Life unfolds at a dizzying pace. KONEKT is a boutique furniture company built on the belief that home is a sanctuary, a place for comfort and beauty; a means to reconnect with family, friends and one’s core being. Our ARTISANAL furniture invites harmony into the home, engaging the senses through expressive natural materials, hand- craftsmanship, organic shapes, textures and patinas. The tactile experience is emphasized as much as form and function.
At the core of Konekt is Helena Sultan, whose lifelong passion for interiors, furniture and art informs her design approach. A photographer and award winning documentary filmmaker in prior careers, she developed her eye beginning in childhood. Helena grew up in a home filled with art and was influenced by the rich colors and layered textures of her mothers abstract oil paintings, as well as the patinated metal vats and pipes of her fathers gritty industrial plant. As a young adult, she began to develop her deep appreciation for the nuanced beauty of antique objects and furniture as she scoured antique shops, flea markets and auction houses. Helena’s sensibilities were further honed as she traveled widely, absorbing different cultures and influences. These experiences have culminated in her embrace of detail and unique aesthetic. Her signature “sublime luxury” embodies an innate desire for refinement, simplicity and well-being.
Konekt is heirloom-quality furniture with customizable options that showcase materials such as wood, metal, parchment, leather, and hand-loomed textiles. Each handcrafted piece is made to order in Pennsylvania by skilled master craftsmen and accomplished artisans. Our meticulously selected materials and textiles are valued for their unique features: inherent markings, variations in grain and rich patinas which evolve over time. All of our woods are sustainable American hardwoods, hand-finished with the finest oils.
