My journey into the world of industrial style furniture started as a part-time business venture while I was working in the tech industry. With a stable job, flexible schedule, and growing family, I never imagined I’d completely change careers. But life has a way of leading us to unexpected paths and it was a great opportunity to work with my father.
Many people have asked me how I made the transition from tech to furniture, but for me it was a natural progression. From a young age, I was drawn to mechanical and creative projects, spending countless hours working on old cars with my father and learning the art of welding and metalworking as a hobby. This hands-on experience and love of metal eventually led me to the genre of industrial-style furniture. I was captivated by the rugged beauty of the pieces and saw an opportunity to put my own skills and creativity to work.
In the beginning we made simple pieces with the idea that if they didn’t sell I’d at least have something for myself, but they did sell. I was amazed by the interest and support from business owners, architects, designers, and other clients. With the encouragement of my wife, my parents and extended family, I continued to create and experiment with new designs. I quickly realized that I had a true passion for furniture-making and a talent for bringing unique visions to life.
After spending a few years learning every aspect of the business, from fabrication and woodworking to shipping and logistics, I made the decision to take a leap of faith and leave the tech world to pursue Modern Industrial Furniture full-time. It was a risk, but with the support of my family, I knew it was the right path. I am now proud to say that my handcrafted pieces are sold across the nation and internationally, and I couldn't be happier with the path that life has led me on.
From one generation to another, I learned a great deal from my father. With his 40+ years of metal working experience it only made sense that we should work together as a father and son team. Sadly, my father passed away in 2022, who was a source of support and encouragement throughout my journey. I miss him greatly, but I'm proud of what we were able to build together and the times we spent building this company. His presence is dearly missed and his wisdom lives on in me and our team.
Commitment to Quality
Despite our growth, commitment to quality and craftsmanship remains at the heart of everything we do. I take great pride in designing each piece and seeing it brought to life by my talented team. We offer unique, handcrafted pieces that are made-to-order and built to last.
