Carpinteria, CA-based brothers Andrew and Peter Hernandez combine a passion for design and quality from a bygone era with modern-day, sustainable building practices.
Starting off as movers at their mother’s antique store nearly 10 years ago, they developed a love for the hunt for unique vintage and antique pieces. Add to that construction skills needed to design and manufacture furniture and lighting along with eco-conscious sensibilities, and a concept was born.
Their works include tables made from reclaimed wood – including old bowling lanes – and lamps using salvaged metals and knobs that hail anywhere from a farmhouse in the Midwest to a village in Europe.
“For us, quality is not only a measure of a completed product, but of the process and materials that go into making it,” the brothers explain.
We know how they feel.
Stay tuned: The Brothers of Industry will create a lamp exclusive to Territory Ahead for our Fall 2012 collection, as well as a graphic tee collaboration for Spring 2013.
