  1. I’d like to request a formal quote for a custom bookcase. It is for my Technical Support Department that needs to house returned packages in their office. The dimensions need to be 84” in height, 36” in width and 24” for the shelving depth. I don’t need an expensive wood and would like to go with your least expensive material and have it painted with a black finish. Are you able to quote this project?
    Have a great day!

    Thank you,

  2. Hi,
    We’re planning to order the Arthur W. Brown corner cubby bench and coat rack.

    We have not been able to determine if the wood ‘lip’ that goes around the back and two sides is a standard feature of the corner bench, or if that is mounding that needs to be added. We want to have that lip so the cushion stays in place but if we add it will need to decrease the width by at least a half inch. Please advise,
    Thank you,
    Joanne Mruzek

  3. The lip around the corner bench is a standard feature and it does extend out to the side! Thanks for asking.
