Furniture cannot be made by one man alone. It takes a team of professionals, each of whom is in charge of a process. Without this the finished furniture does not come out of the line. These professionals engage in their work today more than anything else for the customer who awaits the workmanship.
Each piece makes for one story that begins when an order is placed. Since our inception in 1946, we have continually come up to the customer with uncompromised high quality. Creating the best, moment by moment.

Every type of tree has its own personality, and each unique type of wood has its own solid and honest character. For every color of wood, there is also a different texture. We create designs that enhance interior décor, because we have mastered the artistry of using the right characteristics in the right context.
Natural wood is capable of a plethora of rich expressions that avoid all artifice. The gradations of the grain, the fine fiber network, the distinguishing small whorls, etc. are proof that a tree once grew naturally and now has provided us with its wood. Solid wood furniture design lets you enjoy the wood for what it is.
One attraction of solid wood furniture is that the tones of color deepen over time. We create the initial fine quality of a piece, but our products continue to become more beautiful. This is why our solid wood furniture is beloved for generations.
In 1946, shortly after the end of World War II, the founder Nagano Ryozo (1918–2001) started a furniture manufacturing business in the countryside of Amagi. Ryozo was thoroughgoing in Miso Koshi - Management, meaning that he never wasted a single piece of wood just like a thrifty cook would strain miso paste to make full use of it. If requested, Ryozo would carry furniture to Kitakyushu by cart. In the 1960s, his enthusiasm and down-to-earth management style enabled his business to rank at the top in the industry in terms of production scale with products enjoying wide recognition from customers across the country. For his management philosophy, Ryozo espoused the spirit of Wa (Harmony and Balance): have a sense of gratitude and willingness to serve by each supporting others.
Taking over his ideas, we continue to strive to develop human resources and products that win the trust of society as before.
Nagano Interior Industry will soon celebrate the 70th anniversary of its foundation. We could not have overcome many difficulties, and we would not be what we are today without customer support and patronage for which we would like to express our thanks. It is our earnest desire to deliver products that give greater satisfaction, and we hope to remain a company needed by society going forward.
Looking ahead, we are seeking new challenges that promise growth and an expanded scope of activities that includes developing business in overseas markets.
