Launched in 2011, Franklin & Ben (F&B) celebrates authenticity and modern design with its unique furniture pieces. A first in its industry, F&B intertwines vintage craftsmanship inspired by classic, Shaker furniture and New England architecture with streamlined shapes and contemporary finishes. The result is a fresh spin on classic pieces.
Ever since their school days in Cambridge, the history of New England has been close to the hearts of our founders. Walking amongst the brownstone buildings on the streets of Massachusetts, they fell in love with the historic, colonial landscape.
When they moved to Los Angeles, they found an appreciation for the eclectic and contemporary. In the sprawling Mecca of pop culture, they drew inspiration from the streamlined facades of the city's mid-century cityscape.
Together, these elements bring to life the defining Franklin & Ben aesthetic-updated nursery classics that recognize the best of traditional and modern design. In its seamless collections, traditional silhouettes are paired with modern finishes such as navy or weathered grey and then are completed with unique hardware like brushed nickel and hammered metal. The combination of vintage and modern allows each piece to subtly translate into any nursery.
