Custom pieces crafted in-store at Ainsworth Custom Designs are commissioned by those who want something completely unique that will last decades. The shop specializes in metal furnishings, and the motto behind it all seems to be to marry art and function, with furniture pieces made from industrial materials such as aluminum, wrought iron, stainless steel, copper and brass. The sleek designs are also expertly executed in contemporary materials including wood, fabric, glass and marble, tearing down traditional notions about what should be used in the construction of household furniture.
For the Locals
As well as a showroom of furniture pieces that double as works of art, Ainsworth Custom Designs also acts a platform for local artists to feature and sell their own work. Handcrafted jewelry, fashionable home accessories, wall art, mirrors, candlesticks and more can be found in a constantly changing display of local arts and crafts. Also for sale is handcrafted pottery and leatherwork for textile fans.
A Sign of the Times
If it's more drastic measures you wish to take in redecorating or renovating your home, Ainsworth Custom Designs also offers residential installation of steel kitchen features and spiral staircases. They've also branched out into the commercial world, and provide installation of security gates, signs and more.
