You are in the right place...
If you would like to live in a surrounding that expresses yourself.
If you feel that using mass produced goods are just a compromise.
If you wish for durable, natural solutions at a fair price.
If you would like to alter your home, but still reluctant to start it.
Ében Lepke Creative Workshop
Our furniture and paintings are based on fantasy, either custom made or fulfilling a general need.
We believe in sustainability and recycling. Unlike blocked board furniture, solid wood products can be mended, repainted or upcycled even decades later.
You might have met old wooden furniture from inheritance whose quality and durability have not faded throughout past decades. We would like to continue this practice in our products, using traditional carpentry techniques and methods, however meeting the demands of our time. As an example we try to use as few metal parts (such as screws) as possible.
The paintings and the patterns painted on woodwork are based on imagination. The small details appearing on the furniture are made one by one. Therefore, they are never truly the same. These designs are as durable as the furniture itself, one can even step on them.
Finding the right interior design for a home can be a tricky procedure. We not just need handy, comfortable and lasting pieces but also preferably ones that somehow express ourselves. Therefore, we would like to offer some help for reaching this aim that you truly find the furniture or painting that fits you and your family.
If you have an idea, photo or sketch or a distinct image in mind, contact us. We will send you a design plan, extra ideas if needed and a price quote. We offer flexible solutions. Tell us what painting or pattern you would like to see on your woodwork and we will make it for you.
Organic furniture without chemicals
All of our furniture is made of solid wood, with natural finishes, using the least possible metal parts.
For every painting and furniture we use carefully selected materials and pay high attention to quality.
We help to find the best furniture or painting that matches your needs. If you have an idea, photo or sketch, we will make it a reality for you.
I have been brought up in an artist family, exhibitions and art camps have always been part of everyday life. Therefore, my artistic upbringing has started very early. My studies took me to London for 6 years, where I had excellent opportunity to see and ’feel’ live the works of the great masters. The beauty, energy and inspiration coming from these works left an everlasting imprint on me. Painting is where I feel myself at home.
I had many opportunities to experiment with various techniques and materials. I had periods when I preferred aquarelle and chalk. However, about 15 years ago I started using oil paints and I still could not get tired of the vibrating colours, the infinite possibilities of mixing and the silky structure of the paints.
A few years ago I have started making digital paintings. I use a stylus and a digital drawing tablet, the painting appears on the monitor just waiting to be printed on canvas or paper.
In my work I love to explore hidden meanings and connections in life, searching for the invisible sense and wisdom of creation and aiming to capture life in its full beauty.

Creation has been part of my life since my childhood.
I have always enjoyed to build, to make something, a model or just a Lego. Since a love nature, fancy natural solutions, I turned my creative ambition towards woodworks. I have gained in-depth knowledge of the craft of carpentry. I owe much to dedicated teachers and I always keep an eye on professional happenings.
I create on-off pieces and custom furniture made to order. My products are handmade, using mainly hand tools. Obviously there are carpentry machines in my workshop; however, they simply complement handwork. Therefore, all pieces of furniture get a decent care, love and caress; they do not just run through a machine.
At the planning stage I examine many factors (place, colour, and living style) in order to secure that all comfort and functional need are met.
A ready piece can later be repainted, altered, mended. Therefore, a move or new colours in the home will not hinder the further use of a beloved piece of furniture. In the case of bigger furniture.
I can create ‘building blocks’ that gives greater mobility for future use. This way a smaller or different space will not cause any problems.
