Furniture pioneer Kewlox arrives in Antwerp

Belgian furniture maker Kewlox will officially open a store in Antwerp on 14 October, its seventh store in total. It does not require any tools to build its furniture, which has a lifelong guarantee.

100 % 'made in Belgium'


Kewlox dates back to 1958 when English engineer Kewley devised a system with wooden panels and iron frames. A man from Brussels acquired the licence in 1959 and launched Kewlox.


The company also has a web shop, where the customer can create his own design and get it produced based on the motto of the company: "smart design for every space".
