OUR STORY / OUR HERITAGE

The origin of furniture in African homes began from a bit of wood carved to sit on without a back called a stool. Every piece of furniture you see today started from the stool. Both young and old sit on it and it is easy to carry about from indoors to outdoors. In the Yoruba language, a stool is called apoti. And that’s how Apoti Lagos got its name.

Apoti Lagos was established in 2017 and got registered in the year 2018. We began with creating purely local content; simple furniture with wood obtained from the forest. However, to increase the live usage of wood, we bumped on resin and started using it to seal and protect wood. More discovery came from resin being used for artistic embellishments.

Apoti Lagos transitioned from a solely ethnic brand to a luxurious wood and resin brand.
Our products are now 60-80% local content with the remaining being imported materials for finishing and design. We scream heritage.

While Resin Art may not be our culture, Apoti Lagos sets out to show how the different cultures of the world can form something magical. The resin on wood assures us that we can preserve our culture and heritage forever.
