When it comes to making a statement with your furniture, custom-designed leg frames offer a remarkable solution. Unlike standard styles that are designed to be simpler and less intrusive, custom designs are tailored to match your wood or stone slab table top, both aesthetically and functionally.
In this blog post, we will guide you through the key aspects of custom design leg frames, providing you with a comprehensive understanding of what to expect from your custom design journey with The Table Guy in Singapore:
Understanding Custom Design
It's important to differentiate between customising and custom design. Customising involves adjusting the aesthetic properties of stock shapes, such as making a standard straight leg frame taller or shorter.
On the other hand, custom design entails creating an entirely new form that not only matches your unique table top aesthetically but is also engineered for stability and durability. These one-off pieces are meticulously hand-built to your specifications.
How to Start
Before delving into the aesthetics of your custom-designed leg frame, it's essential to finalise the dimensions of your wood/ stone slab table. Understanding the space you have available will help you explore various styles that work harmoniously with your table's size. To gather inspiration, browsing platforms like Pinterest can expose you to a wide array of table design possibilities.
Tip: Keep an open mind during this process, as your preferences might evolve over time. The Table Guy team is always available to offer guidance, so don't hesitate to reach out via WhatsApp for quick advice, feasibility assessments, and cost estimates based on reference images and dimensions.
The cost of a custom-designed leg frame is influenced by two main factors: materials and workmanship.
Different materials vary significantly in price, with options like stainless steel being more expensive but offering enhanced rust resistance for outdoor use.
The design complexity and the level of workmanship required also impact the price. Hand-building one-off pieces demands time and expertise, making leg frames with intricate welding points or advanced techniques more costly than simpler designs.
