Contemporary Woods Furniture’s philosophy is that a person should get what they want, not just take whatever is available. That is the reason we offer custom design of individual pieces and work spaces. You can bring in the measurements of your idea or one of our sales representatives will come to your home or office and help you design something especially for you and your space.
For the first 25 years the majority of our products are manufactured of solid oak and oak veneers. But now, under new ownership we’re proud to offer all other hardwoods including Birch, Maple, Walnut, Ash, Mahogany,and Cherry. All pieces are designed, built, sanded, stained, sealed and lacquered locally in Lincoln, Ne at our 10,000 square foot facility. Contemporary Woods is proud to offer many different standard finishes along with unfinished items also being available. Custom staining is available as well, with a ride range of colors and patterns to choose from.
Contemporary Woods was started in the fall of 1982 in a 2-stall garage in Lincoln, NE. The entire staff consisted of 2 people who did all of the design work, production, sale and delivery of the furniture. A few months later, a 900 square foot showroom was opened at 2005 highway 2. In the fall of 1983, the manufacturing plant was moved to a 2000 square foot facility. In the summer of 1984 another move occurred which took the manufacturing to a 5500 square foot facility which allowed for the installation of a spray booth. Designs have chanced along the way from mainly bulky pine furniture to distinctive oak furniture and from an oil stained to a lacquer finished product. In April of 1986, the manufacturing and marketing divisions became separate companies. In July of 1989 the manufacturing plant moved into a larger plant. In the fall of 1995, both the plant and store moved to new locations. The plant has a new 12,000 square foot facility while the retail store moved to 1621 ‘M’ Street. In April of 2002 the retail store moved to 2525 Pine Lake Road. On August 1, 2005 we moved into our Hwy 2 location. And in 2014, we moved to our current location at 4815 S 14th St. Contemporary Woods sales divisions include retail and contract/commercial.
