“I have always been inspired by Brian’s work. In the real estate industry we get to see all types of cabinet makers throughout the market. When it came time to build our new home I knew I wanted Designed & Made as part of the collaborative team. Their work is interactive art in the truest sense. He is able to clearly articulate architectural vision into cabinet design. I would highly recommend Brian for any new construction residential project.”

He has delivered ten plus kitchens each more amazing than the last, as well as many custom cabinets and architectural elements. From the design process to the execution it is truly a joy to work with someone who is not only a craftsman but also an incredible artist. We would highly recommend Brian to anyone looking for any type of custom woodworking or cabinetry. In an industry with many moving parts, it’s very refreshing to work with someone whom you know will deliver a finished product even more incredible than you imagined.”

“Brian and I have collaborated on multiple projects over the past 6 years.  From an entire home full of cabinetry, to custom furniture, Brian can do it all.  He is incredibly passionate about his work and is the most innovative cabinet maker I have come across.  He can translate and build any ideas I come up with, and a lot of times, collaborates with me to make the end product even better!  Brian is my trusted, go-to cabinet maker for amazing design and top quality.  I definitely consider him a member of my team.”
