Custom Furniture Orders

Custom orders are what we do at Things of Metal and Wood. Using locally sourced materials we can create a piece that is unique for you. All pieces are lovingly crafted in our Maroochydore workshop which adjoins a Showroom you may otherwise expect to find in the streets of Melbourne. The production time can vary depending on the materials selected for your piece, unless otherwise discussed we have a lead time of 3-6 weeks.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us, book in a Design Consultation with Paolo, or complete our Custom Furniture Design enquiry form below.

We would love to talk design with you.
