Our Story


Our purpose is different from the purpose of other furniture companies. We believe Designmaster Furniture exists to feed God’s sheep. But what does that really mean?

Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him a third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.”
–John 21:17

Our purpose can be viewed from several perspectives:

  • We feed the stakeholders of Designmaster spiritually by praying with them and for them and by sharing how God is at work in our lives.
  • We feed our fellow employees and sales representatives physically with work, so that they can provide for their families.
  • We feed one another emotionally each day in our work environment by reflecting God’s love and grace through positive and encouraging interaction.
  • We feed our employees intellectually and professionally by helping them develop their God-given potential through training and coaching.
  • We feed Christian ministries financially by tithing from the profits of Designmaster.

Eating together as a family used to be the rule; now it is the exception. It is our desire that God might use Designmaster chairs to encourage families and friends to eat and connect together as they gather around the table to share their hearts.


Simply put, our vision is to be the best at what we do.


We believe our values clearly express the essence of our identity - who we are and who we desire to be. Out of the personal relationships we have with Jesus Christ, we choose to value:

  • Obedience through prayer - Prayer brings us each closer to God and helps us to better understand His will for our lives. Once we know His will, we want to be obedient to follow it, because we know His plan is best

  • Godly Relationships - God desires for us to be in relationships with others by reflecting His love and grace. We listen to, care for, and serve the people central to our purpose of feeding God’s sheep: our employees, sales representatives, suppliers, dealers, and those who buy our chairs.

  • Truth - We believe in open and authentic communication with those we serve, both internally and externally. We want to be honest, ethical, genuine, and transparent in the decisions we make in order to develop trust throughout our community

  • Quality work - We want our work to be accurate and timely, with a goal of no errors or defects. Designmaster employees take pride in their craftsmanship because they recognize the part they each play in our purpose.

  • Freedom with accountability - We want the Designmaster community to demonstrate a healthy balance between feeling empowered in its responsibilities, while staying connected to its teammates through encouraging and supportive interaction.
