Shiner International

All Makers

Shiner International, helmed by Joe Manus, employs artists and craftsmen who adapt previously used materials such as steel, hardwood and cardboard to create home goods that produce a low environmental impact. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Shiner's products are modern, eco-friendly reclaimed wood furnishings. Shiner's goal is to transform tons of landfill-destined materials into killer designs.

Born out of the Great Recession, when business dried up for Joe's high-end commercial construction company, he decided to repurpose his existing team and equipment, along with his remaining savings, to pursue his dream of creating luxury, modern design furniture. A self-taught designer, one of his initial pieces, the Mood Rocking Bed, was an instant icon, earning him a Rising Star design award in 2012.

Also in 2012, Shiner merged with Home Source International, a larger manufacturer of soft goods for the home.  With backing from a larger company, Joe has been able to broaden his line of forward-thinking furniture and lighting, and create a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Marianna, Florida.
