American Made Since 2011
COUEF, which stands for Chair * Ottoman * Upholstered * End Table * Furniture, is a collection of over 20 pieces that are fully customizable for any taste or situation. Chicago land's finest artisans have painstakingly scrutinized every detail to guarantee the originality and quality of every COUEF design. COUEF was created by design team Danielle Yucht and Jamie Schachtel of the Jamie Schachtel Design Group, an interior design firm based out of Chicago land. Jamie specializes in creating innovative and livable environments to suit her client’s needs. Over 25 years of Jamie listening, understanding, and designing have led to the creation of a line of furniture that encompasses her visions of high design as well as serving a useful home function. The concept is creating harmony in space so no matter what the situation entails the pieces remain usable and the center of attention. The synthesis of ideas and usability created COUEF.
