An 'Industrial Farmhouse' in Chattanooga Creates Custom Furniture

While the term “industrial farmhouse” may seem to be a contradiction, for Mark Oldham it’s a hedge against corporate uniformity. Technology has enabled furniture makers to produce hundreds of tables and chairs that are all exactly alike. It’s very efficient, but for Mark Oldham and his crew it’s “boring.”

At The Industrial Farmhouse, they produce individual, one-of-a-kind pieces, but say the pieces don’t cost any more than mass produced furniture.
