David Ellison & Scotty Menesini-Lorimer Workshop
Entrepreneur David Ellison, created Lorimer Workshop due to his lifelong fascination with antique handmade furniture. His interest in tables traces back to his childhood in Scotland. No matter his day job, he kept his passion for building and restoring at the forefront of his mind. In 2007 he left a 30-year corporate career to pursue his dream of building affordable handcrafted wooden tables.
The Lorimer Workshop is located in the heart of industrial Providence, Rhode Island. David and his team are committed to designing and building distinctive, quality, hand crafted farm tables, conference tables, maintenance free restaurant tables and office desks using as much repurposed wood and materials as possible.
Lead designer, Scotty Menesini, will join David in the conversation.
