Born & bred in Brooklyn, NY, Joshua and Kristen Kanter took a leap of faith in 2004. Josh had worked in the film and television industry as a set designer/builder, while Kristen had focused her career on childhood abuse prevention and intervention.ย 

Together, they both had a love for the arts and decided to follow their dream of owning their own furniture and design business. The Kanters decided to pursue this dream, by leaving their careers and moving to the Berkshires, where they opened JK Custom Furniture and Design. Producer Dave Fraser shares their story.ย ย
