Lucas Maassen & Sons Furniture Factory: Family at work !

Lucas Maassen has employed his 3 sons, Thijme (9), Julian (7) and Maris (7). His cute sons are responsible for the paint job of the furniture which is build in the factory. 


They get paid 1 Euro for every piece of furniture they paint. :) As agreed by the contract they signed.

Due to Dutch child labour laws it is only possible for Thijme, Julian and Maris to work for 3 hours a week. As a result of this the production speed has became a crucial factor in the process. Time limitations are set, they contribute to the typical LM&S aesthetics. 
All furniture is build by hand and painted by hand.  A good way to make some pocket money and develop artistic skills ! 

I like the results. Fresh, simple and young like them ! :)
