FINE CUSTOM FURNITURE
Sara Jaffe designs one-of-a-kind furniture and cabinetry upon commission. All pieces are fabricated in the San Francisco Bay area in collaboration with highly skilled craftsmen and artists. This ensures good communication and allows us to develop and refine special details that are integrated into the designs.
Sara’s custom furniture is found in the finest homes, businesses and vacation retreats.
Sara Jaffe Designs offers furniture from three acclaimed collections made upon order to your specifications. The collections are fabricated in the San Francisco Bay Area, in collaboration with highly skilled manufacturers, craftsmen and artisans to insure attention to detail.
Sara Jaffe works with corporate and residential designers and consultants to create a team based on what is required for a larger project. We also work with other ﬁrms as part of the team, or as a consultant, to develop speciﬁc aspects of a project. Developing a project as a team insures jobs are more effectively and comprehensively developed.
Design services include learning about the client’s needs and requirements, developing schematic ideas that lead to the ﬁnal design, creating complete construction documents, overseeing fabrication, delivery and installation.
We can assist and coordinate with the selection of other furniture, textiles, furnishings, materials, and ﬁnishes. This includes working with “to the trade showrooms” and designing unique elements that require specialty artists such as wood carvers, metal smiths, faux ﬁnishers and stained glass artists. The intent is to create the best possible outcome for the project.
