matthewholdren's Shop Announcement

I design and build all of my furniture in my backyard workshop in New Orleans. All of my pieces are made from reclaimed material personally salvaged from 100+ year old new orleans homes left to rot or torn down. I collect and store all of my material from massive wide plank boards to old bead board to cypress windows and moldings to pieces of wrought iron railing from the french quarter and around town. My pieces have a simple strait forward design. The old heart pine or cypress framing material, along with the patina of layers of old paint are what really enhance the furniture and bring a unique look to the piece. As my business grows orders may take up to 5 to 6 weeks from order to shipping please inquire about time frames. These are one of a kind custom pieces individually built by hand, sorry for the timeframe but that is part of custom furniture.For more of my portfolio and ideas for custom made pieces I can build for you check out:

    • Custom delachaise table and matching end tables

      Shipped on time. Tables are so much better than I expected, classic beauty that I will not grow tired of. Matthew is very easy to work with and true to his word. My only regret is that my living room is not finished being painted so I cannot see the tables in place.

    • The French Quarter bed for Ellen

      Everything about this bed is wonderful. It is solid, beautifully crafted, and has exceeded my expectations. Matthew was professional in all communications and even delivered and assembled the bed since I am local. I recommend his work to anyone looking for unique, locally sourced, well crafted furniture. You will not be disappointed.

    • Centerhall Armchair

      The Centerhall Armchair is beautiful to look at and even nicer to sit in -- clearly, it was built by a craftsman with skill and imagination. Good customer service, and reasonable shipping time given the custom nature of this piece. Thanks Matthew, look forward to being a future customer.

    • small under window bookcase

      Our neighbor actually accepted this delivery for us and immediately sent us a text that it is a fantastic piece...He asked for the seller's info. The wood pieces are solid and unique with the weathered look we were seeking. We've left some spots on the shelves empty to showcase the beautiful texture and design at the back. Thank-you!
