Experience the universe from a new perspective.

Design transcends time and space.  From our beginnings in 1854, Bittners has been creating these inspirational, timeless environments. We set the bar high and always design with an uncompromising commitment to quality that is the hallmark of Bittners today. Our future is strong and vibrant which will propel us into our next 160 years.

See beyond the horizon.

We envision space without limits. Designing with a clean canvas takes an environment to a whole new level.  It allows you to experience the space with no boundaries…no beginning, no end.  We create sophisticated design that transcends borders.  The vision is yours, the canvas begins with Bittners.

Design starts with your lifestyle,
expressed with a creative mind and an open heart.

Your story, your life and your experiences inspire the creative process in designing your space. We build that connection between you and your space so that it stirs the senses…allowing you to experience it with your eyes. From colors, textures and shapes to innovative space planning, we approach your project with boundless imagination and the wisdom to bring it all together.



Our lifelong passion.

Our deep passion for creating cutting-edge, inspirational design didn’t start in a classroom. Our award-winning design team began their love of design at an early age. Through years of experience, our designers can orchestrate a space with balance, harmony, sophistication and function, all to express your lifestyle.

Our projects span the country with numerous projects in New York, California, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Texas, and Kentucky as well as New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and Nantucket.

Mastering the wood comes from blending cultivated talent with a deep understanding of old world craftsmanship.

Our journey began in a small custom wood shop where a German immigrant, Gustave Bittner, envisioned space without limits.  He mastered the art of woodworking using old world craftsmanship to give his clients custom, handmade furniture.

We continue the tradition of creating high-quality, custom furniture today.  Our on-site master craftsmen work diligently creating handmade pieces from chairs, dining room tables, bureaus and headboards to bookcases and wall art.  These crafted treasures are handed down from generation to generation.

With our artisans, your imagination can become reality.
