At the age of 26, Tor Chantara lives his life simultaneously in two worlds, practicing the fine woodworking art of marquetry that has its roots in the 16th Century, while learning techniques and ordering supplies via the Internet.
The craftsmen of Martin & MacArthur create the widest selection of Koa wood sofas and loveseats. Some have upholstery cushions and others have classic, contoured Koa wood backrests for comfortable seating and beautiful appearance. We use only Koa from the Big Island to create our wood sofas and loveseats. All the Koa comes from previously dead or fallen trees. No trees are ever cut down to create our fine furniture.
We designed some of our sofas with classic, lathe-turned spindles made by one of our master craftsmen at our Furniture Workshop in Honolulu, Hawaii. We have over 30 fine craftsmen working full time for making beautiful furniture and home furnishings.
All of our sofas and loveseats come fully assembled. After all, as Hawaii's fine furniture maker for over 50 years, we do all the work. You should be able to sit back and enjoy.
