About Company   Xenia, IL

M&B Designs


M&B Designs was founded by Mitchell and Brittany Budds. They are the owners, designers and builders for all of their items. They have been married for 7 years and have two boys, Bentley and Marshall. Mitchell is a Traceability Software Specialist at Hella Electronics full time and Brittany is the Administrative Assistant at First Christian Church in Flora. The business of selling furniture and decor all started around Christmas 2015 when Mitchell made Brittany an entry table out of pallets. Family and friends started asking if they could make them one as well. After the popularity of this piece of furniture, the idea of making and selling furniture was born. The business has grown rapidly since, with multiple pieces and multiple orders. Mitchell and Brittany enjoy designing and building furniture and decor and this is why they only do limited runs per piece, so that the excitement of building new items is always happening.
