Meet our founders:
Darryl & Jessica
In 2008, while pursuing his degree in finance and playing linebacker at the University of Miami, Darryl Sharpton began selling furniture – initially to earn some extra money, but it quickly became an obsession.
In the Spring of 2010, the Houston Texans selected Darryl in the 4th round of the NFL Draft. Darryl intended to continue following his furniture passion after playing just one year in Houston, but decided he loved the game too much to quit playing and delayed that dream a few more years.
After 5 seasons (and multiple knee and shoulder surgeries), Darryl decided to turn in his helmet, retire from the NFL and pursue his passion for furniture – he partnered with his wife, Jessica, to launch Edloe Finch in 2017.
Jessica is a Rice University Graduate and former oil & gas consultant who decided to change careers after their first child was born. She was able to pursue her long-time passion of construction and began a home building business. Although designing custom homes was amazing, she couldn’t help but want to join Darryl in his new venture.
Darryl & Jessica travel around the world to design and manufacture their collection of gorgeous furniture for customers across North America. Together the couple brings a unique dynamic to the furniture industry - their products are manufactured with style, quality and functionality as the top priorities. Their mission is to manufacture chic modern furniture without the typical industry mark-ups. Edloe Finch operates exclusively online with no retail stores, showrooms or salespeople – passing the savings to you!
