I am known by all of my friends as the slightly off kilter mom. My home has an eclectic southwest style, and my husband and I have a unique way of raising our kids to be free thinkers. Our children are rarely ever grounded, and we honestly think they are better for it. Between our son and daughter, plus the dog, two cats, and our wildlife rescues, I’ve had to be very mindful in how I decorate and furnish our home. I’m always taking care to note whether things are in the danger zone of being knocked over by the kids or our pets, as well trying to find materials that fit our style and our life. Neither of us wants anything in our house to be boring, but nor do we want it to fall apart on us. Fortunately, we found the right meeting of both worlds with custom built southwest furniture. Our designer is always delighted by the new things we come up with, and is happy to find the exact type of textile or wood or even other natural material like recycle horns or reclaimed barn boards to make our dreams come true. Custom built furniture does cost a great deal more than retail furniture, but that’s because it is built to last. The furniture in our southwestern home does not come from a factory, it comes from our custom built furniture supplier who hails from four generations of furniture craftsmanship. This way, we never have to sacrifice our unique sense of style for fantastic furniture.
