Custom Furniture Made with Solid Wood, Metal and Fabric

Work with SENTIENT on a custom furniture project.

Luxury Custom Furniture for Hospitality, Residential and Commercial Projects

SENTIENT is the birthplace of superior custom furniture that has the innate capacity to transform any space. Whether you aim to refurbish your company’s conference room, or you are looking for high-end furniture for a distinct living room, each custom piece of SENTIENT furniture surpasses the expectations of design possibilities. Not only that, but every piece of custom furniture that leaves our workshop and design studio in Brooklyn, New York, is designed, engineered, and built in the U.S.

Whether it’s our custom solid wood furniture, upholstered pieces produced with exclusive, in-house fabrics and leathers or custom pieces with a metal base and custom finish, SENTIENT furniture is the perfect amalgam of aesthetic appeal and functionality. From carefully selecting every piece of natural wood and fabric and leather we use to ensuring every calculation is accurate to the micrometer when engineering custom metal fittings, the utmost care is taken in each step of the design and construction processes. Because SENTIENT was founded on the idea of designing and creating with our clients’ visions in mind, the customer becomes a partner in the creation of each exclusive piece of furniture.

Custom Wood Furniture

Every furniture design process starts with an idea and, within about six to eight weeks, what was merely a concept will be transformed into an exquisite piece of high-end furniture. When our clients come to us with the desire to create a custom piece of furniture, we first spend time understanding their precise needs. After the conceptualization process, initial sketches are completed to get the ball moving. We then create customized 3D computer renderings to give a sense of the finished piece. After the design details are settled, we turn it over to the workshop to begin production. Through providing our clients with updated renderings of each custom piece, we involve them every step of the way, from concept to finished product.

Custom Made Wood Furniture

High-end, Custom Solid Wood Furniture

Natural wood has an intrinsic beauty. Our philosophy is to retain the organic beauty of the wood slabs we use. Following Michaelangelo’s philosophy that the sculpture is hidden inside the marble, we reveal the distinct creation inherent to each of our wood slabs.

One of our most sought-after design options is custom live edge design—a method and philosophy that maintains the natural edge of a piece of wood. Rather than tampering with the essential shape of the wood, we create custom live edge furniture that celebrates the beauty in the slab. The exquisite textures in the wood grain are revealed rather than concealed, and the distinguishing edge of the specific piece of wood is maintained.

Hardwood Species & Options for Custom Pieces

We offer a wide range of locally sourced natural wood options that each offer their unique style and texture. Working with family-owned lumber mills in Pennsylvania, we ensure that each of the wood slabs used to create our custom solid wood furniture is ethically sourced and locally grown. From the decadence of American Black Walnut and the clean simplicity of oak to the exquisite boughs of maple and walnut, every piece of hardwood that passes through our Brooklyn workshop reflects the quality that has become synonymous with our custom furniture. For a variety of styles, we offer ebonized and bleached oak, as well as distressed maple. Whether you are looking to create a simple side table or more elaborate conference tables to adorn your office spaces, we will work with you to ensure that your custom solid wood furniture is ideal for space it will inhabit.

Custom Made Upholstered Furniture

With an exquisite selection of luxurious fabrics and superior leather, our in-house upholstery shop will provide the perfect finishing for your custom upholstered piece.

Work with Our In-house Fabric and Leather Specialists

SENTIENT’s in-house upholstery shop in Brooklyn specializes in fabrics and leathers. We carry stock fabrics and leathers to suit a variety of tastes and needs, including both residential and commercial spaces. Whether you’re looking for an upholstered sofa for your living room, custom leather chairs for your dining room or even a soft, fabric-covered headboard for your master suite, we’ll help you determine the right material for your custom pieces. We’ll even assist with selecting the appropriate fabric or leather for custom banquettes that will grace your restaurant’s lobby or your hotel’s foyer. In addition, we work COM if you would prefer to outsource the fabric or leather for your furniture. If you need assistance, we have relationships with several fine fabric and leather providers. We can also offer options in foam densities, pocket springs, hand-tied construction, and other upholstery methods.

Options for Upholstered Furniture

With various high-end leather, wool felt, and fabric options available in a variety of shades, you can be assured of both artistic appeal and longevity of use.

Custom Furniture with Metal, Stone & Glass

Custom Metal Furniture

The excellence of our custom furniture design goes beyond our woodwork. Through the expert use of stone, metal, and glass, we ensure that every custom piece of furniture built in our Brooklyn workshop is finished with the same artistry and attention-to-detail we are known for.
