Tips on Purchasing Custom Furniture for Your Home
Custom Made Furniture May be the Solution for Discriminating Toronto Homeowners
Many homeowners have likely experienced that feeling of exasperation upon heading home empty-handed after a long day of furniture shopping. Regardless of the piece/pieces being sought, these shoppers might express this feeling by telling family members, neighbours, or friends that every store seemed to carry the same inventory and/or that nobody had exactly what they wanted.
At this point, it is quite possible that the other parties might suggest custom made furniture as an option; this could in turn escalate emotions, as the homeowners may react by stating that custom made or fitted furniture is too expensive and/or that they need new furniture today and cannot wait several months until it is fully constructed.
However, putting aside these emotions and preconceptions, custom made furniture may be the ideal solution to the shopping dilemma outlined above; in fact, there can be a number of advantages to going in this direction, including:
- Uniqueness of design
- Choice of materials and colours
- Quality construction/workmanship
- Durability; long-term investment value
- Perfect fit to furnish/finish the room/space
When considering the purchase of custom made furniture, Toronto homeowners may wish to consult with the skilled designers and artisans from Carrocel fine furniture, located at 245 Bridgeland Avenue near Yorkdale Mall. Collaborating with a custom made furniture supplier like Carrocel will provide homeowners the opportunity to discuss and address critical aspects to designing and manufacturing fitted furniture, including:
- Size, shape, and style
- Type and quality of wood
- Choice and durability of fabric
- Choice of colours (fabric and finish)
- Choice and quality of any hardware
- Method of construction and assembly
- Personal preferences/family lifestyle needs
- Supplier support during and post-production
Although the initial cost might be higher for custom wood or wood-and-fabric furniture, and the wait time could be a bit longer than buying in-stock inventory, pieces that are designed and constructed by the Carrocel artisans may be an ideal solution for discriminating Toronto homeowners.

Thank you for all this information about custom furniture! One thing that really stood out to me is that you can actually choose the uniqueness of the design! My wife has been thinking about adding a little flare to her office, and I think a custom chair would really pull that off.
I didn’t think that there would be so many different reasons to order specifically custom made furniture. However, you do make some great points about having custom furniture made to match a set. For example, I could see someone really liking the look and feel of their couch and decide to have a love seat custom made to match it.
