The house of Saridis was established in 1867. Saridis reproduces authentic furniture from all styles and periods simultaneously, ranging from Louis XV to English designs, although fame came from the remakes of the classical ancient Greek furniture.
In 1960, T. H. Robsjohn Gibbings met Greek cabinetmakers Susan and Eleftherios Saridis, who were deeply interested in Greek archaeology and were the owners of one of the finest cabinet-making plants in Europe. With the Saridises, his own research and the help of a few similarly minded scholars, he designed furniture ripped straight from ancient Greek craters, mosaics and frescoes. Together, they created the Klismos line of furniture, which drew heavily on classical forms. The experiment turned out to exceed everyone's expectations.
With true respect of art and quality the skilled craftsmen work till this day from original furniture designs. To find a good walnut they sometimes tour the entire Greece. It is known that the factory throws away more wood than they use.
They finish their work with the Saridis stamp of authenticity.
