Welcome to Designs by Rudy!
My name is Darek, aka Rudy. I was born and raised in Poland, where I spent most of my youth creating trouble, as most children did. My devious plans were always a little different, though.
At the age of 12, I dismantled a brand new and perfectly ordinary wall unit just to see if I could give it more personality, or as I like to say, a soul.
Fast forward to now – I’ve lived in Chicago since the late 80’s and have been building up a portfolio of creative jobs ever since. I’ve redesigned my family’s house from the ground up, dabbled in various interior and exterior furniture crafting, spent years designing graphics and websites, and even learned the art of video marketing. All were just stepping stones to fulfilling my lifelong dream, to design and create furniture.
So, in February of 2017, I took a leap of faith and started my concrete furniture business. I design, build and ship unique pieces from my shop to clients all over the world, ensuring that each one has that bit of soul I tried to create with my very first project. If you’re looking to add a modern and distinctive piece to your home or office, I’m just an email away.
