Stolab is a Swedish furniture manufacturer with roots dating back to the early 20th century. Founded in 1907 in the village of Smålandsstenar, the furniture factory first produced only Windsor-style chairs from birch wood and initially operated simply under the name Stolfabriken, “the chair factory”, although the name was later converted to Stolfabriksaktiebolaget. In 1981, the name was shortened to its current form, and the company has since been known as Stolab. Although the company's range has expanded over the years to other wooden furniture, the wooden stick-back chairs – that it continues to manufacture in the village of Smålandsstenar – are still its best-known product and the basis of its esteemed brand.
