Our Story

Based in the Los Angeles area, MARCALI brings forth an innovative take on traditional furniture designs, merging modern aesthetics with Hollywood glamour. Blending their backgrounds in film, design and manufacturing, husband and wife team David and Jennifer Dolak sought to create beautiful, timeless furniture that will last for generations. In 2008, the duo launched MARCALI, a rapidly expanding made-to-order product line that features elegant upholstered furniture, unique hardware, exquisite case goods, Italian leathers, luxury indoor and outdoor textiles, and outdoor furnishings to the qualified trade. Their initial collection of eight upholstered pieces has grown to over 80 unique product offerings, with several new additions each year. Sold exclusively to qualified trade professionals in the interior design field, MARCALI pieces can be found in showrooms throughout the United States and online at Dering Hall.  

MARCALI offers custom, made to order production capabilities for any size project imaginable. From concept to completion, MARCALI provides unsurpassed abilities in woodworking, finishing, upholstery, and metal work to designers and design firms alike. MARCALI specializes in the High-End Residential, Commercial and Hospitality markets. Each piece is handcrafted in the MARCALI workroom in California by skilled artisans trained in traditional European techniques.

In addition to their furniture line, MARCALI takes on a few, very select and private, interior design projects each year.

Our Founders

In 2008, after more than a decade of manufacturing and consulting for several top name high end private labels in the furniture industry, David and Jennifer Dolak made the decision to utilize their industry and design knowledge to launch their own line of custom, made to order fine furnishings case goods and accessories.

Born on opposite sides of the globe, he in Hungary and she in Colorado, David and Jennifer met while attending in high school in Southern California and began working together in David's father's upholstery shop after school and on weekends. When not designing furniture, David and Jennifer enjoy backyard barbecues, trips to the beach, travel and spending time with their three children. 

Our Legacy

While many design houses are taking their primary production overseas, at Marcali we believe in supporting the local economy which is why all of our Marcali pieces, including our teak offerings, are 100% designed and hand crafted in Southern California. In keeping with our commitment to the environment, Marcali sources FSC certified woods, uses low to no-VOC glues, paints and finishes and has established an in-house recycling system to eliminate as much waste as possible.
