Before and After--A Custom Story

One of the most exciting things to see coming through our factory is a piece of furniture that has been completely customized. Our talented craftspeople work weekly on requests from customers to make items taller, wider, shorter or longer. They remove doors, add doors, change veneer patterns--you name it our team has probably done it. From the inital request through to the finished piece, these projects are some of the most challenging things we do, but also extremely rewarding and the end results are simply stunning.

Shown here is our in line Milan Dining Room table, 849-303, with soft bronze base. A gorgeous table, it features a satin walnut veneer top which can be finished in any of our 50+ finishes. The base can be requested in soft silver or bronze as shown. The standard size shown here is 88"w, 42"d, 30.25"h with one 22" leaf.
Now here is where it gets fun! Shown below is a customized version of this table coming through our plant at 212" long. Being used as a conference table, the cut outs in the top are for AV Boxes that the customers' techinicians were installing once the table arrived. You tell me how you can see this in the plant and not be excited!
And the finished version is just that much more beautiful.
As you can see there is no end to what our artisans can do. As we like to say, "If you can dream it, and draw it--then we can probably make it." Afterall, a home is personal and we take furniture personally.
