(pronounced - Furniture by Design)

Bayley Wharton, Furniture Designer & Maker        established 1996


    Established in 1996, Furniture by Design is a small, North Carolina based company specializing in designing and building fine, handmade, hardwood furniture.  All our designs are original, unique, intriguing, functional and hand crafted from solid wood.  While elegant, exquisitely detailed, and superbly finished, each piece is designed, engineered, and crafted to withstand daily use for generations to come.

    Clean, simple, classic lines coupled with the warmth and beauty of naturally finished hardwoods allow our furniture to fit comfortably into any home regardless of styling or interior decor.  Our woods of choice, Curly Maple, Cherry, Bubinga, Walnut, Ebony, Wenge and Bloodwood are among the most prized and premium hardwoods available today.  Each species offers a distinct grain pattern and rich color allowing us to compose wonderful patterns without the use of artificial stains.  It’s part of our motto “Let the wood speak for itself.”  

    Because the richness, depth, and detail of rare, exotic, highly figured woods are so much more intriguing and intense in real life, we are certain you’ll be more impressed when you receive a piece of our furniture than you are with what you see on our web site.  Give us a call to begin your collection today.  You’ll be glad you did.  Look forward to hearing from you.
