Philip Goold was born and raised in coastal Virginia. Growing up on the beach, he naturally took to surfing with neighborhood friends. He has been lucky enough to make a living through his lifelong passion for surfing, while traveling the world. As he spent downtime at home he gained an interest in making things and found a new attraction to woodworking. Philip completed the Furniture Intensive course at The Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, ME where he learned classic and modern furniture making skills.
Goold Furniture & Design was developed to design and create pieces with thoughtful and thorough craftsmanship to last generations. With an aesthetic to flow into contemporary coastal spaces, his work has influence from mid-century American and Scandinavian styles.
