For the houses we design or other special locations we can provide custom furniture designs. Above, you can see one of our custom hutches, based on a sketch by Rand.
To the left, Merry, Rand and Bitsy Soellner select a special chunk of wild wavy maple, looked on by master craftsman DavidTripp of The Table Co. for Rand Soellner Architect’s custom furniture, a conference table. This particular piece of wood was cut 40 years ago, is 4” thick, 18” wide and over 10’ long. Rand and Merry have planned this piece as the front side of their conference table, which when finished, will probably end up around 3-3/4” thick, for a high-quality massive effect, not often seen in custom furniture making. The table will be about 9’ x 5’, with special inlay details and a large center circle of quilted maple, symbolizing the mystery, magic and technology of design, with quilted maple cruciform bands centered on the circle, having spiritual connotations. Craftsman Tripp will finish the majority of the table with his special blend of non-staining stain, which brings out the three-dimensional quality of the selected highly figured wood whorls without concealing anything. David said: “This will be one of the nicest pieces of custom furniture I have ever made.” Merry and Rand associate with high quality furniture makers like David to fabricate the custom furniture they design for clients. Tired of looking for that special piece? Let us design it for you! To the left, mascot Bitsy Soellner gives her approval of the wavy maple stock.

And below you can see the actual finished table! The table is about 9-1/2′ long x about 5-6″ wide. This is a big one! Our craftsman ended up using a piece of old chesnut for the front solid edge. Mutiple inlays of quited maple decorate the surface along with walnut dowels, for a pegged timber frame look, with a radial array of the pegs around the center circle for a massive craftsmanlike flair. Pieces of the wild wavy maple above were used in book-matched pieces diagonally for the main body of the table. The front edge has a huge 3″ radius, exposing the fact that this area is solid, quality hardwood. The finish is a stain polyester, which is very durable and conceals marring. Can we create some custom furniture for you?
Don’t you deserve some quality custom furniture, wrapped around you, exactly the way you have always wanted?

MERRY SELECTS UNIQUE MOUNTAIN-STYLE FURNITURE WITH DISTINCTION by

Here is one example of a special Mansion Bed with illuminated mantel. This work of custom furniture art is made of birch solids, birch and cherry veneers, burl and walnut inlays. The lights in the underside of the mantel not only offer function lighting for bedtime reading, they also add rich mood lighting to your bedroom suite. We can have your wall switch activate these lights in your Rand Soellner Architect mountain home. Home architects can help you find furniture like this.
Here is an Arched-back Lodge bed of Merry’s choosing that possesses a mountain flair with class. The wormy cherry finish has a rich luster that evokes feelings of warm quilts on a Winter’s night and firelight flickering off the wood ceiling in a Rand Soellner Architect lodge-style home.
This semi- custom furniture is one of Merry’s favorites: a Canopy-Frame Arched-Back Mansion Bed with cerejeira veneers, all hardwood solids, rosette accents, crown molding and round tapered posts.
