Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Reviews

"We wanted a new mirror/coat rack for our entryway.
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
discussed the primary functionality of the piece with us (how big did we want it, did we want a mirror, how many coat "hooks", etc)...and then presented us with a few different options (drawings) to choose from (a very consultative process). He knows we're huge Cubs fans (living near
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
) and we normally sit in right field...so he transformed a coat rack into a custom/functional piece of artwork that truly represents the personality of our home.
We love his work and you will be thrilled with it too.
Also, as a further testament to the qualify of his work...he was the featured local artist on an episode of HGTV's "

"Amazing. The worst part was having the patience to wait for furniture that is hand built to our exact specifications instead of off the shelf. So worth it. They look amazing and do the job they were designed to do: house our huge collection of SF. We have siince moved the entire set to a different apartment and they continue to give us pleasure every time we look at them.
A plus for service, value, satisfaction.
Another plus: solid pine cases weigh far less than particle board and veneer of the same size. Moving them was not as hard as it might have been.
I just called for an estimate on another

"My experience with
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
, the owner of Furniture N Design Group (formerly Ambiance Gallery), went badly from the second time I met with her. I thought the initial bad experience was just a small one-time situation. But everything went from bad to worse. This has cost me thousands of dollars. If you meet this woman, walk the other way. She will deceive you and provide poor quality merchandise. I was too trusting. I handed off my Baker dining room chairs to her for reupholstering to be returned within a specific time frame. The upholsterer she used was terrible (more about him later). Three of the chairs had to go back and with one of the chairs having a broken leg. One was not returned to me on time, even though she said she would bring it right back. I was then forced to borrow folding chairs for our holiday meal. All three chairs were fixed but the repaired broken leg looks awful. It was glued poorly -- I could have glued it better than the repairer did. She said it looks fine, and further stated that it doesn’t bother her. She didn’t care if it bothers me that my expensive chair was broken and poorly repaired. I ordered a chair and ottoman from her. I actually gave her a picture of what I wanted – a small swivel chair for our bedroom. The picture was from a manufacturer she does not handle but she assured me that it would be exactly as shown with the same dimensions as the piece I wanted. It arrived in awful condition.

’s “white glove service” seems to not include pressing fabric. The skirt of the chair and ottoman were a mess, no care had been taken to press them. The upholstery has
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
on it where the upholsterer indicated sewing lines (they had not been removed).
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
said, “it looks fine, it doesn’t bother me”. She made no attempt to rectify the matter. It also is not a swivel chair but a 4 leg static chair. In fact, it is too large to have a swivel. It is 10” deeper than the one I wanted (my feet
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
’t even come close to touching the ground when I sit in it) and 8” wider. Plus, it doesn’t look like the chair in the picture that I presented to her. She stated that it is a custom piece and can’t be returned … even though it is not the piece I ordered. She did give me a small refund. The chair and ottoman cost me $2,425.00 and I
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
’t like the chair AT ALL. We live in a small condo and the chair is over-sized and over-stuffed. The only good thing about it is the fabric, which
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
did not select. I also ordered a sleeper sofa for our very small second bedroom. Anyone looking at this condo would know that a small piece of furniture is what it needs. My #1 criteria was that the sleeper be extremely comfortable for our guests. The sleeper
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
delivered has a very thin coil mattress that is anything but comfortable (the coils are prominent). It is so bad that we bought an Aerobed that we are now using in that room for our guests rather than have them suffer on that bed.
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
’s response was, “buy one of those very plush mattress covers for it”. Later she said, “you can buy a new mattress for it”. You can picture what the sleeper looks like. It would fit beautifully in a huge family room. It’s overstuffed with large cushions. When confronted with the size of the piece
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
took the two seat cushions to her upholsterer and had them reduced in size. They came back misshapen. But she thinks they look fine. I paid $2,750.00 for this sleeper and we can’t even sleep on it. There is a piece that looked very nice, when it arrived. It is a 2 cushion, 6 leg sofa in our living room. We have spent time in the condo for about 70 days since the sofa was delivered and the cushions are already beginning to look bad – even though I try to fluff them and make them look good. The middle legs on the sofa do not touch the floor. They are ½” shorter than the legs on the ends of the sofa. This is on a $2,472.00 sofa! It is my opinion that the furniture manufacturer used for these pieces produces goods that are low in quality. Even the queen bed we ordered from her has bare wooden boards used as supports in the center rather than a finished framing. The bottom line is that
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
doesn’t listen. If you tell her something she will sweetly agree to acquire the pieces you want. She then does as she pleases (or, I believe, orders what she can get that will pay her the most). Her attempts at “white glove service” are pitiful. And her follow up is more of a cover up and a blame game. I
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
’t believe she is a designer, she doesn’t know what she is doing. She will even blame you! Her solution to my problems? She gave me the name of a resale shop and told me I could send my things there for resale if I
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
’t like them. I had already been in touch with this shop at the time she gave me the name, she provided no new information. My expensive furniture will be sold for less than half of what I paid for it and I will then receive 60% of the proceeds – IF the furniture sells. That is quite a solution. She simply wiped her hands of it. Please do yourself a favor and look for someone that you can trust and will deliver on what they tell you they are going to do -

is not that person. We terminated communication on 10/30/2011.

" Projects:

The rolling table, while different from most of the furniture
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
features at his website, is a stunning success. I had designed the table based on client specifications for a Chinese-style black lacquer table that could roll over the ottoman to be used as a table or even as extra seating.
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
gave us wheel (
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
) options to choose from and we were thrilled with the final selection's ease of function and look. The table itself is so beautiful and his "stainmaster" (as I refer to his wood refinisher) is expert: he was able to give my client the 1/8" line trim around the surface
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
that she wanted to finish off the look. She continues to be delighted with the way it looks, and it turned out exactly as we had been envisioning. His "stainmaster" collaborator is another reason we decided to go with
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
since matching stain colors was very important to my client.

For the built-in,
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
fixed issues that remained from the previous contractor and greatly improved on the existing. His on-the-spot drawings are excellent and very helpful along with the on-site discussions with me and my client. The built-in project was completed just a couple days over the estimated time frame--just a couple days is in itself amazing for custom contracting projects!--but even that 1-2 day overage was only due to the Snowstorm of the Century (Feb. 2-5, 2011)! What a week! So this of course was perfectly fine and my client was absolutely thrilled with the final product including the hand-turned finials he created. They were more elaborate than we had discussed and sketched in our meeting but they turned out so beautifully and my client loved them. The real star element (in addition to the finials) is the "waterfall" effect of the wood used for the counter top. Even the "shoe" he added around the bottom
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
is exquisite, perfectly fit along a curve and just finishes off the whole piece beautifully.

The fireplace surround replacement of appliqués turned out nicely as well and fits what my client dreamed of. He provided three books of appliqués for her to choose from and she is very pleased with how it looks. His pricing was the highest of the multiple bids we received for this job but my client chose him primarily because of his top quality workmanship. He brought along an assistant contractor for de-installation and one for installation. Both were great to work with, and I was appreciative of the respect they showed toward my client, their care as they worked in her home and with clean up, and their attention to the building's rules. The installation process was one long day but it went smoothly and as planned.

Working with
Chicago Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
was hands-down one of the very best contractor experiences I or my client have had--if not *the* best! This company and proprietor are A+! Thanks to Angie's List and big thanks to

"I love this company. They are my favorite guys to work with. They have done multiple things for me, and I have recommended them to a lot of people. They are wonderful, have fantastic work, and worked to my budget. They have good ideas too. For example, the installed crown molding around anair-conditioning vent and still made it look good."

is extremely responsive by phone, text and email. He always showed up when he said he would and left the home clean when he finished for the day. I was amazed at how quickly he took the project from brainstorming designs to finished product, and the quality is excellent. We are so pleased we have asked him to look at our laundry room to design and execute a remodel. We also are in the early stages of planning a construction job and would not hesitate to use him on that as well."

addressed all of our concerns, and worked with us at every step. We also had
