Why Handcrafted Furniture Makes A Lasting Difference

Handcrafted furniture is one of the most important investments you can make in your home. Not only is each piece unique, but the attention to detail is something to appreciate.

Furniture outlets and chain stores offer mass produced products, which are cheaply constructed. This type of furniture also lacks the specific individual tastes of the buyer and conforms to the collective market.

If you want the furniture in your home to stand out, then you should seriously consider incorporating custom made pieces to your living space. 

Let's take a look at several reasons why custom, handcrafted furniture can make a lasting difference in your life:


Specially made furniture is created with high quality materials. Only the best wood is chosen to achieve the most attractive and sturdy results.

Craftsman take pride in their work to ensure their furniture pieces are designed and constructed to the customer's exact specifications. 


A piece of handcrafted furniture is something that lasts through generations. You will find that it is sturdy, well built and essentially a legacy that is passed on over the years.

Imagine the memories that will be created around a big, solid wood table at holiday gatherings. Family members will recall special dinners seated with loved ones, laughing and sharing each others company. If the wood could talk, it sure would have a lot to say!

The bottom line is, handcrafted furniture is built to last. You will have family heirloom to pass down to the ones who helped created the memories that were made around that special table.

Environmental Factors

When you take into consideration the longevity of handcrafted, solid wood furniture, you realize that most likely it will stay with in the family and not thrown away. Factory made, mass produced furniture doesn't last and takes up massive space in our landfills. 

Chemicals are released from pressed board, paint and other materials in cheaply made furniture. These chemicals are called VOCs, which are Volatile Organic Compounds. Effects such as asthma, headaches, and even cancer have been linked with exposure to VOCs.

Each of these situations are dangerous not only to the environment, but to the consumer as well.

Support An American Family Owned Business

Most companies that offer custom, handcrafted furniture began as a small family business. Many of these businesses have grown, due to the quality of their product and craftsmanship, but still hold true to the integrity that they started out with.

What better way to support fellow Americans, than by purchasing your next piece of furniture from a reputable business in the USA?

Design Elements

You probably have an idea of what you want the room to look like after decorating is complete. 

Often, it is difficult to track down exactly what you have in mind when looking at commercial furniture stores. You may see pieces you like, but they may not have all of the characteristics you are looking for.

When working with a custom furniture company, you have the ability to design each piece to your exact desires. Whether you prefer a distressed look, two-toned style or possible extra storage, it can all become a reality.


There are many benefits of incorporating handcrafted furniture in your home. Your personal style is echoed in the pieces you choose and can be shared with generations to come.
