We have received and setup our new table thanks to Paul Downs, and it is fantastic. Not only does the table look great, but the entire process was seamless. The staff was very communicative, kept us up to date on the process (with pictures!), and was very helpful with delivery. The table was able to be setup very quickly as well. It truly was a pleasure getting this table, from the start to the very end.
We just took delivery of our new conference room table for our Law Firm and are thrilled with the quality of the table and the process that brought us to this point. These folks believe in quality and deliver on that belief in a big way! Thank you!!
I am a former engineer at PDC. I left my position there due to personal reasons having nothing to do with the company. I can say with certainty that PDC has set the bar for all of my future employers with regard to the leadership and company culture. Paul is always present in the shop, and has created an environment where anyone in the organization can have their voice heard and contribute to the operation. Whether it's an engineer, builder, or the guy sweeping the floors, everyone's input is encouraged and given a fair hearing.It's tempting to turn this review into an essay on the virtues of PDC, but these can be summarized with the following: the moral compass directing PDC is pointed toward maximizing prosperity for all employees at every level of the organization. This makes the shop a fun, inclusive, and rewarding place to work. If you are looking for a job, PDC provides an exciting environment to strive for excellence. If you are looking for furniture, PDC provides unmatched quality and a truly custom product. I simply cannot speak highly enough of the company, the product, and the people who work there. My employment there is a time in my career that I look back on fondly and with great pride in what I was able to contribute.
Paul Downs is a great choice for any custom wood tables needed. They were very professional from the beginning and kept us well informed throughout the process until the end. We love our table and will highly recommend them to anyone looking for excellent service and product.
Paul Downs Cabinetmakers recently manufactured desks for our new Emergency Operations Center. The desks we received are outstanding! The craftsmanship is impressive and assembly was, as Don explained, very easy. Don, I wish to sincerely thank you for the hours spent designing these desks to meet not only our space needs but to fit these into our budget, the tables exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend Paul Downs Cabinetmakers.
Paul Downs Cabinets provided a great product and service. The table is Great quality and manufactured magnificently. Paul was great as well answering all the questions i had in an expeditious manner. Ms. Castro was a Top NOTCH Program Manager, she answered my phone calls and emails promptly. The organization has nothing but High praise for the product and personnel that played a part in manufacturing this product. I would recommend the Company to my colleagues in the future. Thank again
My company had been searching for a conference table to fit our board room, and nothing was quite the right wether it was the wood grain or color, features, style, or size. I reached out to Paul Downs and they immediately responded with information. The design process was very interactive and they took all of our needs into consideration. The table turned out exactly as we had discussed; the finished product is gorgeous. We had our last table for 40+ years and the new table is definitely heirloom quality. Going with a custom option felt a little bougie, but it was the best way for us to get a piece of furniture that fit our space and needs. Great service and product!
We just took delivery of our custom conference room table and the Paul Downs experience was outstanding from start to finish. The figure on the Birds Eye Maple is just beautiful. The quality of the workmanship and attention to detail were exactly what we were looking for. I couldn't recommend them enough. Their willingness to go the extra mile to take care of our needs was a real difference maker. I'd definitely go back to them again and recommend them to our customers as well.
As an interior designer working on commercial projects, it can be challenging to find quality conference tables for clients. Paul downs created a gorgeous custom modular table for my country club client that allows flexibility to configure tables into one large table , two tables or four tables. They worked with me throughout the entire process and provided the necessary drawings and details. The table finish and workmanship is beautiful! I am so impressed with the quality and the service provided by Paul Downs' project team. I recently worked with them again to create a 10' conference table for an office project and we are very pleased with the end result. The table is two-toned and coordinates beautifully with the office design and is integrated with power for their technology needs. I highly recommend Paul Downs!
Paul Downs created a custom U-shape Board room table for our District and it is exactly as expected. The process was simple from design through delivery and installation. The quality is excellent and we are very happy with product.
Paul Downs Cabinetmakers just installed beautiful furniture customized to my new office. The office is new for me but it's also 40 years old and laid out for the different roles of offices and furniture in those days. PDC customized furniture for today's needs, and in particular the lighter demands for storage and shelving that can dramatically open up the space, and they did this with elegant and timeless design. Thanks to PDC, I look forward to engaging them again.
For an Executive Custom Office project in Cincinnati, Ohio, Paul Downs Custom Furniture's Craftsmen created these beautiful pieces from my design. The Owner and I couldn't be more pleased with the spectacular result of this magnificent furniture!Sheri Glazier-BesslerSGB DESIGN
The Paul Downs team was fabulous to work with!! We had a tight schedule on a conference room remodel and they delivered exactly what we wanted on time. In these challenging times, it was great to work with a company that does what they say. We only had a concept of what we wanted when we started the project. They helped with the design and ensured the final products were perfect for our needs. And the quality is exceptional!
Just received and had my custom conference room table installed. Not only was the final piece even better than we had thought (just beautiful) but the entire experience was flawless. From working with the design team to the fact that every estaimated date (build, ship, install) was met. We were very very pleased with the entire process from beginning to end. Great job folks.
We are very happy with our table! I truly enjoyed working with the Paul Downs team. All of the information I received during the inception, the build and the delivery processes was timely and accurate. I enjoyed working with every individual I encountered and everyone was professional. It's hard for me to believe that I found this company on a random google search and it turned out to be great! I would definitely recommend Paul Downs Furniture to friends and colleagues.
We ordered 10 conference tables from Paul Downs Cabinetmakers and our experience was amazing every step of the way. They invited us to tour their warehouse and show us how the tables are made. They are quality tables and we are very pleased with them. I would recommend Paul Downs!! They will not disappoint!
Excellent experience from start to finish. The custom table is gorgeous and the service was impressive. Even prior to ordering they were willing to help the client with electrical placement. Best contract furniture experience this year!
As an interior designer, working with Paul Downs was great peace of mind. We were needing a custom sit-to-stand desk with credenza for a high-profile job and needed the best quality and result. Communication was smooth and they took the wheel with our design direction and intent and applied their expertise. We look forward to working with them again and would recommend them to other designers.
We had the pleasure of working with Paul Downs Cabinemakers Inc on a project in Buffalo NY for a private country club board room makeover. PD designed, fabricated and installed a custom wood executive board table for 14 persons and a beautiful credenza for the room. The people at PD are very professional and easy to work with and the project was a smashing success. Thank you!HHL Architects
They made a school board directors table for us and it is fantastic. It met our needs, met our budget, and it added the missing piece we needed for professionalism in our board meetings. They were great to work with and helped greatly in designing what we needed.
Shipley & Horne, P.A. is a small Administrative Law practice. Paul Downs’ team designed a conference room table which serves as the focal point of our primary conference room. The workmanship and overall quality of the table is readily apparent. From start to finish Paul’s team maintained communications, meeting all stated timelines for delivery. We will not hesitate to rely on Paul Downs Cabinetmakers to support the firm's future custom furniture needs.
Paul Downs made a beautiful center piece for the main area of our office. Its a wow piece for when we have guests...but we use it every day to sit and eat together. Custom furniture is not cheap but when making a statement to a customer or supplier it adds extra credibility. I would highly recommend their workmanship and their team. Very professional and communicative through every step of the process.Thank you - Ben Henson Dynamic Metal Services.
I run a small law firm in Boston, Mass. Over the past 5 years, Paul Downs has built two custom pieces for me, a conference room table and more recently, an L-Shaped desk for my office. Both pieces are gorgeous and of extraordinary quality. Both were built to the exact dimensions we needed. They were not inexpensive and they took some time to arrive, but both items are extremely high quality and will last longer than I will. The customer service, shipping and installation were also excellent.
It is so nice to have a solid, quality, American-made, boardroom table in our offices now. Thank you Paul Downs! The interaction with the design team and our being able to control many aspects of the actual design make this table feel like it's a one-of-a-kind. Everyone involved from accounting to shipping was professional and courteous, and the deadlines given were met at each milestone.We highly recommend Paul Downs Cabinetmakers!
The team at Paul Downs designed an outstanding conference table for our foundation. The table beautifully and richly tells our story. You have surpassed our greatest expectations. It is a family heirloom and a wonderful reminder of our mission for God.
Our company built a new headquarters in 2018 and for three years we searched for the perfect conference room table for our boardroom. We knew we were being picky, but also knew it deserved the perfect table. Finally we came across Paul Downs Cabinetmakers and they helped us custom design exactly what we were looking for. They worked hard to match the existing furniture in the boardroom and reworked our logo into the table to get it just right. We are very pleased with how it turned out. It certainly has that 'wow' factor when walking in the boardroom and seeing it for the first time. We highly recommend Paul Downs Cabinetmakers for anyone searching for that perfect piece of furniture and needs help bringing it to life!
The team at Paul Downs couldn't have been better to work with and the tables are beautiful! They were very accommodating working with our project schedule and the room AV requirements/integration within the tables.Can't wait for the client to move into their new space and start to enjoy them!We will definitely recommend the Paul Downs team for any other custom work desired.
From start to finish, the Paul Downs Custom Furniture process was top notch. The designers took my vision and space and created a beautiful quality piece at a fair price. I highly recommend them for your next custom table project.
Had a great experience getting our conference table from Paul Downs. From the design phase with Nate to the delivery with Andy and Carolina, everyone was extremely helpful and made the experience one of a kind. Easily some of the best customer service I have ever experienced and very thorough in there process.
We had our conference table completed yesterday and looks fantastic in our new facility!The level of service and the quality of our Table far exceeded my expectations for our conference room.Thank you from all of us @CHICAGO ANODIZING COMPANY !
From the moment we had our first call to the installation of our conference room furniture, the level of service was impeccable. The design and craftsmanship of our conference room tables and credenzas is outstanding. We are proud to have such beautiful pieces part of our newly renovated law firm office.
Former employee and wanted to let people know how other American woodworking and conference table manufacturers should operate! Paul Downs Cabinetmakers is a great example.The owner treats his employees like a part of his family. From the guy sweeping the floor all the way to the top, everyone is treated as a valued team member who is actually heard throughout the organization. Everyone’s input is valued.I spent 3-1/2 years working for Paul Downs and it was a wonderfully unique experience in a trade that is often underpaid and undervalued.The team works very well together, from an open initial brainstorming process, to fabrication, to packaging and final installation.You set your own schedule, and there’s never an issue if you have something come up.Pay was great with the owner trying to ensure his biggest asset, his employees, had a livable wage and benefits.It was a great team, great work I could be proud of, and an awesome experience! Keep making gorgeous stuff guys!
The entire team at Paul Downs did an amazing job. They built our law firm a beautiful boardroom table and matching credenza. Everyone (shipping coordinators, project managers, engineers, etc.) went above and beyond to make sure that all of our needs were met. They explained everything and were very responsive throughout the entire process. I highly recommend them!
Working with Paul Downs to design, create and install our company's boardroom table was a seamless process and the finished product absolutely exceeded our expectations. Every team member, from designer to project manager, was super responsive, friendly and demonstrated complete expertise.I wouldn't hesitate to work with the Paul Downs company again and can't recommend them more highly! A truly great experience from start to finish with a beautiful table to show for it!!
The table was exactly as designed and they met the deadline that was promised. They communicated throughout the process and installation went off without a hitch. Everyone is pleased by the new addition to our board room.
This was the very best customer experience I have every had with a custom conference table manufacturer in my 35 years of business in this industry.From the design to the interaction with Paul Downs with the end user to the installation; it was a 10 out of 10 in every way.The end user is even more pleased with the end result than we are!
We would certainly recommend Paul Downs for not only the beautiful conference table and credenza they made for our church but willingness to help us thru the process and patience as we made decisions. Great organization.
Always great working with Paul Downs and their superb craftsmen. Our second conference room table complements our first one that was designed five years ago. High marks from the start of the project to final delivery and assembly at our new offices. Chuck Mosser, EVP/CFO @ IntelliGenesis, LLC
Nate did a wonderful job designing our conference room table incorporating our logo. He was easy to work with and patient when we went through different variations. The final product is absolutely stunning and will be proudly used in my main conference room for years to come.
Hard to express how satisfied we are, not only with the product which is absolutely beautiful but this is the way business should be done! If more companies in the U.S. would provide "real service" like Paul Downs does we would not even consider buying from another country. Every step of the way was a pleasure and extremely professional. Other companies should take note of the customer service and relationship development from Paul Downs. 5 STARS PLUS!
Paul Downs made a custom dining room table and 8 chairs for me years ago. I still love it, and it is in wonderful shape and just as beautiful as when I first bought it. He worked with me to design exactly what I wanted and even went on his own to a furniture shop to see a table that I liked. He designed one that was 10 times better- more solid and stable, more beautiful and with leaves that just magically slid out when I needed a bigger table! I have to say it was one of the best business experiences I have had with anyone. He was patient, nice, flexible and most important, a straight shooter who did what he said. His talent and high standards are obvious once you start working with him. He is a true artist with wood!
Top Notch Company! Excellent customer service and genuinely good craftsmanship. Initially they crafted a beautiful custom table and matching credenza for our boardroom. A year later we asked for another custom table to match the large table and catering credenza that would house a small fridge. They knocked it out of the park on both projects....completely exceeded our expectations! The pictures do no justice to these beautiful pieces. I highly recommend Paul Downs Cabinetmakers if you're looking for quality, custom work.
Paul Downs Cabinetmakers exceeded our expectations, from the very beginning of the design process all the way through to the installation of our conference table and credenza. Great communication and are engaged each step during the process of design, production and installation. We could not be happier with the entire experience.Property Manager Brethren Mutual Insurance Company
Paul Downs delivered a beautiful and well constructed table. They maintained great communication throughout our project and made sure we got exactly what we wanted. Our installation was professional and quick. Even during the Covid pandemic, Paul Downs stayed in contact and kept our project moving. We are excited to gather around our table for many years to come.
We were looking for a modular elegant looking board for our boardroom and were challenged with finding a table that would fit in our rectangular space. The whole process start to finish was professional and Paul Downs staff were accommodating and provided options for our needs. We ended up purchasing the board table, presenter table and two small movable tables. The logo was an option that was suggested by the designer and it was a great addition. The table was assembled by our staff and the documentation provided to us was spot on. The quality of the table and the workmanship is meticulous and you can tell that there was a lot of thought and care put into the design and construction of the table.
A fantastic place to work if you are given the opportunity. Paul has assembled a group of hard working, intelligent, and passionate group of people to deliver a fantastic and unmatched end product. As an engineer, I was offered competitive pay and opportunity to work on exciting projects with diverse challenges. This job takes place in a fast paced manufacturing environment where you will succeed if you have a good attention to detail and are as committed to the end product as everyone else that works here.
To get the idea what Paul Downs is about, you can read Paul's excellent book 'Boss Life' about running a small business or you can take a look at his archive of NY Times columns, you can also ask to discuses their operating manifesto on Culture, Craftsmanship & Prosperity.But seeing his shop in action is really something to witness.In a high-tech sales and design studio, engineers interface virtually with clients around the world designing one of a kind conference tables in real time. After their work has been finalized it goes onto the shop floor where artisan woodworkers and craftsmen use a process of continuous improvement to make custom conference tables and some other furniture pieces.Everything about this shop screams perfectionism. The floors are swept, every stack of vernier or wood board is organized. Work that is better done by machine is done with CNC and other woodworking technology. Finished pieces are assembled and inspected prior to shipping These guys do their work as true craft and design professionals.The final tables can be seen on their website and social media are second to none.This is a high end process for businesses who are ready to invest in the look of a killer conference room that the Paul Downs team can bring to reality.
My experience with purchasing our conference room table from Paul Downs was excellent. They assisted us throughout the process, incorporated our changes, and stored the table until we were ready for delivery. The quality is excellent. Delivery and set up was perfect. Very satisfied.
The most professional company we worked with throughout our construction job. Nate (design) and Andy (project management) were our main contacts. They were engaged throughout the process. They presented multiple options every step of the way. They were extremely responsive and helpful. They delivered on time. Quality of work was incredible. We'll be using them again for other custom furniture needs coming up. Highly, highly recommend them.
I am an architect and interior designer and was seeking a custom made conference table for my husband’s company. I am very particular and highly appreciate quality craftsmanship. Paul Downs made the entire process seamless and efficient, which is important to me...and I am sure to many. Everything was pinpointed and accurate so that there was no question that all my wishes were addressed. The table is exquisite and the quality is top notch. I would definitely recommend them to anyone. Now if I could only convince them to branch into private residential tables!
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 needed a larger conference room table with lots of technology added so it could also function as our Emergency Operations Center. Our Paul Downs Design Engineer showed us a host of options, talked us through the pro and cons and really made the process easy. Now we have the table. It's exactly as designed and expected. Thank you for a great experience. And it was affordable.
We love our table. It sits in our companies largest and most used room. When you walk in the table exceeds the look and feel we wanted in our board room. The process of designing and installation went smoothly and easily. Thanks!!!
I have received TOP NOTCH service at every stage of my project.My project is likely one they are not aiming to get (two flip up 3'x6' custom conference room tables) but they certainly made me feel like it was a BIG deal to them.The attention I received at every stage was great. Small questions were welcomed and answered to my satisfaction.Fantastic company to work with!
My law office needed a fabulous new conference room table. One large enough to hold a room of attorneys, and one beautiful enough to fit in with our historical office. Paul Downs delivered and we could not be happier - with the process AND the outcome!
The process of getting an idea to seeing the idea come to life is awesome. The Paul Downs team is great in relaying information and walking you through the process of getting exactly what you want and helping you fill your space.
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.
After researching custom furniture makers online we discovered Paul Downs. A few years passed between introducing our concept and moving into our new office space where we engaged Paul Downs and worked together. Our designer, Nathan, absolutely nailed it - he listened intently, researched our company independently, and asked the right questions to complete our vision. The custom, 16-person round table is an absolute work of art, along with the other pieces we purchased. Thanks for making this process personal, resulting in timeless pieces for our new corporate office!
They produce magnificent residential and commercial furniture. We built a new facility and looked for our conference room to be a focal point of our new project. We are proud of the work done on our new conference table and credenza. Everyone who take a tour has made a comment on how beautiful the table is they do great work in a timely manner. Our thanks to the team at Paul Downs.
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 complements on the table. Thank you everyone at Paul Downs!
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 time frame 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.
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!
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 any way. I would highly recommend Paul Downs Cabinetmakers for high quality furniture custom built just the way you want it.
Although I am 1000 miles away, I felt like Paul Downs was next door. The Paul Downs designer worked my local interior designer to match the table to my new office building design. The end product is beautiful and adds a special element to our conference room.
Needed a conference room table for a small business run out of the house. Finding a professional table that fit the room and our requirements proved challenging. I found Paul Downs on the web and worked through the design process with them and found their support exceptional. The table was delivered quickly (did I say I was on a tight timeline for a big event). The table has worked great for over a year now. I eventually had a minor issue with a hinge on the door for the power plugs coming slight loose but coincidentally Paul Downs contacted me within a few days to check up on the purchase. They immediately sent a video with instructions and a replacement part. Great service and still love the table.
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...
What does “Agile” mean? It’s the ability to move quickly in different directions depending on the circumstances. In manufacturing, agile is difficult. Factories work best when they make the same thing, over and over, in huge quantities, without modification. The opposite of agile.
Paul Downs is agile. We listen to what our clients want, show them options of how to achieve their goals, and then build whatever they choose. We’re agile because we’re not a factory. We’re a workshop. We don’t produce vast quantities of the same thing. We use a wide variety of materials, techniques, and finishes. We make tables in every conceivable configuration. We build everything we make one at a time. We rely on people, not robots. And people can listen and respond to new requirements better than any factory.
Need some examples? Let’s focus on a request we get from many of our clients: to add their logo or branding to their table. There are lots of ways to do this, and we can switch from one method to another whenever we need to. Here are a few examples of our unique agility:
City of Quincy
A small Massachusetts town wants its Emergency Operations Center to be a focal point for a diverse team of first responders. Paul Downs deploys custom-printed laminate to deliver a very complex graphic design at a budget price. We did the graphics for the client and had Wilsonart print a single sheet of laminate that we used to make the top. As you can see, it’s a remarkable table.
This is a wood inlaid logo – we’ve laser-cut out letters and shapes from colored veneers, and then inlaid them into a figured cherry top. This approach is labor intensive, but the results are stunning. When you want the height of elegance, a wood inlay is the way to go.
Some of the things our clients want don’t fit into neat categories. Hancock, a lumber dealer, asked for a slice from one of their trees as the centerpiece of their table. You asked for it, you got it. We built a glass-covered chamber into the tabletop so that a slice of log can fit neatly inside.
What is your wildest dream? What have your colleagues asked for that you didn’t know how to accomplish? Worry no more. Contact Paul Downs today and we’ll figure out a way to make it happen.
