Why Custom Built?

A great deal of new furniture is currently manufactured in China.  Many furniture manufacturers use inferior products in the fabrication process and, in fact, a new term has hit the furniture market as a result of such processes . . . ENGINEERED WOOD.  Engineered wood is nothing more than a fancy name for PRESSBOARD or PARTICLE BOARD.  In addition to “engineered wood”, these same manufacturers also use pine, cardboard and a spring / support system called “no-sag” springs. Although in certain circumstances, no sag springs are adequate, they should NEVER be used in the seating of sofas, chairs and pieces used on a regular basis.
