Creative Elegance closed their doors in December of 2016. The factory was located in South El Monte, California. They were in business more than 30 years. After years of rising costs and challenging business conditions it became clear to the owners that the business was no longer sustainable. In the end, the owners Mark and Aaron Popel satisfied every open order before they closed to the same high standards as they always maintained. I am forever grateful to have had the privilege to work with such a great company. This is a company that is truly missed.

Point Breeze Collection

The Point Breeze bedroom was an original design by Michael Robinson for Creative Elegance launched in High Point, NC in October, 2015. It’s both architecturally intriguing and has a hip and sophisticated aura. With the wide variety of wood and finish choices available, as well as a host of unique elements, this group will appeal to the most discriminating client. The collection included bedroom, entertainment and home office pieces.

Quality features include soft mood lighting around the dramatically shaped platform bed. The nightstands have cantilevered glass tops that give access to a functional space below as well as providing a great look and durable surface. Brushed nickel finished handles give access to drawers made from beautifully finished Maple veneer. They operate with fully concealed, under-mount tracks that have a soft, self closing action that adds to their luxury appeal.

Valencia Dining Collection


The Valencia Collection was launched in High Point, NC in April, 2016 and was recognized as a finalist for the prestigious ISFD Pinnacle Award for design excellence for casual dining.

The Valencia dining collection is an original design by Michael Robinson. It’s architecturally stunning and dramatic in its use of scale and proportion. Crafted in a combination of exotic woods and Select White Birch, there’s an almost unlimited number of combinations and treatments one can achieve. Valencia will create a signature setting in any home!

Continuing with our tradition of offering choice and variety, Valencia has three tables to choose from. In addition to the two fixed sizes, there’s also an extension version with end mounted leaves for easy expansion. The clear glass insert in the table top is a practical surface as well as giving a great view of the structural elements of the table base. Very cool! The buffet features a dynamic graphic design of inlaid veneer that carries on the theme of angularity that the table establishes. It also has great function and utility with adjustable shelves and a convenient storage drawer. The beautifully finished Maple drawer operates with fully concealed, under mount tracks. It has a soft, self closing action that adds to the luxury appeal of the piece.

The Valencia chair is stylish with an elegant posture. It’s made from select hardwoods and finished to perfection. Upholstery features a quilted back, premium webbing, high resilient foam and great fabrics. The chair is a perfect accompaniment to this collection, as well as others.
