Custom furniture: Worth the cost?
If you’re struggling to find the perfect furniture to fit the space or design of your San Francisco apartment, it may have crossed your mind that rather than trekking around all the furniture stores in your community, looking for that perfect sofa, table or bed that does not exist, perhaps you could just have somebody make your dream item for you.
Custom furniture has historically been a luxury reserved for the uber wealthy, but recently it has become more common for everyday folks like you and I to be able to commission our very own, one-of-a-kind, perfect fit piece of furniture.
Streamlining of the production process, high volume sales and the convenience of online marketing have made it easier for companies like BuildASofa, which sells custom couches made to your specifications, to function and thrive. Custom sizing, custom colors and patterns, custom sections and leg options are among the customizations offered.
You’ll pay more than you would if you picked up your new couch at Costco or your local furniture dealer, but you’ll also get exactly what you want and can have it shipped nationwide. Sometimes, after getting super frustrated during a furniture search, it may seem smart to pay premium just so you can get exactly what you want.
Of course, craftsmen who make custom pieces from start to finish, especially those focusing on wood, will tell you that they cannot create a truly one of a kind piece (that’s artistic as well as functional) without a high price point and a long lead time. If you are ready to venture toward the realm of the truly upscale, designed to your own specifications, try a made-to-your-sketch furniture designer like Custom Furniture Design.
