WELCOME! We are The Industrial Cottage. My husband Quentin and I, and our 6 kids. Well, sort of 2 sets of 3! Three older ones, a big gap, then 3 younger ones. As you can see, from all the ages, genders, and races. We have our own special brand of crazy, and I LOVE it! Quentin and I have always been very entrepreneurial. We're both fearless, which is not always a good thing!
The Industrial Cottage was born in 2005 as a high end baby bedding manufacturer. I sewed my fingers off to get our products into retail stores across the country. Then in 2007 when the economy tanked and all the little specialty stores were going out of business, we made the hard choice to take a step back and regroup. We relocated to Virginia Beach to be near family and took a few years to get settled. During that time, we fostered and adopted 3 more kids! Insert a few crazy years there! Then we found Furniture! It is truly my passion. I love taking quality pieces, that just need a little love, updating and turning them into something beautiful that people will love all over again.
We are grateful to all of you for your love and support, and we're excited to see what the future holds. Thank you for following us on this journey!
