In 2004, as part of renovating my home, I had the contractor remove an entire wall in which the coat closet was located. My intent was to replace the closet with an armoire, but after six months of searching for a ready made unit, I saw nothing that met either my functional needs or aesthetic taste. I then contacted Art Woodstone Studio about fabricating a custom made armoire designed to satisfy both my technical and aesthetic requirements. At our first meeting we discussed the dimensions, materials, color, wood types, finishes, budget, and my desire for a unique design. About two weeks later they came back to me with six different original designs, created by their lead craftsman. All the designs were outstanding and my wife and I had a difficult time selecting the one to fabricate, but we finally did and the project moved ahead. The process was very collaborative, and at certain steps along the way, I would meet with the Studio's project team to view progress of the work, including wood selections, samples of stains colors, and finishes. In the end the armoire was completed, delivered, and installed on time. It is a beautiful piece which receives rave reviews from visitors to our home. The finished piece more than met our expectations and I would not hesitate to recommend Art Woodstone Studio to anyone interested in unique designs and quality workmanship.

From inception to completion of our projects it was a pleasure working with Erick, Mitch and George. We commissioned the studio to build custom shelving, a table and a bench for our new home. Erick was extremely attentive to our needs and wishes as he creatively assisted with the designs and installations. Our finished products are beautiful as well as functional. The team's attention to detail and their superb craftsmanship are evident and surpassed our expectations. We are happy and fortunate to have met and worked with these talented individuals.

Dear Mitch, Erick & George,
Gary & I want to thank you for the professional service that you provided during our multiple projects with Art Wood Stone in the last year.
The custom built-in and furniture that we collaborated on in our Family Room is exactly what we visualized for improving and completing the whole room.
The custom furniture that you matched with the existing furniture in our Guest Bedroom completes that room perfectly.
The custom Rosewood piece that you provided for my Professional Interiors business office is functional as well as beautiful.
All of the finished furniture that we have received from Art Wood Stone has been of the highest quality and our experience with you has been wonderful.
We appreciate your attention to detail and conscientious commitment to maintaining the natural look of the materials that you work with.
We look forward to future projects.

It is a great pleasure to write this letter to share with others are favorable experience of working with Art Wood Stone Studio. In short, the finished built-in entertainment center you completed for us exceeded our expectations.
We selected AWS for the way in which you handle the renderings and your enthusiasm for the project. You were very gracious and accommodating as we worked together to achieve the final design. Aesthetically pleasing with materials used elsewhere in the home, the built-in resides as if it has always been there. We are enjoying the piece immensely and it is a continual source of compliments from our friends and family.
Thank you for a job well done!

Dear Mitch and Tea,
Craig and I just want to thank you for the exceptional experience we had working with you. In our first visit you asked all the right questions to understand just exactly what we needed for the Craig’s home office. To our amazement you sent us computerized renderings of the visions we had only thought about. Sometimes it is hard for people to understand what an artist has in mind but thee renderings gave a clear perspective of not only what was in the you (the artist) head but also what was in our (customers’) minds. These visions helped us tweak the design into just exactly what Craig had wanted for years.
The hardest part was waiting for finished Product but you consulted with us all along the way, making sure that each piece fit our space, even taking into consideration a heating vent. While your computer renderings were wonderful, the finished product is even better. And as important as the design is the quality of the product. The woods are amazing to touch and look at. Truly each piece is work of art. I am sure we will enjoy this furniture for years to come.
