Custom Fine Furniture: From Design to Delivery
Gregory Hay got his start in this industry as a carpenter 39 years ago. Fascinated by the historic details of building furniture, he started designing and building high-end custom furniture in 1989. Gregory has always had an affinity for solid wood and understands its capabilities in all of its various applications. What sets Gregory Hay Designs apart is our meticulous planning and creative process that always involves you, our customers.
As a fine wood craftsman, Gregory has taken the time to ensure that he has perfected his craft. His pieces are not just pieces of furniture. They are works of art. Every piece is unique and completely original. It is impossible to find two of a single item. He does this because he believes that the beauty lies in the uniqueness of each piece. Furniture that reflects artistry and hard work- the type of furniture that promise’s quality and stylistic timelessness. Gregory creates pieces that are meant to stay in the family for years, even generations, to come.
This is exemplified in his elliptical pool coping made from solid mahogany and elements on the Chinese Pavilion (pictured right).
Hand shaping and hand planing are skills critical to the process of giving life to custom fine furniture. These techniques are utilized as the basis for his designs, large and small, as they each take on a personality of their own. “When you are able to take the time to dig into every aspect of a project, it becomes more than just a job- the furniture you build becomes a reflection of who you are” – Gregory Hay
