We can build anything. And we do.

There's a laundry list of things we take pride in, but we can sum it up simply:  We can build anything; we build it well. In fact our capabilities for building exceed the ideas that one team of designers can dream up- and if only we had time to explore all the creative ideas that [...]

New products, new possibilities

I met last week with our Stinson rep to catch up on new products and patterns.  No one knows quality performance fabrics, vinyls, non-PVCs, and now silicone options more than Clayton.  As always, it was educational.  I've met with Clayton and other fabric reps enough to know how quality is measured on these fabrics, in double [...]

Finished Bowling Alley Interior

Bowlero is a new customer to us and we love the design details that we get to work on with them.  Design collaboration is an area that we strive for excellence in. The biggest design and production challenges were the bar and the AV Hub. There [...]

Epic Seating

Two weeks ago my favorite upholsterers showed me the drawings for a new booth they were about to build.  They were excited about the upcoming challenge- neither had ever done a booth quite like this before.  Today they both stood back to survey their handiwork with me, and finally a well deserved pat on [...]

Finished Project- The Melting Pot

Everything is better dipped in cheese.  Or chocolate.  Here's a restaurant that celebrates fondue, great concept right?!  And we haven't even gotten to the interior yet! The seating for this restaurant has been fun for the entire shop, the upholstery department very much enjoyed the new materials in the metal frames, and the [...]

New booth project

A new customer of ours is collaborating with our designer for all of the seating in their restaurant.  We love a creative collaborative effort!  This fabric was initially chosen to be tufted for the booths.  On the prototype the pattern looked really cool tufted, changing the lines with the fabric folding, but the material had [...]

Rearranging Restaurant Furniture

How often do you walk into your favorite restaurant and find they've rearranged?  *awkward pause while I anticipate inquisitive looks* Yeah, me either. Everything is in exactly the same place, or there has been a recent remodel with entirely new fixtures, lighting has changed, etc... and the booths still might be in the same [...]

Minimalism and furniture

As with many Americans, I grow tired of clutter, things, and stuff, and I'm enamored with minimalism, though with my Amazon Prime account and 4 kids, I struggle to achieve it. I may not be living the minimalist lifestyle myself, but I can dabble in it at work.  We are in love [...]
