If you know me, you know that I love a good design story—especially one that starts in my home state of California—that explains the passion and innovation behind a company.
With that, I’m thrilled to share with you the remarkable journey of Feeney, Inc., a company that has been shaping the world of architectural and interior design products for an incredible 75-years.
A Humble Beginning...
Feeney, Inc. started its journey in 1948 when Art and Betty Feeney founded the company. They began by selling coated wire cable assemblies from their garage in San Francisco. This modest start laid the foundation for what would become a pioneering force in the railing and architectural products industry.
There’s no better reminder of how far you’ve come than a memento from the past. Pictured to the right is one of the original Feeney Signs that still hangs in their Corporate Headquarters today.
Innovation In Design
Throughout the decades, Feeney, Inc. became known for its commitment to innovation. They continually pushed the boundaries of what was possible, introducing products that not only met but exceeded industry standards. Their CableRail stainless steel cable infill system, for example, revolutionized deck and stair railing designs, offering a sleek and unobstructed view while maintaining safety.

As the world embraced sustainability, Feeney, Inc. rose to the occasion. They became leaders in offering eco-friendly architectural solutions, with products that incorporated recycled materials and energy-efficient manufacturing processes. Their dedication to environmental responsibility resonated with a design community increasingly focused on green practices.
75-Years of Success
Fast forward to 2023, and Feeney, Inc. is celebrating its 75th anniversary, a remarkable milestone in the world of design and manufacturing. This anniversary is a testament to their enduring commitment to quality, innovation and service.
A Bright Future Ahead
As we look ahead to the future, Feeney, Inc. shows no signs of slowing down. They continue to push the envelope, introducing new products and technologies that empower designers to bring their visions to life with style and sustainability in mind.
Feeney, Inc.’s legacy continues to inspire designers around the world. Here’s to Feeney, Inc. and many more years of creating beautiful, safe, and sustainable spaces. I’m so proud and honored to serve as their design partner.
