Can we start out by saying that we think the world of the owner at James + James?
We first met James Smith when he was shooting video Christmas cards for families and then we recruited him to shoot and edit videos for our brand new (at the time) Doc Talk series with Mercy Health.
Then James (and his friend, James) shifted gears. He noticed there was a need for affordable, quality and real-wood furniture, so he tried his hand at another passion — furniture building. Now his start-up, James+James is one of the fastest growing furniture companies in the country.
James+James products are found in nearly every state from coast to coast. Job creation right here in the U.S. continues to remain a top priority. The company now provides work to over 20 team members and growing.
And just a few months ago, James + James opened a new retail store and it is a furniture showcase that’s filled with amazing home decor, lighting and gift options you don’t see in other places. They are headed to market soon and plan to come back with a HAUL. We can’t wait to see the new surprises in store!
We have to tell you, the retail location (at 4217 S. Thompson St. in Springdale, 1 mile north of the NWA Mall) is beautiful even without all the great furniture and accessories.
Here’s a little peek inside:
Here’s a video about their story. In it, James talks about the versatility of their hand-crafted furniture and how it has led them to selling to people living in all but two states in the U.S. (and lots of other countries) from penthouses in New York City to farmhouses in Illinois.
The retail store and showroom is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 7pm and Sunday from 12 to 5pm. In addition to the amazing tables and chairs, we’re partial to the lighting options at the retail store:
