Welcome to our new website and thanks for taking a look! We are a custom cabinet and furniture shop serving suburban Chicago. This site will show what we can do, how well we do it, and suggest how we might help you realize your plans. Be sure to visit the Project Gallery where you’ll find photos of some of our favorite projects from the last two decades. If you have questions about our design process, materials, lead times, and so forth, check our FAQ. In the coming weeks we hope to post a number of our favorite Links to sources, style and design ideas, and other sites that will inspire you.
Hope to hear from you!
Tom worked with us to design a bathroom vanity from a photo. His creative vision, communication and service level was outstanding. His willingness to quickly share multiple stain samples via express mail prior to production went a long way to making us comfortable with his work. The finished walnut vanity is perfect and as-designed. He even cooperated free of charge on a necessary change post-delivery. We highly recommend Tom for your project.
Tom of Kokontis and Company did an amazing job on our basement. He created a large bar area with glass display shelving and cabinetry, a TV area with display shelving and cabinetry, as well as a buffet area with drawers and a wine storage unit. Tom was very pleasant to work with, timely with his responses to our questions, and extremely creative during the planning process. He had a great solution for an ugly glass block window behind the bar. He worked hard to give us exactly what we asked and demonstrated excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail.
Tom created custom cabinetry for our mudroom and custom radiator covers. I showed him pictures to start with and he created very helpful renderings of the final product so we knew we were both on the same page. He is meticulous with detail and produced a beautiful, high quality finished product. I would use him again and highly recommend. He also asked us questions about options we hadn’t considered and gave us some great ideas.
