This new custom designed hutch by Henhouse is so adorable. It’s our new favorite design because it is so versatile. It would be perfect for a bathroom housing bath linens, toiletries, etc. Great for a small condo for dishes and glass ware, or for an office housing books and mementos. We decided to paint the exterior in a crisp soft white and the interior is painted a delicious shade a blue called “Raindance” from Benjamin Moore. On our floor now.

At henhouse we specialize in custom furniture, which means we can build you practically anything! That being said, deciding on a custom piece of furniture can be SUCH AN OVERWHELMING TASK!! It is quite a challenge to imagine what you want your piece of furniture to look like, deciding on the features and function of your piece, the dimensions, the hardware…

For this purpose, we have created two standard furniture lines, the South Shore and Oxford collection. You can order directly from the catalog or use the designs and dimensions as a jumping off point for creating the ultimate custom piece of furniture. While we have provided set dimensions and features in these catalogs, they are not set in stone and we can accommodate any space or specifications. In other words, think of our designs as a blank colouring sheet that you get to fill it in.

We would like to show you what our process looks like: The first step is to select your piece of furniture. One particular customer chose the South Shore Sleigh bed (SSSB) with a low footboard and made out of solid pine. They then selected the colour and style of finish, a green hue with a heavy handed antiqued look (we also have samples in our store that you can choose from). Presto! After a few weeks of building and finishing, the end result is a one of a kind, unique and long lasting piece of furniture finished to blend in perfectly with the rest of your decor. How neat is that?!

Selecting chairs for a table can be quite a daunting task, and an expensive one at that. Perhaps an obvious choice is to select chairs in the same finish and style as your table. However, we see chairs as an opportunity to break some design boundaries and shake things up a bit. Mixed woods and stains? Why not?! Upholstery? Great idea! The most important thing is to make sure that, like all pieces of furniture, the chair is built to last and made with quality materials.

This is why we believe Jamco to be a good fit with our own hand built dining tables. A Canadian company based out of Mississauga ON, all of their chairs are made out of solid beech frames and use mortise and tenon joinery. Besides making beautiful chairs for home use, Jamco also outfits many restaurants with chairs and tables, demonstrating their product’s longevity and endurance. Visit Jamco online or stop by our store and peruse through their expansive catalogue where you can view different styles, types of finishes and seat options.
