Custom Furniture – Uniquely You

When you are looking for furniture that is uniquely you and made especially for your home, consider custom furniture. We recently worked with a client to provide storage and a custom look around her fireplace and TV. We began with a concept and tweaked it until we got to the final drawing that looked like this…

When considering custom furniture, the client wanted to increase her storage space and have a place to display pictures and trinkets. As is usually the case, the space had its challenges. The main challenge of this project was that left side of the fireplace was wider than the right side because we had to allow for a door to swing into the room from the balcony.

We then decided to finish the piece in a glazed gesso finish in cream with olive accents. The cabinet tops would be olive green. We had the pieces custom painted by Billet Collins Studio. To further customize the pieces we procured large birch twigs that were used to create the brackets for the display shelves. In keeping with the “woodsy theme” we selected pinecone knobs in an antique brass finish.

Our furniture vision was brought to life by Michael James Furniture.

We specified a square tulip leg like the one below…

We always get excited about installation day! It’s when all of the idea generating, sketching, and planning comes to 3D reality. Here, the pieces are being installed…

When working with an Interior Designer to create custom furniture here are some things to consider:

  1. The Space – where the custom furniture will go
  2. The Look – options here are almost endless – we will work with you to determine your style
  3. Your Needs – storage? display? drawers? doors?
  4. Your Budget – give us an idea of your budget and we can design something that incorporates your needs and wants
