Creative Art Furniture specializes in reclaiming old wood and antique artifacts from early New England homesteads and factories to create art furniture that is timeless, authentic, functional, unique and beautiful. We breathe new life into these materials while presenting the aged and worn surfaces so their history will live on for many future generations. Salvaging our past for future green generations. . .
I can't tell you how beautiful our table looks in our home and how many compliments we have received on it. Knowing that we picked out the wood and that it was made specifically for us makes it truly special.

I just read the article in the November/December 2006 Audubon magazine that highlighted your work. Thank you for taking the gentle approach to creating furniture and helping to save our environment. If I am in need of any "new" furniture, you are #1 on my list. Your furniture is awesome and loved the antiques section of your website. Thanks again for what you do!

I just wanted to drop you a note to say how THRILLED I am with my new countertops. They are absolutely gorgeous and even better than I was expecting. I love the color, the wood, and most especially the "touch" -- or if they were fabric, the "hand" or the feel of the surface. I couldn't be more thrilled and am so glad you were featured on This Old House or I never would have found you or thought to use reclaimed wood. Anyway ... it was a pleasure doing business with you and I thought you might enjoy hearing how pleased I am with your wood work.

Steve and Chris...we're so grateful to receive the Certificate of Authenticity.
I'm going to laminate it and tape it under the table.
The table is magnificent. We've been using it and absolutely loving it like a member of our family!
All good wishes,

Hi Christine and Steve!
Well, the delivery guys just left, and the table is gorgeous!!! It fits the space perfectly, with four chairs comfortably on each side. The contours of the boards are beautiful, and the patina is terrific. My family will be so happy to finally have a proper table for Thanksgiving! I'll try to take a couple of photos of the table in place, and send them to you. You can certainly put me down as one of your very satisfied customers, and feel free to use me as a reference.
Many, many thanks for all your work to make the perfect table for me. You guys are great to work with!
All the best,

Just received the wedding bowl. It is beautiful beyond what I could have hoped for. It will be difficult to give as a gift, but I believe that a gift should come from the heart. Let your husband know his work will be appreciated for years to come.

Dear Stephen and Christine
Just a note to tell you how pleased we are with our "new" chestnut farm table custom crafted by Stephen. We have just returned from our annual visit to Sanibel Island and are enjoying our new classic table. It fits perfectly with our chairs and surroundings and is just beautiful. The color of the finished table is just right and shows the artist's eye of its creator.
Stephen was also right about the finished table height. After living with it for a few days, I reduced the leg length by one inch to lower the table top. Its appearance and functionality are much improved.
Thank you again for your patience and help in working with us. You have created a beautifully designed and crafted heirloom that we will enjoy for many years and pass down within the family. The irreplaceable chestnut from which it was made will now live on for many more years in its new form.

Dear Steve and Chris
I just wanted to write you a quick e-mail and thank you for the kitchen table and benches. The table is far more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. . .I couldn't believe how perfect it was when I saw it. It looks gorgeous in ournew house. It is the first thing you notice when you walk in and everyone is commenting on how beautiful it is. I can't stop looking at it and running my hands over it. What an incredible piece of workmanship!
Thanks again for all your help with this. My husband and I and our children will cherish this for years to come.
Please let us know if you want to stop by and see it in its new home. . .
