The Process

Three Elements Studios is a custom furniture studio. We work with individual and corporate clients to create unique and lasting pieces that meet your functional, aesthetic and budgetary needs. The work you see on our website may be purchased directly or can be used as inspiration for creating something new. If you are considering the commission process please don't hesitate to call.

The design process involves a discussion of the scope of the project, the materials and the budget. Once we come to agreement on the scope and budget we can begin the design work. At this point we collect 10% of the estimated total cost as a design fee. This fee covers the time spent developing the designs . Once we have refined designs we will discuss the final proposal and an estimated delivery date.

When the final design and budget are approved, 50% of the remaining cost is due in order to begin work. At the agreed upon time, materials are ordered and construction begins. The final balance is collected when the piece is completed and either picked up or delivered. Any applicable sales tax will be applied at that time.

About the Materials We Use

At Three Elements Studios we hand select the wood specific for each project. This takes more time but it is essential for creating beautiful pieces that will last generations. Whenever possible, we chose wood from FSC-certified forests or from other sustainably harvested sources. Although we work with a variety of finishes according to the project, we make every effort to use non-toxic or low-toxicity finishes whenever possible.
