Bespoke Furniture with G Plan Upholstery

In our consumerist world of convenience and choice, we have all become used to being able to get what we want, when we want it and to the standard we expect it. The trouble is with this kind of mass-produced line of products, when it comes to furniture, is that those of us who want to reflect a bit more personality in our living spaces all end up with the same furniture as all our neighbours. Handcrafted, bespoke items may come with a higher price tag, but the value that you receive with something like, for example, G Plan Upholstery living room furniture, goes far beyond price.

G Plan is a brand with a long history dating back to 1898, when Ebenezer Gomme made his name with fine, handcrafted furniture items. His grandson, Donald, founded the G Plan brand in 1953, and since then it has gone from strength to strength. If you choose a piece of furniture from the G Plan Upholstery range, then you are getting not only that wonderful, handcrafted furniture item, but also a 10-year frame and spring guarantee. You can be absolutely assured of their quality, as they say in their own advertising – “Relax, it’s a G Plan.”

All G Plan items are handcrafted in the UK, and make use of the highest possible quality materials in their design and construction. But why does any of this matter? Why is a handcrafted bespoke piece of furniture a better option than something mass produced?

Firstly, handcrafted furniture tells a story. In the case of G Plan, it represents an incredible history; a development of a family business that is now a household name. Each item represents the love, care and skill of its craftsman, and that is something that will truly enhance your living space.

Secondly, perhaps more practically, is that handcrafted and/or bespoke items are nearly always produced in a more ethical manner than mass-produced furniture. For instance, all G Plan furniture is made from responsibly sourced hardwood, and because it’s handcrafted, you know you are not getting a product that is the result of exploitation or controversial production means. What’s more, despite each individual piece being carefully crafted by experienced carpenters, all items are up to ISO 9001 standards, ensuring your peace of mind for both quality and safety.

Anyone who is considering a handcrafted or bespoke furniture item is doing it for an important reason – they want their furniture and living space to stand out; to tell a story and to evoke powerful emotion. They want their purchase to become a family heirloom, a lasting legacy of family memories and happy times together.
