The new LLC, Kindred Heirloom Collection, is the company’s first furniture and home goods brand for the average consumer. The collection includes chairs, tables, bed frames and more. Each piece will be made of Missouri walnut or white oak with multiple stain options.

“The collection will have the same ownership make up as Goebel & Co. Furniture,” Owner, Martin Goebel said. “The pieces will be manufactured using the Goebel facility and will use machinery that was financed through the STL Partnership and the EDA loan.”

Goebel & Co. Furniture located in North St. Louis, is proud to list Chieftainess Melambeka, Tribal Queen of Zambia, Nike, Bayer and local hospitality clients such as Urban Chestnut Brewing Co., Grace Meat + Three as some of their clients.

The Kindred Heirloom Collection will debut in April at the International Spring Furniture Market, a large home furnishings industry trade show, in High Point North Carolina.
