New year, new decade! There’s never been a better time to start fresh. If you’re anything like the majority of us and stare at your furniture, thinking how sick you are of seeing the same old sofa, the same old dining room table, the same old credenza year after year, then now is the time to make changes. You did the 2010s with that old recliner―it’s time for something new!

A re-envisioning of your home means confronting the daunting task of finding the right furniture to replace what you currently have, which is probably part of the reason you’ve procrastinated on getting new furniture in the first place. Good news! The kind folks at Furniture Fair have your back—just not in the way you might assume. This is not a pitch for Furniture Fair’s amazing deals on any kind of brand name, quality furniture you can think of, even though they have that covered.

Instead, if you’re considering new furniture, we want you to really identify with what you love about your home and yourself by allowing the professionals at Furniture Fair to help you customize furniture specific to you and your needs and aesthetics. Here are five reasons custom order furniture is the way to go in 2020.

1. Limitless Selection

Traditionally, when people think about customizable furniture, they think sofas. At Furniture Fair, you can customize far more than just sofas. Every department at all of Furniture Fair’s 11 locations offer a wide range of options. Like the size of the chair but not the color? No problem. Like the length of the dining room table but the width is all wrong? Easy. Having trouble with where to even start? Furniture Fair’s got you. Bring a photo of the room you’re looking to upgrade and let Furniture Fair’s design professionals make a suggestion. They won’t stop until they help you find the furnishings that are perfect for you and your home!

If it’s a custom brand you’re looking for, Furniture Fair has you covered there too. There are over 50 custom finishes and over 50 custom hardware choices when it comes to customizing your bedroom and dining room. From beautiful custom living room furniture by Smith Brothers of Berne to the deep comfort and quality of England Furniture Co. to the most advanced sofa technology in the world courtesy of Southern Motion, Furniture Fair has the widest selection of customizable furniture in the Tri-State area.

2. Limitless Options

There are fundamental properties that make a piece functional. For example, it would be hard to call a thing a bed frame if there were no place to put a mattress. Besides basic functionality, everything else is just details. And it is these details that Furniture Fair puts in your court. From a wide range of colors to hundreds of fabrics & leathers with different prints and feels, the look for your furniture can be as unique as you are.

But custom order furniture doesn’t stop at color and feel. You can also personalize certain features of the furnishing itself, right down to the trim or molding. Whether you want the dresser to look traditional or modern, extra cushion support for your recliner, or any one of the multiple furniture design options from all the top brands, often made right here in the US, Furniture Fair gives you the freedom of limitless options.

Furniture Fair is so into customizable options, you can even customize your delivery window! With multiple time-of-day options available, you can choose which two-hour timeframe works best for you and your busy schedule.

3. Custom Order Furniture Doesn’t Have to Be Overwhelming

The folks at Furniture Fair realize that not everyone has the time or expertise to design their own furniture. Just because you may have trouble deciding between options or lack the industry savvy to know what goes best where, doesn’t mean you don’t deserve something unique for your home. Furniture Fair’s professional design staff is here to help. They offer complimentary design consultations to assist you in picking from 1,200 different fabrics and leathers. Don’t be overwhelmed! It’s their job to narrow down the choices by asking you some qualifying questions that will get at the heart of your design aesthetic. Didn’t know you had one, did you? Well, that’s what makes the professional design staff at Furniture Fair so good! They will help you get to know you in order to make your home feel as “you” as possible.

4. Custom Order Furniture Doesn’t Have to Cost an Arm and a Leg

The word “custom” has long been synonymous with “expensive.” This doesn’t have to be the case. At Furniture Fair, they believe everyone should have the means to customize their home furnishings because there’s nothing more important than feeling comfortable in your own home, regardless of what your paycheck looks like. For example, Furniture Fair now has custom order sofas starting as low as $595. Plus, there’s no minimum order. You can custom order home furnishings for an entire house or just create the perfectly styled ottoman for that difficult corner in the living room. Either way, Furniture Fair guarantees fair prices on their custom order furniture, the same way they do with every piece of furniture they sell.

5. Custom Order Furniture Doesn’t Have to Take a Long Time

There are, of course, exceptions, but rest assured, with Furniture Fair’s resources and professional staff, your custom order won’t take a day longer than absolutely necessary.
