“For 20 years Rich’s artwork and furniture have turned wherever I’ve lived into home. My daughter’s early childhood was enchanted by Pooh Corner, and if you saw it, you’d be smitten too. Rolling hills, beloved characters and the coolest hollow tree playhouse imaginable.

Today, when I smoke a cigar from my turn of the century icebox humidor and put my feet up on my coffee table constructed from 200 year old reclaimed hardwood, I’ll take a moment to appreciate the character and joy Rich’s work has brought to my life.”

“I am very impressed with Rich and his abilities. We sat a talked about what I needed in my conference rooms. His ability to translate our conversation was phenomenal. He reconstructed and matched some floor molding, created a 120 inch hutch style cabinet, a bench and a very beautiful reclaimed wooden sign. Whenever we entertain a new client – they always seem to gravitate towards his work and give us a compliment. We have great pride of ownership.

Thank you Rich”

“We entrusted Rich to dream, draw, and build Clark’s Clubhouse at Wrigley Field for one of our biggest clients – The Chicago Cubs. On a tight budget and even tighter timeline, Rich exceeded all of our expectations in every facet, every step of the way. The clients were thrilled, and it would have NEVER happened without Rich.”

“I met Rich thru a mutual friend and we started talking about creating a backdrop made from found barn wood for a metal sign. He showed us photos of his work which were simply beautiful! We then engaged him to make a cabinet/shelving unit for our conference room which exceeded all expectations. The piece transformed the room! We routinely get compliments about both pieces.

Can’t wait to engage him on a coffee table for our home!”

 

Brian Lignelli

“Rich is incredibly gifted, a pros’ pro.  He possesses the unique skill set of both a Master Carpenter and Artist.  He captured our vision, as well as enhanced it with his recommendations, in producing several special heirlooms for our family.  I would confidently recommend Rich to anyone.”

“Trust, dependability, commitment and a job well done” is how I describe what my experience has been with Rich Homburger. There is a lot of value add to the work he does. He not only knows how to do the things we need, but he understands what we are trying to do and brings his artistry and knowledge together to and that has served us well.”

 

Matt Roemer

“I highly recommend Rich and Murals and so much more for any project big or small. Rich has completed a wide range of projects for me, from beautiful interior custom built-ins to outdoor all-weather living spaces and furniture, just to name a few examples (many of which you can see on this site). His attention to detail, ability to add that ‘special touch’ to any project, and always completing the work on time and on budget are just a few reasons to consider him for your next project. Rich’s unique combination of skill and talent are truly hard to find. I’m confident once you hire him on one project, you will bring him back again and again.”

 

Rick Stearns

“Rich built a beautiful custom made coffee table for our home.  It is the centerpiece of our living room and receives applause from everyone who enters our house. The style and appearance is better than we had imagined.  It is incredible to see a concept come beautifully to life.”

 

Barry McGuire

“Besides his vast knowledge and appreciation of the South American 3-toed sloth, and incredibly discerning taste for Scotch Whiskey, Rich Homburger’s affinity for finding the beauty in nature and bringing it forth through his custom carpentry cements Murals And So Much More as a creative power house. Working with Rich to design and craft a custom, hand made storage bench for the bedroom, I was happy to be an integral part of the concepting and design from the get go. Rich never led me astray, and continually updated me throughout the building process. The end result was an incredible piece that transformed raw wood into art, and will become something enjoyed by the family for generations to come.”

“In the immortal words of Mr. Thomas Jefferson: Rich is a total bad ass.  Enough said.”

Maryilene Blondell

“Rich Homburger is an extraordinary artisan, carpenter, artist, worker and an outstanding man to do business with.  Rich was roped into a project that he knew nothing about, had a ridiculously short window of completion and had many complicated moving parts.  From the first plenary phone call Rich took charge and made things happen, not only smoothly, but beautifully executed.

His finished product of 15 – 8 foot wooden easels for a high visibility project for Daley Plaza exceeded any and all expectations The ALS Association Greater Chapter had. There was no request to big (or small) that Rich did not make happen with skilled precision.

I would highly, strongly, enthusiastically recommend Rich for any job.  In a world where the true consummate artisan and expert professional is almost a thing of the past, working with Rich was a welcome gift.”

 

David Whitford

“Rich is a true artisan. He is passionate about his work and his attention to detail makes him a true craftsman. He is knowledgable, reliable and delivers a quality product on time as committed and within budget.”
