Darryl Sharpton founded Edloe Finch with his wife Jessica upon retiring after his 5th NFL season (he played for the Chicago Bears & Houston Texans). He sold sofas in college while attending the University of Miami - initially to earn some extra money, but it quickly became an obsession. Darryl intended to continue his furniture passion after playing just one year in the NFL, but decided he loved the game too much to quit playing and delayed that dream a few more years. When Darryl finally decided to retire, Jessica encouraged him to attend the High Point Market to get inspiration for his next move; Edloe Finch was born.
By contrast, Jessica is a former oil & gas consultant who decided to change careers after their first child was born. She was able to pursue her long-time passion of construction and began a home building business. Although designing custom homes was amazing, she couldn’t help but want to join Darryl in his new venture. Together they bring a unique dynamic to the furniture industry - their products are designed with style, quality and functionality as the top priorities.
