How Custom Can You Go: Custom Options For Upholstered Furniture

Polanco Home Furniture & Interior Decor Solutions is proud to say that we offer Canadian-made furniture. Our clients can select from many furniture styles for any room in their home, and customize the piece to fully make it their own. The final product is a piece tailored to fit their space and personal style. We can customize many aspects of our Canadian-made furniture including the size, comfort, upholstery, leg style, and nailhead detail. With all of these options, we can create the perfect piece for our clients, made-to-order right here in Canada!


Our Canadian manufacturers custom-build per order the solid hardwood frames of our pieces, allowing us the opportunity to alter the size for our clients. A few key factors help us to determine sizing. The size of the furniture should be chosen based on the size of the space. We help clients living in a variety of homes, from smaller condominiums to larger houses. When determining the size of the furniture, comfort is crucial. We are able to adjust the seat depth, seat height, back height, arm width, and arm height of many of our styles to accommodate our client’s specific needs.


At Polanco, the comfort of our clients is an important consideration when designing their piece. The inserts selected for the seat and/or back cushions of the furniture are an important custom option. The choice of inserts will determine the level of firmness or softness, achieving ideal comfort for the client. Our clients have the option of choosing different densities of foam based on their comfort level. Feather or down can be added to the seats and/or back cushions if a soft, plush comfort is desired, or complete down filled cushions for the softest option.


The benefit to working with Canadian made products is the option to have many choices of upholstery for all styles of furniture. While our manufacturers provide fabric and leather options, we also work with other upholstery companies to expand our client’s selection even further. In the design room at Polanco, the variety of fabric books and leather options available allow our clients to personalize their piece. Our knowledgeable staff are experienced in both fabric and leather, allowing us to guide our clients in the right direction to find the best option for their space.


Our client’s furniture can be further customized with a selection of stain or paint choices on the wood legs or base of the furniture. When selecting a finish for the wood, consider the colour(s) of the other wood stains in the space, i.e. coffee table, end tables and wood flooring. Our design staff will recommend a stain or paint colour of the legs and base that complements the upholstery of the piece and works well with our client’s home. For a more contemporary design, we may recommend choosing metal legs. We offer metal legs in chrome, brushed nickel, satin nickel or gold finishes. A reminder, we recommend this choice based on the style of the piece as well as the style of the client’s other furniture and their home. Our design staff may offer the choice of nailheads to accent and add elegance or glamour to our client’s furniture, many options of finishes are available for our nailheads.

To answer the question “How custom can you go?”— the answer is very custom. Given the choice of size, comfort, upholstery, leg style, and nailhead detail, our clients are sure to find the perfect piece. Please contact our knowledgeable staff to design the perfect custom piece for your home.
