Luxury Custom Furniture for Hospitality, Residential and Commercial Projects
SENTIENT is the birthplace of high-end custom furniture that has the innate capacity to transform any commercial or residential 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 US.
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 model, helping us develop exceptional one-of-a-kind pieces.
Custom Wood Furniture
Every furniture design process starts with an idea and, within about six to eight weeks, what was merely a concept gets transformed into an exquisite piece of high-end custom furniture. When our clients come to us with ideas to create a bespoke design, we first spend time understanding their precise need and creative vision. 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, taking great pride in the process. Through many years in business, we learned to cherish this creative collaboration, empowering our clients to explore sophisticated aesthetic heights and artistic achievements.
High-end, Custom Wood Furniture
Natural wood has an intrinsic beauty. Our philosophy is to retain the organic splendor of the slabs that we use, creating solid wood furniture that honors its innate characteristics. Following Michelangelo’s philosophy that the sculpture is hidden inside the marble, we reveal the distinct creation inherent to each of our wood slabs. This is how our solid wood dining table and all of our residential and commercial models become an artistic highlight of the spaces they inhabit.
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 as it is brought to the fore.
Hardwood Species & Options for custom pieces
We offer a wide range of locally sourced natural wood species that offer unique styles and textures. 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. Our furniture design relies on an endless variety of styles, and we offer a range of captivating treatment options such as ebonized and bleached oak, as well as distressed maple. Whether you are looking to create a simple side table or more elaborate powered conference tables to adorn your office space, we will work with you to ensure that your custom solid wood furniture is ideal for the environment it will inhabit.

We work with a range of materials, creating custom dimensions for captivating base profiles and framing options, or one-of-a-kind furniture items that are made partially or entirely of metal, stone and glass.
