As an Interior Decorator my clients often come to me looking for something in particular or an unusual piece but don’t have the budget to spend on designer furniture as it can be extremely expensive & they don’t want the disappointment of bulk made flat pack or replica furniture which doesn’t meet expectation.
I can always solve this dilemma with custom made furniture, made by local upholsters, joiners, cabinetmakers & fabricators.
Custom made furniture is of superior quality & can be made to your exact specifications, in the exact material, the exact colour & the exact style you desire at a reasonable price & in fair time.
The list of items an Interior Decorator can have custom made is long.
I regularly arrange all manner of ottomans, scatter cushions, lounge suites, dining tables, lamp shades, shelving & desks for clients, made by a number of Geelong’s skilled craftsman.
Custom Made Lounge Suites
A client recently had these 2 lounge suites, an occasional chair, an ottoman & coordinating scatter cushions made for her music room. Beautifully crafted by Banksia Furniture in Geelong. They are precisely what we envisioned & cost much less than brand name pieces.
Custom Made Tables
Recycled Timber Dining Tables are a beautiful but can be expensive & finding the right size to fit your space can be difficult so I prefer to have them custom made like this stunning table pictured below made by Blue Horizon Interiors in recycled timber from Timber Zoo.
Custom Made Cabinetry
My client needed something simply but impressive to anchor her living room so we had these stylish floating shelves & console pictured below custom made by Maxi Cabinets.
Custom Made Office Furniture
It can be difficult to find a readymade desk to suit an office space so I prefer to have desks custom made for my clients. This way we can tailor the design to suits their working needs. Pictured here is a custom made desk made recently for me by Maxi Cabinets it fits the space & my clients needs perfectly.
Another alternative to buying off the floor is to reupholster existing furniture to give it a fresh custom made look. Reupholstering furniture gives it a new lease of life. The original design can be preserved as with this traditional fluted chair I had recovered for a client recently by Surfcoast Upholstery or it can be tweaked to give a more contemporary look.
Custom Made Lampshades
Custom made lampshades are, a fabulous way to individualize a room & add another layer of colour or texture.
If you are interested in having furniture custom made for your home, I can advise you on the best design & enlist the right craftsman to produce what ever you need.
