The Lowdown 

HISTORY

Wadsworth Design had humble beginnings in a small work shed in Orem, Utah. In 1993, brothers Mark and Paul Wadsworth inadvertently started the company while designing and building modern furniture pieces for Mark’s senior project to complete his BFA design degree at Brigham Young University. After graduating, Mark was hired and taught as an adjunct design professor at Brigham Young University for 5 years while building a furniture portfolio and a clientele.

Paul’s education and experience as a machinist/gunsmith coupled with three impactful years of art education that both brothers enjoyed in high school, proved to be a viable combination for success. 

Hard work and never turning away a challenge paved the way for bigger and better business opportunities. That growth necessitated building a team of skilled managers, designers and craftsmen who shared their same passion, integrity and work ethic to service our valued clients. Inspired design, craftsmanship and high value are paramount in all we do.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

Our approach to business relationships is predicated on the following principles which produce the best results for our valued customers.

  • IntegrityIntegrity is being truthful and trustworthy, and expecting the same of others as well. Integrity is DOING what we say we will.
  • Quality- Quality is not just using the best materials, it's our uncompromising attitude of designing, manufacturing at the highest level.
  • Hard Work- Our commitment to honest hard work enables us to push through difficult challenges. We accept “impossible” tasks. 
  • Commitment- We make and keep commitments to our customer. Our word is our bond.
  • Communication- We listen first for understanding. It is self discipline and mutual respect that guide what we say and how we say it.
  • Gratitude- We readily show appreciation and return the kindness of others. It is our sincere desire to give back.
  • Unity- We seek common goals, and work together. We put the well being of the team ahead of our individual ambitions.
  • Praise- No good work should ever go unnoticed. We value both the extraordinary and the every day accomplishments of our team.

MISSION

As designers and craftsmen, we do more than just design interiors and manufacture furniture and fixtures. Our aim is to inspire. When someone enters your business they walk into your very personal world or brand. That environment, especially the details – conveys who you are and what you stand for to everyone who enters. It's not just somewhere to sit, or meet, it is an experience, and if it's done with purpose it can be a very powerful experience. With every line, form, material, infusion of light and color, we give you the ability to make a statement – to show off, to welcome, and inspire everyone who walks through your door. This creates value and ROI for you, our clients. At Wadsworth Design, we exist to serve you and create your success through that experience.

We continually strive to contribute to a cleaner and better environment. Some of our efforts include:

  • Designing and engineering to create best yield of raw materials
  • Recycling all reclaimable materials from the manufacturing processes
  • Utilizing raw materials with recycled content

Client Feedback

"Ve and I were so pleased with the care, the attention to detail, and the integrity of both Jairus and Cayden during our white glove. The fact that they both have been in the shop building our (Code Ninjas) furniture and looking at everything on our end in such a professional manner was so awesome to see and we loved having them in Charlotte. We are so very grateful for the both of these gentlemen for taking care of us and am proud that they are on your team. Thank you for sending them and I hope that you will read out this email to the both of them as sometimes in the rush of our busy lives, we forget to slow down and say “Thank You” and “A Job Well-Done!”

With Best Regards,

Anjali and Vivek Dighe

"It is with great pleasure I endorse Mark and Wadsworth Design. 

I have worked with them for almost 25 years. My first project with them was a small remodel of my business in Provo, Utah. Because of that little project, I asked them to help me out with the design of our very first Paul Mitchell school in Southern California. My business partner is a John Paul DeJoria, and our plan 20 years ago was to hopefully, one day open seven locations. We now have 110 locations, and we have used Wadsworth for every single one of those locations. 

I’m now entering another new business franchise opportunity, and of course, Wadsworth is involved."
