Scofield Designs & Metalworks
I was born in Manhattan, NY in 1979 and moved to Akron, Ohio as a young boy. I met my wife Stacey (Owens) during my high school years. My wife and our kids were born here.
I enjoyed art as a child, always drawing cartoon characters. In high school, I decided to take some welding classes to kick start my career path. I always had an interest in building things and working with metal intrigued me. Welding seemed a natural fit. Throughout my training and working with metal, I have gained a lot of experience with many types of metalwork as well as a variety of metals.
There were times that Stacey was struggling to find things for the house... furniture, lamps, wall hangings. We often had trouble finding items that we both liked. Most of the things we found were mass produced, lacking style or creativity, or of low quality. Eventually we decided I could make what we wanted much easier than we could find it somewhere else. We often discussed taking the leap and starting our own business providing imaginative, quality furnishings and accessories to people who felt the same as we did. We were confident we weren't alone in our dislike of the bland mass produced furnishings most commonly available.
Eventually, my work situation became more and more unstable. This made it pretty easy to make the decision to start up Scofield Designs and Metalworks. We've been working on our own since 2008 and feel really good about the quality and design of the pieces we've been able to produce up to this point. We are anxious to continue to grow our client list and expand our sales area. If there is any service we can provide for you, please don't hesitate to contact us.
