We are Functional Furniture, a custom cabinet-making shop located in Christopher, IL, a city of 2,800 souls. For those who think of Chicago when the word Illinois is mentioned, think again. Detroit and St. Louis are closer to Chicago than we are. The people in this part of the state are laid back and enjoy a lot of different outdoor activities like hunting, fishing, boating and camping. Physically, Christopher is located about 70 miles north of the southern tip of Illinois, on the northern fringe of the Shawnee National Forest. We are south of Louisville, KY, and closer to Louisville (and Memphis) than we are to Chicago.
In 2008, we began making urns for a funeral home director in Southern Illinois who wanted an urn that was unique, elegant, built better than those he was finding elsewhere, and made in America.
The owner of Functional Furniture, a Viet Nam vet (see the military discounts available), has been a cabinet-maker since 1978, having previously run a shop in Bloomington, IL, for 25 years. We have made kitchen and bath cabinets, entertainment centers, curio cabinets, fireplace mantels and surrounds, store fixtures, chairs and tables, locker rooms, trophies, and millwork. We know how to work with wood, and we are picky when it comes to details. When you buy from us, you are buying quality products and you are buying manufacturer direct. We only sell what we make, not what is made overseas. If you are looking for an urn that is cheaply made and has seen more of the world than you have, buy one from somebody else because that is not what we sell.
Our urns are made by hand, by American workers who pay American taxes to support American schools, roads, and institutions. While it is true that we use machinery to cut and process the wood that we use, our urns are essentially hand-made. The material is hand selected for appearance, hand-fed into the machines, assembled by hand, hand sanded, hand finished, and hand packaged. The finished product is being visually inspected throughout the manufacturing process and, as a result, most defects in the material (keep in mind that wood is a natural material and defects, both structural and visual, are inherent) are found and culled before any urn reaches the packaging area. You only get the best urn we can make.
That having been said, we recognize that none of the people who toil for you in this process (owner included) are able to walk on water. For this reason, we offer to replace, free of charge (freight included), any urn which has a structural or manufacturing defect. We further offer to exchange (freight not included) any urn that you find to be visually unappealing. We want you to be happy with your purchase, in spite of the purpose for which it to be used.
As was mentioned, Functional Furniture is a Custom cabinet-making venture. Should you have a need (or a want) for an urn with a specific volume, we can build one for you. We stock only the urns that are listed for sale, but, if you are willing to wait for us to make one to your specifications, we can do it. All you have to do is contact us.
