About Elwood Design Co.

At Elwood Design Co., we build handmade hardwood furniture that inspires joy, sparks conversation, and brings people together. Whether it’s an art installation in a coffee shop, a heirloom dining table or a custom desk to elevate your work experience our goal remains the same: to add beauty to your life.  

From the very beginning we set out to build furniture that you won't want to throw away some day. Furniture made from high quality materials and none of the mass produced shortcuts. We don't try to mimic or fake woods with laminates or veneers, instead we search out the highest quality natural materials and try our best to highlight their natural beauty. Each piece is unique and is connected to both the owner and the maker of it.

Who We Work With

We work with both residential and commercial clients. Whether it's a custom dining table for your home or 50 dining tables for your restaurant, we are able to provide straightforward quotes so you can make the best decision for your family or business. Often we can get a quote to you within 24-48 hours. Lead times run between 6 - 12 weeks depending on the scale of the project.

We've also worked hard to establish relationships within the custom community to provide for the parts of our furniture we don't do in-house. That means relationships with metalworkers, CNC shops, leatherworkers, and upholsterers. If on the rare occasion we can't build something for you we can often give a recommendation of someone local who specializes in what you need.

We also work often with interior designers, architects, and builders and offer a trade discount of 10%.

Owner // Lead Furniture Maker

For me, Elwood Design is a dream in the making. After a history of working in construction trades and more recently overseeing large commercial remodels, I began making custom furniture as a hobby and found a real passion for making heirloom quality furniture. We now have multiple employees and are growing every year.

We are located at 1547 W. Struck Ave, Unit M in Orange, CA. We would love to have you drop in for a visit to see the shop. Just shoot us an email to schedule a visit.
