ORDERING – Most pieces are made to order. Customers may select from existing designs or create a new custom piece. In most cases, dimensions of existing designs can be altered to meet space requirements. Various woods, including wood samples, are available. Wood prices differ greatly, and the species chosen will affect the price of a piece. A 50% deposit is required to initiate work, and the balance is due upon completion, before the piece leaves the workshop. Lead time is typically 12-16 weeks, but this may vary depending on the current work load and the size of the project. A simple written agreement, signed by both parties, specifies price, schedule, materials, etc.
With custom work, we normally begin by discussing images from books, magazines, or websites, and then generating a conceptual sketch of the piece(s). From the conceptual sketch and basic material choices, we arrive at an estimated cost. Infusion Furniture will then prepare a written agreement and request an initial design deposit, usually 10-15% of estimated cost, to complete detailed working drawings. Modifications are often made during this process, in consultation with the client. Once the final design is approved, a construction deposit is required to initiate work, and final payment is due upon completion, before the piece leaves the shop.
The collection of furniture is always evolving. New pieces are added regularly and existing designs are often reworked and refined. If you don’t see exactly what you are looking for, please inquire about modifying an existing design or creating a new piece. As a small workshop, Infusion Furniture is very flexible with designs and materials and can accommodate most requests. Please call or email for pricing and other information. Workshop visits are always welcomed, and encouraged, by appointment.
