The Human Element: Examining the Value of Handcrafted Furniture

Understanding the value of handcrafted furniture of requires you to simply consider the human element. In a society of mass-produced goods and a can’t-get-it-fast-enough mentality, stop and consider the creative process behind a single piece; the conceptualization, sketching, experimenting with shapes, finishes and materials, and that’s just the beginning. So much goes into the development of a product before it even becomes an option in a catalog or on the showroom floor. And from there, your own preferences come into play. The beauty of designer, handcrafted furniture is that an abundance of finishes are at your fingertips, giving you the ability to make your table, console or lamp, your own.
