Brothers Dressler is a furniture design and manufacturing company with expertise in custom project design, coordination and fabrication. Since 2003 the Brothers Dressler workshop has designed a growing catalogue of individual pieces of furniture for small batch production and limited edition runs. We have also custom designed many furniture and lighting fixtures as well as feature walls, structures, restaurants and other spaces.

From the beginning, we have focused on responsibly sourced materials, often using reclaimed and salvaged wood along with steel, repurposed waste streams and found objects. Craftsmanship comes first, emphasizing the best qualities of the materials and identifying ways to avoid waste. Our work has been exhibited across Canada and around the world. We have worked in residential and commercial markets along with not-for-profit organizations, and with designers and architects. Some of these include Anansi Press, The Government of Canada for Canada’s High Commission UK, Evergreen Brickworks, Ontario Gov’t, The DX (Design Exchange), Shorefast Foundation, The Furniture Bank, YMCA Canada, Sheridan School of Crafts and Design, OCAD University, the University of Lethbridge, the University of Toronto School of Architecture & Design, Ryerson University’s Interior Design Faculty, Aveda, Anthropologie, Lululemon, Pixar, Burton Snowboards, Tridel, Soma Chocolate, and Blackbird Bakery as well as restaurants Aft, Archive, Boehmer, Canoe, Drake One Fifty, North of Brooklyn, Richmond Station, and Wolf in the Fog.
