Raymond Enkeboll starts his own business making early American Style Furniture.
Raymond Enkeboll designs and manufactures the "Antigua Collection." The collection sparked the Spanish Mediterranean furniture trend in Southern California - and beyond. The collection consisted of dining room sets, credenzas, etc.
The very popular, high-end, and heavily carved furniture line expands to headboards and four poster beds.
Enkeboll moves factory to Spring St. in Chinatown, Los Angeles.
Home Décor Line (accessories) is launched. This line includes carved accents such as paper towel holder, spice, wine, and magazine racks.
Furniture line continues to grow and expands into other designs of beautifully carved and detailed pieces.
Raymond moves factory to newly designed building (designed by Raymond Enkeboll himself). Location: Carson, California. "Carson Castle" is built.
As the "Castle" is being built, Raymond sees a need for architectural solid wood elements. Converts some of his furniture componets into such elements.
Furniture line continues through the late 80's.
Raymond begins to develop a line of architectural wood elements.
Launch of the full architectural woodcarving line.
Collection includes coordinated pieces (corbels, moldings, panels, stair parts, and onlays) carved in floral, grape, shell, and oakleaf motifs manufactured in the finest quality red oak and maple. Raymond's intent was to design magnificent elements with a diverse range which could be used in limitless combinations.
The new architectural line begins to grow in popularity.
With the passing of Raymond, a second generation of Enkebolls continue the tradition.
The Company's product line expands to over 600 items. Available in seven different wood species.
