January 2018 marked 110 years since Cintique began back in 1908. Although a lot of things have changed, we still remain a privately owned company with the same ethos and design techniques from 110 years ago.
Cintique has always insisted that products incorporate quality materials, good design, and a high specification of craftsmanship. Each piece remains hand-crafted to meet your specific order, which can be customised with sizes, wood colour and fabric options to suit your needs.
High quality beech frames are still the basis of the business, which was founded in 1908 by Jack Cinnamon. Until 1939, Cintique were major suppliers of frames to the trade. Show-wood is still the mainstay of our ranges, from full frames like the Vermont, to the Hazel with minimalist front-facing show-wood.
Our unique patented springing system remains a key feature to our chairs and sofas, made specifically for Cintique by Wade Spring. As Cintique have stressed over the last 110 years, "Sitting is Believing". However for now, see our original diagram that tells the whole story:
