Your furnishings, your way: Custom B.C. creations at your doorstep

If you’re investing in a piece of furniture, ‘close enough’ doesn’t cut it – you want it to be just right.

And while you can certainly get a feel for what’s out there by browsing the showroom of your favourite home furnishings store, you may not see the perfect colour, fabric or configuration for your home.

The good news? That just-right living room suite is just a custom order away, thanks to the knowledgeable folks at Dodd’s Furniture and Mattress and team from British Columbia’s Elite Furnishings, a longstanding family business crafting quality furniture right across the strait in Delta.

And even better news: Because of that proximity, and Dodd’s delivery, ordering this week can still ensure your new furniture gets to you for the holidays!

So, how do you create that perfect-for-you custom piece? Start at home:

  1. Consider your goals. Are you hoping to replace a tired living room sofa with a family-friendly sectional? Or maybe add a couch to your office that can double as a comfy guest bed? Fine-tuning your goals is the first step.
  2. Consider your needs. Will the sofa need to withstand the demands of kids or pets, for example, or do you need extra storage? With innovative designs and remarkably resilient fabrics, choosing the right manufacturer will ensure you’re investing in a piece that will serve you well for years to come.
  3. Consider your space. A good understanding of the room you’re outfitting will go a long way – just be sure to bring those specs with you to order your new sofa. Make a note of the measurements of the room and into it – not only wall-to-wall. The location of doors, windows, etc. The last thing you want is a couch that’s too big for the room, or one that gets lost in the space. And do bring along any fabrics or paint samples you’re trying to work with as well.
  4. Consider your style. Today’s furnishings run the gamut from traditional to modern, with transitional designs adapting to a variety of settings, whether you want a bold statement piece or something more classic. And with Elite offering more than 400 fabric options to choose from, and new handpicked fabrics added to their inventory every three to six months, the Dodds team can help you find a selection to satisfy the latest trends or your timeless style.

Once you’ve done all your “home” work, it’s time to head to Dodd’s to create your custom sofa, chair or sectional, and be ready to celebrate the coming holiday season in style.
