Every piece of  Furniture should tell a story

Located in New Orleans, and founded by Alex Geriner, Doorman Designs creates unique, storied furniture for today’s modern homes. The idea was born in 2009 when Alex created a bed using reclaimed wood salvaged from a Hurricane Katrina-damaged cottage. Doorman Designs is inspired by the history, lyricism and landscape of the Gulf South. In their workshop along the Mississippi River, Alex and his team of artisans meticulously execute his vision using reclaimed and responsibly-sourced materials including centuries-old cypress, pine, ash wood, iron and pressed tin.

Made and designed in one of America’s most evocative cities, each piece possesses an individual character and distinct patina, imbued with history, built with pride, finished and shipped directly to you. Alex’s work will become an heirloom treasured for generations. Let it convey its story to you.
