getting creative with custom furniture
We are excited to share photos of two of our latest projects in San Francisco! While each home differed in size and style, both projects challenged us to flex our problem-solving muscles to create customized furniture solutions for our clients. Every available inch is maximized and individual client requests considered when we design bespoke furniture. Take a peek inside our design process for developing custom furniture!
making awkward spaces feel intentional
Custom furniture is a fantastic way of turning a design limitation into a design feature! The master bedroom in our Noe Valley project had a tight niche where the bed needed to be placed. Instead of squeezing in a freestanding bed and nightstands, we designed an integrated bed with floating walnut nightstands – a seamless solution that becomes the focal point of the room.
SCALE + PROPORTION
Standard dining tables come in limited sizes and with minimal options for leg placement, which can make tucking chairs almost impossible. Larger tables from retail outlets tend to have bulkier proportions and can overwhelm a space.
We designed this FSC-certified walnut dining table with our local woodworker to provide enough seating for large family dinners. The angled leg detail maintains a lightweight feel that blends with the home’s mid-century style.
UTILIZING EVERY INCH
High on our client’s priority list for their pied-à-terre in the city was a king-sized bed in their petite master bedroom. We embraced this challenge by opting for a wall-mounted headboard and small, cantilevered nightstands to maximize every inch. Dramatic wall sconces were installed to provide bedside lighting without taking up any additional square footage.

“They are an efficient, well-organized, motivated group of talented designers who really take the time to get to know their clients. We were pleasantly surprised with how easy the process was. From the very beginning, they understood our style and vision, and the selection process was simple and straightforward. We were kept in the loop every step of the way and the end product is beautiful.”
