For more than 20 years, Salamander Designs® has been designing innovative, specialized furniture systems that are shaped by your needs.

Why Was the Company Started?

Originally, Salamander grew out of an idea developed by Salvatore Carrabba in the early 1990s. During a search for furniture to support and display his home entertainment components, Sal discovered there was nothing in the marketplace that met his requirements. He was hoping to find furniture of good quality that could be configured to meet his current needs, but flexible enough to accommodate his entertainment system as it changed over time.

Instead of "one-size-fits-all" everyone gets exactly what fits them. Furniture shaped by your needs.


Salvatore Carrabba

Sal decided to apply his background in sculpture and design to create some furniture on his own, and the Archetype System of shelving was born. The positive response to his designs from family and friends convinced him that others might be interested in his designs as well. So, in 1992 Sal founded Salamander Designs, Ltd. Since then it has become a leader in the consumer electronics furniture marketplace, offering advanced flexible solutions for audio and video enthusiasts.


Salamander is located in Bloomfield, Connecticut and occupies a modern 85,000 SF facility just north of Hartford and 2 hours from Boston and New York City. We welcome you to visit our Factory Showroom.


We at Salamander are heavily process driven and strive for Continuous Improvement in everything that we do. Quality control is a key focus for our company and we measure our performance frequently. We welcome your feedback and want to know how we've met, and hopefully, exceeded your expectations. We believe change is good and you can never be done improving.

MADE TO ORDERyou ask for it and we build it

Our facility is designed for materials and production to flow through an efficient process. Salamander manages using “Lean Manufacturing” principles and “pull manufacturing” techniques. This process allows us to Build-to-order thereby allowing us to carry virtually no finished goods stock. The concept is for the customer to “pull” the product through production with his order…you ask for it and we build it.


At Salamander, our business is fueled by our passion to create the highest quality AV furniture on the market, backed by superior service.

Like our furniture, we want our relationship with you to last a lifetime. That is our commitment to you.
