Founded as a one man custom furniture design and building business, MDM Design has grown into a multi-service company providing the many aspects of custom cabinetry, furniture and millwork needs.
Still a small, lower volume business, our focus is a detailed and hands on approach to achieve a high end finished product. We have the great opportunity to work with some very talented people in the design field and work on a variety of unique and special products. We are always looking for a new challenge, so no project is too out of the ordinary or custom.
Born and currently living in Birmingham, Michael stays in touch with popular design in the Birmingham area as well as other markets. He is strongly influenced by Italian design principles and has a love for the fine furniture that is produced in modern Italian style. He has traveled to see many of the products offered by some of the world’s best furniture and cabinetry producers and looks to them as an inspiration for his own work.
While attending Samford University , Michael first dabbled with woodwork as a hobby. Self taught for the most part, he loves to experiment with different techniques and materials. After graduating, he worked at a local art gallery making custom frames and other pieces. Michael began and funded MDM Design Studio, by designing and producing interior accessories for antique Ford Broncos. His accessory business allowed the purchase of many of his first woodworking tools. Demand for Michael’s work quickly grew and in early 2006 he acquired his first commercial space to begin MDM Design Studio.
