As the consecrated heart of liturgical activity for a worship community, an altar deserves the thoughtful design consideration and craftsmanship that only artisans from the world’s top studios can provide, artisans like the ones you will find at King Richard’s.
At King Richard’s, we use time-honored design and liturgically appropriate construction to craft altars which articulate their unique role as the centering mechanism of devotion within the church, elevating their status from simply church furniture from a local cabinet shop to beautiful expressions of faith and servitude. Whether newly carved out of marble or wood or an antique masterpiece restored to its former beauty, an altar serves as a reverent focal point for the design of your sacred space. Working with our team of liturgical consultants, artisans and altar historians, your vision is refined into a graceful reality all in one turn-key operation.
To be clear, we are not cabinet makers, granite counter top installers or local architects. We are sacred art designers creating products worthy of use for worshiping God.
