Gat Caperton grew up in West Virginia. He lived in a contemporary home surrounded by tall trees and mountains. He and his brother spent many days playing along a small creek that wound through the valley behind their house. Gat was a year older and four inches taller than his brother, and he saw the creek first and quickly proclaimed ownership. His brother protested; Gat boasted. Giving in to the fatigue created by chasing two boys under the age of five, their parents simply relented, “Okay, it’s Gat’s Creek.” The name stuck and actually appears on maps now. His brother eventually and kindly forgave him. Today, Gat Creek lives in their minds as a home of youth, nature and discovery, the essence of furniture they make.
Gat CapertonI began designing furniture in 1996 after purchasing a small furniture manufacturing company. The company, located in his home state, has built beautiful antique reproductions for over 40 years. Believing that great craftsmanship need not be limited to traditional furniture. While the furniture bears his name, it really comes from the dedicated work of over 175 people that share a passion for woodworking, nature and home.
They build Gat Creek furniture specifically for each customer. They don’t import, and they don’t run an assembly line. Each piece is hand-made from solid Appalachian Cherry and personally signed by the person who builds it.
Over the past five years they have won a number of design, environmental and workplace safety awards. The award they cherish most is our customers’ trust. They hold home sacred and hope to have the opportunity to share some of their craft with their customers and their customers' home.
