Buying a custom sofa is an exciting venture with many benefits. It is almost a rite of passage into adulthood — no more hand-me-downs or discount pieces that are not built to last. It is actually an investment because when you purchase a piece of furniture that you love, that you have a hand in designing, and that is made of high-quality materials, you are going to have it for a long time to come.
If you are considering buying a new sofa, like an Elite Sofa made in BC, but are still on the fence, read on. These are just a few of the reasons why a custom sofa is a way to go.
Reasons For Buying Custom Sofa
As we get older, we develop our tastes and design aesthetic. This naturally evolves over time, but the foundation usually remains the same. A custom sofa gives you the opportunity to bring your vision to life so that this major piece of furniture fits in or perfectly complements your design style. At Elite Sofa, for example, there are base models to choose to can use as a starting point, while you find the perfect material, accents, and size that is perfect for your needs. There is no reason to compromise!
1. The Right Fit
Often when we are shopping for pre-made furniture, something has to give — either it’s not exactly the right shape, size, or style. Custom made furniture like Elite Sofas are measured exactly to fit the space you want to furnish. The length, depth, and height are all adjustable, as is the shape. You can choose if you want a sectional extension on the left or right side and how long you want it. It’s kind of the Goldilocks principle: not too big, not too small, but just the right fit.
Everyone has a different idea of what is comfortable. Some people love a good overstuffed sofa that’s great for sinking in to, while others like something stiff that’s good for sitting upright. In addition to the size and shape of your custom sofa, you also get to choose the filling and density of it. Want an eco-friendly option? That’s available, too.
3. A New Appreciation
Instead of choosing something off the showroom floor or finding a piece that is mass-manufactured, going through the step-by-step process of furniture making can really open your eyes. It might give you a whole new appreciation for the furniture that supports you and your family day after day and asks for nothing in return. The frame, suspension, cushioning, and upholstery are all elements that require master craftspeople, a lot of skilled hands and generations of knowledge go into the pieces. A custom made sofa, with high-quality materials in a place like British Columbia means that it is built to last.
So many of our consumer choices are made out of convenience and cost-savings, but some things are worth spending a little extra time, energy, and money on. One of those things is the furniture we have in our home so that it can be enjoyed and appreciated for a long time to come.
