Modular Furniture/ Traditional Furniture

User-specific vs Generic design


Custom made furniture gives users the flexibility to determine the functional aspect of the furniture peculiar to him. It is not generic in nature. In general practice, furniture design follows the ergonomic standards. Custom make gives one the freedom to redefine these standards as per their preferences. We at BLOSSOM KITCHEN AND FURNITURE design the furniture pieces for the client along with them to ensure user satisfaction. In the case of modular make, the production happens on a larger extent.

Although the fineness is determined by machines, it is not a statement piece of a certain user. The design generally follows the standards in terms of the sizes which are generic to a larger extent of the society. In the case of custom made where the material and colours can be personally chosen, modular furniture has limitations in terms of theiir sizes and colours. 

2. Quality check vs Mass production

Custom made furniture helps to keep a detailed eye on the quality of the product. Not only can the quality of the raw materials be certified but also the making process can be looked at with sheer attention. Customised pieces follow the traditional furniture making method which helps to determine the time invested by the craftsmen. There is a huge gap between a custom make and mass produce. Modular or mass productions consume less time as it involves the machines.

At the same time, the materials that go in the production end up going unchecked as they go in for production on a larger scale. We at BLOSSOM KITCHEN AND FURNITURE not only take pride in building our own furniture pieces from scratch but also make sure the quality is checked by our highly skilled on-site team. We deliver furniture designed for the end-user with a personal touch. 

3. Adaptivity to any space vs Rigid structure


The custom made furniture has the ability to be designed as per the space around it. For eg., the length of a wardrobe can be determined by the space available in the bedroom. At the same time, modular wardrobes come in customize suze as per measurements. These conditions are taken into consideration when a custom piece is built on the site.

Narrowing it down further, BLOSSOM KITCHEN AND FURNITURE ensures that minor details are looked at. Like the internal configuration of saying a wardrobe is determined based on the specifications of the end-user. Modular wardrobes are produced in a set pattern which Perfectly suitable for the requirements of every buyer.

4. Value for Money vs Pocket friendly 

Custom made furniture is looked at from an investment point of view as it is heavier on the pocket than modular furniture. One of the reasons for the same is the effort and work that goes into making the furniture pieces tailored to one’s specifications. It also involves a huge amount of backhand services like transportation, raw materials, making from scratch, skilled labour. These factors affect the cost of production as multiple agencies are involved.

On the other hand, modular furniture is mass produced and consumed by a larger extent of the society who do not intend to invest in custom made. The factories producing modular furniture buy the raw materials in bulk at a much lower cost, thus the end product ends up being cheaper than a customised product.

5. Environmental Consciousness


As a user and a member of society, it is essential to prioritize the environment. When it comes to furniture production, it is important to be aware of the factors that can cause effects on the natural environment.  In case of custom made furniture, one can directly control the making, use and source of raw materials- if they are hazardous to the environment or beings, place where the furniture was made, health and well being of the labourers that are working at it day in and out, disposal of waste created.

At the same time, these factors are controlled by private entities that are involved in mass production. It is hard to tell the sources of the factors that contribute to the production. Along with that, industrial waste is generated on a large scale which not only affects the atmosphere but also the well being of all living organisms.
