Interior Design and Custom Woodworking from Imagination to Realization

Juha and Riitta immigrated to South Florida from Finland in the late 1980s. Riitta has always had a passion for design, which she pursued by getting a degree in interior design technology in 1994. Our first design project was our own home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, which needed a complete overhaul. Juha, a chef by trade, wanted to do the renovation, including cabinetry and trim work. As the project progressed, Juha found a new way of expressing his creativity in cabinetry and woodworking. Shortly after that, we started our interior design and cabinet shop. Now, for more than 20 years, we have been creating award-winning projects and cabinetry, case goods and custom furniture, accessories such as floating shelves, mirror frames and more. Our work has been published in magazines and newspapers. The creativity just keeps flowing, and new ideas come up constantly for new exciting products. We are constantly developing and making prototypes for new items in anticipation for sharing them with you soon.

We have been creating all kinds of custom built-ins, furniture, decor and award-winning cabinets for more than 20 years. Our latest custom lines include all-wood Skateboard Longboards and trays. The boards and trays are constructed of thin strips of different species of woods in their natural colors, assembled in a variety of designs that make each board unique. This line is a natural extension to our creative woodworking business and lets us use and recycle materials from larger projects instead of sending them to the landfill.

Additional policies and FAQs
Material Information: For our lines of items we use materials like different wood species, bamboo, slate, metal etc., or combination of some of these items depending on the design. The characteristics of wood is its grain variation. Some being strong and some subtle depending on the species. This is considered enhancement of the natural beauty of the wood and not defect. Slate is a natural stone product with it's own distinctive character in variation in color and surface texture.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE: For wood and bamboo surfaces in furniture such as tables, we recommend to use a coaster under drinking glasses. Clean with a soft clean cloth. Use only wood cleaners with no oil or wax and apply the cleaning agent or the cloth then wipe the wood. Do not apply the cleaner directly on the wood surface. Do not use solvents, abrasives or acids. Other surface materials can be cleaned with light dusting or vacuuming with soft bristle head.

For Skateboard Longboards periodically check and tighten the trucks if necessary. Since the wood color is natural and all the way thru, for small nicks and scratches wipe over with furniture oil or wipe on poly.

Items that require simple assembly or installation will come with instructions. We are not liable for any damage caused by handling or use of the product(s).
