A Few Reasons To Have Us Build Your New Furniture

  • No theft or damaged furniture from shipping/importing of your current furniture. No freight, no taxes and no customs to deal with .
  • We hand make your furniture exactly as you wish using your designs and photos. We have two artisans that do nothing but carve the designs you wish .
  • We use natural, kiln dried, ( No veneers or MDF/Pressed Sawdust ) Costa Rican hardwoods that are sustainable. This can give your new home the finishing touch of the Costa Rica that we all love. I place emphasis on DRY as others use damp wood which is much cheaper but falls apart later as it warps.
  • Our production commitment is 99% on time, or before schedule. We can also deliver and set up for you.
  • Our references are 100% of our past customers. Just ask or look on our website .
  • With kitchens and baths, we are pleased to come visit you in your home at a time that is convenient .
  • If you are out of the country, we would be pleased to mail you samples of wood, stain, ect .. We want you to enjoy a hassle free transaction with us.
  • We offer a Lifetime Limited Warranty on Fine Furniture of Sarchi products. No one in Costa Rica does this. Once you pay any warranty is gone. You probably already know this.
  • For your additional convenience, we can accept your personal check in the US for partial or full payment.
  • We have telephone numbers to contact us in the US and Canada. We respond immediately and can always be reached during normal business hours.

Hello, Adolfo, Everything looks beautiful! Your guys did an excellent job. I would be happy to give you a great reference. If he can't reach me by phone, you are welcome to give him my email.

It was a pleasure doing business with you. Your excellent service is a refreshing change from some of the others we have worked with.


Just want to take minute and thank you and your crew who delivered our furniture to us in El Carmen a couple of weeks ago..............What a group of really professional guys.

We are very please with the quality of the furniture and craftsmanship.

That being said, how about a quote to make us this table and 8 chairs out of the same wood you made the coffee table from ?

Adolfo was wonderful to work with. I am so pleased with my sectional and so many have commented on how beautiful it is.

IT IS AMAZING!!!! I'd hug your neck if you were here! It is so much more beautiful than I would have ever dreamed of it being. I am so grateful to you and who ever did the actual carving & painting. The colors are just perfect. Each time I look at it I see another little detail of the carving. I have already been showing it off to my friends here and they are in awe of the craftsmanship! Thank-you to all of your staff-- it is truly magnificent.

Hi Adolfo, we are back in the States already.........so wish we could have stayed longer, but wanted to send a huge THANK YOU again for the furniture you made for us, and for getting it all done so we could have it ready for our stay.  We are excited to show it off!  When we get pictures downloaded in our house, we will send them to you.  We had a few people from Montezuma ask us where we got our furniture, so I will be giving your name out!

"Adolph es El Mejor! We love your furniture in our condo and are ordering more. Now we find out that you deliver to North America also. How do you do it? Do not buy furniture from anyone else!"

Hola Y'all,

 Oh my goodness...... Steve called to tell me how amazingly beautiful ALL the furniture is and how talented your carvers are. He was sooo SO pleased!!! I think he talked more about the furniture

than he did about the house. Then my son, Beau got on the phone to tell me the same and how much he LOVED his Iguana bed and every piece of furniture in the house! I understand

from my guys that the dining table, big end chairs and side chairs are going to take my breath away when I see how beautiful......

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.... for making this beautiful furniture for us and for making my home special.

 I didn't get any pictures yet :) and I will not be able to see any until my guys come home because we had one very important suitcase lost or stolen?? It had many important things for the house to set up

computer... phone stuff (the one Tom recommended) router, handmade tiles from California for my mosaic artist to install, deadbolts, door knobs, bedding, gifts :( sooo many things.

So that means they have no service what so ever at the house. Bummer! Anywho... I am looking forward to the furniture photos you took. Probably best not to put too many on one page as I have been

having trouble with emails that are too big. They sometimes go back to sender. So it is ok.... to send many emails with the pictures. However.... we didn't have any trouble the last time

you sent pics.... :) Thanks!

Have a lovely day,


Much love & gratitude to You, Tom and wonderful furniture company.

Thanks for getting this to us so quickly. That is the first time since I got to Costa Rica that something was sent early. I  would like to order two more pool chaise lounges with the cushions and I  umbrella.  Also I would like to get two rectangular or square tables to be placed be between the pool chaise lounges . Not big tables but ones you can put your drink on or you tanning lotion, keys , etc.  also we do need a round table with four chairs to be on the pool patio or perhaps casita patio. Teak like the furniture we just got from you. Table  38- 42 inch diameter. But no larger. Send me the pricing on this.  Again thanks.

Tom, Hey man, you should see the furniture! It's fantastic. If you ever want us to do a commercial for you we're on. However, Adolfo told me that he was pretty busy right now. We put in an additional small order also. So maybe you don't need our commercial. If you ever need a reference, we're good for that also. We are going to be at the condo (God willing) in late May and a few days into June. If you are in C.R. then or any other time that we are there, come on down to the condo.

Hope all is well,

Gary and Lynne


Sorry for any delay, I’ve just been real busy with my own business over the last several months.  The furniture is spectacular.  It arrive in almost perfect condition, thank you so much for all of the care taken to protect it.  It took me close to a week to unpack it.  I’ve taken some great photographs and will be sending them to you as soon as time permits.  I also want you to send me directions on how to best maintain the exceptional finish you’ve created for each piece.  I may also want your recommendations for how to make minor repairs to any normal wear and scratches, etc. that may occur into the future?

Give me a few days to put together the photos and send them to you then we can speak further about the above and get my testimonial on your web page.

Hope is well and thank you for all of your efforts.

Adolfo so good to here from you! You are a great guy. The chairs are awsome. We are in Panama now heading to the San Blad Islands. If you ever need help getting started in the States let me know. I will be back in Jaco one day and look you up. I met this guy in Costa Rica, he made some chairs for our boat and did an awsome job. If you ever need any custom outdoor or indoor furniture made you should call him his work in first class and he works very hard to please. Send him any photos or plans and he can make them for you out of quality Costarican wood, not at Miami prices. I would suggest designing some cool outdoor furniture let him make it for you.

Dear Tom and Adolfo,

In early March I traveled to Costa Rica and stayed in my home there for a week. It was my first chance to see the furniture Adolfo made for me in person.

The quality of of the furniture was excellent and it looks great. I had a lot of furniture made, pretty much everything to furnish a 1,700 sq foot house. It was all made to my specifications and with Adolfo's help and the web site pictures we really have some nice furniture now.

The Sectional Sofa with sofa bed looks fantastic and is very comfortable. The Sunbrella fabric you suggested looked and felt great and is very durable. The square counter height table really turned out great. It takes up less space and seats eight comfortably. It's much better than a conventional rectangular table. The chairs for this table are also extremely solid and comfortable.

The round coffee table with the 3 directional slats is really a work of art. I got several compliments on it.

I also had a bigger Easy Chair made which also exceeded my expectations. It also has the Sunbrella fabric, which I can recommend highly, and it is very comfortable. The matching Ottoman for the sofa and chair are a very good size and go well with the sofa and chair.

The beds were amazing. They look great and are very solid. The bunk bed was beautiful as well. The TV entertainment center and even the night stands all were of the best quality.

I was very impressed with the entire outcome and both Adolfo and Tom kept me informed at every step of the process.

Initially I was concerned about furnishing my home in Costa Rica based on the quality of what I'd seen in furniture stores there and in other homes. I can say that what you get from Fine Furniture of Sarchi really is fine furniture that you will be impressed with and which will be very durable.

It is solidly build and very comfortable. We had many admirers and I was able to tell then happy we were with you amazing service.

I will send along a couple of photos for you.

Take care and thanks again.


Hello Adolfo,
We would just like to thank you for your excellent service and terrific furniture. 
The cushion material we picked from Outdoor Fabrics is beautiful, everything we were told it would be.  The loveseat and chair are very comfortable and we love the oil finish. Can you tell us what we should use on the wood? Is there an oil or cleaner we should look for?

We would be happy to recommend your company to anyone interested in fine Costa Rican furniture.

Thanks again.

I have been in Costa Rica for a week with out internet ..sorry for the delay in responding.

First of all - the beds are beautiful!!! Thank you very much for delivering them in time for my arrival. I am very excited about the rest of the furnishings !!!

OJOCHAL, Puntarenas

The bed is absolutely spectacular! When I first saw it put together, I could only say WOW ! I keep having to run upstairs and admire it. The next project will be matching nightstands and a dresser of some sort. I'll be contacting you again soon with my new order. You really exceeded my expectations.

Thank you so much!


Fabulous and Fantastic! I'm so, SO pleased!

Thank you,
Phyllis Warman


Adolfo and Tom, We can’t thank you enough for the wonderful furniture.  Everything is absolutely perfect and more than anything we are very impressed with your very professional service.  Now I need to figure out what else I can have you make.  So when we get internet at the house I will be looking again.  Our bank let us know this morning that the wire transfer went out this morning. 

Many many thanks,

Georgianna & Gary

Yes I highly reccomend hiring Tom's services.  When you found Fine Furniture of Sarchi you stumbled accross a gem.  It is very difficult as a fourener to receive a fair deal in Costa Rica as many of them have the demented view that we are rich beyond god.  I sent Tom pictures of furniture that I wanted built.  He was reasonable about pricing, has an incredible team of woodworkers that matched the design perfectly.  I was beyond impressed when i recived my furniture on time, all wrapped carefully so to not be damaged.  I inspected the construction and can tell you that I would not have found better product anywhere. They made me a couch, two chairs, coffee table, end table, dinning room table, six chairs, three bar stools, and a dinning room buffet table. . If I had known that I had this kind of efficient and expert service available I would have had all my furniture made from Tom's company.  My only regret is that I found him too late and had made deposits for king sized beds, armoiurs and night stands from another company and am still waiting for missing pieces more than one year later.

My only advice is to stay away from any Tica'a (Costa Rican) designers.  It will be a nightmare to figure out that you actually paid them to screw you over.  Get assistance from Tom on the furniture, get a drawing from your builder, design it yourself or design it out of country, shop your art work and pieces in San Jose, buy and bring your own linens, curtains and fabrics.

I got Toms company off a phone pole. I gave him and Adolfo plans from American designers and all these were executed perfectly. A+ for all those. My wife had some pieces made from front photos- B+ for those ( applying US standards)- by CR standards, even these get an A. The only complaint is the quality of the upholstered cushions-they use hard foam, and no inner springs- the sofas are stiff. The micro fiber fabric they have is better than I expected.not much choice- buy material in US and take it by suitcase. The service was first rate. Very attentive, every effort made to get everything right. They replaced a seat cushion we did not like. Delivery was fine.  We have had many problems in CR, this was a pleasant surprise.

His standards are high and he delivers what he promises.

Had dealings with him since 1976 and he delivers on time and does what he says he will do!
