Custom 💫 Mid Century Furniture ✨ Vancouver, WA

Who are we?

We started out fixing up old furniture and giving it a new life, as a hobby on the weekends. When we both lost our jobs we had more time to get more creative. We started transforming antique sewing machine tables into creative laptop desks. Once those were becoming more difficult to find we moved on to mid century style furniture. We shopped at garage sales and estate sales looking for mid century tables to refinish and sell. That also became difficult to find at affordable prices.

So, finally we decided to attempt actually building the furniture ourselves. We started out with a tiny little record player cabinet and a bookcase that we picked up at a garage sale and based those items on our construction. We added our own style and a modern touch and created a design of our very own.

After the first few pieces sold on Etsy (that did take a while) we started getting requests for other things. TV stands, desks, nightstands, etc.... Now we have a huge line of furniture that we offer in custom sizes and colors! Our customers love us and we love our customers! We are so excited to have accidentally fallen into this business and we are so lucky that we found something we are both great at. We never imagined our new career would be our own business building hand crafted custom furniture. It is a dream come true.

Thanks to all of our loyal customers, we were able to purchase a home with a real workshop space in March of 2015!

It was not easy when we first started out. We lived in a small 2 bedroom house. No garage, no shop, no covered patio or workspace. We turned our 2nd bedroom into a woodshop and as our sales increased, our house became a woodshop. It was a rough few years there but we made it!

Thank you so much for reading our story and for choosing us to furnish your house.
