Built by an industry veteran who understands your day-to-day issues.


You have a thousand and one details to keep track of in your furniture store business. You use several different programs to try to run it all, but sometimes it feels like chaos.


The hours in the day are only so many, and there aren’t always enough to get everything organized and under control before you go home.


But it doesn’t have to be that way…


Having a software system that simplifies your processes – from sales, to inventory, to payroll, to barcoding, to delivery, and everything in between – can relieve all that!


Finally, a complete package, ready-to-use that takes care of all the details of a furniture store business, so that you can focus on the important things.


Built to Make Your Life Easier and Your Business More Successful

  • Easy to use.

  • Developed for furniture store owners, not computer gurus.

  • The software leads and prompts you through every step of the process, saving you time and sparing you any frustration.

We have used Custom Design Software for 14 years now. I believe that speaks volumes as to how well the software has worked for our company. The software is very user friendly. It is obvious the software was written by someone with prior retail furniture background. I have had many a conversation with Jerry Katz, owner of CDS, over the years. I consider him an expert in the field of retail furniture software, and also a friend and business partner to help us be the best furniture store possible. Bob Erwin

  • Covers 100% of the problems and situations faced by a furniture store.

  • Built by a former furniture store owner who understands all the details of the everyday business, and developed to specifically address them.

  • We’re proud to offer you the most comprehensive point of sale software in the industry.

We “test drove” several software programs for our store and by and large Custom Design Software is the BEST! It is extremely user friendly and tailored to our business. CDS does everything from entering customer orders to tracking inventory, servicing products, creating reports, generating salespeoples’s commissions and even accounting. It is obvious this program was created by someone with furniture industry experience. We can’t imagine operating without CDS. Vickie K Caudle

Works for Everyone

  • Effective for furniture businesses of all sizes. No matter how small or large your store is, we all have the same problems! Just more or less of them.

  • The software has everything you need, no matter how big or small you are.

  • Never leave work wondering if you forgot to finish something again, since the software is completely integrated and anticipates your needs!

Custom Design Software has been an incredible help to our family business. My wife and I started our business in 1989 as a small used furniture store. Quickly we grew into a full line furniture store selling quality new goods. Our rapid expansion created a large amount of inventory and we needed a way to efficiently track it. After reviewing several different software systems that seemed very complicated we met Jerry and were introduced to Custom Design Software. Not knowing very much about technology we were in need of much help to get everything set up. Jerry walked us through everything and we were able to get the system up and running. The system has been great for our business and is now something we couldn’t imagine operating without. Randy Hoffman

Everything in One Place

  • There are so many amazing features in this software, including an Installment Financing Module that lets you set customers up on a plan from within the program.

  • We’re the only furniture store software that provides everything you need to run your business in one place.

  • Check out all the features by downloading the Free In-Depth Guide at the bottom of this page.

I have been using Custom Design Software for the past 10 years and absolutely love it! Easy to set up and easy to use on a day to day basis. But the best thing about the program is that it was designed “especially” for a Furniture Store by someone who actually “owned” a Furniture Store! Who else would know “exactly” what we need! Jerry is always readily available for any questions or problems that may arise – He actually answers his “own” phone – or calls you right back (even if he is on the road or at market). He will never ignore a call. Also, at Tree House we do our own “In-House” financing and the “Installment” module does everything that we need and more. The software has evolved throughout the years and there are always improvements coming. Janine Dorris
