We sometimes can’t locate the perfect piece to complement a project or to meet a specific need and it becomes necessary to create a custom design, or adapt an existing design. A good example would be what we call C. O. M. (Customers Own Material) this means that we we can select a particular fabric from one source and have it applied to a piece of upholstery from another source. This option enables us to be very specific in our color or fabric selection perfecting and personalizing the design. Taking adaption a step further, many upholstery vendors offer options to change leg and arm styles, many finish options, and even adjusting dimensions to fit a specific space or particular body sizes creating an ergonomically correct chair assuring maximum comfort.
If adaptation cannot fill the specific need then creating a custom product is the next option, starting at the drawing board with client interaction turning a dream into reality.
