James+James, a handcrafted hardwood furniture company headquartered in Springdale, Ark., today announced it has been ranked No. 964 on the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing private companies. The company is also listed as No. 85 in the consumer products category and No. 5 in Arkansas.
The Inc. 5000 is regularly compared to the Fortune 500 list, without the publicly traded companies. Previous Inc. 5000 honorees include Microsoft, Patagonia, Pandora, Zappos, Under Armour and more.
“We’re proud to be one of the fastest-growing privately-owned furniture companies in the country,” said James Smith, co-founder of James+James. “When we started this business more than 10 years ago, we tapped into a consumer demand that wasn’t being met by the furniture industry at the time. Since then, our continued expansion has been driven by a willingness to innovate, and we have no intention of slowing down.”
Smith also states, ““Many of our larger competitors have started to take notice of what our little garage-started company has been doing. Our team is on fire, and over the next five years, we’re going to be making a lot of noise in the furniture industry. Being named to the Inc. 5000 is but the first milestone in a long-tail strategy that bridges building a global brand with meeting our customer’s demands on digital engagement, shorter delivery times, and affordable heirloom-quality real-wood furniture that will be handed down generationally.”
