Farris Saber

From the bustling markets of Egypt to the artistic enclave of Sterling, DC, our latest episode weaves a captivating narrative around a family’s journey in nurturing a furniture restoration business to its flourishing state today. When a skilled craftsman embarked on a trek across the world, little did he know that his passion for precision would lay the groundwork for a legacy. Join us as his son, Ferris takes us through their story, revealing how a blend of old-world artisanship and fresh, digital-age marketing is reinventing the family business.

This week, our candid discussion delves into the heartbeat of a company where every brushstroke tells a story, with Ferris detailing the meticulous care that goes into restoring each piece of furniture. But it’s not just about the past; it’s also about securing the future. The business’s voyage towards new horizons, including a possible expansion back to where it all began – New York – is a testament to the dream that drives this family. Our conversation uncovers the delicate dance of honoring a father’s craftsmanship while embracing the son’s vision for growth, set against the ever-changing tapestry of consumer tastes.

As we wrap up, the episode takes an intimate turn through the cultural mosaic that shapes business and social interactions, contrasting Egyptian warmth with American efficiency. We delve into practical strategies for navigating today’s digital marketplace, including the shift away from subscription-based web services. And for a tantalizing teaser, we offer a glimpse of the ‘Automat Inspired’ chair, a symbol of innovation in a craft steeped in tradition. Tune in for an episode that’s as much a celebration of family heritage as it is a masterclass in entrepreneurial resilience.
