Our Story

Read More

We believe in doing things right the first time, being the easiest company in the industry to do business with, and delivering your products complete, correct, and on-time.               

 We’re a family owned and managed company. Joe and Polly Mendes are the heart of culture here. With their guidance we’re building smarter furniture for the world at large through environmental sustainability and responsibility. We’ve worked hard to lower our energy consumption, conserving resources and minimizing our impact on climate change.

We’re proud of our Oakland, California home. We’d love to have you visit us and learn more about Creative Wood’s capabilities, products and services. We thrive on solving our customer’s furniture needs and look forward to partnering with you in the near future.

We see change as an opportunity to design and manufacture products with purpose. Blending form and function into objects of personal value and expression that enhance today’s office landscapes.

For over 45 years, our value as an industry leader of mid and upper end contract furniture comes from you, the customer. We are constantly putting ourselves in the end user’s shoes, collaborating hand in hand to provide product solutions that work today and well into the future.

We’ve worked with hundreds of companies all over the country and world. Click here to see a small selection of some of our favorite clients.
