More about their mission:
Purposeful Design is a fully-functioning wood shop specializing in handmade furniture made from rough cut, Indiana hardwoods. Purposeful Design employs and trains men who have been without a home or who find it difficult to get a job – helping rebuild lives while teaching the craft of woodworking through positive and encouraging mentorship. Through several local strategic partners, Purposeful Design is able to stock our wood shop with a healthy supply of the finest Indiana hardwoods. This allows our products to remain one-of-a-kind while keeping costs low for our customers. We design and build a variety of furniture, each handmade by our skilled craftsmen. Much like the wood we use, each piece of furniture is unique and behind it is a unique story of a life restored.
