What types of material should I use to create custom furniture?

Custom furniture can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, metal, glass, and upholstery. The choice of material will depend on the design of the piece, the intended use, and the personal preferences of the customer.

Wood is a popular choice for custom furniture because it is strong, durable, and can be shaped and finished in a variety of ways. Different types of wood can be used, including hardwoods like oak, maple, and cherry, and softwoods like pine and cedar.

Metal is another common material used in custom furniture. It can be used to create sleek, modern pieces, or to add decorative accents to wood furniture. Metal can be finished in a variety of ways, including powder coating, painting, or plating.

Glass is often used in custom furniture to create a modern, minimalist look. It can be used as a tabletop or as a structural element in a piece of furniture.

Upholstery is used to cover and cushion seats and backs on furniture. Fabric, leather, and PU (synthetic leather) are all commonly used materials for upholstery.

Other materials that may be used in custom furniture include plastic, stone, and decorative epoxy tables. The choice of material will depend on the design and function of the piece, as well as the personal preferences of the customer.
