How Do You Define “High End Furniture”?

April 26th, 2010   by :  

When visualizing high end furniture, each of us may have a different picture in mind.

  • Is high end furniture defined by its style? Does a luxurious, modern design featuring wood accents and rich hardware define “high end”? Or can a traditional, simple piece also be considered high end?
  • Is high end furniture defined by who makes it? Can assembly-line furniture, even if well-made, be considered high end? Or must it be handcrafted by a trained artisan?
  • Is high end furniture defined by how it is made? Is the distinct impression of a furniture craftsmen what makes a furniture piece great? Can a piece that uses plywood backing and wood veneers be high end?

Each of these question help to define what is high end furniture. Each piece must be considered individually and many factors must be weighed to decide whether it is high end. To gain a better understanding of high quality furniture, browse handcrafted furniture online or plan a trip to a local Amish furniture market to see first-hand the difference between low end and high end furniture.
