Choosing a Custom Lounge Suite for your home can be both an exciting and rewarding process. With the wide range of options available, it’s important to consider several factors to ensure you make the right choice. At Nordic Design Furniture, we have over 50 years of experience and can discuss the key considerations with you when it comes to selecting your Custom Lounge Furniture, so allow us to provide helpful insight to guide you through the decision-making process.


Tailored for Your Space

Firstly, before delving into the endless options of Custom Made Lounge Suites, it’s important to evaluate the space in your home. This includes considering the size of your room and deciding where your Lounge Suite will be sit – taking into account any doorways, windows, or other furniture that may affect the its placement. This will be the first step to help you determine the best size, shape and configuration for your Lounge Suite.

We’ll Build a Lounge Just for You

Additionally, you’ll want to consider the overall style and aesthetic of your home when choosing your Lounge Furniture. Decide whether you prefer a modern, contemporary, traditional, or eclectic design – as Local Furniture Manufacturers, we can create anything you desire… So there’s no need to feel limited in your preferences. And if you’re needing some inspiration to choose the right aesthetic for your space, we can show you a range of images on our digital photo album. See previous Custom Lounges we’ve designed for previous customers and explore the endless upholstery options on display in our Showroom.

While there is plenty of inspiration available, the end result is always completely unique, because each of our Lounges are individual handcrafted in our local Furniture Factory. This is something we’re especially proud to offer our customers, because no two homes or families are the same… so it only makes sense to have a Custom Lounge Suite that’s made just for you.


Your Choice of Materials

Another key component of any Lounge Suite is the materials used. The choice of material for your Custom Lounge Suite is crucial for both comfort and durability. We offer both Leather and Fabric options, from some of the most reputable local suppliers, including Warwick Fabrics, Zepel Fabrics, Wortley, and Tasman Leather.

Of course, each material has its own pros and cons to consider. Leather naturally offers a more luxurious feel and durability – with the added bonus of being low maintenance. While fabric offers a wider range of colours, patterns and textures, but you may be cautious of it staining. Luckily, many fabrics now come with stain guarding built into the material, which is especially welcomed by customers.

Alternatively, our craftspeople can also apply professional grade stain guarding for you (should you choose a fabric which doesn’t have it built in). Overall, you have to consider your lifestyle, personal preferences, and budget when choosing the upholstery for your Custom Lounge Suite.


Options for Comfort

When it comes to Lounges, what is possibly the most important factor to contemplate is Comfort. At Nordic Design, we consider features such as cushion firmness, suitable lumbar support, and ergonomic design. Considering the depth and height of the seats, as well as the firmness of the cushions will all play a part in the overall feeling your Lounge Suite offers. In our Showroom you can test out different Lounge styles in person to help determine your Individual Seating Preferences.

Another one of the key advantages of choosing a Custom Lounge Suite is being able to choose a configuration to best fulfil your needs, and we think having this Design Flexibility is very important. Consider whether you prefer a Modular Lounge, a Sofa with Accent Chairs, or a combination of both (if space allows). You’ll obviously need to consider the number of seats you require for family and friends, but additional features such as an Added Chaise or Reclining option too.


Configured for You

Customising the configuration allows you to maximise the functionality and usability of your Lounge Suite. And there is no right or wrong way to do this… Group seating can be a welcomed option for those with growing families, as it encourages quality time together…

While separate Lounge pieces offer more flexibility in room layout and giving people more choice of where to sit and relax. It all depends on how you like to use your Lounge Room and what furniture pieces will best fulfil this.


Custom Details

When it comes to ordering a Custom Lounge Suite, it’s worth thinking about the finer details that can enhance its overall appeal. Consider the finish of the legs, stitching, and any other decorative elements like added button back or rolled arms. All of these ‘finer details’ will play an important role in creating the final outcome of your Lounge.

With our Local Craftsmanship, our Furniture Makers take the finer details like this into consideration and can seamlessly incorporate a range of custom features to significantly impact the longevity and aesthetic of your Lounge Furniture.


A Lounge Suite Made for You

While choosing ‘Custom’ seems like the obvious choice, it’s worth considering ready made options as well. Either way you choose, we make all of our Furniture to order, meaning your items are individually hand crafted (whether you choose custom or not). So it’s worth taking the time to consider all of the options to find the best outcome for your home… Our experienced and friendly staff will happily take the time to help you in working out the most suitable outcome.

In conclusion, choosing a Custom Lounge Suite for your home requires careful consideration of factors such as space, style, material, comfort, configuration, and other special features. By following these guidelines and taking the time to research and compare options, you can find the Perfect Lounge Suite that meets your needs and enhances the overall aesthetic of your home.
