A mutual love for wood

The Artisan factory emerged from the traditional woodwork shop Ćostović, which conveyed all its love towards wood and 50-year experience of wood processing into it. Artisan specializes in the manual production of high quality furniture made from solid wood, and this insistence on manual, artisan work is what sets us apart. We acquired our first experiences by producing furniture for Dutch and British designers, and we started our own first collection in collaboration with the regional designers in 2007. Since then, our aim has been to reaffirm the philosophy that guides us with each collection, each piece of wood, with each designer’s vision and a diligent craftsman's touch.


In 2014, Interlam Corporation saw the beauty and the brilliance of Artisan’s products. In 2015 both companies decided to work together to bring this outstanding line of furniture to North America.


Interlam is the world leader in the design and manufacture of architectural wall panels and components. Worldwide sales and shipping based in Mount Airy, North Carolina!
