Aug 14, 2011 Custom Design Furniture, An Affordable Investment
Whether you are in the process of moving house, redecorating, renovating, building, or simply down sizing, choosing the right furnishings for your home can be an expensive and tiresome exercise.
At Sears Morton, however, the process can be a little less painful as the experienced team are pleased to sit down with you in store to discuss the latest available designs, or even a custom designed solution to best suit your needs.
Manager, Tony Ayres says: “We feel that this personal custom design service sets us apart from other retailers. Having a comprehensive range of quality options is important, so too the ability to develop an idea you may have from scratch.”
When you visit the Sears Morton showroom in Fyshwick, you are presented with more than just another furniture store. You are greeted with a haven of entertainment units, sofas, home office, bedroom suites, dining suites, home storage solutions, and much more.
When you are shopping for home furnishings remember, “you are the client” reports Ayres. Whilst large chain stores are constantly shouting the same discount slogans at you, offering the the usual generic products, always remember that there are options available that both meet your budget and offer a solution that will stand the test of time. “The true saving is in selecting furniture in the right size, colour & combination that fits your décor, right down to the selection of timber and handles you may want”.
At Sears Morton, each team member is up to date on every product that is in the store. “For example, our native timber products are sourced through companies such as Toleldo Furniture who for the past 30 years have been supplying us with custom made pieces using timbers from self generated forests in Tasmania”.
“In recent times we have been made aware that some native timbers, particularly Victorian Ash,Tasmanian Blackwood & Oak, are occasionally sent to countries including China only to return as price pointed furniture produced with shorter cuts of timber for the larger (and louder) retailers”. Sears Morton suggests to anyone who is shopping for new furniture to ask as many questions as possible of your sales person. “Where was the timber grown? How far has it been transported to reach the retailer? What is the expected life of the end product? What safety standards does it meet?”
When you are armed with these sorts of questions when shopping for both timber & soft cover furnishings, you might be surprised what you can learn. You may even learn that some of our most iconic brands are now produced in China or South East Asia with only a fraction of the process carried out in Australia in order to meet the guidelines to claim “Australian Made”.
Sears Morton are focused on working with shoppers to guide an informed purchasing decision for an affordable investment. “Not just a short term saving on an imported product that may cost more of the environment in the long run”.
Sourcing from quality craftsman is paramount. So visit the Sears Morton showroom today and sit down with the experienced team to discuss your particular needs. “You’ll never know in what direction your furnishing ideas may take you. Finding out what is possible is just the first step.”
