Howard Miller was founded in 1926 and is still family owned in it’s third generation. Starting in 1947, the Howard Miller Clock Company produced scores of modern wall clocks and table clocks designed by George Nelson Associates. At that time, Nelson was Director of Design at Herman Miller Furniture Company. They also produced Nelson’s “Bubble Lighting” through the late 1970s, eventually selling the business in the early 1980s. Howard Miller Clock Company also produced other Nelson Associates products; spice cabinets, pull-down wall mounted vanities and desks, a vertical hanging vinyl strip system called “Ribbon Wall”, a complete line of fireplace tools, and other hanging lighting. One of the last series of modern clocks were the “Swing Timers”, a group of at least 18 inexpensive all plastic clocks produced in the late 1960s & designed by Arthur Umanoff Associates. Umanoff also designed Plexiglas floor and wall clocks, a series of wood clocks called “Natural Classics”, and “Day Timers” which were plastic wall clocks with day and dates. Nathan George Horwitt designed the “Museum Clock” in the 1970’s. The final George Nelson Associates series of clocks were the 1984 post-modern “Tempo ’21 Series”. Grandfather clocks did not become a part of the product line until the 1960’s and they have since acquired Ridgeway, Heckman and Woodmark companies. Today, they are the world’s leading clock company and a respected brand name in fine specialty furnishings such as curio cabinets, wine & bar furnishings, custom storage cabinets, and SmartMoves adjustable height desks.
