Vagabond House was founded in June of 1986: using antique silver tableware and transforming it into jewelry and table accents. The little-known company was purchased by the Haas and Hardy families in 2004, focusing exclusively on the tableware aspect.
While maintaining the highest quality standards of materials and a unique approach to design, the family expanded into pewter production shortly after the purchase. This wonderful metal allows our American designers to create to their heart's desires. This creativeness partnered with a team of truly gifted carvers, artisans and fabricators allow us to bring to life the many beautiful designs and collections that have grown Vagabond House into the global brand it is today.
Mr. Arthur Court founded the company in 1966 with a focus on interior design. Our breakthrough came in the 1970s when we became the first company in the US to incorporate aluminum into our tabletop collections. Since then, Arthur Court Designs has remained a leader in the aluminum tableware and home decor industry.
Under the leadership of Creative Director Scott Haas, the company is developing revolutionary trends in dining and entertainment. Arthur Court Designs continues to transform the industry with our commitment to timeless style and everyday elegance.

Three generations of our family work hand in hand every day to share our tableware with you and your family!
