How we work


Do you have a great idea for furniture or did you see something nice on our website? Then we need to know the measurements and materials you have in mind. Send us a sketch or a drawing of your plans, if necessary accompanied by some pictures that explain the situation, or come by and discuss them in our shop.



Based on this information we will estimate how much material and labour it requires to make your ideas reality. We will then translate this to either an estimate or a quote. Making a quote will usually take a few days. 



When we’ve come to an agreement on our plans, we will send a final quote and ask you for a deposit. Once we have received the deposit, we will schedule the project. Based on the size of the project, the projects on our waiting list and the availability of the materials, we will give an estimate on the processing time.

(Note that this is only an indication and can alter due to unforeseen circumstances)



Let’s get started! Once the project is finished we will contact you.

Usually we will give you a call first, if you don’t answer we will notify you by e-mail.



We invite you to our workshop to have a look at the work we’ve done.

We will also make arrangements for delivery (optional) and you can pay the remaining amount by cash or card (no creditcards).

Congratulations, you are now the owner of a true van Steen!




Within the city of Amsterdam we can deliver your project to your home.

Our standard rate is €90,- (incl. btw) per delivery. The delivery costs for tables are €180,-. 

For deliveries that require the use of a moving lift different rates apply.

We can also take care of installations. Installation costs are calculated afterwards,

at €180 per person for the first hour and €90,- per person for every hour after that.  


What our clients say about us

The desk is absolutely perfect. I am exceptionally pleased with the work, and don’t be surprised when I show up at your shop with a new project.
