After growing up in his family's furniture business, Tom Barber studied architecture and sculpture and began designing furniture. "I started out eating sawdust at age 12 in the factory and it is in my blood now... It's a wood thing!"
With over 40 years experience, including 10 years as a Vice President of Operations overseeing manufacturing and product development for a major manufacturer, Tom understands commercial furniture from all sides: design, manufacturing, and installation.
In 1994 Tom founded Barber Design Products.
