It may be part of a whole furnishing scheme or just a single item but an individually designed and manufactured piece can make all the difference to a home. A distinctive headboard designed just for you or a treasured chair re upholstered in just the right fabric or a chest of drawers designed to fit a space or a scheme exactly... None of these need be unaffordable but can add huge value to the overall appearance of a room.
Bespoke furniture is the key to any individual scheme. It can be fitted or loose furniture, seating, window dressings, carpets, rugs... in fact almost anything you can think of which makes up an interior design.
I have accounts with all the main fabric suppliers and covering a wide range of prices with upholstery fabrics between £10 per metre and hundreds of pounds. The upholsterers and curtain makers I use are experienced and tried and tested professionals as are the cabinet makers who craft wood in to wonderful practical furniture from wardrobes and kitchens to bars and living room furniture.
Whatever we are making for you your valued input will be important. For example, If you require upholstered seating I will show you where in the room we will plot the size of the seating and discuss with you the shape (straight, L shape, U shape??) the style (contemporary, traditional, boxy, chesterfield, knoll, etc??) then I will discuss with you the height of the back, the seat and the arms, the shape of the arms, the type of filling and fixed or loose or scatter backs? What about movement? Legs? Gliders? Castors? Do you want a skirt bottom? Fringing? Piping? So many more things to consider before we even select a fabric. I have a few tricks with seating which I will share with you…you will be amazed how much there is to think about just having a bespoke settee made for you and the best bit?... it shouldn’t cost you any more than a similar non bespoke settee!
If you love the furniture you have now and it suits the room maybe its just a case of refilling the cushions and recovering it? And it doesn't mean only seating, ottomans and headboards can be upholstered. I have had chests of drawers upholstered in leather or fabrics, console tables covered in faux snakeskin, cabinets mirrored on all sides and a good quality piece of wood furniture can take on a whole new life just by being lacquered in a new solid colour.
What if you cant find the exact size and style of coffee table you need? Lets have one made for you. Factory finish spray painted? Veneered? Glass?... here we go again!
Bespoke furniture is so often the solution to a scheme especially where scale and proportion are integral to the look of the room.
