Our Approach

Sustainability, quality and bringing personality to design. These matter to us. We’re not a large quantity furniture maker and manufacturer and we don’t strive to be.

For us, it’s personal – we have ideas, you have ideas. Together we will create custom furniture and architectural features – unique and a joy to experience.

We incorporate recycled and reclaimed materials, use low VOC coatings, sealants and adhesives, reduce and recycle our waste to reduce impact to landfills. We take seriously our commitment to protecting and preserving our earth’s natural resources.

Our Story

Almost 40 years of Architecture and Interior Design is our heritage. Storytelling through design is innate to everything we do.

We’re excited to bring the highest level of design and craftsmanship to create custom furniture and architectural elements.

Unique Custom Furniture

The Sullivan Workshop designs and fabricates custom furniture, made to order. We  design and fabricate items ranging from vintage industrial to modern. Our furniture incorporates steel, aluminum, wood and glass – equally suitable for corporate headquarters, offices, restaurants, retail stores, urban lofts and stately homes.

Commercial Architectural Fixtures and Furnishings

Barn doors, hardware, display cases, shelving and cabinets – just a few of the special furnishings we design and handcraft for you. These unique high quality pieces will set your project apart from the mundane and pedestrian. What sets us apart is the ability to provide high design solutions,  and solve construct-ability and installation challenges. What you don’t see is more important than what you


Custom Millwork and Details Solutions

Millwork design at it’s best is the blending of beauty, functionality, efficiency and technology. Translating design requirements is what brings personality to objects. We love to discover the challenges and opportunities that give each piece its own genuine character. Whether your style is traditional, rustic, contemporary or an urban loft – our handmade shelving, cabinets, tables, islands and barn doors will enhance your décor.


What Sets Us Apart?

The Sullivan Workshop has become a unique and valuable resource to architects, interior designers, corporate real estate, furniture dealers and home owners . We fill a void by designing and fabricating custom, high quality items in small quantities. We solve problems and meet challenges head on. Our philosophy is to take meaningful commissions that enable personal interaction. That results in objects that create excitement and are a joy to own and use.

Our clients include Interior Designers and Architects who have a critical need for an element that solidifies their design vision, high profile corporations who have a story to tell through the incorporation of historical artifacts that tell their history and reinforce their corporate brand; and homeowners who have searched in vain for the perfect furnishing.

While every item is handcrafted, we use advanced software and specialized state of the art CNC tools to produce items of exacting standards.

We’re proud that everything we make is designed and fabricated in Charlotte, NC – US
