If you want to build the home of your dreams, then:
There are many reasons as to why you should buy custom furniture as opposed to buying already massed produced furnishing. Here we will go over some of the top reasons as to why you should invest in custom manufactured pieces.
Durability and Strength: As an example, if you take a solid wood table and place this piece of furniture on one side of the room and then put a ready-made office desk, which is going to last longer? Most of the time, it would be a custom-made piece that would last much longer because it will be made of solid wood and high-quality materials.
Style: Customized Pieces Offer a Level of Identity. At 1BENMU you can design almost anything you want when it comes to customized solid wood furniture. You can even have an entire house designed around your needs, with our millwork services! All it takes is a little conversation with our designers for you to get started
Variety of Materials: Not only can customized furniture be designed but it can also be created out of various different material. Many times when people buy their furniture at a generic furniture store they are stuck with the limited options available. If you make your own pieces, however, you have much more flexibility available to you since you can choose whatever material you want or need that’s best suited for your needs.
Perfection: Sometimes the reason why people do not buy custom-made items is that they are worried about spending too much money on something that may not come out right in the end. While it is true that custom-made products do cost more than ‘off the rack products, the sheer fact of the matter is that they are higher quality longer life expectancy.
Solid wood is a traditional material that has been used for centuries. In addition to being beautiful, it can be environmentally friendly because of its natural properties and ability to easily renew itself.
There are many reasons why people prefer furniture made from solid wood:
– Natural beauty and high quality – Over time, as the color fades and the wood becomes more weathered it adds character to furniture; this can make your house look more attractive or cozy. Solid woods such as oak or maple tend to have a uniform appearance without any blemishes. This characteristic appeals particularly to those who like polished decor as well as durability and strength.
– Ease of repair and replacement – Solid wood furniture cracks more easily than synthetic materials but this factor makes them easier to fix. Since solid wood furniture is sturdier, its pieces can be reused after they become outdated or worn out.
– Available in a wide range of styles and finishes – From traditional to modern, solid wood furniture is designed for almost any taste. It can be painted or stained to match your style and preferences. The use of veneer (thin layer) allows for an infinite variety of options because the color and texture of solid wood can be replicated by applying ready-made paper or laminate sheets. Your choice is only limited by imagination!
The cost of the furniture depends on the material you choose and the design you have in mind.

At 1BENMU we believe that craftsmanship means more than just a process of making, a way of doing, or even a reason for striving for the craft piece.
For us, it is a Spirit of Being, it is how and why we choose to stand in front of and to push forward the generation of our time.
The value of craftsmanship goes beyond that of making objects.
It is the continuum of the object and its user, seeing beyond the initial stage, remembering the nature of growth in human beings as well as in craft objects.
When craftsmanship is being seen as the spirit of being, it resonates within us a reminder that we are part of a larger story of humanity, that our efforts are communal and our spirit is long-lasting. One of the greatest contributing factors to good craftsmanship is the craftsman’s desire to do good work, the gradual accumulation of knowledge and skills, and the ever-stronger conviction that one was meant to do this one particular thing in one’s life, which requires complete dedication and self-motivation.
If craftsmanship can be seen beyond the scope of craft making, perhaps then it could escape the fate of amateurism and once again be respected and appreciated as one of our modern spirits of being.
It has been demonstrated that craftsmanship can help us reveal our identity, it reminds us of the importance of human efforts, also shapes our own values.
It is our job as woodworkers, designers, and makers to make the customers realize the time aspect of how long the tree takes to grow.
When we think about the table that we use or the chair that we sit on, we have to think about the years that it takes for this tree to mature. That is a beauty and also the value in the wood itself that we need to understand and cherish.
