A Masterpiece in Custom Cabinetry: The Magic Tree


At Lignum Custom Design, we always search for new and innovative methods to bring our client’s custom cabinetry visions to life. A family approached us with the need for a memorable and unique addition to their penthouse apartment – a built-in tree for their children to enjoy. With a dedication to creativity and quality, we eagerly took on this exciting custom cabinetry project.

Our clients were a young family living in a luxurious penthouse apartment in the city’s heart. They had a clear vision for their space – to create a warm and inviting environment for their children to play and explore. When they approached us about adding a custom built-in tree, we were thrilled to bring their dream to life.


The main challenge of this project was to create a functional and realistic tree that would be both safe and appealing for children. The tree needed to be sturdy enough to support play while also being aesthetically pleasing and in line with the high-end finishes of the penthouse apartment. Additionally, the tree had to be designed to maximize space in the room and be easy to clean and maintain.


At Lignum Custom Design, the key to creating a successful project is to listen closely to our client’s needs and preferences. This project was no exception. We worked closely with the family to understand their vision for the space and to determine the best materials and techniques for creating the custom built-in tree.


The final result of the Magic Tree project was indeed a masterpiece. The tree was designed with a sturdy base and trunk made of industrial MDF, laminated in felt for a soft and smooth surface. The branches were crafted from natural maple, adding a touch of organic beauty to the space. The tree was also adorned with painted foliage and suspended wooden hummingbirds in silver and gold, creating an enchanting atmosphere that was both playful and sophisticated. The final touch was a custom swing, which brought the whole vision to life and made a fun and exciting space for the children to enjoy.


There was located in a penthouse, which offers stunning views and a unique and luxurious living experience. The tree’s location within this space added an extra layer of magic and wonder, making it a focal point of the room and a source of joy for the children who lived there. The high ceilings and ample natural light in the penthouse allowed the tree to come to life, with its intricate details and suspended elements creating a whimsical and enchanting atmosphere. The luxurious setting of the penthouse only enhanced the impact of the Magic Tree, making it an extraordinary and memorable addition to the space.


The Magic Tree project is a perfect example of the kind of custom cabinetry solutions that Lignum Custom Cabinetry can provide. With a focus on creativity, quality, and customer satisfaction, we are proud to have brought this exceptional vision to life. Whether a custom tree or another unique cabinetry solution, we are always ready to help our clients get their ideas to life.
