Meet The Team
“Ryan Fastzkie and I founded Live Better Furniture in Cleveland, OH in 2019. As childhood friends, we grew up around Ryan’s father and older brother who both worked as skilled carpenters. Seeing all the time and effort they put into their craft gave us an appreciation for woodworking. After college, each of us were interested in building high quality custom furniture full time, so we teamed up and started Live Better Furniture. From the beginning we started crafting our furniture in a simplistic style, using locally sourced wood, with a focus on quality and durability.
Since day one, Live Better Furniture has been committed to creating one of a kind, carefully crafted, and durable products. From our conference tables, to our cutting boards, to our wall art, you can be guaranteed your piece is designed and built by craftsmen who love what they do, using only the highest quality materials available."
