4 Reasons to Choose Custom Upholstered Furniture

Having a hard time finding furniture that is just right for your space? Why not get the exact style, fabric, and finish you want? Treat yourself to custom upholstered furniture that checks all the boxes. Custom upholstered furniture is carefully designed – by you – to meet your high standards for style.

If you’re not sure that custom-upholstered furniture is the right choice for your home, here are four reasons to consider buying furniture made to your specifications.

1) You Can Personalize Your Pieces

When you choose custom-upholstered furniture, you get the exact piece you want. In addition to choosing from a plethora of colors and patterns, you can also choose the arm style, leg style, back cushion style, details such as nailheads or welt cords, and pillow fabrics and trims as well as counter or bar height stools. You choose exactly what you want, and you get exactly what you want.

You can choose to customize a chair, a sofa, or even an entire set of furniture pieces to get the perfect look for your home. By selecting this option, your chairs can contrast and compliment your sofa, so they look unified and put together.

2) Match Furniture You Already Have

You may not need or want to replace all your furniture, just a piece or two. But, finding the perfect upholstery to match or go with your existing furniture can be difficult. That's where custom upholstery comes in. You can find a pattern or color that goes with any existing pieces you have. You can liven up your interior dècor without having to replace every piece.

3) Love the Style, but Not the Color or Pattern

Often when shopping for new furniture, you find a chair, sofa, or even a headboard that is the right style, but the color or pattern doesn't match your vision or go with your interior design. By choosing custom upholstery, you won't have to keep searching for that perfect piece.

When you order custom upholstery from Natuzzi Editions, Huntington House, American Leather, and Tommy Bahama, you can choose from hundreds of fabric colors and patterns as well as a wide selection of Italian leathers. You have all the say in what your furniture looks like.

Just order it in the fabric of your choosing, even if it is something out of the ordinary, to create a focal point in whatever space you place it.

4) It's Easier Than You Think

Custom upholstery doesn't have to be a harrowing experience. While there are many choices to make, you don't have to go it alone. By choosing the Personal Design Series by Lexington, you can get precisely what you want. You can build a sectional, sofa, or chair from the ground up.

What to Consider When Choosing Upholstery Fabric

Whether you're remodeling your entire home or just refreshing the look with a few new pieces, choosing the right upholstery is key. Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing patterns:

  • Horizontal stripes will make your space look longer, and vertical stripes will make it look higher.
  • Small patterns will make a space look bigger and bold patterns can make it look smaller.
  • Durable fabrics like leather work well in a space that gets a lot of use.
  • Consider solids for big pieces like sofas and prints on smaller pieces.

Choosing the right upholstery is always a balance between form and function. A mindful custom upholstery choice will lead to a piece of furniture that you will love for years to come.
