The Woods of Reed Design

“Suppose you lived in a house surrounded by acres of trees.  What particular type of tree would you want flourishing on your land?”

                Hardwoods, exotic woods, reclaimed, long grain, stain grade…..decisions, decisions, decisions. 

                Woods are wonderful.  Reed Design crafts using them all:  maple, walnut, pecan, alder, mesquite, ash, mahogany, sapele, aspen, chestnut, padauk, cypress,  rosewood, poplar, cherry, bodark, fur, oak, hickory, birch, knotty alder,  and in rare instances we are asked to make something out of pine or cedar.  Additionally, on many occasions we have used special materials supplied by our customers;  Granddad's old barn wood, Dad's cypress found in storage, door surrounds from an ancestor's home,  trim molding from Grand-moms home, beams from the farm storage building, flooring from an old warehouse, and walls from old rail-road cars……the list goes on and on.



To think of and create by clever use of imagination

By definition, manufacturing covers a number of areas:  furniture, doors, artwork, soft-goods (drapes, throws, pillows), candles,  or decorative iron work.  Our business model:  to manufacture a look, style, feel … complete your vision.  We don’t stop here, however.  You want a reproduction of a timeless  heirloom, be it a piece of furniture or an antique door, we are in our comfort zone.  We have designed hidden compartments to hide an antique gun collection and keepsakes. We have buried in the cabinet inscriptions by those commissioning the piece……..limitless possibilities.



“If you could erect a lighthouse that would guide you toward satisfying what your mind has imagined”


Many of our inspirations come from original pieces. Sometimes, we will reproduce them as accurately as possible, while at other times we will take a detail that we like and design a completely new piece of furniture around that feature.  Oftentimes, we start the design process from scratch. We get our inspiration from our customers such as a picture from a magazine or an idea brewing in their imagination.   Whatever you have in your mind's eye, we can bring it to life. 

Reed Design also has the ability to bring an old piece back to life. Reupholstering, refinishing, or repurposing are all within our capabilities.

We are craftsmen.


We try to display a large range of skills in our store. We take pride in our work, which we hope is evident in our antique replicas and custom designs. We try to go far beyond just creating furniture that resembles furniture you see elsewhere but we try to create both a classic and timeless piece destined to be an heirloom. We use age-old techniques, and breathe soul and lasting-quality into our products.  We  use high quality hard wood (see list of woods below).
