Process & Capabilities
The Modern Approach to Custom

At heart, we are craft makers but with over a decade of experience, we have simplified the process by which custom commercial furniture & architectural elements are made.

We combine technology such as 3D renderings, prototyping and drawings with laser-focused project oversight, ensuring your project is engineered exactly as you envision it. As our client’s like to say, Icon Modern just takes care of it! (Keep scrolling to learn all about our Capabilities)

Our process is streamlined into 4 simple steps. If you’d like to meet the team that you will be working with, check this out.


Collaboration + Engineering

When inspiration strikes, we’re here to help. Our A&D experts collaborate with you to transform your idea into a buildable solution, using our versatile capabilities & materials.



Upon receipt of your specification we will quickly develop a detailed line-item quote. Additionally, our team of experts can help you design a piece to your budget or assist in value-engineer recommendations to meet your budget.


Project Oversight

We take it from here! Our project management team engineers the details, producing shop drawings and 3D renderings while coordinating with our fabricators to guarantee accuracy and proper execution.


Production & Delivery

Our team supervises every step of the fabrication process, ensuring your one-of-a-kind vision comes to life, working through any challenges & details on your behalf. We take client service one step further and see your project through to the very end, from delivery (often making sure it will fit through your door) through installation to completion.
