Custom

Every piece at YARD is handmade to order. This allows us to sustainably handmake furniture, and create a unique piece every time. 
We’re able to tailor dimensions, tabletop thickness, leg styles, door and drawer configurations to our core range. This allows you to own your perfect piece, design for longevity and break away from the fast furniture trend. 

We also specialise in custom projects and are frequently commissioned to custom make special pieces. Here’s a selection of our project highlights. 

How do I order a custom piece? 

The journey begins with a conversation with our designers. Here, we build an understanding of your needs and begin the creative collaboration.
Thoughts are gathered, put to paper and with customer confirmation the order kicks off.
From here, the magic begins! In the workshop, your ideas and drawings are handcrafted into beautiful pieces of furniture. 

Custom DJ Console

If you’re wondering what vinyl and recycled timber have in common, here’s your answer.

We custom built a minimalist turntable/dj console unit in a collaboration with our client who wanted something outside the box.

The grill face was designed to break up the bulkiness and to allow sound to travel through the face of the unit.

The unit also features open storage at the back of the unit to house records, audio equipment and speakers.

This piece was made from a recycled Messmate.

Southern Mahogany Wall Unit

Custom Wall Unit

This wall unit was custom designed and made to transform a formal lounge room in an innercity Californian bungalow home. Its owners wanted storage for large book and media collections, whilst creating a cosy space to transform the space into a cosy, relaxing space.

Made from recycled Southern Mahogany, the wall unit features adjustable shelves so it’s owners can create new display options as the shelves contents change. Ample storage underneath with a combination of door and drawer configurations provides a streamlined appearance and allows additional storage.

Kitchen Hutch & Cabinet

A custom made kitchen hutch featuring a mix of open shelving, draws and cupboard space to both display items and store the essentials.

The matching wall mounted cabinet was designed to store dining ware and pantry items.
