About us

Little Wooden Penguin is owned and operated by Katie Dunn and Taylor Witt.

Little Wooden Penguin is a boutique custom furniture design firm in North Texas that believes in bringing the most beautiful, versatile, handcrafted furniture to their customers.

We believe that everyone should surround themselves with pieces that represent them, pieces that have a story behind it and that they have a preference about. Pieces that they choose to own for themselves and pass on to their children. 

Our clients will never forget designing their own custom farmhouse table for their first home, or in preparation for their child's first birthday. We offer our clients something of true value that is going to last a lifetime and is artful and beautiful to look at.



In 2015, Taylor, a Director of Photography & Katie, a Television Producer, decided to take everything they learned from working on lifestyle programming like HGTV & Food Network and embarked on a journey into the custom furniture world. Their goal: to create incredible handcrafted wood and metal decor for their generation.

While experimenting with new designs, it was their customers who actually guided them towards the business they are in today. “Wait, you’re telling me I can get that espresso top with a gray base 2 inches wider for the same price?” What Katie and Taylor didn’t realize is that NO ONE was making the quality of furniture Taylor was crafting with the ability to customize every piece of it at the price point they are offering. So their focus changed from just building table sets their customers could buy to building personalized items.

Not only that, Taylor and Katie managed to crack the code on the most significant hidden charge that comes with buying a new table, the chairs! Solid wood chairs, when purchased brand new, can sometimes cost as much if not more than the table. But with the Little Wooden Penguin system, they are able to locate the perfect chairs for a table set at only a fraction of the price for the same quality, giving their customers the ability to truly customize every feature of the set to match the decor of their home.

Since then every table set has felt so different—and the options they are offering their customers are like nothing out there right now. After almost two years of perfecting their art, they now have a product line that is truly customizable, versatile and will last for years to come. For anyone who believes that millennials aren’t interested in quality or putting down roots, tell them to talk to the Little Wooden Penguin clientele. We have designed and built over 100 different creations for an audience that is over 50% millennial, proving we are indeed a brand this generation can get behind.

In 2017 they took Little Wooden Penguin from a side business to a full-time venture. Each table is handcrafted with intention, every piece of wood is hand selected with care, and the result is a beautiful, statement piece that anchors the design of a home. Together, Taylor and Katie have built a brand that is dedicated to helping people create their new favorite space within their home.

As Little Wooden Penguin team continuously researches new trends and materials, striving to deliver only the highest quality products that their customers can count on—now and into the future.


What are people saying? 

"I ordered a coffee table, and it is perfect. The shop's owner worked with me to customize the color I wanted. They were extremely helpful, quick to respond and accommodating. As a small business owner myself, I appreciated their willingness to specialize their products and help me. The table is perfect and well worth the money!!!" 

- Melanie Amoss, on the Rustic Chic Coffee Table

"I had a unique need, and Little Wooden Penguin really came through! We wanted a small table to put in a niche in our entry way, but I had specific parameters regarding size (not only the table top size, but height as well.) 

I provided them with rough dimensions and gave them the freedom to be creative after we discussed colors and wood types. The result is a perfectly sized, functional piece that really adds a pop of color to the entry and serves as a conversation piece for guests visiting our home. I love the beautiful cypress top and the painted legs. A great surprise was the small shelf for the bottom: perfect spot for some stacked books. Best part: it was a gift for my husband. LWP finished up on time and he loved it!" 

-Margaret Starnes, on the Rustic "X" Side Table 

"We love it! It was my daughters 6th birthday with family and I have mentioned your name a few times tonight as onlookers loved the tables :) And I love the legs as they did make it easy to adjust with our table that is half off and half on the edge of a rug. GREAT marketing point! The lower shelf is where we place our magazines and is such a nice option. I'm glad you could accommodate!"
-Return Customer, on a customized Industrial Side Table

This was an absolutely STUNNING piece. Shipping was fast and reasonable! I will definitely be ordering from this shop again!!!
