“We’ve had the joy of working with Designed & Made on several of our homes. What sets Brian’s company apart is his adept understanding of how to push cabinetry design and construction technology beyond his competitors, to bring new ideas to the design table making the cabinetry concept stronger and the design team better. We have used them on homes that range from traditional, to transitional, to modern – all having the common denominator of quality and superior craftsmanship.  I would gladly recommend using Designed & Made on your next project.”

“I had the pleasure of working with Brian for the first time this year, on a speculative new home project located in Edina’s historic district.  The clients had worked with Brian before, and when they explained his passion, creativity, and capabilities of ‘pushing the cabinetry envelope,’ I decided to make cabinetry an essential part of the project.  With the interior designer, clients, ourselves, and Brian’s team, we had a few collaborative working sessions at their shop, which was always clean, orderly, and equipped to handle seemingly any type of convention we threw their way.  The outcome of our project is a success and we look forward to our next endeavor working with Brian and his team!”

“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.”
