Maurice’s Furnishings Can Build A Custom Kitchen For You

One of the nicest things you can ever do when it comes to your home's interior is to update your kitchen with custom made cabinetry. Pieces that are crafted with care and are unique to your design and vision become works of art that are not only useful, but great to look at. And although the cost is greater on the front end, the return on your investment is years of pleasure as you live in your home and higher resale value when you decide to move. Society as a whole is moving more and more toward the thought that people want a unique experience with every facet of their lives - custom cabinetry or furniture fits that bill perfectly.

That is the true measure of their craftsmanship - the ability to take an idea and execute it so that the client loves it from first sight.

Maurice’s Customizes Imported Furniture To Create One-of-a-kind Pieces

One of the things that home owners treasure is the ability to have a one-of-a-kind experience in their living spaces. No one wants a cookie-cutter look in their home, where if you leave your house and go to a friend's you see the same furniture, the same wall color, and the same appliances. We want variety and we want to be unique - it is part of the human condition.

Furniture-Store-Palm-BeachMaurice's Furnishings in the West Palm area understands this and that is one of the reasons they import furniture from Europe and places abroad, bringing unique lines or pieces back to the U.S. for discerning individuals who are wanting that singular experience in their furnishings. You can build an entire room around a single, beautiful chair – just like an interior design professional. And making that gorgeous piece the focal point of the room actually makes decorating easier because you have a definite theme. Nothing brings quite as much pleasure to a home owner than to see a room come together around a treasured piece.

This is another reason that Maurice's Furnishings in the West Palm Beach area brings imported furniture to America - it gives you so many more options than you would originally have had. Some of the types of imported furniture available from Maurice's include dining tables, coffee and end tables, sideboards, chairs, benches and stools, vanities, servers and TV consoles, cabinets and glass hutches, bookcases, dressers, nightstands, accessories like light fixtures, mirrors, pictures and detail pieces and so much more.  Then, they can take these pieces and customize the finish to blend with your color scheme.

Say you found the perfect coffee table and end tables plus a console for your living room, but the only thing is that they just aren't the right color or finish as you envision your room. Maurice's can customize that color and finish to your exact specifications and apply it to those imported pieces and all of a sudden you have furniture that no one would ever be able to match in a million years - completely unique.

You could find that great coffee table but need it at least a foot longer than it originally comes. This can be customized for you as well - those same craftsmen can take that piece and add in a foot of length to create a one-of-a-kind coffee table that no one could duplicate.

This talent for finding beautiful imported furniture whether you like it as is or totally customized to suit your tastes and/or room dimensions, makes Maurice's Furnishings itself completely unique in the industry. They pick out the right pieces to import and then offer their services should the customer want to make any of the pieces theirs and theirs alone. It is something that is not offered many other places in the U.S., and Maurice's Furnishings just about has the market cornered when it comes to this type of customization on imported furniture.

Where Does Reclaimed Wood Come From?

There is nothing like a good story. We love to hear a great love story with a romantic ending. We love stories that are unique and passionate and one-of-a-kind. Nothing is as captivating as a story that draws us in and speaks to each individual on their own level. That must be one of the fascinations with reclaimed wood and what is made from it in a next iteration.

west palm beach reclaimed wood furnitureReclaimed wood is lumber that has had a former life as something other than what it is now serving as or intended for. There are actually many sources of reclaimed wood around the country, and you probably pass some of these sources every day as you travel to and from your workplace. Barns are one of the best sources of reclaimed wood anywhere around - especially old barns that are still standing after many, many years of use and/or disuse. The timbers in these old barns have stood the test of time, they have a weathered patina that can't be reproduced, and they are sturdy reminders of a time gone by. These barns have stories to tell and secrets to whisper to us when they are reclaimed and made into flooring or siding or furniture or cabinetry - showing off that age-earned patina in a new setting where it is loved for exactly what it is - useful and beautiful still.

Old wineries or breweries where alcohol was kept in wooden casks - sometimes huge in size, and old vertical plank water tanks of old. These pieces have another type of patina that came from the liquids they held - something so unique it, too, can't be reproduced with any accuracy.

Timbers from railroad ties, and those old crooked wooden fences you see scattered here and there in the countryside are other sources of reclaimed wood. They are usually used in window frames, furniture or other pieces where quantity isn't a factor like it would be for flooring. Another exceptional source for reclaimed wood is from trees that have died naturally but remained standing. These trees dry out as they stand and create lumber that doesn't twist or warp like green wood would do.

We have just participated in something sustainable that benefits our world. Maurice's Furnishings in West Palm Beach loves to take reclaimed wood and create stunning pieces of custom furniture or cabinetry that brings out the best features of those historic pieces - helping them tell their story of past lives without saying a word.

Any way you cut it, reclaimed wood is a wonderful way to populate your home with something old as something new and useful into the future. If this appeals to you, contact Maurice's Furnishings at 561-747-4539 and see what they have to offer for your home with their reclaimed wood pieces.
