For nearly 50 years, Palecek has been known for their innovative use of eco-conscious materials as well as their commitment the environment.
In addition to sustainability, Palecek is also known for perfectly blending traditional style with a modern aesthetic. With a focus on innovation, their indoor and outdoor furniture is hand-crafted with rattan and wicker materials, helping them curate unforgettable living spaces. Not only do they make eco-conscious furniture, but their lighting designs are also made in natural materials like wood, rope, shells, and coco beads. For example, the Mariana Beaded Chandelier in the photo below is strung with wood beads.
A Family of Designers | Furniture, Wall Decor, Lighting
Within the 50 year timeframe, Palecek has been lead by two extraordinary designers, and it’s all in the family.
First, we’ll start with Andrew Palecek, the second-generation designer, and Allan Palecek’s son. In 2004, he joined the executive team as a Vice President and now oversees the company’s creative direction.
Not only is he a creative visionary and award-winning designer, but he’s also very passionate about building relationships in the industry. In addition, Andrew has helped lead the company to be known for high-end design for residential and commercial furniture.
In the future, we look forward to seeing how Andrew’s innovative designs will continue to have an impact on the industry, as well as how he will lead future generations to continue the Palecek legacy.
“When you are lucky enough to build long, impactful relationships, you discover beautiful things together” – Andew T. Palecek
Allan H. Palecek
Next, we’ll introduce his father Allan H. Palecek, the first generation designer. He founded the business in 1974 after he saw a void in the market for rattan and wicker weaving techniques in the United States.
To begin his design career, he found inspiration from unique basket-weaving techniques in Asia which lead to his first product, woven baskets. They did so well he began to expand his product line. Eventually, he was able to build his own community of artisans domestically.
Later in his career, his ability to design beautiful yet functional pieces with natural fibers led him to be inducted into the American Home Furnishing Hall of Fame in 2020.
Overall, both designers have a passion for eco-conscious design and have been recognized nationally for their talent. Also, they produce everything in the United States. Palecek is based in the San Francisco Bay Area and everything is finished and upholstered in Richmond, VA.
