When looking to settle down, a common question arises: what do I want my furniture to look like? How you furnish your home is important. Instead of a cookie-cutter furnishing option –collecting furniture from around friends and family, generic chain stores, or Ikea, most people would prefer their furniture to be an expression of their personality and style. Increasingly, people are beginning to realize the advantages of investing in quality hand made  furniture.

Not only does purchasing quality furniture hand crafted from solid walnut wood enable you to personalize your home’s decor with the design and comfort you choose, it pays off in the long run.Y-Jean Mun-Delsalle, contributing writer toForbes, says that we are entering a new era of design. “Homeowners these days are purchasing investment pieces for their interiors that will look just as good in 50 years’ time as they do today.”

This new trend towards choosing design over cheap, disposable furniture is in reaction to years and years of buying mass produced furniture.

Not so long ago, people invested in quality furniture. They didn’t buy the cheap sofa at their local department store. They invested in furniture that would not only last for their lifetime, but for their children's, as well. These people, our parents and grandparents, realized the value of investing in furniture that would last. Not only did buying custom, handmade furniture mean savinga lot of money in the long run, it also ensured that the furniture would be unique. Custom made furniture stays relevant long after it is purchased, because it is a piece of art.

People are realizing the need not only for custom made furniture, but the need for design.

The 2000s are seeing a rise in design.Just as important to homeowners as to businessmen, design is changing the way we spend and invest. Products made by Apple and other game changing industry leaders have set a new standard for how everyday objects look. We have moved beyond technology for technology’s sake, and into a world of aesthetically appealing objects. Just look at this list ofbest product designs from 2015 to get a feel for how design is changing how consumers spend.
