Los Angeles, CA. (August 2015) — Posse Furniture is a furniture brand based out of Los Angeles that has a passion for design and building furniture with quality craftsmanship. Posse Furniture is looking forward to the opening of its sixth showroom in Atlanta at Grizzel and Mann. This showroom adds to their showroom locations in New York, Chicago, Florida, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
At the essence of Posse Furniture is the desire to create pieces that are unparalleled in design, that supersedes the high end result that is expected from Posse Furniture. More importantly the essence of Posse Furniture is the ability to deliver a product that fascinates the owner of the piece.
Tour their 7,000 square foot facility in Los Angeles and you will see mortise and tenons, glue-ups, and lots of planning. In an era when manufacturing is done overseas, the fact that there is a highly successful furniture firm based in the city and using local craftsmen is outstanding.
Posse sells to the trade only and works with top tier interior designers, which allows Posse to know what the exact high end result should look like. The Posse brand is about high quality products and that perfect imperfection of hand built craftsmanship. Stylistically the brand features clean modern and traditional designs, but they are rooted in solid woods and traditional craftsmanship. Posse is known for unique and quality surface treatments with a sort of sleek solidness.
The founder and designer, Constance Posse, was born and raised outside of Philadelphia on the “Main Line.” Constance Posse’s success comes from hard work and learning her thriving business from the ground up. Her inspiration is her father who she enjoyed doing wood projects with in their home as a child. Constance Posse carefully built a brand that would eventually populate private residences and work directly with all the top interior designers.
Building a successful business from the ground up requires talent, hard work, passion, luck, and above all an understanding of a client’s needs and wants. Constance loves working with interior designers and seeing a design go from a sketch to the final product, but the part of the process that excites Constance the most is the carpentry because it is the bones. There are times when the design idea comes before the materials, and there are also times when materials come before the design. Each design evolves and is skillfully mastered before a piece is finalized which Constance ensures by creating a sample for the piece and works closely with the interior designer to ensure that the end result is exactly what it is expected to be.
The Posse brand believes in strong customer service and goes above and beyond to ensure that each piece is outstanding. Those qualities and belief system are what makes the Posse brand an outstanding brand along with the team that Constance has created which she considers her greatest success in her career.
Some of the highlights of the Posse Furniture Collection are the beautifully designed Christopher Armoire which is hand made by Posse, wrapped in leather panels and can be wrapped in real parchment as well.
