About Altura Furniture
Altura is a furniture company known for creating simple and timeless pieces in modern-classic designs. Backed by a philosophy on passion – whether for design or construction, Altura Furniture pieces are produced based on visual design conceptualization, functionality, and construction integrity.
The History and Philosophy of Altura: Altura, one of the finest furniture makers in the industry, has been manufacturing beautiful, timeless pieces for 28 years. The philosophy of Altura Furniture can be summarized in one line – “A passion for design matched only by the desire to build.” The company started in New York in 1983 and is headed today by partners Jeff Behnke and Roland Zehetbauer. Altura Furniture has grown today into one of the most creative furniture manufacturers in the country. Its workshop in Portland Oregon continually produces brilliant pieces, as the stunning backdrop of the outdoors and the widely-renowned design culture of the city offer ample inspiration to the company designers and artisans. Thriving in a “design-build environment” where designing is both a passion and a profession, the founders of Altura, as well as its competent team of furniture makers, are able to produce refined yet innovative pieces that reflect the best of the classics and the finest of the contemporary styles. The design approach of partners Behnke and Zehetbauer is a process that involves visual concepts, functionality, and excellent structural quality. These result in smart, inventive furniture pieces which are both a work of passion and a work of art.
