The first shop was opened in 1992 in an old tobacco barn in the middle of a Warsaw, NC field with the mission of creating well-crafted, expertly calculated, custom furniture. Initially most of the materials were imported. The Design Workshop team quickly realized that keeping things local was the way to go. Not only could they stand by the quality standards of the local products, but they could talk to real people and drive to see the raw materials. In addition to exceptional products the team could now respond more quickly to their orders and push the customization of each product further.

2 buildings later, the workshop boasts a metal fabrication shop and 2 wood production shops onsite. Building furniture solely from sustainable Appalachian forest wood, the workshop is thriving, building more and doing more installations than ever before.
