Horse drawn carriages and furniture seem to be an odd combination, but it worked for Dunbar. They began as a manufacturer of custom horse drawn buggies for the gentry class. When autos took over the roads, Dunbar wisely switched to manufacturing fine furniture and became one of America’s premier fine furnishings companies. In 1931 destiny brought young designer Edward J. Wormley to Dunbar and the rest as they say, is history. Wormley brought a global presence and design to Dunbar ushering them into the mid-20th century and making the Dunbar name synonymous with high quality and good design. Together they became icons of 20th century winning numerous awards and accolades. Dunbar today continues this legacy.
