3 Reasons To Thoughtfully Consider Custom Furniture And Upholstery


Custom Furniture Upholstery

How many times have you seen the same sofa or coffee table on Instagram or Facebook in different homes? How many times have you noticed the same decor in the homes of your friends? Many retailers sell furniture and home decor that appeal to the masses…and the masses always buy. Two issues arise from this: Everyone’s house ends up looking the same, and in five years, everyone’s house will be outdated.

1. Personalised Handboards

Start with the details that matter, the ones that provide both style and function, when customizing your home. This usually includes the headboard and footboard. While upholstered bedroom furniture is widely available, the designs and fabric options are often the same. Request custom upholstery to make yours unique and to ensure that it blends in with the rest of your decor and furniture. While completing your bedroom design, we’ll work with you to select the perfect fabric that meets your needs (stain resistance, durability, luxury, and so on).

2. Pieces Made By Hand

Handcrafted furniture will always add an elevated presence to your home, whether it’s ultra-modern, minimal, or farmhouse-traditional. Custom wood furniture lasts a lifetime, can be passed down to the next generation and can be reupholstered as the times change. 

3. Details Are Important In The Design 

Custom craftsmanship provides design details, character, uniqueness, and longevity that mass-produced items simply cannot. Your home doesn’t have to look like it was furnished by an assembly line, but by artisans who care about their craft and care about your home. From adding studs, curves, and unique upholstery patterns to your custom sofa to creating something new out of a much-loved antique or flea market find, your home doesn’t have to look like it was furnished by an assembly line but by artisans who care about their craft and care about your home.

Craftsmanship Is An Art

Every piece is handcrafted in North Carolina, ensuring the expert craftsmanship you’ve come to expect from Bassett Furniture. Our frames are made of laminated hardwoods that interlock. Our trimming is done by hand. We use a high-density foam that lasts longer and looks plusher. We’ve been crafting furniture with meticulous attention to detail and a commitment to high-quality materials for over a century. We make sure each element is worthy of your home, from the coils you’ll never see to the hand-sewn trim.

We do not advise attempting to design a piece of furniture from scratch. With furniture design, there are many different dimensions and stylistic features to consider, which can be very difficult for people who are doing it for the first time. However, we recommend that you find something as close to what you are looking for as possible. So, look for pieces of furniture similar to your dream piece online or in a showroom. Prioritize pieces that are stylistically similar to what you were looking for and only require minor alterations in size. Because the details define an upholstered piece’s style, it will be easier to recreate that style if you can find something that already has the majority of the details down pat.
