The James+James Story
In 2011, while unemployed and job hunting, James Smith noticed there was a large void in the furniture industry for affordable, quality, and real-wood furniture. So he bought a $40 skill saw, some stain, and wood and built a coffee table in his garage. He listed the coffee table online and although that first table didn't sell for a month, orders started flowing in for dining tables, benches, night stands, and more. It was obvious people wanted solid, attractive, real-wood furniture at an affordable price. Smith quickly partnered with college friend James Eldridge to help meet the growing demand and James+James was born.
Today, James+James is one of the fastest growing furniture companies in the country, with James+James products found in all 50 states and 6 countries. Job creation right here in the U.S. continues to remain a top priority. James+James now provides work to over 25 team members and growing. We feel so blessed to be able to do exactly what we love and meet so many great people across the country.
We still build by hand in Northwest Arkansas from real, solid wood and every James+James built item is branded with the James+James mark. Thanks for supporting local craftsmen and garage-started businesses
