Paul Downs Custom Conference Tables
Paul Downs started making furniture in 1986 in a one-room shop in Philadelphia. We now operate out of 33,000 square feet in Bridgeport, PA, and have 22 employees. Most of our work is done for commercial clients, as we specialize in modern conference tables and office furniture, and we do a few residential jobs every year as well.
How We Operate
We are a custom shop: a big room, piles of wood, lots of tools, and skilled craftspeople building whatever you require. This kind of operation has been around since ancient times, but has always been a reflection of the current state of manufacturing. Our modern conference table experts combine the latest tools and techniques with traditional methods to bring you the best of the past and the future.
Our aim is to provide beautiful, durable, and practical furniture that you’ll love at a reasonable price. We are happy to answer questions of any type, so if you can’t find what you need on our FAQ page, then feel free to contact us. We’re not a huge company, so you will speak to a real person when you call.
