Ohio Woman Starts Furniture Company to Fill Concealed Carry Niche

I love the atmosphere at the NRA’s Great American Outdoor Show for many reasons, but a big reason is that it gives smaller companies a chance to get in front of consumers and industry members.


One such company is Secret Compartments Furniture. Owner Jill Herro says when she took a concealed carry class eight years ago, she wanted a way to store her firearms around her home in a practical, safe and fashionable way.

“When I looked online for some way to store my gun around the home, there was just nothing,” Herro told me. “I mean, we’re talking 7-8 years ago, so there wasn’t anyone doing this sort of thing at that time.”

Herro says about six months later, she was laid off from her job in the pharmaceutical industry. That’s when she realized there was a huge opportunity for her to fill the concealed carry niche in home furniture.

“I just happen to live in an area with the largest Amish populations and realized that with the number of amazing Amish furniture builders here in Ohio, I had the opportunity to make a line of functional concealed carry furniture that would be second to none in quality.”

And that’s exactly what she did.


Secret Compartments Furniture is a premium concealed carry furniture company with an unlimited number of products, finishes and possibilities. “If it can be made out of wood, I can build it,” Herro said.

In addition to premium pieces like bookcases, tv stands, headboards and end tables, Herro said she’s also able to work with your home builder to create custom cabinetry for you kitchen and throughout your home.

“There’s really no limit to what we can do!”

A “tot lock” can also be added to most products to restrict access to firearms stored in the furniture as well, making the pieces both functional for parents and safe for children.
