Design X Manufacturing Inc. started in a two-car garage in 1987. Steve and Bob would manufacture under a concept that we can build anything. Bob would create space plans and furniture drawings dealing with the clients and Steve would oversee manufacturing of the products and designs.
In 1989 we moved to a 5,000 square foot industrial building in Old Saybrook selling salon equipment from a storefront showroom. At that time, we became the Connecticut distributor for the largest salon equipment manufacturer in the USA.
In 1994, we received a request from a large hair salon corporation to manufacture thirty stores of salon equipment. At that time we hired twenty-seven employees to manufacture, and purchased a 16,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility. For the next ten years, we became exclusive in design and engineering for all of their high-end custom furniture.
To date, we have created a library of over 57,000 unique and different designs. Design X designs have been in numerous salons that won Modern Salon Magazine's "Salon of the Year" over 26 times in the past 30 years.
In 2002, Design X began selling on the Internet via salonfurniture.com, salondesign.com and receptiondesks.com. In 2005, Bob traveled to Italy and China in search of the latest of global hair salon design. Upon return, Design X became the USA representative for over 15 high-end salon furniture companies all whom have very unique designs.
Since 2005, Design X focus has been expanding the made-to-order high-end design of salon furniture. At least once a month, Design X has been featured or published in a national industry magazine.
