Arroyo Design is a small custom furniture company which is nationally recognized for its well designed and finely crafted furniture often executed in mesquite. All of our pieces are also available in cherry, walnut and maple. Our work is used in both residential and contract settings. Our corporate client list includes Warner Brothers Studios, the law offices of Baker McKenzie, Marriott Hotels and Ritz Carlton. We have been featured in numerous design publications and have appeared on PBS. For a complete list of Editorial coverage Arroyo Design has received, please visit our In the Press section. Like most businesses ours started with a need for something. In the early 1980's while one of us (Elaine) was in law school and the other (Stephen) spent some time in architecture school, we restored historic houses (including our own) to supplement student loans. Like many old houses they all had serious closet deficiencies. Hence our first piece was born, the Presidio Armoire. We have taught school and practiced law, but design has always been a central part of our lives and education. This is not just a business for us. Design is our obsession. Our name is on every piece of furniture that leaves our shop.

We have photos of our large body of work, and we're happy to email or send photos from our portfolio of pieces not shown on our website. We can do this either by style or by type of piece. We can modify an existing design to accommodate your needs, and we are always up to the challenge of designing something new with you.   We are flexible, easy to work with and accustomed to working on design projects long-distance. We ship all over the country and overseas.  The customer is provided with shipping quotes as the completion date approaches. This site is intended to give you an overview of who we are and what we do. If you are interested in ordering furniture, we would like to provide you with personal service. Please contact us at our Tucson showroom and we will be happy to assist you, or email us at

Cherry, walnut and maple are all considerably less expensive than mesquite. Prices of the pieces shown on the website are for the wood shown in the respective photo.  To request a complete price list, please contact us
