Meet some of our superstars

Drophouse Design

It’s Furniture Week (Friday!) at Curbed, and for our final episode on Curbed Austin, we’re sharing photos of some of the exquisite work done by some of our best local makers (and re-makers) of furniture, home items, and the odd structural item.

Mark Macek, Macek Furniture Company

Macek has been designing and making unique, gorgeous furniture and other things in Austin, as well as for people and cities all over the world, for quite some time; he has an architecture degree from UT as well as an education in construction trades, and he also exhibits work as an artist. His stuff started off great and just gets better.

Keith Kreeger, Keith Kreeger Studios

Kreeger moved to Austin from Cape Cod in 2009 and soon enough was making a huge splash with his fantastic porcelain ware. Beautiful and distinctive, his work embodies clean, modern design that ups the pleasure factor considerably in great restaurants, hotels, and homes around the world—and, especially, in Austin.
