Our Story

Photo of Jana Garvin - Founder of Tandem Arbor

Founded in 2015, Tandem Arbor was created to address the shortcomings of the ready-made furniture industry: lack of customization, poor quality, and extensive lead times. With a background in commercial interior design, and an on-going need for large quantities of lounge furniture in a very specific brand color, I repeatedly found that vision was being sacrificed due to the shortcomings of the readymade furniture business. When it came to buying upholstered seating, options were very limited. Finding fifty identical sofas in a brand's vintage leather, in five different lengths for each site, becoming almost impossible to source.

The demand for more variety among readymade furniture sent me to the furniture capital of the USA, High Point, NC. I was mesmerized by the assortment of products available and all of the talented craftsman. As an avid shopper, I couldn't believe that so much of this was not accessible to the everyday consumer.

Once we determined that we could successfully offer bespoke, high quality, affordable, American made furniture to the everyday consumer, Tandem Arbor was born. Tandem Arbor pairs quality engineering with technology, as a means to offer an extensive collection of custom made to order furniture. So we are here today to work with you to customize and build that perfect piece, that will also be the perfect fit.

Environmentally Responsible

With a strong focus on our carbon footprint we have engineered each piece to have a majority of components supplied domestically, and most of them are within a 75 mile radius. This includes the frames, foam, springs, cotton ticking, decking, fabrics, and packaging. Local suppliers mean local employment and reduced transportation costs and CO2 emissions.

Custom Made to Order

Our selection of silhouettes pares classic furniture styles down to their functional, beautiful essence, offering the choice of silhouette, product, size, and depth. Solve your design dilemma with a piece that fits your space, and then color it in with our versatile and durable upholstery options.

Handcrafted in the USA

Each piece is made-to-order to your exact specifications by local craftsmen in North Carolina using high quality, naturally based materials. We honor the art of making something by hand, and the quality that can only be achieved in this way.

Exceptional Value

We have a strong belief in the importance of basics and a solid foundation, so we have introduced an exclusive bespoke collection to help you realize your vision of a seating option in the perfect size, shape, and color. All of our furniture is completely customizable, designed and then benchmade.
