About Paul Duan
Fourteen years on factory site, over twenty years around patio furniture have allowed Paul Duan to learn from all aspects of the industry from designing a synthetic wicker yarn to a glamour photo shoot. Paul is one of the few factory-grown designers who connects dots (design, trend, engineering, cost, quality, material, Ecom, customer service, warehouse, merchandising, retail, social media) and create a product brand as well as a business that bring unique values to the market place.
Paul has long observed and wanted to fill in the gap of design and price points for the commercial outdoor market, especially when the market needs more clean and simple, and yet mature and solid designs built to last. After two years of preparation, he rolled out this quick-ship program Paulduan Creations, with limited offerings for the commercial/hospitality communities, dropship from his 3PL warehouse in Ontario, California.
Paul is also a landscape photographer and did most of the photo shots for his brand. As a Southern California resident, he is a frequent traveler along Route #395 to the Eastern Sierra mountains for his landscape photography and design inspirations.
