Mid-century style doors and decorative panels from The Millwork Market

mid century modern decorative panelsBreaking news today: There’s a new player in the increasingly competitive market for mid-century modern style doors and decorative screens: The Millwork Market, based in Austin, Texas, has been in soft launch for several weeks, and today the company is officially throwing its doors (pun!) wide open to share all the details about their new venture. Thanks to a tip from reader Thomas, we are first on the internet with their news release and promotional photos… let’s take a look. 

millwork-marketThe Millwork Market is an all-new enterprise started by a team that has 18 years of experience in the hardwoods and millwork industry, according to their website. To launch, they’ve created dozens of all-new designs for exterior doors, interior doors and decorative screens. Their interior doors actually marry a door frame with a decorative screen — very pretty and very intriguing to consider how to use in a house.

The Millwork Market also told me that the company is planning to launch door-lite kits in the near future.

(Please note, while it’s based in Austin, The Millwork Market is not associated with Crestview Doors, The Millwork Market told me.)

    There are so many stunning choices among the interior doors it would be hard to pick a single favorite. I sure was hoping for a bit more popular pricing though. While I can see treating the front door as an investment it would be hard to channel that kind of dough into interior doors that you would probably want/need multiples of. Fun to look, dream, and drool though.

  2. TerriLynn says

    Yeah, I wish we could get an affordable option. I am back to looking for original throw aways. You would think there would be a few here and there considering where I live, but NOTHING.

    I am less than thrilled with my own front door and cannot wait to switch it out to something more appropriate for the house.

    • Robyn says

      Check to see if you have a local Habitat for Humanity ReStore. Lots of options there for doors and windows…

  3. ineffablespace says

    The interior doors are open grilles, so they could not be used for privacy applications without customizing, (which they will do).

  4. says

    I know they say they are not affiliated with Crestview, but they are clearly using the same door and millwork designs. I understand not wanting to be associated, but can someone confirm if they purchased the rights to these designs or perhaps purchased Crestview?

    • says

      To clarify: I ask not out of malice, but because I’ve been a huge cheerleader for Crestview and their team. If Crestview has been rebranded or sold, I would like to know to satiate my curiosity.

    • pam kueber says

      Ashly, I asked essentially this same question and was told by The Millwork Market’s Publicity and Marketing director that The Millwork Market’s designs are their own, the company is their own — they did not buy Crestview or Crestview designs. (In fact: Crestview’s website is live again.)

      I have asked The Millwork Market to respond directly to your question directly, as well.

    I love that there are folks out there creating unique businesses and filling a niche in this market, and I wish the folks at Millwork success, but sometimes it’s hard to get past the price of things. I found an identical door to the Santa Barbara door, which goes for nearly $1700, for $15 at my Habitat Restore. Granted, it needs a little (emphasis on little) work and maybe it’s not the same quality (though maybe it is), but it served someone’s needs for many, many decades and cost me less than 1/100th the cost of the Millwork Market.

  6. MCMDesignAddict says

    I have to echo the sentiments of others expressed here. It’s great to see new entrants in this area, and the selection is fantatsic, but the pricing seems fairly exhorbitant. I realize mid-century is hot, and that their target market is interior designers. I’ve even seen similar products at similarly inflated prices. Too bad, as I would have been an early customer at an affordable price. Maybe certain more popular styles could be made in higher volume and offered at lower prices.

  7. tammyCA says

    The decorative panels are so pretty…I’ve always loved decorative screens/dividers…they add such visual texture. One if them looks like a fun “cocktail time” design…hmm, maybe they need to make one cut out like a martini glass and olive or champagne glass and bubbles. 🙂

    It’s always nice to see a new company addressing the needs of the mid-century modern homeowner. That being said, I agree with others that the prices on the interior doors are too high, especially considering the doors are made of MDF. (Say “MDF” to my DH, and he will get out the garlic and cross to drive it from our home, like ridding the place of vampires. MDF cabinets and doors are forever associated in our minds with all the “flipped” midcentury houses we toured before finding ours.)

    Don’t know the specks on the exterior doors, and can’t really read the prices on the photo,

    The interior doors and panels are MDF because you would not be able to tool anything less than furniture grade plywood with this amount of detail without waste and splitting of the veneers (and even so, you’d get it with high grade ply). MDF provides a homogeneous substrate for tooling like this. It’s not a bad material in and of itself.

    • Mary Elizabeth says

      Well, of course, I agree that no material should be considered bad in and of itself, and you may be right that this is a good application for MDF. I just don’t have good personal experience with MDF kitchen cabinetry, bathroom vanities and medicine cabinets–anywhere where it will be exposed to moisture. And I would rather use furniture grade plywood when planning any such applications.

      • ineffablespace says

        I’ve seen vintage panels and screens of perforated wood, much of it very thin like 1/4″ lauan ply, and the problem with these is that you are cutting through layers which exposes edges of layers, which then, aren’t going to perform well against water, and there tends to be some splitting and delamination of layers over time anyway because the layers are “compromised” in some sense by all the perforations.

        This material, essentially being a “solid” provides a uniform material throughout and the edges can also be routed or rounded without further exposing any layers like you would with plywood.

        There are some companies that will create grilles like this in MDF or various wood species and the non-MDF versions come at a premium price above and beyond the rather expensive price of these. These are not inexpensive, but I don’t think the price is excessive considering the process the material goes through to create the end product.

        • Mary Elizabeth says

          Thanks for the description of the process. Delamination and compromised edges are the problem with any veneer or plywood where multiple surfaces are exposed, especially in a moist area. Have seen old Chinese and Japanese carved openwork screens that were made of a solid but thin piece of wood. Wonder what it would cost to do that today?

          Will tell DH to put away the garlic and the iron stakes and crosses. 🙂

  10. Alan says

    Designs look great, but these panels are mass produced by automated routers, not hand crafted. Price is not justifyable. Sure start up cost of a new business is expensive, but with a lower price and more volume sales, I think they would have a better business.
