Paul and Gena
Paul and Gena saw one of our custom arm styles on this page (Jill’s and Nitya’s) and loved it. They asked if we could make the arm height the same as the back frame height adn we were able to make that change. We always start making changes from one of our own sectional styles and we used our Byron style sectional in this case. Paul and Gena opted for weldless cushions, our poly back options, bordered box back cushions, our 5” seat cushion borders (adding an inch of thickness to the seat cushions), no welt on the cushions and bordered box, and single seat cushions. Their 3-piece custom style sectional consists of a custom sized LF loveseat (68.5”), curved wedge, and a custom sized RF loveseat (68.5”). Their fabric is our microdenier Baltimore Otter.
Cindy wanted new furniture for her home in New York. She liked aspects of our Spenser style but wanted “double returns” on the ends. You can see what that looks like in the photos. It’s a great way to rest your back with your legs up on the sofa. She needed two matching sofas with different overall lengths. She chose single seat cushions and we used 5” border seat cushions. Cindy opted for our poly back cushion fill which is our firmest option and more supportive. Her larger sofa is 115” in overall length and the smaller is 80”. Cindy participated in our Customer’s Own Material (COM) program for her fabric choice.
Danielle liked our Crawford sectional style but wanted to switch to our Byron style back cushions (scattered backs). No problem and no big deal. Her 3-pieced custom sectional includes a LF loveseat, corner chair and RF loveseat. She upgraded her free ottoman to be storage and added 2.25” treadball casters. Baltimore Dove was her fabric choice.
Livia wanted to redecorate the den in her basement, but she had a tight doorway to consider (29” of doorway width) and wanted our help. She liked our Roth style, but wanted to make a couple of changes. She wanted border back cushions instead of the rounded backs of the Roth style, wood block feet, and she opted for our 5” border seat cushions. Livia wanted our firmer poly back cushion fill and loved the look of our decorative Old Gold ‘Z’ nail heads. We reduced the frame height of her components to 28” so there would be no issue getting them through the doorway. She upgraded our complimentary sectional connectors to metal connectors which have a tighter grip on wood or tile floors. Livia changed the dimensions of our Sidney style ottomans and added rolling castors so she could move them underneath an end table when not needed. Her fabrics include a variety of our Sultry Suede fabrics available at the time of her order.
Alan wanted our Spenser style sofa but needed a couple of changes. He wanted to increase the overall length to 108”, change the back cushion style to a box back shape, change to two seat and two back cushions and increase the thickness of the seat cushions to a 5” border. Their order included a matching storage ottoman. Fabric choice was Omaha Charcoal.
William and Patricia needed smaller-scale furniture for their circa 1800 New England Cape and were in love with the Eliot style. They made a few adjustments--replacing the skirt with 4.5" spool feet, increasing the height of the arms, and decreasing seat depth. They asked if it was possible to create a single cushion love-seat instead of the standard multiple cushions. Of course - no problem. They didn't want the furniture to be too “matchy” so opted for complimentary fabrics--Canton Linen and Canton Natural with our Special Request fabrics Collage Sage and Dainty Mojito. William and Patricia are delighted with their new furniture--perfectly proportioned for their older home.
Kaley is a new homeowner and excited to purchase a custom sectional Made in America. Kaley wanted to add a couple of stainless steel cupholders to the arms of their sectional. These cupholders are really nice and removable for cleaning purposes. We have to increase the arm width by 1.5" for the cupholders to fit, which makes the arm width of our Crawford or Hall style 6.5". Kaley's fabric choice was Topeka Driftwood and their Crawfrord style sectional consist of a LF full sleeper, corner chair, and RF loveseat. Kaley upgraded their free ottoman to be storage for only the differnce in cost of the two ottomans ($80). The dimensions of the sectional are (L to R): 102.5" x 90.5"
Mary Grace and George
Mary Grace and her husband loved our Kingsley style and wanted to know if we would make a 2-piece sectional in that stand-alone style. They opted for no bottom round on the Kingsley style arms and wanted to increase the seat depth to 26”. Mary Grace needed the specific final dimensions of (L to R): 68” (overall depth of LF Chaise) x 105” in order to fit her space - 35” chaise and 70” sofa. They selected Bayport Midnight/Ocean as their fabric choice.
Amy loved our Roth style sectional but wanted to make a few simple custom changes. She wanted to use our 5” border seat cushions which adds an inch of thickness to the cushions and change to single seats for the two loveseat components. Amy selected Special Request fabric Underwood Autumn. The finished dimensions are: (L to R) 103.5” x 103.5”.
Ashley Google searched “build your own furniture” and found us on the internet (thank goodness). She loved our stand alone Kingsley style and wanted a sectional in that same style. She selected a LF love seat, corner wedge and RF loveseat. Ashley added nail head trim in our Old Gold ‘Z’ finish and 3” tapered wood feet. Her fabric selection is Rockville Ivory. Please be sure to read Ashley's testimony on our website (2016 - on 9/9/16) and View sectional in Ashley's home.
Anne wanted to redecorate her living room and wanted somthing a bit classy. She loved our Kingsley collection, but needed the two sofa's to be 4" shorter than our standard dimension of 88". No problem. We are a custom builder anyway, so making changes is easy and does not cost you an arm and a leg! Anne added our Hammered Oxford Finish nailheads which looked great! She wanted a large button-tufted cocktail ottoman to use for entertaining. The ottoman is 36" x 36" x 19" and the legs are our 8" turned style. Anne seleced our Polyurethane Atlanta Walnut as her fabric covering.
Martha wanted a large sectional for her family room and wanted high quality and Made in America. She fell in love with our Kingsley style collection and asked if we could make a sectional that looks similar, including the 5" border seat cushions that we use on our Kingsley style. We've done it many times! She chose our Microdenier Fairview Dark Blue fabric and sent in COM (customer's own material) for many of her throw pillows. Her custom Kingsley style sectional consists of a LF sofa, corner chair, armless chair and RF sofa. Finished dimensions are 120.5" x 146.5". She added (4) 16" throw pillows and (4) 18" throw pillows.
William wanted to add a chair to his living room and loved our Kingsley style. Because the chair would sit in a unique place in the room, he wanted to add decorative nails on the front and the back of the chair. He added our hammered oxford finish nailheads around the arm facings, around the front border and around the out-back of the chair. It looked great! He selected Bayport/Topaz Pecan as the fabric and Sultry Suede Sepia for the contrasting throw pillow.
Church Youth Group Room
Okay, you have to admit, this is definitely a fun looking sectional! It’s perfect for the youth group room at any church. And that is exactly what it is. A local church needed a fun and crazy sectional for their fun and crazy teenagersJ. They wanted a wild looking one, so we selected and sent them a variety of fabric swatches and asked them to choose fabrics for each component. They put together something certainly unique and the teenagers loved it! What a great idea! The sectional can seat a whole bunch of kids and components can be pulled out for individual use when needed. The Crawford style sectional is 181” x 191” x 181” and consists of (3) armless loveseats, (6) armless chairs, (1) corner wedge, (1) curved corner wedge, (2) corner chairs and (4) ottomans.
Bill and Dede
Bill and DeDe wanted quality furniture to put in a very small room that would serve two purposes: daily TV watching and an occasional guest bedroom. They rejected sleeper sofas because of space constraints and were looking for a sofa that they could “convert” into a bed by removing all cushions and placing a homemade platform on the sofa that would accommodate a twin size air mattress. After an endless online search, DeDe emailed us as a last resort. She sent us very specific emails with pictures and diagrams attached, asked lots of questions, requested samples, and even constructed a foam-core-board mock-up of the furniture just to be sure it would fit through the doorway of their small room. We started with our Hall style frame and made the needed modifications. The sectional pieces have a custom arm style based on a photo she shared with us, 4” tapered fruitwood feet, an overall length of 34”, an increased frame height of 37”, and an upgrade to metal sectional connectors. The arm width is 4”, arm height 23”, and the custom arms were inset to accommodate a T-seat cushion. The seat cushions have 5” borders and the back cushions are square bordered poly with fiber-wrapped and have (1) row of (2) buttons on each side. The custom ottomans are 22” in length and 15” deep. Bill and DeDe trusted us to make their furniture wishes come and we did just that. Fabric used was Rockville Laguna.
Beata was ready to replace her 30 year old (but very good quality) furniture in her family room. She needed a large sectional with firm seat and back cushions and a peformance fabric (duable and easly to clean) to be able to withstand the three big 'lounge lizards" in her home. They preferred single seat cushions as they frequently were in the horizonal position. She lives in an older home in Brooklyn and her hallway is narrow (30"), so that was a factor that needed consideration as she selected the frame style. Her custom Roth style sectional with bordered back style back cushions consists of a LF sofa, (2) armless sofas with LF returns and an ottoman. Her custom sized sectional is (L to R): 118" x 118" x 82.5". Beata opted for bun feet and used Microdenier Baltimore Merlot as her fabric covering.
Darla and Tim
Darla and Tim were shopping for high quality furniture on the web and found us. They wanted furniture for their family room and wanted it to be a work of art. They mixed fabrics and created an eye catching design that turned out great! They chose our Kingsley style for the sofa and loveseat and a custom sized Wordsworth round ottoman. We increased the standard ottoman to a 36” diameter with a height of 16.5”. Their fabrics include Bayport Burgundy/Cognac, Sultry Suede Sepia and COM. We included nailhead trim to the sofa and loveseat. Their creativity amazed us.
Penny was shopping for a new sectional and showed us a photo of the style she liked and asked us if we could build our version of that style. The sectional reminded us of our Crawford style, but it had slightly curved arms and a tight back (instead of back cushions). She also had a quite unusual request (but thoughtful and sweet) regarding the ottoman. Their dog is getting older and has a hard time jumping up on their current sofa. She wanted us to make an ottoman lower to the ground and with a solid frame on top to support the weight of the dog so he could use it as a stepping stone onto the sofa. What a great idea! Penny upgraded her seat cushions to a 5” border (more support) and selected Montego Lapis as her fabric covering. Her custom 2-piece sectional consists of a 30” LF chaise and a 62” RF loveseat. She added (2) 16” throw pillows.
Casey and his wife Janine made an addition to their home and wanted a large sectional using our Kingsley style arms. They were interested in leather at first, but we told them about our polyurethane fabric which is as tough as leather (if not tougher). It’s also spot cleanable with soap and water. They like idea of a two-toned sectional, so they used one color for the cushions and another color for the frame. We included a 7” front border (you can see this application across the front of the frame) and our Old Gold ‘Z’ nailheads around the arm facings and the front border. They opted for our poly back cushions and our 5” border seat cushions. Bun feet were used along with metal connectors which have a tighter grip on wood or tile floors which can be a bit uneven. Their modified Roth style 4-piece sectional consists of a LF loveseat, curved corner wedge, armless loveseat and RF sofa. Finished dimensions are (L to R): 156.5” x 130.5”. Polyurethane covering is Atlanta Pecan and Atlanta Bronze. Optional Throw Pillows are in Microdenier Baltimore Moss and Aubergine.
Ann found a sectional style she liked in a magazine and asked us if we could manufacture a similar style, but include angles to create two angled components on the ends. She created a sketch and emailed it to us showing the angles she needed (135 degrees) and indicated she wanted to incorporate an armless queen sleeper with Ultra Air Dream mattress in the middle between the two angled components. We started with the Crawford style frame, and although we couldn’t recreate the arm style in the photo exactly, we used a modified Keats style arm and sloped it down from the back of the frame to produce something similar. Her 3-piece custom sectional consists of a 36” left facing chair, 71” armless queen sleeper and a 30” RF chair. Ann chose our fiber down cushion package and Microdenier Baltimore Peacock fabric.
Jacki emailed us indicating that she was looking for a sofa between 84” and 89" long because she is 5’9” and wants to lay down on it. The sofa will go into her upstairs office (her husband calls it her “girl cave”) and she will be using it for naps and watching TV. She told us her doorway may be an issue as it is only 29” in width. She liked the style we built for Lenny (on this page), but did not want T-seat cushions. We made modifications to the frame so there would be no issue in getting the sofa up the stairs and through the doorway. Her modified Crawford style sofa is 88” in overall length, 74” in seat width, has a 28.5” frame height, a 7” arm width and 23” arm height. Jacki used our Byron style back cushions and increased the seat cushion border size to 5” (increased thickness of the seat cushions). She loved our soft Jackson Flannel fabric.
Nitya was looking for a new sectional for her home and loved the style we built for Jill (further down on this page). However, she needed a different configuration to fit her space and wanted to make some changes to the design. Nitya wanted a seat depth of 25” (very deep seat depth) which increased the overall depth of the sectional. The components are a LF loveseat, curved corner wedge, RF sofa and custom sized storage ottoman (32” x 22”). She added (4) 20’ x 20” throw pillows and (1) 18” x 18” throw pillow. Nitya selected Microdenier Baltimore Cashmere as her fabric with contrasting welt in Microdener Baltimore Black. Finished dimensions are (L to R): 108” x 127”.
Stuart and his wife wanted a pit group design for their family room, but had a certain space limits. They looked for high quality furniture Made in the U.S.A. and found our website. They liked our Roth style, so we customized the lengths of the LF and RF sofas and the storage ottomans in order to fit the space they had available. They selected various Special Request fabrics for their throw pillows and storage ottomans and Microfibre Bromley Sky as their sectional fabric. Finished dimensions are (L to Center to R): 115" x 122" x 115".
Sharon was redecorating her den and wanted high quality furniture, Made in the USA. Thank goodness she found us! She liked our Kingsley style and asked us to leave off the bottom round (curve) of the arm, making the arm come straight down. We were happy to make that custom change. Sharon ordered a sofa and loveseat and participated in our customer’s own material (COM) program, which is one of three fabric options we offer.
Susan called and said that she needed a sectional to fit her space which would require some customization on the length of one side. Not a problem. She liked our Kingsley style arms and wanted to incorporate them into a sectional style using square bordered back cushions. We customized our Roth style frame and added our Kingsley style arms. She upgraded to our premium support package which re-enforces the frame and adds (1) inch to the seat cushion borders. Her Kingsley storage ottoman is 37” x 25” x 18”. She requested our 2” tapered wood feet (fruitwood finish) and added (6) 20 x 20” throw pillows. Fabric choice was Sunbrella Linen Sesame and finished dimensions are (L to R): 91.5” x 105.5”.
JoAnn was looking for new furniture for a remodeled room in her home and loved Sue’s skirted sectional style in this custom inspiration gallery. She wanted to maximize seating in her small space and chose our curved corner wedge which has the same seat depth as the other components of the sectional. She needed a specific length for her space and we were easily able to accommodate making length changes to both the LF and RF components. JoAnn chose our Roth style sectional and changed the rounded back cushions to a bordered back style (like our Yeats sectional style) and used our poly back cushion option. She increased the seat cushion border to 5" (from our standard 4"), added a 7.5” kick-pleat skirt and (3) 16” throw pillows. Fabric choice was Microdenier Baltimore Honey. Finished dimensions are (L to R) 82” x 93”.
Patrece, a designer in Georgia, was working with a client that wanted a sectional in a special Sunbrella fabric for their sunroom. They were especially interested in high quality furniture made in the USA. Patrece liked our Crawford style and asked if we could add a second arm to the recliner component so her client could rest both arms. That’s an easy customization for us to make. The client wanted a little more neck support, so we added 3” to the cushion height making the overall height about 40”. They wanted supportive seat and back cushions, so they chose our poly back cushion option, our standard seat cushion option and opted for our 5” border seat cushion (adds thickness to the seat cushion). Finished dimensions of their custom 4-piece Crawford style sectional: (L to R): 90.5" x 121". Fabric covering is special Sunbrella Simone Flame. Throw pillows were C.O.M.
Cheryl and Richard
Cheryl and Richard were redecorating their home and wanted quality furniture made in the USA. They loved our Kingsley style and asked if we could manufacture two custom sofas as a button-tufted, tight-back style (yes we can!). They also wanted to add nail head trim around the arm facings and around the front border. They fell in love with our new polyurethane Atlanta Bronze fabric which it durable and easy to clean and maintain. Their custom Kingsley style sofas are beautiful.
Zoe wanted a small “pit” design for her bedroom that incorporated a storage ottoman. She had the space in mind that she wanted to fill, so she told us the dimensions she had and the style she liked. We created a custom 2-piece Byron style sectional which consisted of a custom sized armless loveseat with right facing return and a custom RF love seat. Finished dimensions are (L to R): 57” x 95”. The storage ottoman is 59.5" long x 21.5" deep. Zoe participated in our C.O.M. program for the fabric covering.
Ben and his wife were looking for quality furniture made in the USA. Ben said he and his sons were “big guys” and wanted to include our premium support package on his furniture (re-enforced frame and increased border size of seat cushion). They wanted a sectional for the living room and a sleeper for the den. They loved our Henley style arm and wanted to use it on their sectional, so we modified our Crawford sectional style to make that happen. They chose our poly back cushion option and 3” tapered wood feet. Ben selected multiple fabrics (Microdenier Baltimore Chinoand Special Request fabric Berkeley Caper) for their custom style sectional and our Polyurethane Atlanta Bronze and Microfibre Montego Toast for the matching Queen Sleeper (with Air Dream mattress upgrade). The modified Crawford style sectional consists of an 81” LF sofa, corner chair, 56” RF loveseat and (2) storage ottomans.
Ben and Rosa
Ben and Rosa visited a high-end furniture store in Destin, Florida and saw a perfect (high quality) sectional that would allow their entire family to comfortably watch movies. However, there were two problems: the cost was astronomical and they couldn’t customize to get the exact fit for their family room. They went home and searched the web and found us. They loved the Nancy and Bob style arms (in this section), so we modified our Byron style sectional to include that arm style. They shared with us the dimensions they had to work within (including a special angle for the corner wedge) and we built the sectional for a perfect fit. Among the various changes, they increased the border size of the seat cushions to 5”(making the cushion thicker), increased the seat depth by 3” (making it 24.5”), added old Gold Z nailheads, block wood feet, and selected fiber down seat cushions. They used our Chenille Modesto Wheat for the sectional and an assortment of our fabrics and special request fabrics for the various throw pillows.
Lois wanted to replace a sofa in her home that was very uncomfortable. She wanted a queen size sleeper, but didn’t have a lot of space in the room. She liked our Crawford style and wanted to know if we could make a 2-arm style (and we can very easily). Lois wanted us to make several changes to the style. She wanted to increase the border size of the seat cushions to 5” (making the cushion thicker), increase the back cushion height by 1”, add old Gold Z nailheads, and make a matching large Roth style storage ottoman (52” x 25”). She chose our fiber down cushion package and participated in our C.O.M. (customer's own material) program. Her furniture was gorgeous and she loved it!
Sylvia and her husband moved from Indiana to Texas and needed new furniture for their home. They wanted a large sectional and liked our Byron style, but wanted to make some changes. They increased their LF sofa to be 109” (providing 4 seats), changed the feet to our 3” tapered wood feet, and changed the back cushion style to our Crawford style “middle” bordered back style making the overall height 37”. They liked the idea of a storage ottoman and wanted to increase the size to 39” overall length x 36” overall depth. They can store many blankets and other items in their large storage ottoman!

Kayla converted her guest bedroom into a teen gaming room, but wanted it to also function as a bedroom when needed. She was looking for large sofa sleeper sectional with an urban loft look that would match her existing ottomans. Everything she found in stores looked cheap and didn’t come in the fabric or color she wanted. After finding our website, she designed a modified Crawford style 2-piece sectional incorporating two twin size sleepers. Kayla asked for a 6” arm width (vs. 5”) and we needed to adjust her frame height due to her hallway space limitation and narrow door opening. Kayla upgraded to our 5” seat cushion borders (adding to the thickness of the seat cushions) and wanted a single seat and back cushion on the sleepers. She also changed from the standard T-back style cushion to the bordered, box back style back cushion. She used multiple fabrics – our Atlanta Pecan (polyurethane material soon to be available on our website) on the frame and Sultry Suede Saddle on the seat and back cushions. Her 2-piece sectional is 112” in overall length. Kayla's custom sectional sofa in her home
Debbie was looking for a long, modern, sleek, contemporary sofa. She browsed the custom creations on these two pages and loved our fan pleated arm style.

We used our Hughes style frame and made changes to create the look she wanted: switched the rolled arm style to fan pleated, added 4" to the seat depth (making it 26"), added bun feet, and changed the back cushion style to our bordered back style. Debbie upgraded the (2) 16" throw pillows to 18" throw pillows. Her fabric is Microdenier Baltimore Espresso.
Ted and Sandra
Ted and Sandra wanted to replace a sofa in their den that was sitting in a perfect space for a sectional. They were so happy to find our website with our high quality construction and were thrilled that all our furniture is Made in the USA.

Diana was looking for a sectional to work in the space of her new family room. She was considering incorporating a chaise, but she browsed this page of our website and liked the concept of a stump-end (like in Mike's design) because there would be more seating options for guests or her schnauzer :-). Diana liked our Byron style, but wanted to increase the seat depth by 1.5" making it 23.5". She also upgraded to 5" border seat cushions and opted to participate in our C.O.M. program where the customer provides their own upholstering material. Finished dimensions of her 2-piece Byron style sectional are (L to R) 74" x 119.5".
Robin and her husband have a small living room had just bought a new fireplace insert when she called hoping we could customize a loveseat so they could enjoy the fire together. She mentioned she wanted all down cushions because the only loveseat has really "loved" is the one her dad had with down cushions. Robin and her husband recently moved to Colorado and they love the western themed furniture, so they chose our Kingsley style and incorporated nail heads into their design. Since the back of the loveseat would be seen upon entering their home, they added Old gold 'Z' nailheads on the back of the loveseat for more visual interest. Their multiple fabrics include our new Microdenier Bayport Pearl (soon to be added) and Microfiber Fairview Dark Brown.
Art and his wife needed to replace their loveseat and wanted a piece a little longer than what they currently had. They liked our Eliot style, but wanted a T-seat cushion and a higher armrest for more back/head support when laying down and watching TV. We modified our Eliot style loveseat to be 71" in overall length and raised the arm height 5.5" to 27.5". They selected Special Request fabric Geldof River.
Jill, a designer in New York, had a specific style of sofa in mind but wanted the high quality construction that we offer and just couldn't find it until she found us on the internet!

Jill's custom 2-piece scattered-back sectional consists of a LF loveseat and a RF chaise with a 10" kick-pleat skirt. Finished dimension are (L to R): 118" x 62" (depth of chaise). We increased the border size of the seat cushions to 5" (increased the thickness of the cushion) and Jill chose our fiber down seat cushion and our standard back cushions.

Office Chairs and Restaurant Booths
While the vast majority of our furniture is for the residential setting, we do manufacture for commercial establishments. We built 6 chairs for an auto repair business for use in their waiting room and 10 booths for a new restaurant, Chez Liberty, now open in Knoxville, Tennessee. For both applications, we used our soft-to-the-touch polyurethane fabric which is as tough as shiny patent leather and easy to clean with soap and water. Our Atlanta polyurethane has a supple hand and creates a soft pebbled leather-look. We have a variety of colors and it works well with traditional, transitional and contemporary designs.
Barbara had seen a sectional in a local store using dark leather on the frame and lighter color fabric on the cushions. She loved the way it looked and asked us if we could do something similar. We sent her some of our leather and fabrics so that she could choose the right combination. Barbara loved the casual look of our Byron style back cushions, but wanted the straight arms of our Crawford style. She wanted thicker seat cushions (she liked that look) and our fiber down cushion package. We added twin-wheel casters to her storage ottoman at her request. Her 4-piece modified Crawford sectional consists of a LF chair, corner chair and (2) armless chairs. Finished dimensions (L to R) are: 68.5" x 87.5". The leather is our Caprone and the fabric is Sultry Suede Dijon. Barbara added (6) 16" throw pillows in an all-down fill. Fabrics include Sultry Suede Cocoa, Lichen and Golden Rod.
Kathleen and her husband are tall and have trouble finding furniture that fits them. They were in the market for a chair and a half and ottoman and found us! Kathleen had fallen in love with a fabric she found at a fabric store and wanted to participate in our C.O.M. (customer's own material) program. She liked our Kingsley style, but wanted to use rounded back cushions like our Roth style. Kathleen asked us to increase the seat depth of her Kingsley chair and a half to 24" and seat height to 21". The overall length is 55". Kathleen added our optional Old Gold 'Z' finish nailheads around the arm facings and front border and around the front border of her Kingsley storage ottoman. Both her chair and a half and the storage ottoman have our all-down cushion package and bun feet (fruitwood finish). What a plush chair and a half and ottoman!
Virginia Tech was renovating the women's volleyball locker room for the upcoming 2010 season. The design team wanted furniture that would be more residential looking vs. commercial looking, but needed quality construction that would last. They also wanted to support Made in the USA and we are so glad they found us! They needed plenty of seating for team meetings and wanted to incorporate a large round ottoman for extra seating and for fun! Their custom Crawford style 2-arm sofas are 96" in length and the custom round ottoman is 60" in diameter. We increased the border size of the seat cushions by 1" (adding thickness to the cushions) and used our poly back cushions for support. They chose Microdenier Baltimore Buckwheat as the fabric covering and black finish for the 2" tapered wood feet. Throw pillows are in Microdenier fabrics Baltimore Coffee and Rouge.
Vivian fell in love with Brenda's sectional in this section and wanted one just like it for her home but using different colors and slightly different dimensions. Vivian selected our Microfibre Fairview Wine and combined it with a C.O.M. fabric that she found at a local fabric store. We think her combination of fabric turned out beautifully. To build Vivian's custom sectional, we started with our Roth style frame and used our Crawford middle bordered box style back cushions, which makes her sectional about 37" overall height. We added a visible "floor length" 7.5" kick-pleat skirt (sides that connect to other pieces do not have a skirt panel). Vivian upgraded the free ottoman to be storage and added a matching skirt. Her sectional consists of a LF loveseat, corner chair, and RF loveseat making the finished dimensions (L to R): 90" x 90".
Melissa's denim sectionals with cupholders
Melissa's fiance always wanted denim furniture, and what a great wedding gift this furniture will make! They have limited space in their family room and not enough room for end tables, so she chose the option of our removable stainless steel cup holders in the arms. This furniture will be used daily, so they opted for our poly back cushions which offers the most support and holds shape very well. Melissa's Crawford style sectionals consist of a LF loveseat, RF chaise, LF chair, RF loveseat and free ottoman. The fabric is Denim Indigo.
Darsh and Jagadish
Darsh and Jagadish were searching for a living room sofa set that would provide seating for entertaining yet have a slightly whimsical appearance. They had some very specific design characteristics in mind and could not find what they wanted in retail stores. They were also looking for a high quality, domestically made product to support our economy. CarolinaChair was the ideal manufacturer to create this furniture. They started with a Hughes sofa and made several changes: simplified arms (our Valerie style arms shown on this page), tight back, single seat cushion with no welt, and 3" tapered wood feet. The original request of two chairs was upgraded to two chair & halfs in order to allow more flexible seating options. They selected Special Request Fabric Chloe Amber for the sofa and ottoman and Picayune Ginger for the two chair and a halfs. They finished off the set with contrasting 16"x16" throw pillows two for the sofa and one each for the chairs.
Sue and Tom
Sue and Tom wanted to redecorate their recreation room and turn it into a kids' game room with lots of seating. They decided on two Crawford style sectionals and asked to use the bordered box style (middle backs) of our Crawford style instead of the standard T-backs. Sue wanted the furniture fabric to be colorful and fun. Mission accomplished! Her fabric combination includes a variety of our Microfibre and Sultry Suede fabrics. She added several throw pillows in various sizes and shapes. Their 2-piece sectional consists of a LF chaise and RF full size sleeper. Finished dimensions are (L to R): 56" (overall depth of chaise) x 97". Their 3-piece sectional consists of a LF queen sleeper, curved corner wedge and RF recliner. Finished dimensions are (L to R): 120.5" x 76. They upgraded their free ottoman to be a storage ottoman. View additional photo
Karen needed a sofa and chair that would work in their living room which is also their "family room." She was looking for something nice to entertain with - but comfortable enough to lounge in and watch movies. When looking in stores, she found furniture that worked style-wise, but the fabric or size would not work. Karen sent us a link to a style that she liked and asked us if we could build something similar, but to the length she needed (88") and using the fabric she wanted. The style was similar enough to one of our styles that we said yes ... we could build something similar. Karen selected Microdenier Baltimore Cocoa as her fabric and participated in our COM program for her contrasting 20" x 20" throw pillows. She added a matching swivel chair with a skirt. We are showing two photos of the same sofa the back cushions are simply arranged differently for this photo.
Terri and Paul
Terri and Paul are empty nesters and were ready to replace their furniture. They wanted a large sectional that would allow for maximum seating (eight in their immediate family). They liked our Roth style, but wanted to use the Kingsley arm style without the curved bottom round (making the arm straight). They wanted to upgrade the free ottoman to be storage and increased the size to 42" x 42". They selected 2" tapered wood feet and Microdenier Baltimore Black as their fabric choice. Their 5-piece sectional consists of a LF recliner, armless loveseat, curved corner wedge, armless chair and RF sofa with finished dimensions (L to R): 132" x 156.5". Terri e-mailed us after receiving the sectional and said they have separated the RF sofa from the rest of the sectional as it works best in their room that way. They like having one end open with no arms and love the flexibility of being able to put it all back together when needed!
Karen was replacing existing furniture in her small family room. She wanted to be able to look from her front door to the back door without it looking cluttered or over furnished. She decided on a small sectional for the space. She liked our Crawford style but wanted some changes. To fit her space, we customized the length of her two 1-arm chairs and paired them with a curved corner chair which offers usable seating space. Karen's changes included using the center back cushions of the Crawford style, making single seat and back cushions, increasing the border height of the seat cushions to 5" (adding thickness), decreasing the arm height to about 20", and adding 3" tapered wood feet (fruitwood finish) She chose our standard seat cushions and our poly back cushions for firmness and support. Sultry Suede Saddle is the fabric selection. Finished dimensions of her 3-piece sectional (L to R): 85" x 85".
Allison needed a sleeper sofa and liked our Crawford sectional style but wanted two arms on her sleeper. Not a problem! We simply added an arm to our 1-arm queen sleeper. Her fabric is Microdenier Baltimore Cornflower.

They were now ready to refurbish their family room at home and had no doubt where to come for quality built furniture. They wanted a versatile sectional - one that could have multiple configurations. Julie saw the cup holder option on this page and wanted to incorporate them into her design. They chose our Crawford style sectional and the components are a LF recliner, RF recliner, LF chaise, RF loveseat and storage ottoman. We have displayed two possible configurations in our photos.

Janine, Designer 2
Janine, a NY designer, has placed several orders with us for her clients. She wanted a sofa for herself and selected us to be the manufacturer for her personal furniture.

Janine chose our fiber down cushion package and participated in our C.O.M. program for her fabric selection.
Helm and Mary
Helm and Mary liked our Eliot style, but wanted to make some dimension changes to accommodate their short stature. For both the loveseats and chairs, they wanted to decrease the seat height to 17.5" and reduce the seat depth to 20". They also asked us to extend the arms to the front of the frame (eliminating the T-seat cushions) and change the back cushions to be T-back cushions (like our English style with rounded corners). Poly back cushions and our standard seat cushions were selected. Helm and Mary opted for no skirt and 3" tapered wood feet. Fabric covering is Special Request fabric Tabernas Linen.
Carol was remodeling her condo and converting a bedroom into a combination office/den. Because the space was small, she wanted compact chairs with ottomans. She couldn't find what she was looking for at reasonable prices, so she searched online and found our website. Carol sent us a photo of a style she liked and we used that photo as a guide as we built her two chairs. Her custom chairs are 33" overall length, 35.5" overall depth and 37" overall height. They have bordered T-back cushions, 5" border seat cushions, and 3" tapered wood feet. The custom ottomans are 23" length x 16" depth. She used Sunbrella Canvas Vellum as her fabric covering.
Joanne wanted a chaise for her bedroom for reading purposes. However, her space was very small. She called and asked what we would recommend given her space constraints.

We suggested and built a custom Roth RF (Right-facing) chaise with the following dimensions: 28" overall length, 20" seat width, and 50" overall depth. She opted for our poly back cushions and we also increased the height of the back cushions by 2" making the overall height 37".

Janie chose our fiber-down cushion package and Microfibre Bromley Chocolate as her fabric covering.
Nancy and Bob
Nancy and Bob had some space constraints in a room they wanted to furnish, so they started looking in local retail stores for a smaller sofa and a chair and a half. They found some styles they liked - but weren't happy with the fabrics available or they liked the fabrics - but not the prices. Then they found us! They sent us a photo of a style they liked and asked us if we could build something similar. The style was very close to our Kingsley style. To make the modifications, we slightly flared the Kingsley arm and cut off the bottom "round" of the arm. We also inset the Kingsley arms to create the T-seat cushions and we decreased the arm and seat height by 2.5". We applied our Old Gold "Z" nailheads around the arm panels and front of the frame. Their custom Kingsley style (80") sofa and (53") chair and a half has Microdenier Baltimore Lichen as the fabric covering. Nancy and Bob chose our standard seat cushions and our Poly with fiber wrap back cushions.

Sandy and her husband were building a mountain home in North Carolina and had a room that was very difficult to find and place furniture that would encompass a fireplace and TV. She searched everywhere before finding us! She loved the options she found when looking at this custom inspiration page. Sandy called us and explained what she was looking for in terms of a "conversational" type sofa and then sent us a drawing of what she had in mind. We built two 75" 1-arm curving sofas and based the frame off our Roth sectional style. She wanted our Crawford style bordered back cushions, making the overall height about 37". Sandy chose our poly back cushions and our standard seat cushions.

Melissa and Eric
Melissa and Eric wanted new chairs for their dining room table. They liked our Whitney style welted border Parsons Chairs with exposed wood legs in mahogany finish and asked us to make the top of the back of the chairs straight (vs. the arc or curve). They also wanted to be able to change the look of their chairs with slipcovers, but wanted us to make a slight variation in our slipcover style and showed us a photo of one they liked. They chose Sunbrella Canvas White as the fabric covering and Sunbrella Sailcloth Salt for the slipcovers.
Ben and Kelly
Ben and Kelly sent us an e-mail asking if we could build a double-sided (sociable) sofa in one of our styles. We told them we could and that we would just need to know 1) which style they liked, and 2) if they had a large enough entryway to get a BIG sofa into their home. They selected our Hughes sofa style, Chenille Erie as their fabric covering, and our fiber-down cushion package. The Hughes style double-sided sofa has an overall depth of 72".
Kathy and Mike
Kathy and Mike had a large family room to furnish. They had a rug in the room with multiple bright colors and they wanted to incorporate those colors into in the sectional design. They have three boys and wanted to be sure to choose a "performance" fabric (durable and easy to clean with soap and water) and cushions that would be more apt to withstand the rough and tumble play of their children. They selected our standard seat cushions and poly back cushions. They liked our Roth style sectional but preferred our taller bordered box back cushions (middle backs of our Crawford style) which increased the overall height to 37". They wanted both chaises to have square front ends and be 65" in overall depth. To make their guests feel like they are sleeping in their own bed, they upgraded to our AirDream mattress. Finished dimensions of their 7-piece sectional (L to R) are 192" x 204.5".

Because of the room's proximity to the kitchen, it was the favorite place for her husband and kids to watch TV - in spite of its small size. Her husband was unhappy with the chairs they had in the room, so they looked for a small sectional, but to no avail. Nothing would fit their small space. Thank goodness they found us! We asked the measurements of the space they had to fill, and we modified our frames to perfectly fit their space. They chose our Crawford sectional style and we added 5.5" to the length of each armless chair. To better fit under a window, we lowered the frame height to 30". Alden requested our firmer poly back cushions and extra firm seat cushions. Finished dimensions are (L to R): 66" x 66". Fabric choice is Microfibre Bromley Cherry.

Katy was expecting her first child and wanted a comfortable swivel-glider and ottoman for the baby's room.

Katy selected Sunbrella Canvas Red as the fabric covering and participated in our C.O.M. program by sending us Gros-Grain ribbon for her decorative design.

Elaine liked our Eliot style which we offer in our stand alone collection, but she wanted a sectional. She thought the Eliot style was a "classic design" that would last forever. So, we told her that we could modify our Roth style sectional to look very close to our Eliot style. Modifications to our Roth style included changing the arm style and arm height (to 21.5"), insetting each arm to allow for T-seat cushions, changing to bordered T-backs, and adding a 6.5" kick-pleat skirt.

(Note: this quality construction is not found at the big box retailers or anywhere furniture is imported). Ed is an architect and likes the angular details of the Arts & Crafts style. They started with our Crawford style, but wanted to make several changes. They wanted the arms to be "chunkier", so we increased the arm width to 6". They wanted their sofa to be 96" in length and have 2 seat cushions and 2 back cushions. For added support in the seat and back cushions, they increased the border size of their seat cushions to 5" (adding thickness to the seat cushions) and chose our poly back cushions. Further custom changes included reducing the frame height to 29", reducing the overall height to 33.5", reducing the arm height to 23" and increasing the seat depth by 1" making the seat depth 22.5". Our Microdenier Baltimore fabric was selected for its durability and ease of cleaning and gentle shade of the Cocoa color would not overpower their cozy bungalow living room. Their custom storage ottoman is 34" x 25".
Table Mountain Inn
Table Mountain Inn located in Golden, Colorado wanted to replace the queen sleepers in their executive suites. Amber contacted us after discovering our website because they needed furniture that would hold up over time and provide the needed comfort for guests. They reviewed this custom inspiration page extensively and asked us to build a sleeper style that incorporated several concepts from various styles. Specifically, they wanted the arm style of Tressa, a "tight back style" like Valerie, bun feet like Linda and a 2-seat cushion version like Laura. We started with our Roth style frame and made the custom adjustments mentioned, including increasing the seat cushion borders to 5". They upgraded all six sleepers (only showing two in the photo above) with our AirDream mattress. They participated in our C.O.M. program for their fabric selection. The Table Mountain Inn looks like a wonderful place to stay when you plan to visit the Rockies: www.tablemountaininn.com.
Dr. Toth was furnishing two small rooms in his medical facility for out-of-town patients that needed to spend a few days while undergoing treatment. Since space was an issue in the small rooms, the sleepers could be no longer than 67". Dr. Toth liked our Hall style, so we decreased the arm width by 1.5" (making the new arms 3.5" in width). This small custom adjustment made the 2-arm sleeper 67" in length - a perfect fit! To make his patients as comfortable as possible, he upgraded to our AirDream mattress for both sleepers. His fabric choice was Microfibre Bromley Cherry.

Sue's Custom Sectional Sofa
Sue was helping her dad (Carl) find a sectional for his home. He wanted a traditional style, and liked our Roth, with some changes. Sue asked us to add a skirt and change the rounded back cushions to a bordered back style (like on our Yeats style). Her father wanted supportive back cushions, so she chose our poly back cushion package which is our firmest back cushion option, however, the cushions hold their shape very well. For added support and to raise the seat height 1", we increased the seat cushion borders to 5" (vs. 4"). Fabric color was very important for matching other decor in the room and our Twill Plus Crystal Blue was perfect for the sectional and the (3) 16" throw pillows. Twill Plus Medium Blue was selected for the free ottoman which will be used in another room of the home. Carl's custom Roth sectional consists of a LF chair, curved corner wedge, and a RF loveseat.
