A finely crafted piece of furniture can make all the difference in a fine home. For ages, people have desired fine pieces of furniture to display in their homes and that’s true as well today, as people, more and more, eschew the cookie-cutter furniture you find at big box stores for handcrafted, solid wood furniture. Having quality wood furniture has become a big design trend for 2018.
If you watch any of those design/flip shows on television then you have seen the designer commission at least one unique handcrafted piece for the home, as homeowners will always notice and appreciate a fine, well crafted item of furniture. Although in past years, design trends have sometimes favoured cheap or poorly constructed furniture, make no mistake that 2018 is the year of solid wood; people are scrambling to find skilfully crafted solid wood furniture – here’s why!
Benefits Of Solid Wood Furniture
Solid wood furniture is built to last by skilled craftsmen, and, when properly cared for, will last for decades (should it be necessary, repairs to these pieces are relatively easy). People with discriminating taste have always appreciated high-quality furniture, as it increases in value over the years, making it both a lovely addition to the home and a good investment in the future. A lot of people are also drawn to the uniqueness of solid wood furniture – interior design for people who love wood has always been about maximizing the character in your home, and solid wood furniture is a simple way to achieve that. To further boost the uniqueness factor, a craftsman can customize the furniture to fit homeowners taste and existing décor – a skilled craftsman can create pieces from maple, oak, pine as well as a number of other woods, each with their own distinct look and feel.
Finding the Right Company
When looking for the right solid wood furniture, you will want to choose a company with a long track record of customer satisfaction, as that’s the best way of guaranteeing you get what you want. If you’re in Toronto, or elsewhere in Southern Ontario, and perhaps don’t have access to a car, try finding somewhere that will deliver and install the furniture. A quality company should have a vast knowledge of the types of wood available, like pine, maple, cherry, and oak, and be able to work fluently with each. They should also provide re-finishing services. And, finally, they should offer some kind of warranty, which is something many clients appreciate, as it shows transparency. That’s a tall order, but there are companies out there that offer all this stuff – it’s just a matter of looking.
In summary, solid wood furniture has a lot going for it: it can last for centuries, if taken care of properly; it exudes beauty and uniqueness; and it is easily customizable, able to fit with any design scheme. It’s a good thing that 2018 is seeing a resurgence in popularity of solid wood furniture, because, although it’s been around for ages, sometimes you just shouldn’t mess with a good thing!
