A detailed shot of a fraction of P.tendercool’s amazing collection of antique slabs of tropical hardwood. Over 8 years belgian designers Pieter Compernol and Stephanie Grusenmeyer collected about 200 slabs of the rarest tropical hardwoods, often chickenwing wood. Clients can select any of these slabs and ask P.tendercool to create a 100% bespoke dining table, desk or coffee table. The workshop or atelier is located in front of P.Tendercool gallery and is open to the public. Actually the atelier is a industrial archeological gem, built in the 1940’s and is still in original condition.

l'Art de vivre.We make Grand tables you will love to use and abuse. We love to cook, eat, drink and party; All big moments in life are celebrated around a table, the true centre of a home. Some, like Jack Nicholson in The Postman... or Pacino in Scarface, found other ways to enjoy one. Whichever your vice, chances are a table is near... so why not get a nice one? One your children will actually love to inherit.
We make furniture we would buy ourselvesIf we didn't like our own creations why would you love them? We just hate it when stuff brakes down the day you buy, only lasts a season, or for which you need Einstein to figure out what goes where.
We invented nothing newWe use our hands and hearts. We are experts in the age-old art of 'French polishing', follow 18th century French recipes to mix our waxes and oils, and import the best ingredients from France and Brazil. An antiques restorer mentors our carpenters. Armando, Our 75-year old Italian bronze master excels in the same 5000-year old techniques people in the Bronze age used.
We use our hands, and we careWe bring quality through supreme Craftsmanship and joined expertise, honouring and reviving ancient techniques. We use the best materials we can find and create with more than a little Mojo.
