M. Campos Silva proudly presents his Portuguese soul through excellence in interior design, maximum comfort, innovation, and upholstery of the highest quality. It is an honor to have our products built by our craftsmen, distributed worldwide, and appreciated by the most demanding professionals.
In 1993, after many years of study, improvement and passion for the art of upholstery, Manuel Silva founded the company M. Campos Silva Estofos. He believed in simplicity, and simplicity is exactly how the company started: a small factory, two employees, and a lot of hard work.
Focusing on the high-end market, their goal was simple: to produce upholstery items for Portuguese stores – with maximum attention to detail, focus on the individuality of each piece, improve their production techniques more and more, and continually increase their trust with customers.
Within a few years of flourishing the business and building a network of trust, the now experienced manager decided it was time to create his first brand, Estonel.
Leather sofas in Europe were a big hit back then. Following this trend, the newborn brand grew year by year into a small but bustling factory located in northern Portugal.
After decades of experience, the development and production of upholstery now runs vividly through the company’s entire production chain. As the business grew over the years, the need for more space was urgent. In 2006 the company built an entirely new factory, designed from scratch. High tech machinery was purchased, new craftsmen were hired and trained in the art of upholstery, and a technical design department was created. Now M. Campos Silva has everything to be a reference player in the upholstery market.
Conquering Portugal was no longer enough – the European market would be the next step! Manuel Silva saw the opportunity to create a more versatile brand and in 2007, an important chapter was added to our story: The launch of our second brand, Greek.
BOW AND ARROW
The techniques developed over the years now blend with the trends of minimalism, craftsmanship and couture. With the collaboration of renowned Portuguese designers, the brand, Bow and Arrow Upholstery Design, was born in 2014.
M. CAMPOS SILVA
The company is already internationally known by its name, so why not name a brand M. Campos Silva? After studying intensively, we decided to do a rebranding of the Greek brand! We selected some of the best-selling items, developed a handful of beautiful new upholstery items, and merged them into a new brand. We strived not only to achieve more success, but also to reinforce the strength of the M. Campos Silva name. The first official catalog was released in 2020.
Recently, M. Campos Silva started to carry out works to enlarge the factory. We are also investing in the development of a new department focused on the production of structures in various materials – with the support of one of Portugal’s most highly regarded polymer engineering faculties. This investment will help us create products with challenging edges, even more curved shapes, develop new upholstery techniques, certified products, and most importantly, plant seeds for the future that lies ahead.
