Richardson is a true bar stool manufacturer. We operate a wood shop, metal shop, and upholstery shop all under one roof where we manufacture the furniture that we sell. We take 2x4s and plywood and cut our parts. We take our cut parts and assemble them in our wood shop and built the inner components of our seats. We shape our backs with a band saw. All of our sewing and piping is made by our sewers. We prepare the vinyl for our upholsterers. We have a lot of difficult upholstery patterns like diamond tufting and channel tufting. We also do a lot of decorative nail head trim. These skills take a long time to build. Many other companies import from China and maybe change the seat out and add glides. Our furniture is made in Chicago using materials sourced almost entirely of domestic components.
