Are you on a tight budget? Do you have a specific space in your home you are trying to fill? Do you have a unique style? Have you shopped all over the area and haven’t found the quality furniture you are looking for? When it comes to furniture, one size doesn’t fit all! Come in and visit with Bill, owner of The Not Just Oak Place. He’ll help you design the perfect furniture piece for your home—at an affordable price. Bill has been designing and building furniture for over 40 years. He took his first wood shop class at East Junior High School in Colorado Springs when he was twelve. Bill is a great listener and will help put your ideas on paper and transfer them to your finished piece.

Our Business Started Out Of Our Home With Bill Building In Our Basement And Due To Popular Demand, We Needed A Wood Shop! -Bonnie Rhue Bill and his wife, Bonnie, started building wholesale furniture in their basement over 30 years ago. The original name of the business was B & B Design. A growing family necessitated that Bill move the wood shop from their home to another location. In 1985, Bill and Bonnie purchased their current manufacturing facility near Circle and Platte. The following year, the first retail store, Wall Units, Etc, was opened near Chelton and Platte. By 1988, the space was quickly outgrown, and the retail operation was moved to Academy and Union. Shortly after that, a second store, called The Bookcase Place, was opened next door. The two spaces were then combined and the retail store was renamed The Oak Place. Due to the growing popularity of other hardwoods, like knotty Alder, Cherry, Hickory, Walnut and Maple, the name of the retail store was recently changed to The Not Just Oak Place.

We Are So Excited To Continue Serving Colorado Springs With All Wood Types And Even The Incorporation Of Solid Surface And New Stain Colors! -Bill Rhue

The owners’ daughters, Brianna and Brittany became involved with the family business when they began starring in television ads for the retail store when it was called Wall Units, Etc. Brianna was 14 and Brittany was 11. The girls are now all grown up and have successful careers. Brianna is an optometrist in South Florida, and Brittany is a second-grade teacher in Castle Rock. Both girls regularly return to Colorado Springs to film new ads for their parents’ business.
