Our Story
Kate Madison Furniture started in 2003 with an idea that spawned from frustration when the founders went shopping for "real wood" furniture in local furniture stores. What they found was poor-quality, mass-manufacturered, and "disposable" furniture that would last a few years before breaking or going "out-of-style". Where was the lasting furniture? Where was the furniture made of solid-wood, with low-VOC finishes that could be enjoyed for decades, gaining character with time? There had to be something better, at a price on par with the "big box" stores. And, so KateMadison.com was launched.
