From a humble beginning to a brand

More than 30 years of dedication to his craft…

In 1986, Bill Lancaster needed a new sofa. Having gained a bit of woodworking knowledge from his Grandfather, he decided to build one himself. He transformed his two bedroom apartment into a make-shift workshop and the very first Lancaster sofa was constructed.

More than 30 years of dedication to his craft, assembling a talented team of craftspeople, and building relationships with vendors and clients has transformed what was then a dream into a brand.

LANCASTER now represents a standard of excellence in the industry, continuing to exceed expectations in construction and design.

Bill’s latest passion involves participating in the re-development and incorporation of The Furniture Academy of The Triad. Bill graduated from the original academy more than thirty years ago, held at Guilford Technical Community College. He states, “This new program will allow us, and our local industry partners, to elevate and maintain the high level of quality that our customers expect from a domestically produced product. Continuing to train prospective employees allows us to invest in our industry and enrich our community.”
