On October 1, Small Town Sandwich Shop will be opening less than a mile from our workshop... and we built their furniture! Nine tables, thirteen benches, and two crates; driftwood-stained tops and custom lime bases to match the walls. We can't wait for them to open!
To showcase all the businesses we've worked with, we created a new page featuring our commercial work. Check it out!
Two weeks ago, my nephew approached Vander Ark Furniture with several unique design ideas. We thought they had potential, so we let him in the shop. This was the result:
Thanks to Jacob's design and construction skills, we are now able to offer an alternative form of seating to our Farmhouse Bench. The Stumps and Stools are solid, eye-catching, and green (we can use scrap lumber for the gorgeous pieced-tops), and the initial reactions have been overwhelming! At $130 for Stumps and $140 for Stools, they will make great, affordable companions to your Farmhouse Table.
With college classes only days away, Mariah realized she needed a desk. Instead of altering one of our Farmhouse Tables, she decided to come up with a completely original design, then she built it herself from beginning to end.
I posted a picture of the results, and we immediately sold two desks in the same day! Thanks to her innovation, we now offer a Practical Desk for $380, and a Practical Standing Desk for $420.
It's a big week at Vander Ark Furniture! We're starting to build the pieces that were purchased during our Small Business Saturday sale, and we just launched our new website that includes two new lines of home furniture!
Only four new pieces have been added so far, but we expect to add between one and two new pieces every week... so check back often. Would you like a coffee table, bookshelf, or bench in the style of our Pioneer Series? Let us know and we'll build it, add it to our site, and give you a significant discount!
Contact us for more information or to place your order!
Our newest furniture set consists of colorful boxes that form a bookshelf, nightstand, bed, and headboard. Both whimsical and sturdy, this series is sure to liven up any child's bedroom!
As always, every piece is customizable as no additional charge. Do you want different colors? More boxes? A taller headboard? Let us know and we'll make it happen!
Artist Twin Bed - $200
Artist Bookshelf - $180
Artist Nightstand - $90
Full Artist Set - $420 (Save $50!)
Thanks to the popularity of the Petestal, we have been working hard to add more pieces to our pet line!
The first is called The Pet Stand, a dog crate that doubles as a nightstand or end table:
The top is beautifully finished in your choice of stain and two coats of satin polyurethane. To remove the crate, simply pull the Pet Stand away from the wall and slide it out.
If you're sick of looking at an ugly cage that takes up your entire living room, you need this table! Only $160 with the crate, or we can build a custom Pet Stand around your own crate for $130!
Sick of spilling water on the floor? Our second new piece is a pair of raised dog bowls.
The simple and rustic design comes in small, medium, or large, and can be stained to match your Pet Stand or Petestal! $50 and the bowls are included.
Every piece is $30 cheaper when you paint and stain it yourself! If you need any tips or tricks, we're only a phone call away.
Getting married? Buy an unfinished Castle-style bench and have your wedding guests sign the top. It's a great way to preserve your memories in a beautiful and functional piece of furniture. Only $80!
Don't let them grow up too quickly!
As most parents know, there is an awkward stage when your child is too big for a crib but too small for a "big-kid" bed. Our toddler bed will ease the transition with a sleek, safe, base that fits a standard-size crib mattress.
Check out our color page to customize the paint and stain!
For dogs who want to be close
but aren't allowed on the furniture.
The Petestal is an original design made for small and medium-sized dogs. The top has an optional cushion that can be replaced with a standard-sized bed, the bottom serves as either a toy bin or an extra resting place, and two dog bowls conveniently hide away under the step! As with all of our furniture, the piece is completely customizable.
The Petestal comes in three sizes:
18"x12" for toy dogs.
23"x16" for small dogs (pictured).
29x18" for medium dogs.
All sizes are only $120, and includes a Snoozzy-brand pet cushion!
