Durham is known for its creativity and for being a hub of entrepreneurialism. It is also a place filled with people who appreciate authenticity and value integrity. Those traits tend to foster synergistic relationships between local businesses. Just such union has recently been formed to bring to market a line of children's furniture both designed and manufactured in Durham.
Mas Sato Designs has expanded operations of its modern children’s furniture line by partnering with Phillip Fletcher of Durham Bookcases in Downtown Durham. The company has added production capabilities using local craftspeople to build and assemble originally designed furniture pieces. In the past year, Mas Sato Designs has launched a new website to improve availability and ease of ordering. It has also added a flat-ship option to expand its offerings and lower shipping costs.
Mas Sato Designs began as a small independent craft maker and quickly saw international demand and sales growth for high-quality modern children’s furniture. It provides locally manufactured furniture that is sturdy, modern and elegant for children ages 1-10.
