Hundreds of skilled craftspeople weave their finely honed talents together to create our fine furniture. Lumberjacks, toolmakers, carvers, cleaners, packers, truck drivers, logistics managers, technology specialists, salespeople, trainers, designers, and managers all form the architecture of Fine Furniture Design™. And all are artists, in their own right, who craft fine furniture from traditional, classic, and contemporary eras. A few experienced individuals stand at the helm leading the company in day-to-day operations.

Larry Moh, Founder of Fine Furniture Design™, was internationally known in the home furnishings industry as an entrepreneur and as a pioneer of innovative manufacturing in China. He created Universal Flooring and Universal Furniture, one of the largest furniture companies in the world. Both companies were sold to Masco Corporation in 1989. After a brief retirement, Mr. Moh launched Plantation Timber Products in 1997, and by 2000 he had put the wheels in motion for the debut of Fine Furniture Design™.
Mr. Moh was as well-known for his philanthropic work as for his business acumen. Several generous scholarship funds designated for use at US colleges and universities bear the Moh name. The most recent scholarship was named in honor of his wife Celia and provides tuition, room and board, and books for students in collegiate home furnishings programs. (www.mohscholarship.org)

His foresight, entrepreneurial spirit and commitments have built strong companies and have supported worthy educational initiatives. We will endeavor to build the Fine Furniture Design™ organization, while continuing to deliver on our collective promise of quality and value.
