Our Story

Your stuff should last a long, long time

Here's A Bright Idea, You Deserve More

Well Made exists because we believe that everyone deserves more from the products they buy. There is this massive disconnect between the quality of the things we want to own and the things we actually do own. It seems like someone, at some point, made this decision for us that it was OK for our things to fall apart.

And that just doesn’t sit well with us.

Framing & Organization

Others Back Our Mission, Too


We Love Design

Product design. Graphic design. Design for manufacturing... Design is what we do. If we can't create product experiences that you'll rave about, we go back to the drawing board.


Built To Last

Well Made is not just our name, it's our mission. We start with the best raw materials possible, and then shape them with expert craftsmanship so they'll last for generations to come.


Expert Manufacturing

How a product is made is just as important as what it's made from. We know our way around a wood shop like the back of our hands, and use this expertise to keep quality high and costs down.


Here For You

Our Chicago-based team is small but mighty. We're proud to craft products from scratch, pack them up, ship them off to your door and pick up the phone when you call, all under one roof.
