About Floyd

Floyd is changing the way people buy and engage with furniture. Our products are built around the idea that well-designed furniture should be accessible, long lasting, and ship to your door (not to mention beautiful!). We create innovative products that challenge the common convention of furniture and the experience buying it. Floyd is a venture-backed company with over $6m raised to date.

  • Create SolidWorks parts, assemblies, and drawings ready for manufacturing release
