Custom furniture is just that: the dimensions, shape, materials, details, and finish are all custom-designed to meet your unique sense of style and physical requirements. It also means that we will work with you to make sure the piece you get is exactly the piece you want.

But not all custom rustic and western furniture is the same. At Norseman Designs West we specialize in building rustic and western furniture that offers beauty, utility, and lasting value. Each piece is hand-built using the finest of woods, old world craftsmanship, and hand-rubbed finishing that reveals the natural beauty of the wood. No cut corners, shortcuts, or unfinished surfaces. We're small enough to pay attention to the small details, large enough to handle large commercial orders. The result is a one-of-a-kind work of art that reflects your unique sense of western style as well as the skill of the artist.
