It all started when…
In 2000, Loren Sherman, a theatrical set designer in Manhattan for over 20 years, moved into a new apartment with his two young children and started looking into murphy beds to help create additional space. After researching all available options, he thought “I would really like to have my dining table and my bed on the same footprint in this bright living room: there must be a way to make that happen.”
Months later, the first TableBed was built. In 2001, Loren founded Inova and began to manufacture and sell his patented TableBed.
The company has since evolved to offer a large array of multi-functional furniture solutions for many different markets.
Over the last five years, we have grown significantly with the great help of the lean manufacturing principles. We consider this philosophy a great guide in creating a workplace that continues to evolve. Our goals and motivations here at Inova are driven by our motto: “Zero Defects” and “No Customer Complaints”.
In 2016 we expanded our factory and offices from 18,000 to 36,000 sq. ft. In 2017, we doubled it again, to 72,000 sq. ft. As of 2019, our team has grown to nearly 100 employees.
