For nearly 50 years, PALECEK designs have been inspired by the beauty of natural materials. Strong partnerships with artisans and vendors around the world, and a headquarters and manufacturing site in Northern California, yield a signature style that marries tradition with distinctly modern finishes. A family owned company, PALECEK strives to sustain the environment and be responsible in business, leaving a proud legacy for the generations that follow. With a focus on innovation and design, PALECEK is a trusted partner in curating unforgettable living spaces. In 2004, Allan’s son Andrew T. Palecek joined the executive team and now oversees the company’s creative direction. Andrew’s passion for design, and business management will continue the PALECEK legacy for the generations that follow.

Allan H. Palecek, Chairman and Founder
Andrew T. Palecek, Chief Creative Officer


Palecek is proud to have been in business in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1974. Our domestic manufacturing headquarters is one of the largest employers in the town of Richmond, CA. Thanks to our team, we now boast eight national showrooms, a powerful international sales force, retail success, and a thriving Contract division.

Palecek believes that “green” is a process, not a destination. We acknowledge that ours is a resource-intensive industry that necessitates a balance of style and sustainability. As standards continue to evolve, we consistently strive to use sources that are gentle on both the environment and the people who work within it. That’s why our woods are largely plantation grown, and we use abundant, quickly renewable materials like rattan, abaca, and seagrass. We also rely on water-based finishes in our line of paintable furniture, making them safer for your family, and our employees. Our concern for the environment
extends beyond the products we manufacture and into how we conduct business. Palecek offices, showrooms, and warehouses all reflect our growing commitment to the “green process,” as we implement more ways to conserve energy and resources, recycle materials, and educate our customers on the steps we are taking so that they are inspired to do the same.

Palecek knows that life is about balance. From humanitarian concerns, to environmental protection, the true success of a business is in its willingness to give back as it moves forward. Although we primarily use plantation grown woods, we are dedicated to the ongoing reforestation of the Philippines. In addition to sustaining the resources, Palecek believes it is also necessary to sustain indigenous crafts. We contribute to educational programs that ensure these beautiful weaving traditions thrive in future generations.
We believe in the simple principal of giving what you can, but giving nonetheless. Employee contributions were matched by Palecek after Hurrican Katrina, and the Asian tsunami disaster of 2004. Allan and Andrew Palecek flew to Indonesia in March 2005, and began regular donations of food, books, blankets, medical supplies, and other neces-
sities that continue to date.
