Luonto Furniture began in 1964, when Finnish farmer, Pentti Viitala made the most courageous decision of his life: He sold his cows, bought a truck, and began upholstering sofas in the hen house of the family farm, selling them door to door. The foundation of courage and commitment on which Pentti Viitala conceived and built his furniture company is ever-present in Luonto today.
