Custom Can Balance Trends and Timelessness

You don’t need an interior designer to buy custom furniture, you can actually do it on your own. Many stores like Sherrill Furniture have experts who will work with you on buying the perfect custom piece.

Inspiration Can Come From Anywhere

Getting inspiration for design and color can come from experiences or vacations or anywhere. Designers can tell you that some of their clients have gotten inspiration for a sofa from their favorite movie.

“A great benefit is that the design inspiration does not have to start with the piece. We can be inspired by wallpaper, art, or travel,” says DuVäl Reynolds of DuVäl Design. “Customization grants the freedom to select textures and colors that enhance our inspiration.”

“Instinctively, we rush to view all options,” he says. “Instead, opt for colors and tones that align with the design, rather than solely basing it on personal preferences. And consider taking calculated risks with only one or two elements of the custom item—not every piece should be overly prominent.”

Custom Covers a Lot of Ground

“A drawing or sketch with the customization details avoids mistakes,” Neal says. “Also, understand the parameters from the supplier, because there is custom and then semi-custom: You may be able to change the finish, but not the size.”

You want to envision what the whole piece will look like first, then work on the cover. Working with a store such as Sherrill Furniture who has a Design Your Own Custom Program will help you choose the frame shape, dimensions, and fabric of your ideal seating to smaller details like seam stitching, arm style, and leg shape.

Custom Can Be a Real Problem-Solver

Let’s say you choose a piece and design a room around it and when you go to purchase, you find out it has been discontinued or indefinitely delayed. If you work with a custom piece then this will not be a problem. “With constraints, or the need to fill a larger room, a custom piece may make most sense,” says Reynolds.

Custom Can Balance Trends and Timelessness

If you have a space in your home that is filled with heirlooms, then adding a new piece to the mix can look out of place. If you design a custom piece, you can make it blend with the older pieces. “In a current project, I specified a case-good piece from the Sherrill Occasional line, and we’re having a hand-applied striping decoration added, so it feels as aged and collected as an antique piece in the same space,” Sherrell Neal of Sherrell Design Studio says.

Finishes Can Make New Feel Heirloom

“I have a soft spot for the Mr. & Mrs. Howard line, and specified the Bambu bed for a project,” she says. “We chose a rich brown wood finish called Modern Walnut, designed to live between two chests in a Seaglass finish that are also from the line.”

“I really love the Sherrill family of brands, and how each one offers something distinctive in either style or customization,” Neal says. “With the array of finishes and customization options on offer, each project can be well-tailored but unique.”
