Testimonials

Read what our clients say about our custom conference tables.

Our office burned down in the Gatlinburg fire of 2016. I contacted Paul Downs Furniture because we wanted to add a statement to our new office that was just recently built back. What they were able to come up with is nothing short of amazing! The product itself is top notch, and they also help you understand each step in the process, along with rendered drawings, etc. I highly recommend them for any custom furniture needs. Highly professional and the finished product is exactly what they say it will be. Everyone on our staff loves the table!

The company I work for, TMS Architects, worked with Paul Downs to create custom dining tables for the Greathorse Country Club in Hampden, MA. The client was looking to have several very large round ‘farm/family’ style tables for dining. It was difficult to find options that offered both the style, and size needed. Paul Downs was able to offer not only the size but also a custom pedestal, as well as a custom wood inlay design using silhouettes of the client’s horses, and club logo. We were very happy with the final product, delivery, and assembly instructions.

We worked with many different vendors during the design, construction, and furnishing our of new 140,000 SF headquarters in Allen, TX, and I dare say that no other vendor performed better in this project than Paul Downs Cabinetmakers. You worked patiently with me to understand our objectives, provided excellent designs and the wood choices perfectly matched the room paneling. Additionally, Paul Downs Cabinetmakers delivered both tables on time, the installation was completely hassle-free, and the tables themselves are simply fantastic. The 9 foot wide War Room table is particularly impressive and has evoke hundreds of compliments already. I could not be happier with these two tables and the service we were provided.

I just got back from being out of town and the first thing I did was go straight to the conference room. The table looks awesome! You and your staff did a fantastic job. I have heard nothing but positive comments. Thanks again!

I wanted a custom Board Room table that would really impress, and Paul Downs did not disappoint. The quality and beauty of the table is amazing! A true work of art. The installation was flawless, and their customer service is excellent. After the table was installed, I had a few questions about the table, and its care. Every person I spoke with was very kind, professional, and willing to help in anyway. I would highly recommend Paul Downs Cabinetmakers for high quality furniture custom built just the way you want it.

Paul Downs Cabinetmakers were recommended to build a conference room table for our firm. The table needed to fit into our new conference room. Every step in the process was mapped out and double checked by Paul Downs so the end product not only fit but was a magnificent object of beauty. Their craftsmanship exceeded our expectations and we are delighted to show our clients the end product.

We had a beautiful 14-foot custom table made for our largest conference room a year ago. The finish is still as beautiful as the day we got it! We love the brushed aluminum inlay! We consistently receive compliments on the table. Thank you everyone at Paul Downs!

The Paul Downs team did a fantastic job of turning my idea into reality. I’d been looking for the “right” conference table for 3 years when I found Paul Downs Cabinetmakers on the internet. After a brief conversation and a design consultation, they provided renderings for approval and then produced a beautiful conference table and credenza. Their work is first rate. I recommend them without reservation.

I enthusiastically recommend Paul Downs to anyone looking for an exceptional piece of craftsmanship for their office or boardroom. Paul Downs created a beautiful conference table and credenza for our new conference space, and we couldn’t be happier. Throughout the entire process, their team was polite, responsive and eager to help us create our vision of a stunning conference room. We are thrilled with the final product and cannot wait to show off our new boardroom!

Working with Paul Downs, specifically Don Wuest, has been a wonderful and inspiring experience. The workmanship of the product is of utmost quality but the service and professionalism take the product so much further. Every step of the way was treated as just as important as the last step. I felt very comfortable and confident with each staff member I came into contact with. I would definitely work with and specify Paul Downs again, hopefully in the near future. Thanks again…

We were challenged by our client to create a very unique aesthetic on a relatively tight budget in a corporate boardroom. The Paul Downs team was able to quickly understand the project constraints and deliver a beautiful and well-designed piece of furniture. Our client is delighted and the aesthetic is perfect for the room.

The team at Paul Downs provided excellent service and a gorgeous finished product for the new board of education table for our school district. Not only is the table gorgeous, but fully functions to meet our needs. I highly recommend this team. They listened as we described our needs, and from those dialogues they were able to propose solutions to best address those needs. There isn’t anything we would change about the table!

Paul Downs worked with our company to meet our needs for the price range we were given. It was a great experience. They made sure everything was triple checked before production and shared the process along the way. I can’t recommend them enough.

After struggling with other vendors on a design for our new executive boardroom, I contacted Paul Downs Cabinetmakers. It was an incredible experience from the start. I began working with Nate Rossman and he immediately knew what I wanted and the vision I had for the room. After two conversations, he had a design in my hands that was spot on. I couldn’t believe it. Nate also played a major part in helping with the AV connection with the table. Once the design was complete, Nate handed the build over to the project manager, Andy Cole, who did a great job from start to finish keeping me in the loop on the build process. The install was professional and clean. Words can’t express how great the room came out. Everyone here is ecstatic. The first words out of their mouths when they see the room is “Wow”! I highly recommend Paul Downs Cabinetmakers!

We contacted Paul Downs Cabinetmakers to design a large conference table for a special client with very critical requirements, including extremely high technology performance and a high-level security installation, but within a tight timeframe and budget. The experienced craftsmen at Paul Downs knew what needed to be coordinated with the client and with the design team, and the attention to detail and craftsmanship was beyond exceptional! With full confidence, I look forward to contacting them again in the future.

Prior to the table being installed, this particular conference room was the last room our customers wanted to use for their meetings. The old table wasn’t functional and the look and feel of the room didn’t seem to facilitate conversations. Once the new table was installed, this meeting room turned into our most requested space. Instead of finding alternative venues, customers are contacting us earlier in their planning phases to make sure they are able to secure the meeting room for their event. Thanks for turning our “dull” space into our most requested meeting room. We look forward to future business with you.

I have had the pleasure of working with Paul Downs Cabinetmakers on two occasions over the past 6 months. Choosing a company that builds structures based upon Web site photos and phone contact is a bit risky, especially when the item is a large wooden conference table costing over $20K and the need to ascertain quality workmanship and ease of conducting business is key. As in most cases, on our first encounter, we were under the gun to make a decision in order to meet our time line so after a few back and forth phone calls, exchange of drawings, and sample wood types, we took a leap of faith and banked on Paul Downs.
We were not disappointed in our decision. In fact, the entire transaction more than met our expectations. The table (24 ft long) was exquisite! The quality was superb, the delivery was on time, the assembly was quick and painless, and the interactions with Paul Downs were perfect. Although it’s difficult to believe, doing business with Paul Downs Cabinetmakers was flawless and his product is of the utmost highest quality. When I was asked to source another conference table a few months later, I did not even consider other vendors. I contacted Paul Downs and ordered a second table. The table arrived yesterday, right on schedule. It is – you guessed it, exquisite!

It is very easy for me to offer a positive testimonial for Paul Downs. If you want the highest quality with the least amount of hassle doing business with a consummate professional, Paul Downs is your cabinetmaker!

Working with Paul Downs has been a great experience! Our project required a conference table that seats 35 people. None of our furniture vendors were able to accommodate our needs as it related to the conference room table. The time limit on our project was looming and we were getting discouraged. So out of frustration we Googled “large conference tables” and found Paul Downs. What an amazing find! We talked, visited his workshop (he had preliminary designs ready upon our arrival based on our conversation), we exchanged ideas and like magic, less than two months later, we have a conference room table that simply takes your breath away. The work product is amazing! The craftsmanship and creativity is unbelievable. We could not be more pleased.

Everyone who sees the new flame cherry conference room table is in awe of its beautify and function. The first compliment came from the office furniture company that installed the table – they couldn’t believe how thoughtfully designed and easy it was to put together. And the custom hatches with built-in power, USB, cat 5 ethernet, S-video, VGA, and HDMI allow us to easily connect our technology without running cables all over. At first, faculty, staff, and students were afraid to sit at the table because it is so beautiful and they were worried about spills. I told them I purposely spilled red wine on the wood sample and let it sit for over an hour with absolutely no staining, so now everyone asks to use this room first over others that may be available. The best part of the renovation project was that I was able to order an incredibly beautiful handmade table with all the features I required that was actually made in the United States at a price that was comparable to imported assembly line tables. It is clear to me that Paul Downs Cabinetmakers truly believes in the tradition of creating custom-tailored heirloom furniture that will last for generations, and I’m proud to say I have one.

As you know the table and chairs were delivered and installed on Wednesday. The gentleman from Quality Installations lived up to their company name; QUALITY! They did an outstanding job and were very, impressed, as we were with the quality of the engineering and manufacturing of the table. Yesterday the lead integrator was snaking wire under the table. He stated that in all his years he has never seen a better-built table. Thank you for all your help in getting us a quality product that we are proud of.
