SMW Cortis is a Maltese company specializing in the design, manufacture, and retailing of classical and garden furniture in solid timber.
The Classical lines of furniture are mostly manufactured out of solid mahogany. Furniture design is carried out in-house. Most of the furniture designs still involve a degree of intricate hand-carving which is undertaken by skilled local craftsmen.
The company manufactures a number of suites, mainly bedrooms, dining and sitting rooms. Different styles are available for the above-mentioned suites. All suites represent unique collections of furniture with timeless styles.
The collection of stairway balustrades includes different designs and models from the most simple to the most intricate wood-carved figures. The company works with different wood species, according to customer requests. The company also carries out the installation of stairway balustrades.
SMW Cortis also manufactures a unique line of mahogany grandfather clock cases in different dimensions and designs. These cases house the most precise German products.
Lastly, the company manufactures a very wide range of hall and loose furniture. These include chairs, armchairs, divans, tables, coffee tables, bureaus, mirror brackets, ‘sotto specchi’, monks’ benches and much more. All represent unique pieces of furniture, ideal for the furnishing of halls, dining room suites, bedrooms, corridors and entrances.
The Garden Furniture line by SMW Cortis is manufactured predominantly in Iroko and is intended for outdoor use in gardens, terraces, pool areas, etc. Once again all the furniture is designed by the company.
The Garden Furniture line can be divided in two sections. The first is a collection of loose furniture consisting of chairs, deckchairs, armchairs, stools, benches and tables. Even though Iroko is highly recommended for outdoor use, the products can also be manufactured in a range of other materials such as oak or red deal.
