Arrowhead is a small craft operation in Raleigh, North Carolina. Utilizing various media - metal, wood, leather - we design and construct industrial, modern furniture, art, and structures. All designs are developed and fabricated in-house, in consultation with commissioners, and with a dedication to a level of craftsmanship that's hard to find these days.
Each member of Arrowhead Building Co.'s team offers a unique and integral perspective. Employing only skilled professionals, our crew members take pride in advanced architectural literacy and practical experience
