Howard Miller

The Howard Miller Company, a family-owned operation, officially opened its doors in 1926, but its roots in American manufacturing run even deeper. Founder and namesake Howard Miller learned the furniture manufacturing business from his father, Herman Miller, who in the early 1900s took advantage of the booming furniture industry in West Michigan to start a new company while simultaneously (and successfully) running another. Howard inherited his father’s ambition and business acumen and would draw heavily on both to make his own company a success.
