Client Reviews

Museum Projects
“We needed casework for 200 objects and we wanted to work with a local company. It was a difficult project that required a new, more modern design and it was on a much larger scale than we’d ever done. Chris and his team were amazing. They communicated throughout the process and would brainstorm to work through challenges and help us find solutions – they have the tools, the skills and they put in the effort to make sure they deliver quality work. I highly recommend Chris and his team at CK Valenti Designs and plan to work with them again on future exhibits.”
Melissa Simmons
Exhibit Designer / Heard Museum
"I visited and interviewed 12 fabricators, before finding CK Valenti Designs. They worked with us on the design and creation of all the displays for our exhibits – the movable walls, pedestals, cases, interactive kiosks – almost everything you see. I’ve been doing this for 45 years and the quality of work Chris and his team produce is as good as they come and they stay on schedule and in budget!"
Mike Fox
Director / Scottsdale Museum of the West
"Museum work requires a special understanding along with museum quality work. CK Valenti provides quality craftsmanship with attention to detail. I can present a concept and Chris figures out how to build it. I’ve worked with CK Valenti designs on a number of projects and the craftsmanship with Chris goes above and beyond."
Bill Dambrova
Museum Exhibition Designer & Artist
“We had a rough idea for an interactive display to show the rivers around the world. Chris took our concept and came back to us with multiple ideas. In the end he designed and created an exhibit that maximized the space, it’s dynamic and engaging for our visitors and it was on time and on budget.”

Chief Strategic Officer / OdySea Aquarium
“A great collaborator! You can have great design and fabricator, but Chris’s engineering brain and attention to detail set CK Valenti Design apart. The gift of foresight and attention to detail allow them to look at design and see obstacles before it happens and then design a solution.”

“Chris has been a true pleasure to work with. He is extremely professional and his engineering and execution on all my fixtures is top notch. Chris was patient with us through the creative process and all the changes and tweaks we made. He also understood our time constraints and pushed through to make our deadlines. I would highly recommend CK Valenti Design to anyone looking for custom furniture pieces whether it is for their business or home.”

"CK Valenti's shop and office were extremely clean and well-organized, and importantly, made available for a visit that fit my schedule. Chris listened to my concerns for using 'stock' material in a unique way, and then added to the design by suggesting (and having on hand) alternate 'hard-to-find' materials in limited quantities. My client was very pleased with the final product. I would definitely use Chris again as a qualified resource on the next appropriate project!

Chris of CK Valenti Designs is an artist in cabinetry and metal - and in combining both skills on one project. I have worked with him on TV and fireplace built ins as well as bathroom vanities and I'm always impressed with the quality of his construction and finishes. With every design I give him, he is meticulous in details as we review everything inside and out. His finishes are always spot on to the finish sample I request he match, and his pricing is very good for the quality he provides. I'm also amazed by his shop as it is one of the cleanest I've ever seen. I could certainly recommend Chris for any custom cabinetry.

"The craftsmanship of the benches and wine rack for our game room is like no other to be found – absolutely amazing! Every time someone new enters our home, they are in amazement and want to know who built them for us. The professionalism and knowledge of the owners of CK Valenti is un-matchable. I would highly recommend them to everyone!"

Homeowner | Chandler, AZ
“We got the art you sent last week and it is perfect! We are sending it as a wedding gift to friends who married at a restaurant in Brooklyn called My Moon. The restaurant has an outdoor area with a wall that is finished entirely to look like weathered copper- we wanted to send them something by which to remember it!”
