Since 2011 we renovate and sell furniture and home decor items. Our main speciality is furniture from the second half of the 20th century. Throughout the entire existence of Nanovo, we have encountered all kinds of possible restoration issues and met so many craftsmen that we are able to restore (almost) anything.
One of our shops main rules is to sell items that our customers can use right away. As passionate collectors we were always unpleasantly surprised when we purchased e.g. a beautiful old sofa only to deal with weeks-long renovations of the individual sofa parts. The wooden skelet had to be fixed with one carpenter, someone else would apply the varnish, and only then we could go see the upholsterer. Whether it was furniture or some home decor items, it was always a very lengthy procedure.
We dare say that this process is an absolute treat with us. We simply renovate the entire piece! If there is something we can’t fix, we know someone who can. We will take care of everything so you can get your items ready as new and fixed. We are able to renovate everything made out of quality materials. If something cannot be restored, we may be able to reproduce it: sometimes we use 3D printers to reproduce missing parts. However, we still prefer working the old-fashioned way!
Beech chair with a padded seat designed by Miroslav Navrátil. New varnish on the wooden frame and new upholstered seat.
Wooden folding sofa after complete renovation including new upholstery and cover. We had to manufacture a new metal part that was missing to ensure safe and comfortable folding.
This wooden armchair was originally stained and varnished with a colourless varnish and the armrest was broken. It was necessary to fix both the armrest and remove the old varnish. The frame was also restored and spray-painted with black varnish finish. We also manufactured a brand new seating pillow following the design of the original one.
This armchair from award-winning furniture series received a silver medal at Milano Triennale in 1946! It beautifully complements coffee table. Its wooden construction is after a complete renovation. We created a brand new seating pillow including new straps.
This armchair with fibreglass shell and wooden leg frame was designed by Miroslav Navrátil. We added brand new upholstery for the pillow, and we had to manufacture one of the legs as it was missing.
Wooden functionalist wardrobe produced by company called Hynek Gottwald during Czechoslovakia’s First Republic era (1918-1938). Completely new varnish on the entire surface, restoration and cleanup of the interior parts. We also changed the chrome on the metal construction.
Wooden cabinet with ash veneer. The cabinet’s surface was damaged and we had to refill the veneer.
Coffee table designed by Karel Koželka and Antonín Kropáček in 1944 for Czech artistic workshops (České umělecké dílny). The entire furniture series from which this coffee table comes from received in 1946 a silver medal at Milano Triennale. The table was originally beech stained, but our customer hoped for a darker shade, ideally walnut. We had to manufacture a new glass for this table as the original one was missing.
This chair is in ash veneer with brand new varnish, repaired seat and new upholstery.
