In 1982, furniture-making shop De Stoof in Leidschendam was founded by Frans and Mieke Tielemans. Over the years De Stoof has become a household world for many residents in the Randstad and beyond. In 2022 son Wouter and daughter Lotte Tielemans are continuing this family business with their team of furniture makers.
A stove provides warmth. So the name exudes comfort and a sense of home. A stoof is a wooden box with holes at the top. Inside the stoof, people used to place a pottery tray with glowing coals, for wonderfully warm feet. This is how home should feel. Nice and warm.
Leidschendam June 27, 2023- Furniture maker De Stoof is in the spotlight of the AD Weekend Magazine. Brother and sister, Wouter and Lotte Tielemans, are committed to sustainability in their family business. With Wood Loop, an initiative that reuses wood remnants, they save kilometres and reduce CO2 emissions.From coffee tables to built-in furniture, De Stoof makes custom-made furniture. A lot of wood is lost during the production process. Wood Loop collects wood remnants to make new boards, reducing 95,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions.Wouter and Lotte participate in the Wood Loop pilot project. Waste wood is collected and retrieved by Baars & Bloemhoff. The reuse saves costs and reduces CO2 emissions. The return trip is combined with new deliveries, saving even more CO2.De Stoof is proud of the 12,000 kilos of CO2 savings and the positive impact on the environment. Visit their showroom and discover custom-made furniture with a sustainable touch.
In an apartment in Noordwijk, the last pieces of furniture were hoisted in with a crane and we supplied, among other things, a custom-made kitchen. It is a good example of the interior construction projects of Meubelmakerij De Stoof. For large projects like this we work together as a team. Then (almost) nothing is impossible.
We have also taken a first step towards sustainability. We can therefore wholeheartedly recommend the free energy scan of the Municipality of Leidschendam-Voorburg. For example, we have already placed a wall in our showroom to insulate better (www.energiekeregio.nl/leidschendam-voorburg)
