our services

we perform a wide-range of services, including custom furniture and accessories, window treatments, and restoration and repair for all residential and commercial spaces. unlike most furniture and design companies, all of our products are designed, engineered, handcrafted, and manufactured in our location in torrance. our on-site manufacturing workshop features a group of over 20 dedicated and skilled upholsterers, as well as state-of-the-art equipment and technology.
