Brokenpress Design+Fabrication

Brokenpress Design+Fabrication simply put, is Mid-Century Modernized. We are a husband and wife team who create furniture with a mid-century feel, while accommodating modern living needs, with a nod to audiophiles.

Don’t let the word “custom” scare you away. Our pieces are made to order for a variety of reasons. This allows for customization in both size, wood species and specific needs of the client. We listen to what our client's furniture needs are, then we take our fifteen plus years of experience making furniture and working with designers and architects to design the perfect piece. From there, we takes functional design alongside excellent craftsmanship to build a piece clients love.
