Side Table Which is As Unique, As You…

natural-marble-top-1In the day and age of Home Goods and Wayfair, how can today’s homeowners set their spaces apart from millions of others? The way people furnish their home is often viewed as a reflection of  their personality, therefore it is very important that the spaces are well furnished and express each homeowner’s personal style.

For that very reason the demand from homeowners to create and design furniture is increasing. Customers no longer want to feel that they have to settle for “almost”.  With custom made pieces they don’t have to say “…if only it were a bit larger or a bit smaller”, “…if only it came in a different finish, different color, different stone”, “…if only it matched my color scheme better”……

natural-marble-top-2Consumers today, while eager to differentiate their spaces from others, are cost and time conscious. That’s why we believe that adding just a few custom designed pieces to a room can make a world of difference without the high cost or long layover time. Our custom made stone top tables are designed to do just that.  Our tables come in various sizes: coffee tables range from 30” to 36” in diameter; side and end tables range from 15” to 20”. We also make console and sofa tables. We use high quality marble, granite, slate, or natural quartz that come in 1.25” thickness for our table tops. The colors and and grains can be chosen from dozens of options, and therefore can be easily matched to any color scheme.

preparing-the-top-marble However, customizing furniture can present its own challenges. Custom made pieces come with a price tag, so furnishing the entire space with custom designed furniture can get expensive. Customizing furniture also takes time, and the wait for each piece can take months. But in the broader spectrum, the wait time is worth it once you receive your original piece. City Schemes Contemporary Furniture is the store in the Greater Boston area that can best assist you in customized furniture. With the help of our Sales personnel, we’ll help you create the perfect piece for your living space.
