Hello all, I'm Kate, the founder of Koeppel Design and wanted to share a few thoughts about our business in 2017. Last year was a big year for Koeppel Design; while we are still a small business, we've grown and learned a lot this year- and I am proud of it. What was just a little side-project has now grown into a rewarding full-time career. Our products now reside in homes all over the world, and we've had chance to meet, chat with and learn about record collectors across the globe.
We start preparing for the holidays in September, ramping up production to increase our inventory. We continued with a very challenging production schedule all the way through the first weeks of December. While the year was wild and challenging in many ways, Koeppel Design sales revenue grew an unanticipated 45% - a significant increase that surpassed our goals for growth in 2017. Our overall number of sales grew 33%, which again was ahead of our goals for the year.
To celebrate a big year, we're temporarily pausing production this January to take a short break to recharge and reflect on what is next. I'll be heading to Italy for two weeks with my family to my favorite place for inspiration, Rome. We're looking forward to fresh pasta, long cold walks, a bit of art (and lots of history) and a few Negronis to help us celebrate, unwind and start the new year.
During our production break, all orders placed between January 7 -January 22 will begin shipping on Tuesday, January 23. Please refer to individual product pages for pre-order production lead times, as out-of-stock, pre-order and custom items may take longer to ship. We'll be back rested and ready to get back to work and back into production on January 23rd.

Our newest product, The LP Block is finally out in the world and shipping daily from our studio here in San Francisco. If you'd like to see a few shots in the wild, you can explore #theLPblock on Instagram. Our original goal was to design a minimal vinyl stand with a bit of height, to display album art while eliminating the issue of a messy pile of LP jackets propped on the floor or around the turntable.
