Custom furnishings in time for the holidays? It’s possible with this approach
Original Post from pigeon605.com
Let’s say you’re looking for a new sofa.
A green sofa.
When you walk into the Montgomery’s showroom, you’ll likely see a sea of sofas.
But what you won’t necessarily know is that nearly all could be green.
“Actually, most of the sofas you see on the floor are available in green,” design consultant Kayla Hathaway said. “We’d be happy to pull out some fabric samples and show you.”
At Montgomery’s, customization is incredibly common, and an expert design team is waiting to help you make it happen.
“Nearly any of our furniture can be customized,” senior interior designer Emily Meyer said. “And a lot of people don’t realize all we do. We quite literally can come to your house and then help you customize everything from flooring to drapes, curtains to bedding and, of course, furniture.”
Looking for a 19-foot dining table?
“We have the resources to do that,” Meyer said.
“We can also take old tables and have new granite or stone tops made for them, or side boards. You don’t have to give up a favorite piece just because it’s aging or you’d like it to have an updated look.”
Updating or designing a bedroom?
“There’s an incredible variety of pieces,” Meyer said. “Many of our vendors might have 10 nightstands to choose from, or you can pick the wood, the color, the knobs.”
Custom touches even extend to the finishing touches of a room.
“We can customize rugs, drapery, pillows, essentially anything you can think of,” Hathaway said.
“We really take a customer-first approach. We want your whole home to be beautiful, whether you’re shopping with us for a single lamp or a whole home renovation.”
Even better: Montgomery’s design services are complimentary.
“Don’t be afraid to talk to us,” Meyer said. “We know the questions to ask, and as we’re getting to know each other, we’ll figure out more what the customer wants. A lot of times, the customer knows what they don’t like. They might not know what they like, but people tend to know what they don’t, so then we can begin eliminating options.”
Working with a designer also helps you learn what’s possible in your home, Hathaway added. And at Montgomery’s, that often means a lot of options.
“We have all the tools we need to build and create your custom project,” she said. “We can walk through what is offered for each brand. For instance, with one fabric vendor, you can only change the color of the fabric. With another, you can change the depth, height, seat cushion construction and more.”
“We have more and more vendors utilizing those tools, so it’s very helpful because a lot of people have trouble visualizing how pieces or fabrics will look,” Meyer said.
And unlike recent years, when longer-than-average wait times made some hesitate on customization, things are getting back to normal, the designers said.
“Every brand is different, but we’re right at one to four months for most custom pieces,” Meyer said. “Before, it was generally one to two months, so things are definitely normalizing.”
Start planning now for holiday gatherings and guests. During Montgomery’s Labor Day sale, choose from a selection of sale-priced custom-order beds, sofas, sectionals and dining room tables that you can have in your home in time for Thanksgiving when you order by September 11, 2023.
