This project came to us from a client in the DC area. They were in need of training (or flip top) tables in a conference room , but did not like the look of traditional training tables. To achieve this look there could be no visible wheels and feature an all wood construction.  In addition, the tops needed to flip for nesting, and they needed to be re-configurable. Last week the client sent us a couple install photos of the tables, and we think they look beautiful in their new home.

In this project the customer was in need of a training style table without the metal base that is traditionally found on these types of tables.  CCN’s approach to answering a customers’ needs is evident here- so what makes it a bespoke project?  Bespoke is an adjective for anything commissioned to a particular specification. “Custom-made”, “made to order”, “made to measure” and sometimes “hand-made” are near-synonyms. The word bespoke is derived from the verb to bespeak, to “speak for something”, in the specialized meaning “to give order for it to be made” or commission, first cited from 1583 by the OED, with the adjective in its alternative form “bespoken” first quoted from 1607 in this sense. The term is generally more prevalent in British English than American English, which tends to use “custom” instead.

Since its origin CCN has utilized this “custom-made” or “made to order” approach to building high quality, hand crafted office furniture.  We view every job as an opportunity for the customer or end user to get exactly what they want in the size and configuration they need as opposed to having to order “off the rack” and settling for what is available.  Visit us to see the CCN difference.
