Turn Your Bonus Into A Lasting Family Heirloom

With Custom Wood Furniture


Over the past several years, year-end bonuses have been making a comeback as businesses perform better; last year, nearly 80 percent of businesses provided some year-end or performance-based bonus to their employees. With a typical financial bonus accounting for one or two weeks’ salary, you may be sitting on a substantial amount and you’re wondering what to do with it in the New Year. If you want to set aside the money for something that will last, consider investing it in a piece of custom wood furniture.

Buying a piece of custom furniture isn’t just about making a good impression, although it certainly will make your home stand out when you invite friends and family over for dinner parties and holidays. It can also be a deeply personal decision, something for your joy alone, such as a handcrafted bedframe or a desk and office collection. Luckily, thanks to a handful of dedicated, traditional furniture makers, it is still possible to find beautiful pieces of hand crafted wood furniture that’s been stained and custom-sized to the customer’s preferences in Toronto. This type of furniture is made from woods such as oak, cherry, maple and pine, which are known for their beauty and longevity and all have different qualities worth exploring before you settle on a decision.

When making such a purchase it is important to choose a company that has a track record of producing only quality, handcrafted furniture for generations. In Toronto, you can choose from custom furniture makers like Woodcraft, a second-generation family business that’s been around for over forty years. 

The idea behind custom furniture is always choices: besides choosing from a wide variety of styles and makes, you also get to choose the material of the piece, the finish, and get the dimensions that work for you. If you want a dining room table, it’s important that you can find the piece that fits your whole extended family, or if you’re looking for a desk, one that fits the dimensions of your home office. Imagine a beautiful, hand crafted desk, dining room set or dresser that’s truly worth handing down to your children, and that can be refinished in years to come. Over the years this type of furniture improves in beauty and becomes a cherished possession of those who are fortunate to inherit it.

Whether you are just starting to furnish your home or have been in the same location for some time, deciding to purchase handcrafted wood furniture is an excellent choice. Imagine having beautiful cherry, maple or other custom wood furniture that has been specially designed and crafted to your particular needs. It is also an excellent choice for an office and gives the impression of elegance, stability, and authority; if you’re interested in investing in top-of-the-line furniture, you can visit www.woodcraft.ca to see what kinds of options are available to you.

Today, many people enjoy the beauty of hand crafted furniture that was purchased years ago by their parents or grandparents, or even further back. Whether it’s a desk or a dining room table, there is a special attraction that catches the eye and defines the atmosphere of a room.

Contacting a well-known Canadian company like Woodcraft that has been in business for years and specializes in handcrafted custom wood furniture is a great way to get started. It’s a smart way to spend that year-end bonus that will also save you money down the line, as this kind of furniture will outlive big box pieces. They will be able to build beautiful signature pieces for any location in your home or office and you can be confident that your purchase will meet your specific needs.

    I love the idea of custom furniture and would go for it at the drop of a hat. Unfortunately, it’s also pretty pricey and my pension won’t stretch that far 🙁

    All the pieces I have inherited, I love. I just commissioned a Hope Chest for my best friend…

    I love wood furniture and have a few pieces that will be passed down. I got a couple pieces from my grandparents and a couple that I bought myself. They are stunning. My husband does woodworking and so I know how much time and energy went into the different pieces and I love them.

  4. Dotty J Boucher says:
