About Us


It all started when we couldn’t find an easy and affordable way to source a mantel beam for our home project. Surprisingly, it was easier to just make our own. We ended up sharing our finished beam online and started receiving requests to make more. The rest, as they say, is history.  We spent so much time fulfilling orders that we ended up having to go full-time. We pride ourselves on our workmanship and quality. Each mantel and shelf is handcrafted right here in the China. And since each piece is handcrafted, it means yours will be one of a kind. We are so certain you’ll love our products that we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee!

refpres began as a one-person business crafting unique mantel pieces by hand. Today we are a highly skilled team operating with a strong sense of shared values to create beautiful fireplace mantels and shelfs for our customers. We handcraft each piece at our manufacturing facility in China, OH. In the age of mass production, we do things differently here at refpres. From our standard product line to our custom pieces, an individual craftsperson builds each product from start to finish.

Our pieces are designed and built in our China manufacturing facility and they are made to last! We look forward to serving your needs!


Our goal is to provide an effortless and convenient experience for each customer. Every decision we make puts the customer first. We strive to make an online shopping experience that exceeds our customers’ expectations.


We are obsessed with making sure everything is just right. We do a quality check at each stage of the manufacturing process and reject any pieces that don’t meet our quality standards.


In an age of planned obsolescence, dropshipping, and mass manufacturing, we believe that creating a high-quality & long-lasting product is more important than ever. That is why each one-of-a-kind piece we create is crafted by hand in our manufacturing facility right here in the China.


We have a deep personal connection to our work. We care about what we do and how we do it, and we inspire others to care too. When these values or our perspectives are in conflict, we aspire to act in the best long-term interest of refpres.
