Custom Furniture Denver, CO

    5 Specifications for Custom Furniture in Denver, CO:

    If you’re interested in having a custom piece of furniture made, there are a few things you need to have considered before reaching out to a bespoke furniture maker, like HW|Designs:

    1. Design qualities you’re looking for:
      Most people have a general idea of what they’re looking for when it comes to commissioning custom furniture in Denver, CO; but they may not always know how to go about describing what they want. Doing research on the style of furniture your want, and learning a little bit of the vernacular that best describes your piece is a great start. For example there is a vast difference between mid century modern and farmhouse rustic. Knowing this category can help get your designer in the right mindset before attempting a few drafts of the project. If you’re not sure what category your desired piece falls under, don’t worry! The next step is compiling a list of terms you’d like to describe the piece. For example, “clean, weather beaten, simple, textured, rigid, free flowing, soft, focal point,” these are all ways to describe the kind of reaction someone might have toward a piece, and can help create a foundation for the final design. Example images with descriptions of what you like and don’t like about a given piece can also be a great way to lay the design ground work.
    2. Functional qualities you’re looking for:
      Next, you’ll need to be able to communicate the functional needs of your custom furniture in Denver, CO. HW|Designs takes pride in desiring aesthetically pleasing pieces with strong functionality, and enjoys the challenge of modular or dual-functioning designs. Will your piece need to be easily moveable? Does it need to be reinforced for excessive weight? What is the purpose of the furniture you’d like to have made? These are all great questions to ask yourself when getting ready to reach out to a furniture designer.
    3. Budget limitations:
      This is a bit of a no-brainer, but you need to have an understanding of any budget limitations you have for this project, and be able to communicate them clearly. The maker/designer can make recommendations on lumber type and design elements that fit within that limitation. Like buying a wedding dress, you don’t want to try something on you know you can’t afford – just like you don’t want to fall in love with a custom piece you know you’ll never be able to bring home.

    1. Space information:
      This not only refers to the dimension of the space that the final furniture piece will live in, but also any aesthetic considerations the maker will need to be aware of. The beauty of custom furniture is that it can be made to fit your space exactly. A custom furniture maker will need to have a good understanding of the space before being able to design the perfect piece.
    2. Timeline requests:
      Custom, handmade, furniture takes time to create – something that should be taken into full consideration before commissioning a piece. However, HW|Designs wants to make sure any client requests on timeline are taken into consideration before signing the final commission agreement. If we can make it work, we’ll do everything we can!
