We exist to provide high quality, environmentally sustainable, handmade furniture.
Our Story

Clint and Kelly Harp founded Harp Design Co. with the dual focus of creating and giving. Our great hope is that each piece of handmade furniture brings people together in your home, carving out space for family meals, work, art projects, or sharing a cup of coffee. Love, laughter, and connection—these are things we all need, and the vision behind every piece we create.

Not only do we want our furniture to connect soul to soul, but to connect soul to the Earth. Harp Design Co. is committed to caring for the Earth by creating environmentally sustainable products whenever possible, most made with 100% recycled and reclaimed wood. Many of our pieces are a patchwork of pine, oak, mahogany, walnut, poplar, and other reclaimed woods rescued from old buildings, fallen trees and scrap piles.

This blending of materials is a purposeful reflection of human families, partnerships, friendships, and communities.

By nature, each piece of wood we find has a flaw, be it nail holes, scrapes, or scars. We appreciate the provenance and character of our wood and purposely do not cover these flaws during the building process. In this way, each HDC piece tells a unique story and remains connected with its past. At Harp Design Co, we believe that rescuing something discarded and recreating it into something beautiful is both good for the Earth and deeply cathartic for the soul. Our mission is to bring you not only a beautiful product, but a deeper connection to the Earth and those with whom you share it.
