If you’re serious about finding unique furnishings but keep coming up empty-handed elsewhere, take your search to the next level with the experts at 150-year-old, full-service interior design firm Bittners. Started by a German immigrant as a one-man cabinetmaker, the in-house custom wood-working shop now turns out one-of-a-kind dining tables in their showroom. Don’t see something you fancy? Create it yourself—they specialize in custom-made orders like a 45-foot reclaimed-wood banquet table made for a nearby horse farm. (Ask for a behind-the-scenes peek to see chairs and tables being sawed, carved, and crafted.) Or go all the way and hire one of the twenty interior designers for a full home redesign—they’ll jet around the country sourcing reclaimed wood, egg chairs, and whatever else your style calls for.
