How we started
Giuseppe Unique Creations began as the brainchild of Kevin Gonzales, who has long had a passion for woodwork and design. The name Giuseppe is a reference to Saint Joseph the carpenter. This is inspired in part by the story of the Saint Joseph Stairs in the Loretto Chapel.
Giuseppe Unique Creations is run by mainly Kevin Gonzales and Garreth Hoover. Kevin is a diversified entrepreneur with a wide range of experience and an eye for design. He runs Giuseppe Unique Creations from his shop in Chalmette, LA and fabricates the metal components for the pieces. Garreth is a creative craftsmen from a family of carpenters. He began his career doing trim carpentry and renovation work with his Father and Uncle in Mississippi but has since moved to New Orleans, LA to pursue his dream of making custom furniture and art.
Prior to our origin, Garreth worked on several projects both for Kevin and his son Mason. The projects ranged from a custom bed, closet, and shutters to renovating an entire barber shop, masonandbinder.com. Kevin and Garreth’s mutual interest in design and craftsmanship led to them working together on the creation of unique furniture and decorative pieces. Eventually, they decided to expand and formed Giuseppe Unique Creations.
Whether rustic, traditional, or contemporary, we tailor to many styles and can work together with you to design and create a timeless piece you will love.
