How Much Does Custom Furniture Cost?

The average cost in the US to commission a piece of custom furniture is $2,600*. But that average price can be deceiving as costs range $200 to $12,000. The largest factors determining price are wood species, design, size, build quality and warranty.

Wood Species Rank In Cost

↳ Alder (Most Affordable)
↳ Cherry (More Affordable)
↳ Maple (More Affordable)
↳ Red Oak (More Affordable)
↳ Hickory (More Expensive)
↳ White Oak (More Expensive)
↳ Walnut (Most Expensive)

Obviously, the larger a piece is the more material and labor goes into its creation. More intricate designs and higher quality of craftsmanship affect labor cost. And if the company or craftsmen provide a warranty then you can expect the price to go up for that as well.

Real Examples of Custom Furniture Prices:

This Denton Bed crafted by Unruh costs $1,899 in Alder. If you upgraded to Hickory it would cost $2,648, and if you had it custom made in walnut it would cost $2,998.

This Colby Table designed and made by Unruh starts at $1,698 in Alder and at 60” long. If you want it made 96” long the price would go up to $1,898.

This Farmhouse Coffee Table by Unruh is priced at $799 in Alder.

While Custom Furniture has the potential to cost more than something from a box store, if your furniture is built with a high level of craftsmanship, and if the materials used are solid hardwoods, that piece can live inside your family for generations to come.

I started Unruh Furniture in my garage in 2012 when my wife was pregnant with our first. Today I have 4 kids, 20 employees, and plenty of fires to put out every day. It's a great life and I am a happy man.
