We are a custom furniture company. Standard 41 is just six generations and a few years old. It all started in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, with Raible father and sons working as furniture makers, cabinetmakers, instrument makers and, legend would have it, chicken thieves.
In a fit of independence, Andrew Raible, the sixth generation, explored advertising, graphic design and other respectable jobs before going back to grad school (Pratt Institute) to study furniture and Industrial design. He was back to the inevitable wood shop.
