134 FALL 2015 tastemaker F URNITURE TITANS MITCHELL GOLD AND BOB WILLIAMS met in a New York City bar in 1989. "That was back in the days before the Inter- net, when to meet someone, you had to go to a bar," laughs Gold. At the time, Gold was a sales executive in the fur- niture industry, while Williams worked as a graphic designer at Seventeen magazine. "We knew right away that we wanted to work on something together," Williams recalls. In their newly opened Natick signature store, the two relax into a wide sofa upholstered in soft gray cotton and tell their story. Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams is an international brand with over $150 million in annual sales. Featured in movies and design magazines and on TV, their home furnishings collection, loved for its Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams furnishings celebrate fine living. Below, the sleek Hunter sofa in spruce relaxed and modern styling, is sold in a growing chain of stores as far afield as Seoul and Dubai. Located in Tay- lorsville, North Carolina, the company, which proudly celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2014, employs over 750 people, the county's largest employer and a model of enlightened workplace practice. Mitchell is now married to Tim Gold, while Bob's partner is Stephen Heavner, but the two are still best friends, as committed as ever to their business partnership and to a shared vision.
