Have you ever spent hours looking for the perfect coffee table for your living room or bar chairs for your restaurant only to come back home empty-handed and disappointed?

Architects who design cafés and restaurants often zero in on a theme with a color palette and decide the materials and finishes they want for the furniture. This works for homes and apartments as well, as it brings symmetry and cohesion to interiors. But, finding the right furniture that checks all the boxes could be painstakingly difficult. This is where bespoke furniture comes in.

Furniture made especially for you!


What Does Bespoke Mean

Bespoke means custom-made or made-to-measure. A bespoke item is crafted specially for you according to your requirements and specifications. For example bespoke chairs for a restaurant might be of a specific height (lower than regular), upholstered in an exquisite woven fabric chosen according to the theme of the restaurant with dark stained wood. There is no limit to customisation. You can customise one or all the characteristics of a product. Right from dimensions & material to finish and style, your options are nearly endless! But why should you choose bespoke if you can easily find ready made items? 


Why Should You Go For Bespoke

The best reason to go for bespoke is that when you choose bespoke you get exactly what you want. For example, if you want a sofa for your eatery and you have something particular in mind, you can actualize it by choosing the kind of wood, size, design, color, fabric and ornamentation! It can be daunting to go for bespoke furniture because you do not know what the end product will look like. It is always advisable to go to experts who have experience with creating custom-made items.

Any design can be made.


Here are some other reasons why you should get customised furniture : 

  • Your options are limitless. When you choose to get custom made furniture you are not restricted to the choices available in the market. You can get anything made! You can have something made in a particular budget, in a material that you love, in a fabric that you can’t find, in a design that you created in your head and/or in a size that you need.

Choose fabric, leather, wood, finish... there are so many options!


  • You can be a part of the entire process. Right from designing the piece to manufacturing, you can see the progress at every level. Furniture manufacturers who offer bespoke service send regular updates to their clients. Whether its for your home or your entrepreneurial venture, it is exciting to see the furniture items. 
  • You get something only you have. People always cherish things that are unique and rare to find. When you get bespoke furniture made you become the owner of products that no-one else has in the entire world!

Custom made furniture is as unique as it gets.


  • You get advice from professionals. Seasoned professionals are good at advising their customers, they are able to visualise the product and tell you if it would complement the space or not. They answer all your queries and questions and guide you when you are confused and need help. When you opt for a ready made product you don’t get this kind of guidance. 
  • You don’t have to compromise. When we go the market to pick something up, we rarely get what we want so we often choose whatever we like the best. When you buy bespoke furniture you don’t compromise on the designs, colors and quality.

Your furniture will be comfortable and beautiful


  • You get the best quality. Going for custom made furniture means getting the best quality you can get. You will never know that your ready made furniture is durable or not. Custom made items give you the privilege of choosing the material hence ensuring that the furniture is durable, strong and sturdy.
  • You can create the right look with it. Ready made furniture can be bought and placed in your café, but the look that can be created with custom made items will always be unmatched. An integral part of the eating out experience is the ambience. If you try to fit in ready made furniture with your decoration style, it will affect the look and hence the ambience of the restaurant. Custom made furniture gives you the flexibility and freedom to maintain the theme of the restaurant. Beautiful, comfortable chairs, lush sofas, colours that go with the theme of the place, complementing ottomans etc. create a welcoming look that makes for a pleasing restaurant experience.
