The KARV Team
So much of today’s furniture is made almost entirely by machine using low cost and substandard materials. KARV was founded with the sole purpose of bucking that trend. KARV was founded by entrepreneurs from the furniture industry with the goal to provide reasonably priced, superior quality products on a consistent basis by using simple, modern designs and time-tested craftsmanship.
Since its founding, the team has expanded to include seasoned managers, design and marketing experts, and expert artisans. Each KARV valet is hand-made in the USA by one of our master artisans, led by Jacob Sorenson out of our Park City, UT studio.
Jacob Sorenson is an artist, designer, and furniture maker. Trained as a woodworking craftsman in the Pacific Northwest he later formalized his education with a Masters of Fine Arts degree from Virginia Commonwealth University in furniture design. Now in the mountains of Utah, Jacob exhibits work nationally that embodies his dedication to art, craft, and design. Jacob uses his skills to refine designs and make KARV products come to life. Jacob also designs the production methods and materials that make KARV products consistently exceptional.
