Would you like to replace some of your furniture? If you’re looking for practical furniture with original design to reinvent your interior, take a look at the following!

10 examples of custom furniture

1- A pretty little table with a minimalist look

Scandinavian-inspired, this small coffee table design is both simple and minimalist. With clean lines, it’s devoid of architectural details and advocates for the enhancement of geometric shapes.

There is a perfect blend of bold and simple, creating the perfect design balance. The back of the bedside table left uncovered reminds us of the importance of natural lighting in a Scandinavian setting where calm and refinement are inseparable.

2- Desk and Murphy bed

Whether you’re naturally compelled towards clean rooms or the need to maximize the space available in a small room, a murphy bed is an excellent choice if you’re looking for furniture that’s both trendy and practical.

Moreover, the model presented above has the additional advantage of being able to transform into a desk. This is very practical, as the same room can have two very distinct functions while avoiding clutter by several massive pieces of furniture. Remember that multifunctional furniture is one of the 2021 decorating trends for the bedroom.

3- An office with an original design

Although this custom-made desk has no storage, it’s still very practical due to the space it offers as well as the minimalist aesthetic of its design, which makes it compact. Its atypical shape is a major asset, which allows us to fully appreciate the natural beauty of wood and the refinement that emanates from it.

4- Imposing wall cabinets

This custom-made cabinet is characterized by a rather classic design. Large-scale, it maximizes the available storage space by taking advantage of the entire wall height. This avoids the presence of unused space where dust can accumulate out of sight. More storage and less cleaning? This is a win-win!

5- Storage built into your stairs

For those who like a tidy room, integrating a custom-made storage space directly into a staircase is a practical and aesthetically-pleasing choice. You won’t need to purchase additional furniture, which means saving on space as well as budget.

Whether it’s for storing books or decorative objects, there’s no doubt that this storage solution will add a touch of originality to your decor.

6- A bench offering storage

In small kitchens, it can be difficult to find enough space to store everything! For smaller rooms, benches with storage space are extremely effective as an addition to a kitchen, keeping things tidy and ready to receive many guests. In addition, this bench offers enough space to accommodate several people, which makes it all the more functional.

7- A custom-made wall unit

This particularly imposing wall unit is perfectly suited to this living room, both because of its classic design and its numerous storage spaces of various sizes. Able to accommodate several decorative objects, television, and speakers, it’s the embodiment of multifunctional furniture.

8- Storage for the entrance hall

The entryway is an often disorganized space in the home where shoes, coats, and school bags are scattered here and there. So how can you remedy this situation?

As seen in this image, the key to the solution lies in a wall unit installation specifically designed for the storage of shoes and coats. There’s even a small section devoted to the family pet, which shows that there’s room for everyone!

9- A kitchen island that’s both pretty and practical

If there’s one piece of furniture that deserves to be custom made, it’s certainly the kitchen island. Discrete or massive, it can be suitable for both small and large kitchens and harmonize with the decor style already present in the rest of the room. This is the perfect example of rustic and modern design, offering ample storage for dishes and pots.

10- A neat and tidy workspace

While some people prefer to enjoy their workspace in complete solitude, others may enjoy some company. Note that for apartments or homes that aren’t very spacious, an office that can be used by two people simultaneously is more than practical.

In this case, available storage is maximized by using the entire height of the wall. Lastly, let's underline the visual continuity offered by the choice of a flooring whose color is very similar to that of the workspace.
