Building: Watson Furniture

Kitsap Economic Development Alliance

A groundbreaking Kitsap County company combines 21st century tech and old-school integrated manufacturing: supplying state of the art office suites for Nike, Boeing and the company next door. Watson Furniture attracts corporate buyers and artisanal craftspeople to its wooded campus near Poulsbo, Washington. Design and manufacturing are literally integrated, with raw materials in one door and finished suites of state-of-the-art office furnishings out the other.

Our creative approach capitalizes on the success of our “Kitsap Connected” media campaign, now in its third year. For this new round of updated video profiles, we feature first-person conversations blended with dynamic location b-roll of people and processes. There are now over fifteen produce pieces in the “Connected” series, linked through KEDA’s substantial web presence and the social media contacts among its membership.

The “Fourth County” in the burgeoning Puget Sound Region economy, Kitsap exceeds even it booming brethren – Snohomish, Pierce, and King – in quality of life, cost of living, and educational and workforce advantages.
