Choice and Selection
Having great choices is important when you go to buy something. You want to be able to compare products, not just for appearance but for quality and craftsmanship. We carry furniture from many companies so that we can have the pieces that will work for our clients. I enjoy seeing and showing the work of other crafts people because there are so many good rustic furniture companies out there. It allows us to have products made from many different materials and from different designers and creative points of view. When we find companies that we like and feel that their products are of the best quality then we stick with them. Because we continue to look for solid, unique furnishings we sometimes come across items that we don't feel meet the Wilderness Creations standards. When we make that determination, we will not continue to carry such products. For example, it has taken us years to find a really good cedar furniture company. There are a lot out there, but some don't have the quality that we demand and others don't have the value that is so important. So, we move on. Now we have found what we believe will be the perfect fit for Wilderness Creations, both in the gallery and online. I will write more about this within the next few weeks. Some would say we should focus on one design or one company, but the problem with that is that one answer does not fit all needs. Our clients have different tastes and different style homes, yet they know that our focus is on the rustic style, not just the hickory style, for example. So, if it is barn board, pine, Amish, hickory or some other type of rustic/Adirondack furniture, we can help. Thanks for reading and have a great day!
