Bespoke wooden furniture goes beyond your ordinary chairs and tables with custom made furniture that is crafted to fit your requirements. It is designed for exactly what you need, where you need it and how you want it. Many dismiss this type of furniture due to the initial extra expense, however, below are reasons you will get beyond a return on investment on the initial cost.
1. Unique and Personalised
Think about the furniture you currently own- do you see it and get a sense of sentimentality? Bespoke wooden furniture can provide that exact feeling, with each item created being completely unique to you and your requirements. From the start, you are in the driving seat and have complete say over pricing, materials, sizing, etc., Not only this, but the standout uniqueness of your furniture makes it a strong heirloom to be passed down through future generations.
Bespoke furniture can also be a truly unique gift for a special occasion that can be cherished for years to come. How often can you buy a gift and be 100% certain it will be seen and enjoyed every single day? As furniture can act as the cherry on top to interior design, gifting something truly unique that reflects your loved ones’ unique style is unmatched.
2. Long-term Investment
It may be true that the initial price of bespoke wooden furniture is higher than the mass-produced items in your local furniture retailer, however the longevity of bespoke wooden furniture speaks for itself with the value added beyond the initial price tag. From the get-go, the quality of both the craftmanship and materials is unmatched, with the sustainably sourced being more durable and producing a timeless design.
Being in control of all aspects of the process removes the element of risk from making the long-term investment. Not only do you have say over all stages but also you can see who is crafting it, including their past work so you can have full confidence in the quality you will receive.
3. Environmentally Friendly
Contrary to the ordinary, mass-manufactured furniture you find in mainstream outlets, bespoke wooden furniture is significantly better for the environment. Bespoke is typically made with sustainably sourced wood, whereby the trees can be replanted with minimal environmental implications. Additionally, as all items are individually crafted by furniture makers, there is far less water, energy and material wastage that is a typical biproduct of mass production methods.
The Forest Stewardship Council certifications are a great way to check the legitimacy of sustainability claims for bespoke wooden furniture. They are an international organisation that promote responsible management of the world’s forests via timber certifications and can therefore act as a strong benchmark for sustainable suppliers.
