The Process And Benefits Of Buying High Quality Custom And Designer Furniture

Author : fred smith

Before furniture came off an assembly line, skilled wood workers, welders and dedicated artisans meticulously built furniture by hand. In today's society everything on the shelves including furniture is mass produced by constructed by machines. The truth is materials used today are just cheap substitutes that will almost always break down over time. While the piece may look good for the few couple years,it will eventually fall apart. Believe it or not, there was time in history when furniture pieces were proudly passed down to the next generation. It was theornate and finely constructed furniture that appreciated in value, not the inexpensively made brands found in the big box stores.

Most people think they have to settle for lesser quality furniture, but that's just not the case. There are still artisans and custom furniture companies out there that offer exquisite craftsmanship and produce beautiful original pieces that will last and gain value over time. The custom furniture process begins with locating a reputable and skilled furniture companies. Search online for local companies and ask friends and family if they know of anyone. As with most referrals, you get better quality service when you are referred by someone. During the initial consultation, you will discuss various methods of furniture creation including veneering, inlay, marquetry, carving, wood turning, and metal casting. Along with tools and skill sets, custom furniture builders have access to a large variety of luxurious woods, including Brazilian rosewood, Spanish Cedar, Honduras Mahogany, and English Yew Wood. Available resources and advance equipment allows them to produce furniture much more structurally sound and elegant than anything you would see in big box retail stores.Cutting out pictures and images in magazines will help inspire and creativity during your initial consultation with the company. Your imagination is the limit when it comes to designing that special piece. If you are enthusiast of elaborate Old World dining seating, or a 13th century French cabinet with flower embroidery, anything is possible. Once a design concept is agreed upon, the artists will begin the concept drawings. This generally takes a couple of weeks and once completed they are. Material cost of a custom piece of furniture is typically a small percentage of the cost. While the cost of custom furniture is significantly higher than retail store furniture, it has lasting benefits that generic pieces do not. Once the product is complete, it will be delivered and carefully introduced into your designated environment. By designing and crafting a one of a kind object, you will have something that will increase its value, and not the other way around.
