As a business that has its roots in design, we believe everything we do can have a positive impact on the people we touch, either through our products or through their projects.
Design is therefore at the core of what we propose when working on custom projects.
How we work
When we work on a custom project, our clients might bring complete plans for their project (when they work with an interior designer for instance). In that case, we'll be happy to put our woodworking hat and help refine a few technical details along the way before fabricating the project.
But most of the time, from our experience, people kinda know what they want and they don't have ready to go plans. So they need help figuring a lot of things along the way. And that's ok. That's why we offer a design service billed by the hour to design and make the plans for your project.
The advantages are:
- You can benefit from experienced furniture designers that will help make your project leaner on you wallet, better integrated in your space and will help along with the multiple choices that comes with custom projects.
- Before starting anything, we agree with you with a bank of hours that will be spent on the design and plans. Therefore you know what to expect beforehand.
- Once the design is set and the plans are done, they are yours. We will off course give you a quote for your project but you may as well have other quotes made elsewhere. That gives you freedom.
A Baltic birch desk
Our customer knew what he wanted and helped him push his design further while adding a few clever features. Oh, and the magnificent photos are his!
Walnut desk with hidden slide out shelf
We did two of those desks. The initial demand was for an extension similar to those of the olds desks of the 60s. We chose to hide ours in a drawer.
Making the most of an unused alcove
Our client asked us to come up with a solution that would help him create a nice work from home space. We proposed a desk with a side unit and a slat wall for more intimacy.
A very small desk
For this project, our client had a very small space (36in) available. We designed a floating desk in walnut with a hidden cables passage behind it.
A room divider inspired by modern design
This room divider has a few tricks up its sleeves. The posts can be separated in halves, hallowing the unit to be installed on the wall. The desk has a clever fold out extension that also use magnets to stay closed. All of the shelves and cabinets are movable as they are fixed with 45° dowels in the posts and are held with gravity.
Counters for a non-profit
For this project, our client needed two massive movable counters to collect returnable containers (beer bottles, cans, etc) as way of financing their activities. We enhanced the initial design by adding rustic birch paneling while reinforcing the structure to accept large stainless steel counter tops.
