The Design World Evolves: Custom Furniture and Functional Art
By: Nancy Cameron at www.NancyCameronDesign.com
The ever-changing, evolving world of interior design is a very exciting place to be. Gone are the days when you simply walked into a store and purchased the sofa or chair that was displayed on the floor. There were no options, no frills, nothing special. You either liked the piece as presented, or you didn’t.
In today’s world, the choices are infinite. You now have the ability to transform your home to reflect you and your personal taste and style. Customization is key!
When you begin the exciting chapter of building a home, updating your existing home, or remodeling a home you’ve just purchased, you may want to start by hiring a professional. Find an interior designer that not only shares your vision and you find a connection with, but most importantly, has the ability to design and create one-of-a-kind pieces for you and your home.
As you collaborate with your designer and your style begins to emerge, think of the possibilities. For instance, if you can’t find a sofa that is just the right size and style you’re looking for, it’s not a problem. With customization you can adjust the length, width, depth, seat and pillow fills, change the legs and arms, and of course, select your own fabrics. Customization is really the ultimate solution to obtaining the pieces perfect for your unique space.
Let’s take it a step further with functional art! The beauty of owning functional art is that once it’s been created and produced, you literally live surrounded by art. Functional art performs as it is intended yet also enhances your home with original artwork. The fun possibilities are endless. Imagine inventive stair railings, three-dimensional wall art that could function as doors that conceal unattractive but necessary storage, artistic tables, inspired lamps, visionary chairs, and everything in between. Wow!
Design, create, customize, and enjoy the journey! Not only will you enjoy the creative process, you can feel gratified knowing that the end result showcased in your home will be uniquely you!
