Our Story

Make It Right Designs was born from our shared passions and complementary experiences.  An architect from CU Boulder and engineer from Clarkson University, we met while working in the construction industry.  When we were first getting to know each other, Tom had turned a high school welding hobby into a window well cover side business.  It wasn’t until Whitney got involved that we realized the opportunity to start something special.  With her design background, we’ve begun exploring the custom furniture market, dabbling in everything from bar stools and benches to light fixtures and whole room design.

As two Colorado natives, we draw inspiration from the culture and ethos of our home state to create furniture that is rugged, yet still somehow refined.  By using locally sourced and reclaimed materials, our unique products build upon their environment and pull a little bit of the intangible into a table or chair to remind you of a legacy of craftsmanship and ingenuity missing from today’s particleboard pieces.
