Since 1928, his grandfather Josef Landgrave, founded the Landgrave outdoor furniture brand in a quaint village in Germany. Inherited by his grandfather, Hector soon learned the skill by local artisans creating luxurious outdoor furniture through fine German craftsmanship and European design. In 1996 Hector's grandfather brought him to the family's factory and instilled the skills he needed to be where he is today. His grandfather strongly encouraged Hector's first collection at the age of 8 years old.
