Your furniture should be, too.
Sound familiar? You’ve been on the hunt for some new home furnishings, and you've been to every furniture store in the area; YOU THINK! Nothing has the lines you want, all the wood looks flimsy, and you have the vague recollection you've seen the furniture before, possible in your next-door neighbor's living room. Since you're a true original, it only makes sense that your furniture would be too. If you feel like you need to have that original look that exudes you, visit Surroundings Furniture & Design, a showroom of custom dining-room tables, buffets, bookcases, armories, built-ins and more, with a vast majority of our furniture made by American Families from all over this great land.
Owner Christine Borchardt has a degree in interior design with a specialty in custom furniture making from Philadelphia University's School of Engineering & Textiles. She used that knowledge to create a small store 11 years ago in Egg Harbor City New Jersey after working for Fairhaven Wood Works in Fairhaven Connecticut for four years. After seven years in Egg harbor City Surroundings grew to a 2500 square-foot showroom of custom furniture representing the work of over 30 master crafts people, located in Linwood New Jersey.
In May of 2009 Surroundings Furniture and Design moved into our current home on Tilton Rd in Northfield, New Jersey with over 5000 square feet of furniture and accessories. Choosing everything from the wood, to the edges, to the glass, to materials used and so much more, customers only have to imagine their dream product before a craftsman with that artisan flair can execute their vision.
Once the design process begins, Borchardt or her staff will visit clients' homes and get a sense of their overall design scheme. No purchase it too big or small for a home visit to make sure the product will work is a customer’s home. After discussions with the customer, Surroundings creates original drawings of the piece, the room or the entire house. Customers and the Surroundings staff can make changes until everyone is pleased with the desired result. Most furniture pieces take between 4 to 12 weeks to be delivered. Remember for it to be 100 percent correct it must be made to the highest standards.
When you enter Surroundings, you will feel different and will understand just how special you are. At Surroundings the customer is our focus, and the focus is on providing you with the most value in every piece.
