PASSAIC, N.J.-- Contemporary furniture manufacturer Contempo Space ( identifies trend among homeowners and interior designers toward more individualization when choosing furniture.

"We see a 30% increase in custom furniture orders this year, compared to orders for standard pieces," remarks Gary Flax, design consultant. "This time last year, 20% of retail orders were for custom pieces. So far this year that number is 26%."

Custom Furniture Defined

"Our furniture is made to order, and customizable with different materials and handles," explains Flax. "There are about 10 different wood finishes for customers who prefer the look of wood furniture. For modern spaces, glossy black or white are popular, also our signature colored glass." 

Glass and Mirrored Furniture 

Modern furniture design, characterized by smooth surfaces and clean lines, is the perfect recipient for the two dozen glass colors and mirrored materials Contempo Space uses for some of its most unique furniture pieces.

"Customers have said it's impossible to find another company that can make what they want in mirrored or colored glass. Knowing we have the capability to make whatever they need is refreshing to them."

Visualizing the Possibilities 

"Customers in New Jersey or New York can visit our showroom and see our capabilities and furniture, but it's tougher for customers in places like Chicago or Miami."

Custom Furniture Gallery

The company has solved this problem with an online custom furniture gallery section. One-of-a-kind furniture of all kinds is photographed at the time it is set up in the customer's home or business and uploaded to the site.

Custom wardrobes, entertainment centers and bookcases are represented, as well as some categories of furniture that don't appear anywhere else on the website. To see the new furniture gallery, visit:
