What started as a DIY table project in 2012 quickly morphed into a successful small business for two Indianapolis residents. Brothers Furniture Design, co-owned by firefighters Justin Berg and Bryan York, pride themselves on building quality furniture from locally-sourced Indiana materials.

When they started their business, Berg and York felt there was a gap in the furniture market.

“Quality Amish-built furniture in the area carries a high cost,” Berg says. “Popular styles from larger furniture stores are lacking the quality. So, we decided to fill that gap by making solid wood furniture at affordable pricing.

“Rather than view the Amish or furniture stores as competitors, we learn from them, and build with very similar technique that has produced quality pieces for years, while putting our own twist on the designs to make them stylish for today,” York adds.

Berg and York use hand-selected, high-quality hardwoods that are custom made to their customers’ satisfaction. They have a shop and showroom with rotating stock. Interested customers can peruse their completed work by appointment.

“When you have a small business, word-of-mouth and your reputation for quality is everything,” Berg says. “You have a dream design? Bring it to us and we will make it a reality. We build a wide variety of custom designs.”
