Inspired by the love of drums, we create unique, rock n roll furniture, instrument art and home decor from upcycled musical instruments. We are a husband and wife team, with backgrounds in carpentry, renovations, handyman work, customer service, sales, creativity and of course playing drums! The start of this business came to us literally out of the blue, one evening back in August 2018, and to our knowledge we are exclusive in this craft, throughout Canada and North America. We purchased one drum kit, did several modifications, posted them to social media, asked opinions of family and friends and the response and feedback was unbelievable! Funky Upbeat Designs was born and has turned out to be more than we ever anticipated, in the best possible way!
Each design created is completely transformed and repurposed by us in our workshop in Markham, Ontario and is handcrafted, unique and one of a kind. We aim to use reclaimed, upcycled and eco-friendly, Canadian made materials where possible in all of our designs. Custom orders and design options are also available for our customers. We are always adding to our product line, coming up with new ideas and we do not mass produce any of our designs. The feedback we continually hear about our designs are unique, original, creative, awesome, high quality and amazing!
We drum to a different beat and are doing things a little different over here!
