When DESIRON made its humble debut in 1997, it would have been difficult to imagine the success and celebrity the brand has achieved in the last two decades. DESIRON’s first designs-- three metal tables-- were sold by founder Frank Carafo at a flea market on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Carafo was working as an analyst at prestigious data and analytics company Dun & Bradstreet at the time, leaving little room in his busy schedule to work on developing his furniture designs. Much to Carafo’s surprise, his metal tables were an instant success. His modest stock sold out three weeks in a row, and he gained a lot of attention from the the people of New York and from around the world attending the market. Carafo was able to quit his job that same year, turning his attention to furniture design full time. Today, DESIRON has grown into one of the best known and best loved American furniture companies, but much about the company has remained the same. DESIRON still produces high-quality, hand-crafted furniture, expanded from tables to include retro hanging lights, modern sofas, sleek office credenzas, and much more. Whether you’re looking for a cozy entryway bench or a unique console table, DESIRON has plenty of options to fit any style.
