Who We Are
Our House Designs is a privately owned, high end upholstery manufacturer that specializes in traditional and transitional leather furniture. OHD takes pride in creating a long-lasting, sustainable pieces of furniture from premium leathers and fabrics which will hold its comfort and value for generations. Our bench-made offerings are crafted by accomplished artisans in the North Carolina foothills, arguably the capital of high-end home furnishings.
At OHD we feel strongly about our Core Principles: family, community and quality. Any time we develop a product, or make changes to our furniture, we ask ourselves if these changes will negatively affect any of these core principles. We understand that quality comes from care, and by investing care in our team, we foster workers who are committed to creating pieces of the highest quality.
There is something special about bench made, bespoke furniture crafted by the hands of truly skilled furniture artisans. It's inspiring to watch our team members work their unique craft and bring life to each piece. Many of our furniture makers are 2nd and 3rd generation legacies, still employing the highest standard of time-honored furniture making traditions.
Our product development team puts particular care into designing the ergonomics of each piece to ensure the best seat in the house. By using the best cushioning available on the market and focusing on pitch, depth, and height, we create a seat that maximizes comfort for a wide range of preferences. Our cushion offerings are made in America and tailored to each piece to achieve a luxuriously comfortable sit that lasts a lifetime. In the event that you do decide to replace an OHD piece, you can be assured that your furniture will have held its value through resale or donation to a friend or loved one.
We are fully committed to using solid hardwood frames and premium materials throughout our process. Although many of the steps we take to ensure quality can not be seen by the naked eye, it is important that we know the products we are sending out into the world are safe, healthy, and built to the highest standards. Our fully upholstered frames are sourced locally from North Carolina companies while our decoratively carved profiles are imported from artisans across the world. We offer a wide range of premium leathers and fabrics to cover our silhouettes. We understand that sometimes you may have needs that extend beyond our material offerings, so we are happy to work with any fabrics and leathers provided by you. Our meticulous fabric and leather cutters, talented sewers, and experienced upholsterers are skilled in working with an array of materials to create the best quality piece for you.
There is no denying that sustainability has become an important factor in the furniture industry. A truly sustainable piece of furniture is one which will last a lifetime, made from high quality materials that are both durable and attractive. We exclusively use solid hardwood frames and true 8-way hand-tied seating foundations, providing the highest standard of comfort and durability for support and shape. OHD only uses select quality leathers and fabrics, the highest standards of practices, and environmentally safe materials that meet or exceed all California and USA compliance requirements and standards for our industry.
We hope you recognize our passion for producing quality products and that you’ll invite our family into your home to furnish your family’s memories with furniture built from the heart.
