Information in English

Curtis & Curtis is a family owned/run business and we take a great pride in our name and customer service.   We have been based at Wiener Platz, close to the center of Munich for over 20 years.

We believe that the best form of advertising is by recommendation from satisfied customers. Lee Curtis (British) begun restoring and selling antique furniture in London in the 1970s. Curtis & Curtis was founded in Wiener Platz when Lee moved to Munich and married Eva (German) in the 1990s. The shop originally sold antiques only. The transition to include designing and making new furniture (in a traditional style) was gradual     and resulted from requests made by customers.

Curtis Workshop - Made to size

Our handmade, solid wood, Furniture Range uses a simple, classic 19th century style suited to mix with modern furniture or other antiques.  This is made to have a character similar to antique pieces and, using this style, we can make practically anything you wish. 

You have only to discuss your specific needs with our design team and we will produce a professional scaled drawing for you to consider. We will also inform you exactly what the item will cost and a delivery date (often less than 8 weeks). This is a free service. 

We produce hundreds of special customer requirement drawings per year and most are accepted and made. This can be anything from a small bed-side table to a huge 4 meter long bedroom wardrobe, restaurant bar or private library.

When you visit our showroom you can view samples of our standard product range - over 100 popular items that we continually produce - You may find something that fulfils your needs or, if not, we can adapt any of our existing designs to suit your specific requirements. So it will not be difficult for you to imagine how your special piece will look - it will most likely be a slight size variation of something that we are already making! 

 

Tables from Curtis and Curtis

Antique style dining tables are our speciality and we sincerely believe that it will be difficult to find a better range of superb quality tables in any other single location. We supply tables, handmade to any size,  in a variety of high quality hard woods (cherry, oak, etc), and in many shades of deep rich wood tones and colours.  Our finest tables use a durable wax finish that is easy to clean and will not be harmed by spilt wine, tea or coffee. If you are looking for a genuine antique table you should consider our alternative possibilities that are practically indistinguishable from the antique and may be made to the size and finish you require.

Children's Furniture

Our popular chest of drawers with removable baby nappy changing top is available in two classic designs that match our special baby cot - children´s bed and wardrobes. We can therefore supply single  pieces or furnish a complete child´s bedroom and playroom. Because we use a classic style and solid wood our pieces are intended for lifetime use. For example - our baby cot converts to a child´s bed and can also be used as an adult´s  sofa. The chest of drawers, when the baby top is removed, can be used anywhere in your home. Our wardrobes are all supplied with adjustable interior shelves and removable clothes rails so they are entirely flexible for alternative uses - for example - in a lounge - to contain a TV and Hi-Fi units, books,  etc.  We also make open bookshelves to any size. A smaller version of our classic writing desk and small, low tables that are idea for kid´s playrooms.
