The Custom Furniture Business: Creating Beautiful and Timeless Designs
Small businesses are the soul of America

More people are interested in buying locally made products than ever before. You can capitalize on many consumers’ return to local shopping by emphasizing that all components of your furniture are made in the United States, or in your town or area.

Given this climate, it is a good time to start a handmade furniture business.

Airy contemporary with epic indoor-outdoor living asks $2.8M

Just one block from the ocean in La Jolla, California

Memorial Day has us dreaming of summer cookouts and lazy afternoons, so it’s fitting that today’s stand-out listing showcases indoor-outdoor living. Located just one block from the ocean in La Jolla, California, this three-bedroom, three-bathroom was built in 2014 to take advantage of the region’s sunny climate.

Designed by the San Diego-based architecture firm Architects Magnus, the home features pure white walls, expansive windows, and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that allow access to the outdoors. The main building includes two bedrooms while a multi-functional detached unit houses the third.

The back unit was converted into a studio media room with sound insulated walls and a hydraulic aircraft hanger door. On top of the mother-in-law is a floating staircase that leads to a rooftop deck with ocean views. Other perks include an open-concept kitchen and dining area with a light blue Smeg refrigerator, Bertazzoni oven, and Bosch dishwasher.

Love what you see? 5681 Dolphin Place is on the market now for $2,750,000.
