Terry and Ross Ruppel's Profile
Nearly twenty years ago, The Ruppel Design Group was founded, fulfilling a lifelong dream of former industrial arts teacher, Terry Ruppel. The level of skill required to ensure each piece of furniture's quality did not begin nor end with this founding. Instead, its growth has been entirely contingent upon patience, adaptability, and a natural reverence for the wood used.
On a chance visit to the area, the Ruppel family instantly fell in love with Middle Tennessee. In 1987 they purchased a dilapidated 19th century farmhouse in rural Williamson County and began the difficult work of restoring it to its Victorian glory. It was during this time that Terry gained a great respect for the building techniques of the craftsmen who built the home over a centuary ago. That same respect is now incorporated into every piece the Ruppels create.
