Kindel Furniture has built a reputation as one of America’s finest manufacturers of quality traditional reproduction and contemporary furniture.
Recent acquisitions of heritage brand Karges Furniture and Councill Furniture have positioned Kindel uniquely as a preeminent, luxury furniture brand made in the United States that is committed to bench-made methods and superior craftsmanship. The three respected brands are now joined together in one factory and collectively are known today as Kindel Grand Rapids.
Since its inception in 1901, Kindel Furniture has built its furniture entirely in Grand Rapids, Michigan. And by building the finest quality furniture possible, has earned licensing rights to the designs held by such great historical societies as the Winterthur Museum, Mount Vernon, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and the Irish Georgian Society. Recently, Kindel introduced designs that represent contemporary reflections on classical design, such as the Dorothy Draper collection developed in coordination with her protégé, Carlton Varney.
Only Kindel possesses a century of scholarship and experience gleaned from 115 years of “best of kind” design and superior execution. Whether to the exacting standards of the Winterthur Museum, the iconic designs of Dorothy Draper, or the architectural precision of the Robert A.M. Stern architects, an exceptional team of designers, engineers and artisans are dedicated to uncompromising craftsmanship and relevant design. Relevant design has fostered their ability to create custom furniture. Their bench made, workshop and “made to order” practices allow for adaptation of dimensions, wood species and functionality of the entire product line. Kindel’s custom capabilities are limitless.
