Things You Should Know About Custom Furniture

Custom furniture offers you what mass produced name brand furniture can’t.

Commissioning custom furniture is a lot like having a suit custom-tailored for you rather than buying off the rack at your local retailer. The one you buy off the rack may work just fine and get the job done, but nothing can compare to the suit that fits every nook and cranny of your body just as it should. Commissioning your unique piece of furniture can be a daunting first-time process if you’ve never dealt with anything of this magnitude, so here are some things you should know about custom furniture.

  1. It may not be as expensive as you think. Custom furniture doesn’t necessarily mean it is more expensive than brand name furniture and, in some cases, it can be less expensive. Many things influence the price of a particular piece of furniture from a big fancy brand. Maybe a famous designer created it, and the furniture company has to pay royalties to said artist. Possibly it is made out of a particularly rare species of wood. Sometimes there is no explanation and businesses just get away with pricing furniture however they want. At La Bella Cosa we price our pieces of furniture as fairly as possible. We look at all of the elements that go into a piece of furniture such as size, type of wood, and technical difficulty. We don’t charge more because we are customizing something for someone. We don’t charge more because they want a beveled top on their dining table instead of a straight top. Custom details are what we specialize in.
  2. It may not take as long as you think. When you have custom furniture made, you need to have a bit of patience.  There is no same day delivery. However, we don’t think that 6-8 weeks is too long to wait for a piece of furniture that is made to your exact specifications.  Good things come to those who wait!
  3. It is built especially for you.  One of the more obvious reasons to have a piece of custom furniture is because you know that this custom furniture was made just for you. Everyone has different necessities in life.  We have clients that have us build special cabinets for their purse collections, a vanity with a hidden refrigerator to keep their makeup fresh, a console with open ends and laser cut panels, so their cats have a cozy and beautiful spot to sleep.  You name it; we’ve done it!
