An independent manufacturer near the nation’s original Furniture City

Our Workshop

The workshop in Hamilton, Michigan is a 2640 square foot building filled with American made machinery dating back 100 years; to a time when all furniture was made by hand. 

Hamilton is located just outside Grand Rapids, Michigan: home to fine furniture makers for over 150 years. 


“Originally, I thought it would just be a hobby shop, but seeing labor and products go overseas inspired me to start my own business. I wanted to get back to making furniture by hand.” 

- Tom Grifhorst, President

Upholsterer at work in the studio for Wall Mounted Headboard

Quality Construction, Easy Installation

Our products are made-to-order and built to last multiple generations. We use only solid wood (no MDF or chip-board here!), padding, and commercial-grade fabrics. Wall mounted headboards secure firmly to studs in your wall using a french cleat system (just like cabinets).

Extensive Fabric Catalog

We have a wide array of fabric including velvet, tweed, leather, and Eco recast leather options, with additional colors and options available through our custom business services.
