Unique Custom Millwork made specially for your home

Custom Millwork and Furnishings are an integral part of many Interior Design projects. From tiny nooks in small apartments to open lofts with massive ceiling heights, custom pieces are often essential in maximizing storage or helping to partition sections of a space.

Many of our clients come to us looking for creative solutions to awkward spaces or ways to produce custom furniture for distinct rooms. We pride ourselves on resolving these situations with unique ideas. Our talented team of designers, craftsmen, and upholsterers will sketch ideas, create three-dimensional renderings, and fabricate the pieces to match the plans exactly. We encourage our clients to share concepts, offer feedback on all sketches and renderings, and really think about how the pieces function as this will be a fixture in their space for years to come.

We welcome big ideas and small ideas alike, from dining banquets and tables to media centers and Murphy Beds. Some of our past work includes:

In order to make the room appear taller, the 3F Living team designed this upholstered headboard to extend to the soffit. Incorporating an accent fabric with vertical stripes only further accentuated the verticality.

The idea stemmed from the couple wanting a headboard that would signify their marriage and the coming together of two people.

A pair of reclaimed slabs of wood were brought together to create this headboard. Once it was delivered we mounted it to the wall. We also mounted a cubby on each side of the bedframe for personal items and reading material.
