  • About Ernest Thompson


All of us at The Ernest Thompson Company take great pride in our New Mexico heritage and all it represents, and we are inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds us.

We also take pride in continuing a woodworking heritage that trace back to the early 1600’s, and serve as stewards of age-old techniques and practices that help distinguish our work from all others.

And we’re delighted to create furniture and cabinets for contemporary customers who value sophisticated design, craftsmanship and heirloom quality, and the many people at Ernest Thompson who make it all possible.

Authentic. Timeless. Ernest Thompson.


Ernest Thompson first made his name in the early 1970s building beautiful, custom furniture in his workshop and showroom in Albuquerque’s south valley.  Inspired by New Mexico centuries-old woodworking techiniques, Ernest was able to create furniture that not was not only beautiful, but also more durable than any mass-produced product on the market. Since first starting his one-man workshop in the 70s, Ernest Thompson has partnered with some of the Southwest’s best furniture designers to create a company now recognized and admired worldwide.

Starting in the early 2000's, Ernest Thompson began applying our craftsmanship and design techniques to cabinetry, creating visually stunning, expertly-crafted cabinets and closets. 

It’s no wonder that our customers span our country and the globe, including residential customers, design partners, architects, builders and collectors



Every Ernest Thompson team member is dedicated to providing our customers with unsurpassed service and incomparable quality.  We’re proud of each and every one of them, and are confident that you will find them to be exceptional in every respect.
