On this episode, host Ethan Abramson sits down with Martin Goebel, owner of the St. Louis, Missouri and Chicago, Illinois based furniture company Goebel & Co. Furniture.
As you will hear, Martin’s early furniture education was pretty impressive. But all the furniture pedigree in the world would have meant nothing if he didn’t take that knowledge and combine it with his own business knowhow, a roaring creative passion, and just plain hard work, to build his own company into the powerhouse it is today.
Along with his impressive set of furniture building skills he is also a scholar on the history of furniture manufacturing and he has drawn from both of those backgrounds to set his company apart from the rest
Follow along as we talk about blending old and new furniture making techniques, if getting press is really that important, when to talk contracts on a project, and much more. All with his Shop cats occasionally voicing their own opinions in the background.
