Stylex Inc

In 1956, the Golden family launched Stylex to address opportunities they perceived for more refined seating. Their idea was not simply to be a better seating manufacturer, but also to understand seating better... how it is used and how it complements its surrounding environment. Today, the company is owned and run by Bruce and John Golden. While much has changed over more than 50 years, the foundation and vision on which the company was built remains. Our goal is to apply our experience together with an enterprising, inventive spirit. There's no 'second string' at Stylex, and everyone from our CEO to our receptionist works with customers, specifiers, and designers every day. That, in turn, lets us better understand and more rapidly refine the aesthetics, performance, value, and service that create truly engaging products.
