Based in Richmond, Virginia, Fern & Roby produces heirloom-quality furniture and audio equipment for a high-end market of modern design geeks and audiophiles. Though the full line earns praise both for its detailed, quality craftsmanship and creative vision, its most stunning statement may be the pairing of natural aesthetics and leading-edge technology found in company's Beam Tower Speakers. Minimalist, sculptural, and joyously celebratory of their raw, reclaimed-wood construction, the Fern & Roby speakers look every bit as good as they sound. Then again, when you're spending $6,500 on bass and treble, would you really expect anything less?
Available at Fern & Roby; $6,500.
