In 1940, Karimoku took its first steps as a woodworking shop in Kariya, in the suburbs of Nagoya, Japan's third largest city. Since then, we have been committed to our love of trees and have steadfastly provided fine quality wooden furniture.
Widely recognized for its stance on furniture making based on its Quality First philosophy, by 1972 Karimoku had grown into Japan's No. 1 wooden furniture maker in terms of domestic sales. The Karimoku brand has been firmly established as a synonym of fine quality furniture and proof of reliable furniture, a reputation we have maintained to this day. We aspire to making furniture that creates a comfortable living space and will continue to be loved as a lifelong partner. Relying on its technology and creativity, Karimoku will remain committed to its quest for quality as a comprehensive furniture maker with an integrated system for manufacturing to marketing.
