Your cabinet solution
Don Irwin’s love for antiques started at a young age, when his Uncle Dave taught him how to restore and care for fine furniture and antiques. As he grew older, his love for antiques and quality craftsmanship continued to grow.
Don joined the United States Air Force on March 7th, 1977, and researched and restored family heirlooms in his free time. Upon leaving his 13-½ year military career, Don began repairing and refinishing furniture on the patio of his home in 1989 under the name, Irwin’s Furniture Restoration. As his business continued to grow, so did his workspace, storing furniture in extra bedrooms and in the kitchen. His wife Min began to develop her expertise in different types of weaving such as cane, wicker, rattan, rush, reed splint, shaker tape, Danish cord, and others. Min has been named as one of Phoenix Home & Garden Magazine’s “Masters of the Southwest.” In 1991, Don realized he needed more room to work so he rented out the company’s first location in Old Town Glendale.
In 2000, the Irwin’s home flooded while on a weeklong vacation. When they returned, Don told his insurance company that he would not let anyone else refinish his family’s heirlooms. Word started to spread throughout the insurance industry of Irwin’s Furniture Restoration’s quality craftsmanship and work started to escalate. Don realized he needed more employees and more space to accommodate the influx of work and moved to our current location in Phoenix. His two sons, share his love for antiques and fine wood furnishings, and decided to join the team. The oldest son, Donald, is currently the Operations Manager and has received training from the Smithsonian Center for Materials Research & Education, as well as, a wealth of knowledge from his father. In 2011, Don’s second son, Jeremiah expanded the company's services by developing Irwin’s Cabinets; a division to meet the need for standard and custom cabinets and countertops. Don's daughter Abby has also joined the team to help in administrative duties after obtaining her MBA from Grand Canyon University at the age of 23
