Why Choose Custom Made Armchairs?


The main appeal of a custom made armchair is its ability to be personalized. You can choose everything from the frame material and arm style to the upholstery fabric and cushion fill. This customization ensures the chair not only fits your space perfectly but also reflects your personal style.

Ergonomic Comfort

Custom armchairs can be designed with ergonomics in mind, tailored to your body's dimensions and comfort preferences. This means the chair can support your back, neck, and arms correctly, reducing the risk of discomfort or strain during prolonged use.

Quality and Craftsmanship

Custom furniture is typically crafted by skilled artisans using high-quality materials and techniques. This focus on quality results in a piece that’s not only beautiful but durable and long-lasting.

Unique Design

With a custom armchair, you have the opportunity to create a piece that’s truly one of a kind. This uniqueness adds character and a personal touch to your home decor, making your space distinctly yours.

Considerations for Designing Your Custom Armchair

Assessing Your Needs

Before customizing an armchair, consider how and where you’ll use it. Will it be a focal point in your living room, or is it for a quiet corner of your bedroom? Understanding its purpose will guide your choices in size, style, and materials.

Choosing the Right Materials

  • Frame: Wood, metal, and even reinforced plastics are common options, each offering different aesthetic and structural benefits.
  • Upholstery: Choose from fabrics like leather, cotton, velvet, or synthetics. Consider factors like durability, ease of cleaning, and style.
  • Cushioning: Options include foam, down, or hybrids. Your choice affects the firmness and comfort of the armchair.

Style and Aesthetics

The design of your armchair should complement your existing decor. Whether you’re drawn to modern, minimalist designs, classic elegance, or something eclectic, the chair should harmonize with your room's overall theme.

Working with a Designer or Craftsman

Collaborating with a skilled designer or craftsman can help bring your vision to life. They can offer advice on what materials and designs will best meet your needs and fit your style.

  • Local Artisans: Check out local furniture makers who specialize in custom pieces. They often offer the advantage of personal interaction throughout the design process.
  • Design Studios: Many design studios offer custom furniture services and can help you design a piece from scratch.
