Custom pieces made for the Waldorf Astoria in New York City

Over the past 20 years we have had the opportunity to create quite a few unique and custom pieces of furniture for The Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Manhattan. These pieces are one of a kind and are designed to blend with existing decor. Many of these works required old – world techniques in order to achieve the desired results such as carving and specialized veneer work.

Custom furniture from Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City

waldorf planterThese are a few of the many pieces that we have constructed for the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in NYC. On many occasions when furniture that matches the decor of given area is not available from show rooms or factories, we are asked to fabricate pieces that fit- in with unique design theme. Many of furnishings that we have produced, incorporate construction techniques that are rarely used in modern furniture manufacturing.

Due to economic considerations our client could not have the moose head mounted so we accommodated him.

Custom carved corbels

This is a pair of large custom made architectural corbels. After our customer, who is a builder , exhausted every source trying to find a match to existing woodwork in a home, he came to us to have these carvings custom made. We hand carved these out of solid mahogany then finished them in white to match existing painted woodwork. Although not done frequently on this scale, we often have to reproduce carved accents on reproductions and antique restored pieces. This old-world style craftsmanship is almost non-existent today and is a great asset to our offerings as a custom woodworking and antique restoration shop.    Peter Schichtel
