Why Choose Bespoke Furniture?
"The quality far surpasses any piece bought on the high street"
When deciding how to furnish your home, there are several vital factors to take into consideration. Whilst it may seem like a simple solution to visit one of the many furniture superstores that reside on the edge of most towns, these warehouses are naturally unable to offer a service that’s tailored to the needs of your home and vision. So why choose a bespoke furniture maker over a mass producer? Aside from the obvious benefit of an intimate service, there are other reasons to avoid the crowd and make it personal.
Choosing a furniture artisan gives you total control over your investment – you get exactly what you want with no unnecessary extras. The freedom to choose your own materials, design and finish can transform the feel and look of your home. As the process of creating your piece continues, you can refine and adapt your design to achieve the perfect combination of aesthetic and functionality. The intimacy of the professional relationship between you and your artisan can also provide the ability to match your overall interior design scheme with ease.
Ease of installation is another benefit of avoiding off-the-shelf goods. Forget spending frustrating afternoons assembling a sub-par wardrobe and find yourself a professional who will take the hassle out of designing a room and provide you with a perfectly finished item. Naturally, you can also maximise space in any room by ensuring that your products are customized to avoid any size mismatching.
By choosing bespoke furniture you are also providing an enormous service to local businesspeople. When you make the decision to commission a piece from a skilled cabinet maker, your money benefits local people rather than huge retail chains. Of course, this also means that the design and craftsmanship involved in the items you buy will be of a considerably higher standard.
Don’t take our word for it though, ask the experts. Chris from The Real Wood Furniture Company in Woodstock said: “The beauty of commissioning a bespoke piece of furniture is that clients can really get involved in defining the specification of their furniture, helping to create unique and beautiful pieces, styled and sized to suit particular spaces.”
Robin Furlong, an experienced furniture artisan from Gloucestershire, added:
“Commissioning bespoke furniture is a fascinating and exciting collaboration between client and designer,
resulting in a beautiful and truly unique object, to admire and appreciate daily. The quality far surpasses any piece bought on the high street and there is great satisfaction in knowing you were central to the inception and creation of a purposeful work of art.’’
With all these advantages, plus the knowledge that your furnishings are unique and exclusive to your home, why bother with the mass-produced furniture warehouses? If you’re looking to design or redesign your home, make sure you get a bespoke service.
