We recently had a conversation with a friend about his search for the perfect coffee table for his home. This friend—we’ll call him Jason—is an architect by profession, so he is very familiar with home design and home furnishings. He knows what he likes, what types of pieces work well together, and how he wants his home to look.
He and his wife have been on the hunt for a coffee table for their living room for many months now. Everywhere they look—even the higher end store near where they live—seem to have the same types of coffee tables, and none of them are quite right for their home.
This is something we hear a lot from our clients. It can be difficult to find a coffee table that checks all of the boxes when it comes to style, size, type of wood, and color. There are more options online than there are in local retail stores, but if you’re someone who is particular about the quality of a piece of furniture, purchasing something online can be a bit of a dice roll. You might end up with something well made, or you could get something that looks good in the photos, but is actually poorly made and not at all what you were hoping for. Returning a piece of furniture that you purchased online can be a big hassle if it doesn’t work out (and can also be potentially expensive if you have to pay for return shipping and restocking fees).
The longer we talked, Jason was coming to the conclusion that having a custom coffee table built was really his only good option if he didn’t want to compromise on the look, size, or quality of the table.
Since Jason and his wife are both creative people with specific ideas, they are excited about being able to be instrumental in the design of their custom coffee table. They will likely send me photos and drawings of what they’re thinking and I’ll take those images and translate them into a coffee table design. Once we come up with a design they love, we’ll build it to those exact specifications.
In the end, not only will Jason and his wife get a customized coffee table, they will get a customized experience. They will also get to tell anyone who visits their home that they helped design their one-of-a-kind table.
