Before we tell you our story, I would like to say THANK YOU!
You (and others like you) are the lifeblood of small businesses like ours. Without you, we simply wouldn’t exist.
So, thank you for your support!
Let’s start at the start:
I started Porter Furniture in 2013 after building the furniture for my new home out of an old falling down barn that I was given. That, done out of necessity, turned into something a lot more than I ever imagined! With a lot of help along the way, we now get to make beautiful one of a kind furniture every day.
We are good at moving:
I started in the basement of my parent’s home, in the shop that my dad taught me woodworking in. I used my home as a showroom (until my wife got tired of me selling her new tables). After a short time, I took the plunge and moved into my first real shop and showroom. After two years, I needed more space and moved into a much bigger shop. One more time, we needed more space, and moved to our current location in a beautiful old building in Raytown, MO, the city that I grew up in. We love our new home, and would love for you to stop by and see us!
We have the best customers!
We have always been dedicated to providing ridiculously good customer service. We are proud to make a quality product, and do whatever we can to take care of our customers.
We love making unique stuff.
While some of our designs are the same, no two pieces are ever the same. We love creating each piece and seeing them come together to create something truly unique just for you.
We are excited about the future and are continually working on new ideas and new designs. We can’t wait to show off the new stuff we’re working on, and will tell you about them as soon as they’re perfect.
To all of our customers who have helped us get to where we are today, thank you! Some of our best ideas have come from you. We are proud to call you a customer, and many of you that have become friends, and we hope that you’ll stick with us for the long haul!
