Santos Furniture is a small company that specializes in high quality, well designed unique art furniture. We are large enough to deliver efficient service, yet small enough to build customized, detailed pieces in which the client can take an interactive role throughout the design process.
Santos Furniture designs have appeared in numerous books written by Ralph Kylloe, Elmo Baca, and Chase Ewald. In addition, Santos Furniture has appeared on television shows such as the TODAY show, and the Home and Garden Network. Lester and Santos Furniture was also showcased in the June 2002 issue of Architectural Digest.
When owner Lester Santos begins the design process, his aim is not only to produce a piece of furniture of lasting quality, but also to create a work of art. Each piece starts on the drawing board, where an idea is converted into a working sketch, often applying the tastes or requirements of a specific customer. Lester then hand selects choice pieces of wood to work with the design sketch. Back on the board, he completes the drawing until the curves and burls of the chosen wood fall together to form an aesthetically pleasing look, comfort and function.
Lester bridges and blends many styles together in a way no one else has tried, to achieve a look that is not overbearing, but contains many elements. His specialty is to work with designers to create custom pieces.
Lester Santos' designs are unique and his workmanship is superb. He uses only the finest timbers, meticulously carving each detail by hand. Lester combines wood, leather and his experience to create masterpieces that will last for generations. FIR is the material of choice for strength, durability and its grain definition. It was the backbone of the early legendary builders. CHERRY is used for its strength, beauty and carvability. JUNIPER is used for ornamentation.
At Santos Furniture we feel it is our obligation to help replace our natural resources and preserve our wilderness. To the best of our knowledge, we are the only furniture manufacturer that directly donates a portion of every sale back to the environment, specifically for replacing trees in Wyoming.
We stand behind our award winning product with a lifetime guarantee.
