Nathaniel Brawley Hill, is the designer and creator of Brawley Made Furniture in Downtown Los Angeles. With deep ties to New England and its many vernacular styles of furniture and architecture, he has spent the last fifteen years building custom furniture and homes, timber framing, and working in historic preservation.
He studied American History at Hampshire College, and then continued his education at the North Bennett Street School in Boston where he completed their Preservation Carpentry program.
Over the years, he has had the opportunity to work with a wide array of traditional techniques, all of which he incorporates into more contemporary styles to create his distinctive modern American aesthetic.
Now making Los Angeles his home, Nathaniel is focused on producing his original furniture designs, working on commissions of custom furniture, as well as creating select architectural millwork.
