Kind Words From Our Clients
“Scott Jordan and all the staff were exemplary. We had custom furniture designed and installed as part of our renovation. They were easy to work with and provided top-notch guidance. They were flexible and thoughtful when helping us to negotiate needed design changes. The quality of the wood, finishing and overall construction was great. The design process, including multiple trips to our home to plan was done with the highest degree of professionalism.
We were already familiar with their work. They had done our bed, night tables, dining room chairs and file cabinet. When planning for new furniture as part of our apartment renovation, we immediately turned to Scott Jordan. We did not think of looking elsewhere. In summary, we highly recommend them and plan to use the company again.” – J. Fischer
This is where we get to know you and your space. It’s one of the most rewarding aspects of our job. Often when collaborating with our clients, creative new ideas are born. Our designer will look at various aspects of the space and the goals for its use. The old proverb “measure twice, cut once” is most befitting here.
Next, our manufacturing process is a modern approach that employs computer aided design programs and machinery.
It gives us unmatched flexibility for highly customized designs. So after the initial meeting, our designers will render drawings for your approval. From there, we will get to work.
When will I be able to get to work?, you might ask.
Our process also allows for shorter lead times and competitive pricing. You won’t be waiting for the next overseas shipment enabling you to get to work sooner too. Our craftsmen use traditional wood joinery assembly and finishing techniques to bring the work to completion. See how we do it below.
What makes our home office furniture distinctive?
“The green oak and cedar—the dark pine, the yellow and silvery-barked willow—each majestic old tree; hath its own peculiar tone and whisper for thine ear.”
All of our products are made from solid hardwoods sustainably harvested from local forests.
Our preferred wood species are:
American Black Cherry (prunus serontina)
Black Walnut (juglans nigra)
White Oak (quercus alba)
Traditional joinery, not fasteners
Traditional joinery such as the dovetail joint gives strength and durability to our work; as a result, you are not replacing your furniture any time soon, saving the landfill and the street curbs from another broken home good beyond repair.
Non toxic finishes
Our furniture is hand finished with non-toxic plant oils and beeswax which are VOC free. Safe for our employees and safe for you at home. The warmth of the wood and unique patterns of the grain are wonderfully highlighted in this process.
We never use MDF (medium density fiberboard) which often off-gasses formaldehyde. Find out more about the danger of formaldehyde in the home in this document from the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission.
It’s all in the details
Design considerations overlooked at the beginning, can have long term consequences later. Therefore, thinking through each element will ensure high productivity levels and eliminate any potential risks to your overall health.
