Founded in 1996, Riverside Design Group grew out of a desire to revitalize manufacturing in Western Pennsylvania, introducing new products suitable for museums and gift stores. They have worked with many artists in a variety of materials, producing a range of items, including furniture, ceramics, glass, and metal jewelry. For the past 16 years, they have focused on handcrafted glass tableware and home accessories for hospitality clients (hotels, restaurants, and caterers) and retailers. As a part of their commitment to community service and support, they developed Plates With Purpose™ in 2004, to raise funds to support vital non-profit community organizations. The company now has 3 full-time employees and 1 part-time employee at their office and warehouse, and 7 full-time workers at their glass studio in Western PA.
