Here are some detailed shop drawings of a pair of custom dressers for a commercial space in New York City near 59th street and Lexington. The price range for a custom dresser of this size depending on materials, finishes and hardware, is between $2,200 and $3,600.The difference between buying a custom furniture piece like this instead of something you could find at a furniture store is the guarantee of premium quality, flexibility on the final size, finish and color. Purchasing a pair of custom dressers like these will fit the space perfectly and also have an excellent resale value. Often durability and resale are not considered when purchasing furniture but are two of the principal components separating high end furniture from poor quality/ machine made furniture.
These are the initial shop drawings for an art deco dining table we created for a client in Tribeca. We ended up going through several revisions before arriving at a final design. It’s helpful to get approval with a client utilizing the shop drawings as a clear indicator of what the furniture will look like.
