Our manufacturing began in Brooklyn, NY July 1954 when two craftsmen founded Creative Metal Products, Inc. They put their talents to forge iron and brass in order to supply Cocktail Tables, Bakers Racks, and Chairs for the New York City carriage trade of Lord & Taylor, B. Altman, and Bloomingdales. From these humble beginnings evolved the family owned and operated Creative Metal & Wood, Inc. The factory is no longer in Brooklyn; in fact, after a move across the Hudson River in 1964, New Jersey became home for a 27 year stretch until 1991. It was then that the decision was made to move factory equipment, personnel, and materials to our current and permanent home into the heart of furniture country, Thomasville, North Carolina.
But geography has not been the only change during our 50 year journey. What had begun as a small collection of steel and brass designs has over the Last 30 years expanded to include Bakers Racks, Etegeres, Wood Chests, and Buffets, Dining tables, Cocktail and Lamp tables, Consoles, Beds of Steel and Carved Wood, Chairs, Bar Stools, Benches, Fabric Wraps, and Mirrors of Wood Frame. Most recently we have added Contemporary Bedroom and Dining pieces of Exotic Wood Veneers.
We now catalogue well over 600 styles within 20 different categories of home furnishings and continue to grow. And yet throughout all of our growth and change we have never strayed from our roots as a manufacturer in the true sense of the word. Unlike many of the “buyers and re-sellers” of today that outsource the actual hand labor and skill that goes into building a piece of furniture we are unique. We, at Creative Metal & Wood & Mirror take great pride in the fact that within a single factory facility we are able to fuse the abilities of :
- A fully functioning and staffed Metal / Blacksmith Shop
- Wood / Cabinetry Shop
- Finishing Operation (Spray and Hand)
- Upholstery Department
- Shipping and Inspections
By actually building our products individually and from start to finish we are able to offer levels of versatility and quality control that other “manufacturers” could only hope for.
Therefore, as you consider Creative Metal & Wood & Mirror and our product line we encourage you to remember that almost every item you see will be available in a virtually limitless range of size, shape, finish, and even design variations. And if you don’t see the item that will suit your needs within our extensive catalogue we welcome the opportunity to create or supply custom products for you!
