I founded Renaissance Old World, Inc. in 1987 with a vision to create a company with a commitment to a rich, warm comfortable style that is timeless, beautiful and uncompromising on quality. Started in Southern California, the company moved and enjoyed beautiful Monterey county for a decade before the company's growth led to relocation to a new facility in Fresno, CA in 2000. In 2011 we began production in a small factory in Central Asia on a Lean model of low volume – high value products. Our facility there utilizes state of the art 3D solid modeling CAD software and CNC equipment married with our traditional hand-processes from previous centuries but brought into the modern era and honed and perfected by our artisans and me over the last 25 years. We produce all aspects of handcrafted Old World interiors - complete lines of exceptional Flooring, Doors, Cabinetry, furniture and Millwork. We invite you to bring the warmth and elegance of our wood heirlooms into your home or business and to enjoy them for generations. We sincerely hope they bring you as much beauty and enjoyment in your home as we had in creating them.
Our company logo has some fancy words in Latin that express our core values: “Soli Deo Gloria” expresses our faith in and desire to glorify the creator God who is the source of all beauty and love. “Veritas, Forma and Industria” - meaning “Truth, Beauty and Industry” - are values directly related to his character. Truth is the bedrock of our relationships with our customers, artisans, suppliers, government and God. Commitment to beauty governs all we design and produce – we want what we create to reflect the beauty and splendor of the natural world around us. Industry is the classical virtue of diligent work combined with careful thought to produce enduring products in a way that minimizes waste of resources and protects the environment.
