Scott Jordan Furniture was founded by Scott Jordan as a small cabinet shop in 1980 using basic fabrication tools including saws, planers, and hand tools. Today, the company still employs these techniques but also incorporates computer-based drafting, computer-aided design (CAD), and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to create one-of-a-kind, highly customizable furniture that can be created as singular objects or in a series.
