budak opens first furniture showroom in London
The Budak Group was founded in Istanbul in 1983 and has been creating bespoke furniture for a range of private and commercial clients ever since.
In 2017 it opened a design studio in Manhattan, New York to focus on interior design projects.
The Budak Group is now launching its first showroom in London, giving private clients, architects and designers an opportunity to see some of their contemporary and traditional designs, and to appreciate fully the beautiful craftsmanship.
Budak London is headed by Dogan Cagatay in partnership with CEO Mustafa Tasar.
Clients include Sheraton Hotels, Savoy Theatre, Hampton Court Palace, GlaxoSmithKline, Bobbi Brown, Soho House, Hubert Zandberg and Morgan Stanley, plus private homes, offices, hotels, bars, restaurants and public buildings
At the core of Budak London is a passion to create bespoke furniture that can transform a room, or a property, into something truly outstanding. It combines contemporary design and beautiful craftsmanship in both modern and traditional styles.
The Chief Designer is acclaimed furniture craftsman Metin Macit, who is known world-wide for his artful blending of ornate English craftsmanship with contemporary styles. Metin has designed furniture for Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.
Each of Budak London’s pieces – from bespoke furniture including cabinets, dressers and chairs, to panels, coving, and one-off timeless pieces – has been exquisitely designed and crafted. Furniture can be tailor-made to order, following a traditional or contemporary design, depending on clients’ needs.
The Budak Group has a 3500m2 factory and showroom in Istanbul and their craftsmen, overseen by Metin Macit, use traditional and modern techniques to produce high quality, hand-made, original furniture to exacting standards.
“London has a strong design heritage and is a vibrant city that combines contemporary and traditional aesthetics – so it fits the Budak approach perfectly. We also already have a large number of clients in the UK so it made sense to open a showroom here to better serve them – and to introduce Metin’s craftmanship to a wider UK audience.” explains Dogan Cagatay.
The London showroom is at 171 St Johns Hill, London SW11 1TQ.
