Born in New York, Joel Calderone moved west as a child and grew up in the majesty of California’s wine country. Surrounded by the natural beauty of Mendocino County, Joel was at home in its serene environment and rural landscape.

It is this foundation that has given Joel his truly unique and diverse design perspective. Since an early age, Joel has had an unparalleled passion for design.

During college, Joel honed his craft as a toy designer and was responsible for developing hugely successful products for Mattel and Hasbro. After graduation, yearning to pursue design in a product that has always been his calling, Joel began working with one of the furniture industry’s leading design firms where he learned the intricacies and nuance of the furniture design business. Joel started Calderone Designs, Inc. in 2004 and specializes in residential and hospitality furniture design. Joel has developed international lines for large retail chains in Asia.
