Custom Furniture Design

Custom Wood Furniture Design: Have it made your way.

Almost anything is possible with our Custom Wood Furniture Design Service! And, best of all, it won’t cost you an arm and a leg!

Because we are located in Old Town Alexandria in Northern Virginia, we have first-hand knowledge that mass-produced “big box” furniture won’t fit in many of the houses in Arlington, Alexandria and Washington, DC. In addition to quality, what differentiates Creative Classics Furniture from other stores is that most of our fine American furniture makers will build their items to your exact specifications.

For instance, if you should need a nightstand or dresser to be a few inches narrower than is standard to fit your space, this can be done for a small up-charge, usually $50 – $150. We can also completely change the configuration of a solid wood piece to fit your needs exactly!

How does it work?

Come into our Alexandria, VA store and talk to us about what you need. We can show you examples of various wood pieces that may work as a starting point in terms of style and quality. From there we take your custom dimensions and requirements and produce a drawing for the furniture maker illustrating the changes required. If you need help visualizing the end result, we can send you our drawings or a computer rendering to approve along with the price quote for the changes. Once you accept the quote, we have the item made just for you.

Example 2: Custom Cherry Wood Laptop Desk

Another cabinet that we have customized numerous ways is an “all-in-one” laptop desk. In fact, based on our frequent requests for an integrated file drawer, the manufacturer added the custom configuration (shown in photo to the right) to their standard catalog options. We have produced many variations on this cabinet for our clients.

Example 3: Custom Solid Maple Kitchen Island

A frequent customer that loves the quality of our furniture recently remodeled a kitchen. Their contractor was unable to create an island counter with the seating and function desired at a price they wanted to pay. We found a stain to match the cabinets and had our makers create a custom island that blended perfectly with the new kitchen and their pocket book.

With the island table, the customer wanted to store specific items in the cabinet so a hand rendering of the interior specifications was created and sent to the manufacturer  as well.
