About Kole Made

 We want to improve the perception, process, and quality of products and spaces in the built environment. By mixing creative design, construction ability, woodworking expertise, and thoughtful organization, we provide everything our clients need to build beautiful spaces. We believe this process can and should be fulfilling, enjoyable, and gratifying for everyone involved.

 
 

Our History

We began by making furniture and custom kitchens in a garage shop in Northeast Philadelphia.  Our goal was to build beautiful, high quality pieces using local reclaimed material that told a story.

Like many small businesses, we slowly grew our reputation and business one customer at a time. As the residential and commercial industries expanded in Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs, we expanded our business, outfitting a studio and industrial woodworking shop in the Brewerytown neighborhood.

 
 

We believe:

  • The key to any good project or partnership starts with a relationship based on understanding and trust.

  • High-quality manufacturing in American cities is still possible and vital to our community.

  • It is possible to make high-quality cabinetry and products here in America by merging traditional craftsmanship with modern technology.

  • Every element in a space should enhance its look, feel, and function.

  • The building process should be smooth, kind, and simple.

  • We treat our employees with respect by embracing their diversity and recognizing their unique abilities and contributions.

  • Builders, craftspeople and trade workers should be appreciated and respected as the artists they are.
