Who We ARE

Established in 2019, Yanni Custom Furniture and Design was built from the dream of passionate craftsman Yianni Kefalianos. By partnering with co-owners Nick and Manuel Frangos, our team has been able to create something truly special – a family owned furniture showroom, design center and manufacturing company. What started as a showroom on an industrial site, we have been able to move our showroom to Boardman, Ohio and expand our custom design services. An incredible eye for design and state of the art equipment has allowed Yanni to design and produce our own line of custom furniture that will be released in 2023.
