Did am amazing job creating custom counters throughout my 1920s home. The age of the home, plumbing fixture choices, and challenges of getting measurements in a house under construction made for a lot of challenges but he overcame them and delivered beautiful counters that fit perfectly. The craftsmanship is incredible. I consistently had other tradespeople that were working on the house ask about who made the counters. Easy to work with, does great work, and the cost was very reasonable.

Matt was very helpful and friendly. He designed a TV Stand for me. He made it exactly the way I wanted it. It’s so beautiful. The Wood, Paint and Quality are all great. He made the piece for a very reasonable price. Loved working with him. He is super friendly and replies back in mins. Will definitely work with him again. I definitely recommend him😊

I reached out to The Designer Theory for custom furniture pieces. I absolutely love what they made me! Matt’s craftsmanship is spectacular and Jackie was extremely helpful and punctual with communication. They also have beautiful custom glass pieces that can fit into anyone’s home. This duo is too great to pass up! I highly recommend their services!

Jackie and Matt do incredible work! Jackie does the most beautiful designing and glass etching, and Matt's woodwork and resin work are so gorgeous and beautiful. I saw their wood and resin tables, and unique glass etching designs on Instagram and just had to purchase some custom work. The photos attached are two of the pieces we purchased, a coat hanger and a cutting board with a design of me and my fiance's beautiful new house as a little house warming gift to ourselves. Both Jackie and Matt were super easy and friendly to work with, and really prompt. I will definitely be buying from them again! I really want to get a wood and resin coffee table!

I absolutely LOVE the custom piece I had Designer Theory make for me! They were SOOOO gracious and responsive to my many personal visions and questions, and never failed to make me feel like that they would do anything except perfect, gorgeous work! I've seen similar pieces in design catalogs for ridiculously high prices, but Designer Theory charged a great price for the quality of the work they do! I can't wait until they finish my next vision for my mom!
