We would like to share our Fall Sale Program which includes 3 new designs for our product line including the California West Bookcase & Display Cabinet, the California West Love Seat and the California West Greene & Greene Chair.  Pictures and description of each of these pieces are attached.  With the holidays coming perhaps you have envisioned that custom piece that would fit in that perfect space of your home.  This could be the time to make that dream a realization.

Each piece is custom designed and crafted to your specifications.  You will get to participate in the process by selecting wood, finish and fabrics.  Stop by the shop and watch the progress of your piece as it comes to life.  This is quality workmanship at its finest!

Many of you know my wife, Nancy Murphy, has recently retired from CDC Commercial and has just joined me in the design and marketing for my business.  I encourage you to contact Nancy or me to discuss your design needs.

I like to think that we build Extraordinary Hand-built Furniture for your Extraordinary Home.  Give us a call to chat about your dreams …

This Love Seat with its loose cushions matches our Morris Chairs.  Using Quarter sawn white or red oak for the arms and the sides makes this a very striking piece.  The corbels on the sides balance the design.  The legs have 4 quartersawn oak boards mitered and then glued.  This construction technique best displays the oak’s ray flake which seems to wrap around the leg.  Covered in Italian leather.

California West Greene & Greene Chair

This design style set the standard for the Greene & Greene which was established by the brothers Charles & Henry Greene.  The leather is from Argentina and we have a selection of colours to match your décor.
