Custom Frames

Recently, we have seen a desire with most of our customers to change the look or style of furniture as well as the material. We have been redesigning so much furniture lately, that we have decided to go a step further and begin producing custom-built furniture. This way, you can choose every aspect of your design. These pieces will be unique custom-made upholstered furniture built to your specifications

To get an idea of how all this works, let's run through the process..

Select a frame style
Choose from a wide array of frames from dining chairs to sofas. These are quality bare-bones frames engineered and produced off site by one of the leading manufacturers in the industry, Chervan. Once you decide on a frame to use, we assemble it in our shop using oak dowels, screws and high strength glue. We DO NOT use framing staples which are found in a majority of new furniture.
Once assembled, we prep the frames with webbing, springs and any underlayment required for the piece. To view some of the frames we offer click here.

After you make your selection, you are not limited to what you see in the frame catalog. If you find a style that you like, but need to make some changes in the design, we can alter the frame to your specifications. For example, you can raise the back by a few inches, or fatten up the arms a bit. Maybe you want a pleated skirt or a gathered skirt ... or no skirt. Whatever changes you want us to make, we can customize it for you.
If you have a little artistry flowing in your veins, we welcome your designs, drawings and ideas as well. Just give us as much or as little information as you want to about the piece and we will create a one of a kind masterpiece that you can call your own.

Select seat cushion
Next, choose the exact type of seat and back cushion that fits your needs. Choose either spring down or foam. Select the height and density you want from ultra soft to extra firm. You can read more about foam density and firmness of foam by clicking here.

Select fabric
We have over 80 sample books in our showroom, with thousands of prints to choose from. If you can't find a particular print that you want in our books, in all likelihood we can locate it for you. Customers are also welcome to provide their own material at an additional cost.

Lastly, decide on all the finishing touches for your furniture.
You can choose style, height & size of your legs. If you should want nails, they come in a variety of shapes, sizes and color. You may want fringe or braid. We can provide all of that. All of this means that you will have a unique piece of furniture, tailored to your taste to fit in with your décor and space ...a one of a kind!
