Custom furniture materials and techniques
Bespoke or custom furniture requires exceptional quality material and lot of knowledge about the different timber and techniques used to create furniture. The timber used by this company is bought from the local suppliers. You will definitely find English timber such as walnut, oak, elm and sycamore in their yard at an old village school in rural Warwickshire. The wood is kiln-dried after letting it dry for several years in order to stabilize the moisture content. This is a crucial part of furniture making because it helps the wood to withstand humidity, fluctuating temperatures and avoids splitting. The workshop conditions are monitored when creating a piece of furniture. This ensures that the quality of the wood is maintained throughout the process of making the furniture. The company uses modern techniques as well as traditional methods to create the bespoke furniture.
Creating custom made furniture
Creating custom made furniture provides a chance to leave your imprint on tomorrow as well as express your self. The furniture that you keep in your house tells what kind of personality, taste and style you possess. Sean Feeney is especially sensitive towards each client’s requirement. He believes that the design process is an intimate collaboration between the client and the maker. The collaboration includes developing ideas, choosing the right kind of material and looking into the finer details of the furniture. Sean spends hours with his client in order to get the right details and the exact requirement of the client. The work on a piece of furniture starts only after all the details have been worked out and the final design is chosen.
