The original Detroit Murphy Chair Company manufacturing plant moved to Owensboro, Kentucky in 1916 and continued to prosper in Owensboro delivering hundreds of thousands of handcrafted chairs to its customers around the world.

Intent on not losing the rich history and reputation for time-honored products, quality manufacturing, and outstanding customer service, the company is now under direct management in Owensboro by 5th generation Murphy family member Stephen Michael Johnson, M.J. Murphy’s Great-Great Grandson.
