Don't worry you're in the right place! Gavco is now Makr Furniture

We are a proud Washington State manufacturer of furniture. All of the manufacturing of our products is done locally in Kent, Washington by a talented group of local craftsmen.

Our story began in 1984 with a simple piece of furniture: a student desk.

We designed and built the student desk out of a barn in the May Valley, outside Issaquah, envisioning our desks as places to sit, learn, and grow. We knew our customers and designed and built with passion and a dedication to quality and durability.

Our customer base grew and we moved from the barn into the Kent Valley, where we expanded our line of products. Our expansion meant more options for schools, universities, medical offices, hospitals, law firms, high-tech companies, and many other businesses.

Our customers asked for non-standard pieces, handing us drawings on napkins or describing what they wanted. And our response? Why not? We take pride in building custom workspaces without making them cost-prohibitive.
Through innovation, growth, and expansion, we’ve never lost sight of our roots and what it takes to build quality furniture: understanding and caring for our customers. That same care goes into making every desk edge, every knob, every shelf – every piece that goes from our studio to your workspace.

What can we build for you today?

Our Responsibility

Being an environmentally conscious company is continuous: we learn, do better, and affect change.

And as a manufacturing company, we are acutely aware of the potential impact on our natural environment and the responsibility—and pride—in minimizing that impact. Our awareness stems partly from the privilege of working and living in a part of our country abundant in natural resources and from great respect for those resources.

We strive to reduce and, eventually, eliminate the environmental impact of our manufacturing process.

From selecting our vendors and partners to our materials to reducing energy consumption, the steps we take to ensure the sustainability of resources are deep-seated in every step of how we create and build furniture.
