Some say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but not when it comes to your furniture. Retail stores have swapped solid wood for composite materials and want you to believe it's the same, but we know better. Alamo Design Co. designs and fabricates custom pieces from start to finish, engaging you in the process every step of the way.

It's time to reconnect with our furniture.
After all, we live our lives on it.


Let's build something so fine your kids will fight over it one day.

Whatever the idea, we're here to make it happen. When you shake our hand, you shake the very hand that carries your idea from conception to creation. You design what works for you instead of figuring out how to make it work.

Let's roll up our sleeves and start from scratch on a project that fits you, your home, and your lifestyle.

Whether we're making furniture to fit your space, reworking an existing layout, or starting with a blank canvas, Alamo Design Co. collaborates with you to craft and create your vision, down to the smallest of details, until it's exactly what you imagined

And then you watch it come to life board by board, step by step, carefully crafted and refined into exactly what you envisioned.


Alamo Design Co Tampa FL Custom Furniture Gabe Tavarez Sanding Wood.jpg


Gabe Tavarez founded Alamo Design Co after spending years apprenticing in and later managing a local shop, relentlessly pursuing his craft. Drawing inspiration from midcentury design, Gabe incorporates iconic elements into much of his work, but draws satisfaction from creating pieces clients love, regardless of the style.

He enjoys problem solving, welcoming design challenges that allow him to step outside of his comfort zone and implement creative strategies. You’ll never find him cutting corners as every effort is guided by the philosophy that ‘good enough’ never is.

When he’s not busy in his Tampa, FL shop, Gabe can be found wrasslin’ with his two rugrats and annoying his wife.
