Custom Design: We work with you on a design you will love, then build in the functionality that's perfect for you.

Our design sense is inspired by Modern and Contemporary designers which lends itself to clean, comfortable & relaxed living.

We are builders as well as designers, so we employ the latest building materials including Green products, reclaimed woods, and low VOC finishes. Our samples will inspire you.

We are technically minded, so we plan ahead for new television broadcast standards, use only the best quality materials and hardware, and offer a wide variety of specialty lighting, operated in creative ways, like concealed touch dimmers.

Our initial estimate is complimentary. An $85.00 per hour design fee applies thereafter.  Out of State consultation is a flat fee plus expenses. 


Dale Meiners Artist, Artisan, Furniture Maker, and Designer

Meiners, the creative, has enjoyed most of his life in the Arts. He studied music composition prior to founding the pre-Smashing Pumpkins band the Marked with Billy Corgan. He then met and nurtured folk artist Wesley Willis, presenting his first art show at Meiners' gallery The Love Loft in Chicago's budding Wicker Park neighborhood. Recording and touring followed with highlights including tours and releases with Sublime, articles in Entertainment magazine and appearances on MTV. Dale also used this time traveling to visit nearly every art museum in the country, being especially moved by Egon Schiele's masterpiece in Minneapolis, Dali's "Lincoln in Dalivision" in Sarasota, Klimt and Van Gogh's 2 sided painting in New York, and Picasso's blue guitarist here in Chicago. This experience provided a foundation for his utilitarian direction which he later translated into a unique design style. Reduced details, clean lines, and flowing materials; creating a visually enticing style of furniture. In addition to Trimline, Dale also teaches furniture design and fabrication techniques.
