“From Forest to Furniture”


Mozambique’s true potential comes to life in the beautiful hand-crafted hardwood furnishings available only at Dalmann. Each piece is made exclusively from Mozambican hardwoods, such as Panga Panga and Mutondo. Mozambican craftsmen use traditional techniques to create durable yet elegantly modern furnishings designed to bring an age old yet very new lifestyle to your home or office.

We produce furniture with conscience.

Wood is one of Mozambique’s most precious resources, and we are committed developing this resource locally. All wood used in Dalmann furnishings is from our concession, Catapu, in Sofala Province. Once the timber is harvested, we transport the wood to our factory in Beira for production.

The traditional methods shown here, mortise and tenon and frame and panel, are used by highly skilled Mozambican carpenters to produce furnishings well suited to modern living.

Panga Panga is extraordinary in its rarity; it is available in commercial quantities only in Mozambique. Its dark color with rich parenchyma bands brings a touch of the exotic into any room. Mutondo is a stunning deep cream colored yellow wood with its own ambience.

Keeping our production line entirely within Mozambique also allows for uninterrupted quality control, ensuring quality in each step of production. To close the cycle of production properly, we also reforest our concession after harvesting trees. See our forestry page for information about how we do this.

Nature’s diversity has inspired our designs, and Mozambique’s rivers our names.
