Woodland Furniture was started in 1996 by Lynn and Pat Harker, in Idaho Falls, Idaho. It was Pat Harker (whose experience with her own successful design firm, Harker Design) who inspired the reasoning behind Woodland Furniture. She knew that if she could find a resource that followed these four simple ideals…
• Serve the interior design community with high quality products
• Back the product with world class service
• Deliver in under 12 weeks
• Charge a fair price
…then she would have found an ideal company for her own design firm to shop, but also that every designer would recognize the value as well. Woodland was created with this goal.
In 2000, Woodland was awarded the “Shingo Prize” for excellence in lean manufacturing, the highest recognition a manufacturer can receive. Woodland has continued to grow through the addition of Cabinetry, Rugs, Lighting and Upholstery to create a whole home solution for designers. In an era that multinational billion dollar companies claim that “automation is King,” and “not touched by human hands” wows consumers, Woodland’s value is all about the craft and artistry of custom designs and custom finishes. Even buyers who understand they are getting this extra value inevitably exclaim, on delivery, that we exceeded their expectations!
