My Story

After being laid off of a corporate job in the mortgage/banking industry back in 2007, my world changed. After that I could only find temporary jobs, no company in my industry was hiring full time employees (mortgage crisis). During 2008/2009 I finally found full-time work, but I wasn’t doing what I was trained for - I had to settle for a lower pay and more responsibilities which was frustrating and stressful to say the least, so I knew that I had to do something new. But most importantly, I wasn’t happy working for someone else.

I have always had the entrepreneurial bug in me and have always wanted to have my own business. On the other hand, creating, drawing and designing things have always been something that I have really enjoyed doing since I was a child.

Modern Textures, Inc creates astonishing and unique pieces of furnishings and wall art for your home and office. We design and make pieces that you won’t find at any retail store. Creating timeless pieces that you can enjoy forever is our goal - our pieces are built to last and made with love.

We take pride on all the pieces that we create, we believe that every little detail is extremely important when we create either a 12”x12” or a 10 foot by 6 foot piece. From designing, creating, packing and shipping a piece you are guaranteed to get the best quality possible.

Every single piece of wood is touched, sanded, painted with love by a human being. Positive energy is poured into all of our beautiful pieces that comes out of our shop.

Our materials…
We use mostly reclaimed wood to build our pieces. Fence wood, poplar, cedar, alder and maple are the most common types of wood we work with. It’s amazing the look and feel you can get with reclaimed wood, it’s more time consuming to work this reclaimed wood - but totally worth it.

Who do we work with?
We work with anyone who wants to enhance their space. Whether it’s living room, bedroom, office or a meeting room, we can customize any of our designs to enhance your space in size and color. We also partner with several interior design firms all around the U.S. in order to create astonishing custom pieces for their clients.

Looking forward to working with you soon,

Henry Toro
President
