ATR Customs specializes in utilizing various types of lumber, upcycled materials and locally sourced hardwoods to handcraft custom furniture that will last for years to come.
By far, most of the work we do is specifically commissioned by clients looking for something they could never find in stores. We encourage our clients to never be bashful in desiring exactly what they want. With our design solutions, we aim to seamlessly merge the concepts of art and function.
