You will never look at a sofa or a console table the same way again.

An outstanding piece of furniture can often be the pivotal piece in a room’s design. The single key element that brings everything together, provides focus, establishes your design theme, makes your scheme complete. The right piece can tie in anything from the history of the building, to the background of the client, to the signature touch of you the designer. Sometimes you know straight away what you need, other times getting it right can be a trial, but either way even knowing the piece you need doesn’t mean it’ll be easy to find, no matter how may collections and showrooms you scour.

What if there is another way, what if that perfect piece can be exactly what you visualise in every detail – no compromises, no ‘best fit’ – just perfection?

Well, Metier Academy and Lacaze would like to show you the way – bespoke furniture design! Now everyone almost immediately dismisses bespoke in these days of tight budgets and ‘value for money’, but, as we’ll show on the workshop, bespoke does not have to mean expensive. That’s not to say bespoke furniture design is always easy, but this course is carefully planned to lead you through everything you need to consider, from drawings to fillings, from functions to regulations and from budgets to lead times.

Let Metier Academy and Lacaze help you expand your skill-set as a designer and give you a new appreciation for the possibilities that lie down the bespoke furniture path – it could be a turning point for that project you’re thinking about now, or for the many exciting projects to come!



Calling all Interior Designers....

-

Bespoke Furniture Design Workshop | The Beauty is in the Detail!

Are you an Interior Designer who:

  • Loves the idea of designing something special for the client, however you worry about getting it wrong?
  • Thinks that copious Detailed Working Drawings are required?
  • Is unsure about whether a bespoke piece would blow the clients budget and therefore would rather go ready-made?
  • Doesn’t really know enough about FR Fabrics or foam and therefore is hesitant to place an order?
  • Agonises over getting the scale of a piece just right and tweaks …..and tweaks …..and tweaks?

This workshop is for you!

We are going to be asking you to put your Interior Designer’s hat to one side for a few hours and instead…..place you side-by-side with one of London’s Expert Bespoke Manufacturers who is going to share with you Inside Tips, Industry knowledge and key experiences on the right approach. .

A taste of what you will cover:

  • Realise the starting point for any bespoke piece
    • What do you want to achieve?
    • Is this suitable for the space / the client?
  • Concept Image vs Presentation drawings vs Workshop drawings
    • How do you know if what you are presenting....can actually manufactured?
  • Materials, Fillings and Finishes
    • How do you know that you and your client are on the same page in terms of how a piece will feel?
    • What are the most appropriate for a particular piece
    • Foam and seating
  • Ergonomics
    • Some things change, some things always stay the same.
  • Regulations
    • Timbers
