The Impact of Custom Furniture

Creating a unique space in your home can be easier than you think. Everyone wants their own space to come home to that creates comfort and reflects their personality. It really are those personal touches that set your home aside from the home next door. One of the easiest ways to be unique in your decor is custom furniture.

You don't want to be one of those people that has the same Ikea furniture as the person down the street. Like the "Lack Table" that everyone has 50 of. We know we all love Ikea but furniture should be an investment. 

Custom furniture gives you the option to mix and match different styles, textures and patterns. You can walk into a showroom and find a piece that is already your dream piece of furniture, but it is even more personal to be able to pick what YOU want. It is YOUR investment after all. Customizing fabrics, welts, and backing can be an amazing way to make your furniture truly yours. 

Contrary to what people believe, you don't want your furniture to be a "matchy matchy" set. Picture a plain black sofa, with a matching black chair, and coordinating black ottoman. Yes it is simple, but you can guarantee your neighbour has the same set. Now imagine a textured grey sofa, with white welting and uniquely formed arms. Pairing it with a bold patterned set of lounge chairs that pull in threads of that same grey but also other colours. Throwing on custom fabric toss cushions pulling the full scheme together.

Furniture does not always have to match. The pieces just need to compliment each other and have similiar attributes. THAT is how you create a truly unique space. Personalized just to you. Sounds more worth that investment now doesn't it?

That is what we specialize in at A Room In Mind. Truly unique spaces with creative pieces.
