Who we are

From our first day of business in 1977, we’ve placed quality artistry and service ahead of everything else in our drive to do things a little differently and a little better. Our work is commissioned and designed to be as individual as the owner and the home in which it will reside. Naturally, you’ll find there are no limits in materials, technique, scale or style.

What we do

Our workshop incorporates the finest traditions of handcraftsmanship with a number of advanced woodworking technologies. It’s this unique integration of technology and tradition, combined with a relentless attention to detail, that means you get superb fit and finish in made-to-order wood furniture and millwork.

Why choose us?

We work closely with prominent architects and interior designers throughout the country to infuse dynamic experiences in the custom homes and offices they design. Starting with a collaborative meeting to define the style and functional requirements, we then develop a unique design theme—color, materials, finishes all come together in a highly personal way to create a beautiful, customized environment.

Specialized approach start to finish

Our philosophy is both old school and simple—one man, one job. It’s our way of achieving pride in workmanship and superior results that are so often lacking elsewhere today. Where warranted, each craftsman is supported by a team of equally qualified specialists.

We offer dozens of wood options, both domestic and exotic species, such as Wenge, Zebrawood and Macassar Ebony. To promote sustainability, many of these are certified as harvested in accordance with the rules of the Forest Stewardship Council. The finishes we use are formulated exclusively with ICA products from Italy. Your choices are endless, from stains, painted and faux surfaces, plus gold and silver leaf, to high-gloss polyurethane, baked urethane or an old-world French polish.

We’ve partnered with top architects and designers to install at locations nationwide. In order to guarantee your complete satisfaction, our installation crews place as much emphasis on wrapping, loading and transporting our work as we do in designing and building it.

Our Team

  • Greg’s interest in woodworking began in a modern Yamasaki designed middle school woodshop. There, Greg gained an appreciation and understanding of the beautiful shapes and forms that can be hidden within a natural piece of wood. Greg founded Vogue Furniture in 1977 and over the past 40 + years, he has retained that initial passion, consistently exploring the extraordinary opportunities that can exist in a blank space. He leads with a “no limits” attitude, focusing on continuous improvement with the end goal of always exceeding our client’s expectations in design, quality and service. Come weekends, you’ll catch Greg running, skiing, sailing, spending time with family and maybe even doing karaoke with a martini in hand…
