About Davis Furniture Company:
Upon the death of his father in 1967, John T. Davis, Jr., became president and the company was renamed Davis Furniture Industries, Incorporated. During the 1970s, a new approach toward manufacturing office and executive furniture began to take shape, and the corporation progressed to the third generation. Danny Davis, the current president, joined the company in 1977. Ashley Davis Williams and Brian Davis, Danny’s daughter and son, are the fourth generation of Davises to carry on the tradition.
A new direction in product design and development took place in the late 70s through licensing European designs. Davis approached Driepunkt of Germany and forged a licensing agreement by which the company was to manufacture German products in North America. This new approach was instituted as a means to find better contemporary designs which would combine both quality and function. To date, Davis has had licensee agreements with many different European manufacturers. In turn, Davis has licensed their designs to other manufacturers in Europe, Italy, Australia, Japan, and Switzerland.
