Husband and wife team Kim and Steve Murphy know how to embrace adversity and turn it into a positive opportunity. After a flood in 2001 destroyed Kim and Steve’s home and its contents, their search began for quality, hand-crafted furniture made in the USA. Their furniture journey throughout Houston was unsuccessful, but an idea that would transform their home and careers was born. This is where The Amish Craftsman’s journey begins!
At the time, Kim worked as an environmental consultant and Steve was in the advertising business. However, both Kim and Steve always dreamed of having a small, locally owned family business. Kim’s brother, Darren, had perfect timing as he mentioned to the couple about his amazing furniture buying experience with Amish builders. A lightbulb went off for Kim and Steve and the pieces began to fall into place. Fast forward to December of 2006 when The Amish Craftsman first opened its doors.
Kim, Steve, and their adorably sweet sons, Declan and Arlen, are devoted Aggies and Houstonians.
