Martin was traditionally trained in cabinet and furniture making at age 19 in Fort Bragg, California at the College of the Redwoods. Returning to Saint Louis, Martin spent the next 6 years creating custom pieces for clients on commission while completing a Bachelors of Fine Arts (BFA) in Studio Fine Arts from the University of Missouri, Saint Louis. In 2008, Martin moved to Providence, Rhode Island to attend Rhode Island School of Design, where in 2010 he earned a Masters of Fine Arts (MFA) in Furniture Design, focusing on digital design. While on the East Coast Martin spent time in the Design and Engineering departments of some of America's premier Northeast furniture brands. A Saint Louisan to his core, Martin returned to Saint Louis in 2011 to begin Goebel & Co. Furniture.
"Our furniture embodies quality design and construction, but most of all facilitates function. The longevity of our work allows personal significance to grow between our clients and their furniture. The furniture isn't made to serve our purpose as designers or makers; it's made to serve the needs of our clients. It will look good and perform well even as life occurs on, around, and to it."
Jason Dakis has been with Goebel & Co. Furniture since 2013. A jack of all trades and master of method, Jason is a native son of Maryland where early in his career he worked in the construction and finished carpentry trades. Focusing on kitchen and bathroom remodeling he found an affinity for the finer building arts. Merged with his mechanical inclination and background as a BMW motorcycle mechanic, Jason’s transition to furniture evolved intuitively yet informal until his addition to at Goebel & Co. Furniture.
After graduating with a Bachelors of Arts in Studio Art from Reed College in 2004, Lucas worked in the bar industry nearly a decade before transitioning to Goebel & Co. Furniture in 2013. Having little experience in making furniture, Lucas applied his love for working with his hands with his educational background and has been transitioning as a journeyman craftsman with Goebel & Co. Furniture through rigorous cabinetmaking training over the past few years.
