How we are Different (and Better!) than Amateur Furniture Builders

Like many handmade furniture businesses, we started out building tables in our garage. Now, Rustic + Modern produces rustic, modern and industrial style furniture pieces of the highest quality around. But what is it that sets us apart from the furniture builders who are still working out of their garages?


While there are amateur furniture builders out there who turn-out some impressive work, for the most part they don’t have the training, equipment or quality of wood to create furniture that can rival our pieces. We offer wood quality, craftsmanship, and customer service that you just can’t find anywhere.

Solid Wood

While many amateur furniture builders rely on engineered woods, veneers, or inexpensive wood picked up at home improvement stores, we use only the best 100% solid wood. Our solid wood furniture is durable, easy to care for, and long-lasting.

Using natural solid wood makes each furniture piece unique since it highlights the wood’s natural beauty. You can learn more about the woods and stains we offer by clicking here. For the parts of our furniture that aren’t wood, we use natural and forged components chosen for their strength and design quality.

Professional Craftsmanship

The skills needed to turn out a high-quality wood furniture piece aren’t something you can learn overnight. It requires many, many hours of practice and an unwavering commitment to excellence. This is another thing that sets Rustic + Modern apart from amateur furniture builders. We’ve spent countless hours learning about and building furniture, and are constantly adding to our skills.

Each of Rustic + Modern’s furniture pieces is designed to become an heirloom. You won’t find any slip-shod craftsmanship in our collections. But don’t just take our word for it. If you contact us to request an appointment to visit our design studio, you can come check our furniture out for yourself.

Award-Winning Service

Another thing you won’t get with amateur furniture builders is award-winning customer service. Since the very beginning, Rustic + Modern has been dedicated to appreciative and positive customer support. Last year, our work was recognized with the “Best Of Customer Service” honor on Houzz. These honors are based on a variety of factors, including the number and quality of client reviews.

You need only read some of our 5-star reviews to learn that our clients are consistently happy with both the quality of our furniture and our friendly, professional customer service. We hope to make you just as happy with your next furniture purchase.
