I needed a custom built cabinet for my small treatment room that could hold all of my supplies. Mimy listened and designed what I needed on the spot. I received his computer drawings soon after and we went ahead with looking at different and inexpensive woods to use. He hand picked the wood at the lumbar yard and made my beautiful cabinet. My patients think it is also beautiful and the price was very reasonable for a hand built with love piece. I would definitely use him again.
Mimy is an artist and a gifted wood worker. He made a beautifully crafted front door made from unique African Hardwood. We are very happy with the product and Mimy's skill and professionalism and would highly recommend him for any interior or exterior wood work.
I needed some help with a small space and a cabinet to hold some important family treasures. Mimy came to my home and besides just taking measurements, really listened to what I had in mind for my grandmother's china and crystal. He truly delivered in both design and function. I am a Realtor and he also designed and installed the most beautiful stand-alone cabinet and basin I've ever seen, in a home I have listed that needed some updating. It fit so perfectly with the feel of the home, and was constantly getting awed reactions from Buyers. I believe it was one of the factors that led to the offer on that home! Whether you're looking for a custom-built china cabinet, a stylish desktop cellphone cradle fashioned of mahogany, an elegant coffee or side table, jaw-dropping bathroom cabinetry, a glorious piece of art masquerading as a wine rack, a functional cutting board you feel you NEED to hang on your wall, or any number of delicious items you've been imagining.... Mimy is the one to call. Period. The work is mind-bogglingly exacting and intricate while maintaining simple, flowing lines. Mimy is a master craftsman with an ear for what it is that you want. Set an appointment with him today, and your furniture dreams will come true tomorrow! I know.
The pieces that Mimy creates are very unique, functional and beautiful. Some of his pieces literally take my breath away! Mimy uses mortise and tenon rather than nails and screws and this makes for a much more hardy piece that will last many, many years. Mimy actually creates heirlooms that can be passed down from generation to generation. His sense of color, wood tone, shape, balance and attention to detail are skills that allow him to create some of the most beautiful pieces of furniture that I have ever come across. I highly recommend Mimy for all your wood-working needs, whether you know exactly what you want or you want to brainstorm with him to come up with just the right design, Mimydesigns is definately the way to go!!
We hired Mimy Designs to rebuild and improve a unique piece of office furniture (a large wooden flat file cabinet). The piece came out looking great: The design Mimy drew up turned out to be functional and a lovely centerpiece of that part of the office suite. Mimy stood behind his work: We had a minor problem with the piece after installation and he came by quickly to adjust it. We also commissioned a large wall of custom library shelving. Both projects were completed on-time and on-budget. Prices were reasonable, especially considering it was custom work. His design drawings were clear and ideas were practical and value-oriented. His passion for wood was apparent in the quality of the craftsmanship.
