Get to know the 2018 New York Innovators,
& Bob Williams
In 1989, Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams created a small upholstery company in the rural town of Taylorsville, North Carolina. Today, the two business partners head an internationally renowned company with close to a million square feet of modern manufacturing and warehouse space. We now offer a full range of home furnishings, including eco-friendly upholstery, tables and storage, lighting, rugs, bed linens, accessories, window treatments and art. In addition to 30+ Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Signature Stores, our company has an e-commerce division and a hospitality division, selling to top hotel chains and eateries.
Although they hail from different backgrounds and contribute their expertise in different ways, Mitchell and Bob uphold a shared vision to make the world a more comfortable place: for all.
This vision is true within our company – where they have created a corporate culture that respects diversity, supports education, provides daycare and has been environmentally responsible since its inception – and in the greater community, where both are advocates for equality and human rights, actively supporting a wide range of charitable efforts.
