Custom Furniture and Creating a Timeless Piece

Custom furniture offers a great way to bring out your personal sense of style in your home. Creating a custom timeless piece takes into account several design choices. In today’s blog from Ellecor Interior Design, we explain how to achieve a timeless look.

Defining Timeless

Timeless furniture fits into almost any decorating plan. These pieces work well no matter the style of the rest of the room, and they buck trends. Timeless custom furniture doesn’t necessarily mean traditional or vintage items such as Victorian hutches or Georgian-style lazy Susans. Whether it’s a vintage or modern design, timeless furniture will remain stylish and relevant for generations to come.

Sturdy Materials

When you think of timeless pieces, your custom furniture must be made to last. Wood is a common durable material, but metal, stone, brick, wool, and leather also last a long time. You can create timeless furniture with other materials, such as cloth, glass, or plastic. However, you might need to take extra care of them.    

Flexible Design

Interior design trends come and go, and they often have bold colors and different lines. If you go with trendy custom furniture, it may be in vogue for only a couple of years. You could feel remorse a decade from now. Timeless furniture is flexible enough to work today, tomorrow, and a century from now. Consider neutral colors, clean lines, and furniture that blends well into any style of room.

Proportionately Pleasing

When the proportions of things are correct, they are automatically pleasing to the eye and symmetrical. Scientists refer to this as the Golden Ratio, and it was discovered in Ancient Greek times. The Golden Ratio is found in nature, such as conch shells, flower petals, human faces, and even the shape of hurricanes. Timeless custom furniture is the same way. These items feel naturally beautiful, making you smile and relax as you appreciate the timeless style.

Classic Style

There are already plenty of classic styles that have withstood the test of time. Look to Greek columns, grandfather clocks, Louis mirrors, and botanical patterns, among others. You could have a wooden table with Greek columns for legs and carved leaves as embellishments on custom furniture. A deep, rich stain brings out the natural beauty of the material and protects the wood.
