WWbeds Custom Furniture, formerly Waterful Wonderbeds, specializes in customized hand built furniture and other products. They use a customer’s drawing, sketch, or picture and turn it into the specific piece of furniture the customer is desiring. Their customer base has changed over the last decade. They now draw 75-80 percent of their customer’s from their Internet site, www.wwbeds.com. However, the business continues to operate a showroom and manufacturing shop in the North Little Rock area. WWBeds Custom Furniture uses Internet technology allowing customers to watch live video feeds of the shop and chat in real time with the craftsmen as their furniture is being built.
