Since 2010 Brush Factory has developed a reputation for excellence.  Our woodworking facilities and skilled cabinetmakers offer craftsmanship and attention to detail that’s second to none.  Whether designed by Brush Factory or otherwise we build furniture, case goods, fixtures and millwork for commercial and residential clients.  We’re working with architects, interior designers, general contractors and small businesses all over Cincinnati but especially in Over-the-Rhine to contribute to rebuild our neighborhood’s environment one project at a time.







Putting it all together for clients as an all inclusive design/build program to create unique spatial experiences is the heart of our mission.  We collaborate with clients to identify specific needs and translate these into custom furniture, case goods, soft goods, millwork and fixtures that elevate their brand and create a unique interior experience.

As tireless designers and makers Brush Factory founders Hayes Shanesy and Rosie Kovacs created Brighton Exchange their own line of furniture and products.  This contemporary collection grows each year as the brand develops around simple, functional, fun pieces.  Brighton Exchange is an outlet for creative expression on a smaller scale than our custom projects.  Working as our own manufacturer employing the design and production skills of the studio and workshop allows us the freedom to experiment on playful products that reflect the joy in designing and making in small handmade batches.
