Pavlo Schtakleff founded Se Furniture in 2007 and quickly emerged as a powerful director of quality, luxurious furnishings created by an exclusive and international cadre of designers, including Damien Langlois-Meurinne and Jaime Hayon. The collection continues to evolve, as more and more pieces are introduced, and the brand is gaining momentum. A very smart move on Schtakleff's part was the decision to collaborate over the past few years with talented designer Nika Zupanc, whose vision contributed greatly to the brand's strong whole-room concept that debuted this year.
