The Profurn chair logo

The Profurn Logo

So you wonder what our logo represents… Well, it can be whatever you want to see.  For us it’s the symbol of what we love and what inspires us. Just a chair to most people, to others a symbol of gathering, time to sit down around the dinner table and enjoy time with your family, time to take a seat at the round table, time to  get focused,  but to us it is the first chair designed and made by us. It has that young modern flair with just a bit of authentic South Africa between the legs.

The CNC Furniture Process

Tables Tables Tables

Just finished! We just finished 20 new Bokkie Tables for your house. These versatile tables comes in several different finishes to fit right into your house. From the classic Marble look to the ever popular Butcher’s Block. All of our Bokkie Tables are either made from Pine or Oak. Now why Bokkie Table? ‘Bokkie’ is the Afrikaans word for ‘Trestle’, which is a leg with two diagonal slopes supported with a cross section. The leg is not fixed to the table surface and thus gives you a very versatile table, easy to move around and store if not needed. We then re-invented the wheel and made our own version of the traditional trestle or bokkie.
