After almost 40 years in business, Uttermost continues to do the things that made it last this long. Bob and Belle Cooper, the brand's founders and owners, remain passionate about what Uttermost does, what it believes, and the people who work there. The mission is simple, to make great home accessories at a reasonable price, just as the company has sought to do since its inception.
Uttermost supports prestigious home furnishing retailers worldwide with top designs and service. Its elite design team includes Carolyn Kinder, Grace Feyock, Billy Moon, Matthew Williams, David Frisch, Joe Famulari, and Constance Lael-Linyard.
Kinder and Uttermost have been partners for more than 17 years. She started designing wall décor but expanded into portable and fixed lighting. Her unique style, vision and passion make her special to Uttermost. "She still amazes us with her creative genius on every product introduction," said Uttermost president Mac Cooper of Kinder, the first female winner of the ART Academy of Achievement Award, honoring lifetime achievement in the accessories industry. "She stays a step or two ahead on design."
Kinder and her fellow designers help to create one of the most broad and diverse product selections in the world, including accent furniture, rugs, lighting fixtures, alternative wall art, clocks, lamps, decorative mirrors, botanicals and accessories. The company takes no shortcuts to make sure its designs exceed expectations.
The Uttermost brand comes from the Bible, Acts 1:8, reflecting a personal belief to share God’s word “to the uttermost part of the earth." In turn, the brand offers products for nearly all parts of the earth. Uttermost operates in a manner consistent with Biblical principles.
