Bespoke furniture denotes customized furniture which has been specifically designed and made with a high degree of participation from the end-user in order to accurately depict their needs and taste.
You can basically have every conceivable piece of furniture to be made by bespoke: from dining room tables with matching chairs, built-in wardrobes, fitted shelves, custom wardrobes, bed posts, bed frames, head boards and foot boards, living room sets, entertainment centres,wine racks, built-in counters, kitchen table tops, you name it and it can definitely be made by bespoke.
One of the advantages of having bespoke furniture aside from its high degree of customization is that you can basically choose from among a variety of high-quality hard woods such as oak, ash, elm, and many more. The quality of the wood that they are made from and the level of craftsmanship that this bespoke furniture is made with, will actually make their value rise over time thereby making them very worthwhile investments for their owners. You may even pass them on to the next generations as heirlooms if you take very good care of them.
You can have them in exactly the size you want so that they will fit in perfectly in the room or in the area that you intended for them because there is no one-size-fits-all concept when it comes to bespoke furniture.
As for the designs, the sky is the limit with bespoke furniture and it will be left entirely up to the whims and preference of the end-user. They can go for the intricate antique type, or practical contemporary, or even go for some futuristic touches in there. What is certain is that this furniture will definitely last a very long time and they will be one of a kind and especially made for you.
Expert craftsmen will be making this bespoke furniture so you can be sure that you will be buying something that is of high quality. You can design them in such a way that they will match your existing decors, or you could also choose to have them stand out and act as your centrepiece in a specific location of the house.
There is also this new trend with bespoke furniture which is the provision for multiple panelling so that you can just ask your craftsman to change the panels if you want a new look. Ask them to come in and change the panel and voila! You will have furniture that may look like new but is actually the same one albeit with a different panel.
While they may be initially a little bit more expensive than your usual ready-made furniture on display in most shops, but the investment will surely be worth it as they are made from high quality materials and are made with intricate craftsmanship which virtually makes them functional art works with the capability to rise in value over time.
So, if you are looking for that perfect gift for yourself or for a special someone, go for something that is timeless and truly made with your own input and stamp on it. Go for bespoke furniture now!
