We live in a world of speed, convenience, and instant gratification. When it comes to interior design and furniture, off-the-shelf is king. It’s understandable why. It’s affordable, and you do not have to wait six weeks for it to be delivered. Just pick what you want, take it home that day, and one evening later you have a living room suite. But is that the best way of doing things?

It might be the fastest. But speed and convenience comes at a price. Quality, longevity and style are often sacrificed. There’s no such thing as one-size-fits-all when it comes to furniture. What fits beautifully in one person’s bedroom - or the showroom - might be awkward and ungainly in another.

But is there a better solution? Well the short answer is yes. By increasing your budget and paying a little more for your furniture, you unlock a whole world of opportunities. Namely, bespoke furniture.

Bespoke furniture is made-to-measure. Much like a tailored suit, it is designed specifically for you as a perfect fit. Working with a specialist designer means there is no risk of furniture being too long or too short - extensive pre-planning means it’s guaranteed to fit where you want it to go. Entire suites and rooms can be done this way, allowing you to maximise your storage space and build a home that is unique to only you.

Daniel Keenan Interiors is a furniture manufacturer dedicated to making furniture exactly to the customer’s specifications. Each piece is a one of a kind, with custom colour, shape and comfort.

Daniel Keenan Interiors creates made-to-measure sofas with great quality fabrics in around five weeks, Dan will come to your home and measure the room space, by choosing a bespoke sofa; the size, fabric and finish that will fit your exact measurements, enabling it to fit in the space you require giving your home that truly personal touch. Getting it through the entrance or up the stairs not a problem the sofas can be made to be flat packed.

But do these advantages come at a price? Well, yes. The prices are higher than those found on the high street, but it’s a worthy investment. The durability, longevity and unique nature of the furniture means the cost is balanced out over a longer period of time and the results are simply stunning. There is also a guarantee of 15 years which gives a sense of the manufacturer’s confidence in its products.

The family business is masterminded by Daniel Keenan himself who has been building furniture for over 40 years. His wife is the sewing expert and responsible for the magnificent finishing touches. The small workshop fits only four people at a time, but the attention and detail in the products really comes across in the resulting furniture.

When it comes to furniture, it pays to spend a little more. Creating bespoke, personalised furniture that will stand the test of time is one of the best ways to give your home that extra spark, increase its value and really do it justice.
