CK Valenti Designs Delivering Quality Craftsmanship and Superior Service

CK Valenti Design's WorkshopChris and Kate Valenti launched CK Valenti Designs in 2005, designing and building custom residential projects that included cabinetry, furnishings, and artwork. This evolved into business-to-business projects for restaurants and corporate offices, and into a line of custom product demonstration displays and interactives for the semi-conductor industry.

When CK Valenti Designs was selected to complete our first museum project, we knew we’d found our niche. Custom fabrication is an art and interactives are a science. Working with museums allows us to combine them in unique installations that educate and engage visitors.

In early 2015, we completed our largest museum engineering and installation effort, outfitting Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West with display cases, interactives, and even modular gallery walls. Since then, we’ve designed and created interactive displays for the internationally acclaimed Heard Museum, OdySea Aquarium in North Scottsdale, and River of Time Museum in Fountain Hills.

Our Philosophy

We design and build unique, custom woodwork and metalwork pieces for clients who value quality craftsmanship and superior service.

  • From initial concept to project delivery, prototype to production, we’re focused on quality. Our skilled team of engineers and craftsman work under Chris’ direction to deliver a product that exceeds expectations.
  • We deliver a superior experience for our customers by returning calls promptly and keeping you informed about the status of your project.
  • We provide an alternative to catalog purchases, offering you the ability to enjoy something unique, where custom really does mean “made just for you”.

Meet the Team

Chris Valenti

Chris has a long history of working with wood, beginning when he was very young. His father, a union carpenter in New York, introduced him to the craft and Chris has continued to build his skills over the years. While pursuing his college education, Chris worked in residential and commercial renovation for high end homes in Manhattan and surrounding areas in New York. An electrical engineer by degree, Chris left the semi-conductor industry to pursue his passion of building beautiful works with his hands.


Kate Valenti

Kate complements the engineer in Chris with an eye for design, and describes her designs as modern with a traditional warmth. Kate and Chris favor clean lines and patterns that enhance the beauty of the raw wood and metal materials they use in their unique designs.
