What We Do

Creating spaces you want to live in - that's our specialty at Inside the Box. We build custom interior spaces and functional furniture and lighting to make every space you live in a special place.

Style & Quality

Our room renovations are designed with careful attention to details and built to last. Our furniture and lighting designs are designed to be used and very functional as well as beautiful. Quality is a matter of pride built into everything we do.

100% Handmade

All of our furniture and lighting is made locally by hand in the tradition of artisans and skilled craftsmen/women. Each piece is therefore unique and fully customizable. Materials used for room renovations are carefully selected to ensure the quality and finish meet or exceed your expectations.
