Brown Jordan is a luxury outdoor furniture and it is really lucky to have hired Steve Elton. Elton has been the company’s chief brand curator and he really dedicated so many years in this business in which his passion lies. For 30 weekends each year, he would hop on the plane and would travel to one of the high-end showrooms of the company in order to meet with the customers, clients and also staff and share his knowledge on design and also sell merchandise.
It was in the year 1990 that Brown Jordan hired Elton as a sales representative but it wasn’t the job he wanted to have. He actually wanted to be able to use his creativity. During his 20s, he attended a design school and took a class on branding. Those Brown Jordan ads which he kept seeing were inspirational for him. He then longed to work for the company.
He grew up in New Jersey and spent a lot of his time in playing sports. He loved basketball and was also a good athlete but he couldn’t ignore his passion for design. He loved fabrics and he would often rearrange their home’s furniture. He was not so artistic but when it comes to fixing up the classroom, his teachers would often ask for his opinion despite his young age.
Elton then got a job being a salesperson in such exclusive furniture store and supported his family. He actually got really interested to work for Brown Jordan and he kept submitting applications to the company for eight years. He kept sending out letters to the company’s head that he be given a job and then the president showed up and he was offered a position in Brown Jordan.
After so many years, Elton actually built a really strong reputation for knowing the company inside and out and became in-charge of overseeing the media. It really helped him improve more when he worked under Frinier, a famed designer. For 20 years, Frinier served as the chief creative officer of the company and worked with Elton especially on fabric selection. Then Elton became in charge of the fabric selections and traveled in other parts of the globe to study fashion and fabrics.
Then when Frinier left the said company, Elton became the chief branding officer and he really loves to tell over and over again how the company’s iconic piece was given a major award. For being with the company for 28 years, Elton really loves his job. Due to the many contributions he has given, Elton was given the 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award by the International Casual Furnishings Association.
