How Hand-carved Furniture Fare Much Better than Mass-produced Ones
Have you ever wondered why you spend so much time and money purchasing furnishings for your home?
Yes! That's because each piece of furniture you buy for your house is a long-term investment that will undoubtedly improve your quality of life. In reality, because this is a long-term investment, it is essential to seek and purchase the most valuable items, in terms of money and functionality. You need to ensure that the furniture of your choice can withstand a variety of climates, long-term goals (such as relocating and having children!), as well as age and appearance.
As biased as we may be, the Kulture Deco crew consistently prefers hand-carved and handcrafted furniture over mass-produced furniture. Why? All handcrafted furniture is guaranteed to be one-of-a-kind - no two pieces of furniture are exactly the same, even though they are produced and carved in the same way. It may also be customized to match your personality and your house. Apart from those, handmade furniture has several advantages, including environmental, health, financial, and suitability to your family. While it will take more time to carve and craft, mass-produced furniture may lose all of these characteristics.
This is why in our vocabulary, hand-carved and handcrafted wooden furniture rule supreme. We’re trying to convert you - let’s discover why we selectively prefer handmade furniture over mass-produced ones!
Get the perfect fit to yours and your home’s personalities, as well as long-term plans
Does your apartment feature unique cornices? Or maybe you brought in some ancient and unusual window glass from Bali? Handcrafted coffee tables, mirrors, and home decorative wall panels will complement the space well. You will probably not be able to get the same characters if you opt for a mass-produced coffee table or a mirror. They will probably be the odd one out, in spite of your repetitive efforts to redecorate the space.

Or are you the eccentric, one-of-a-kind type? A piece of handcrafted furniture is a perfect fit for your personality. Every handcrafted artwork, as previously said, conveys a unique narrative. In other words, although being manufactured to be the same product, each piece of handmade furniture will be distinct from its sisters. Even if they are the same product in the catalog, your home decorative wall panel will have distinct creases and grooves than your best friend's. They hold a special place even in your own personality, meanwhile, mass-produced furniture do not even have the characteristic you want for your home.

You may also select your preferred materials based on your plans and compatibility. If you want to have children in the future, for example, you might request a dull edge rather than a crisp, sharp one. Kulture Deco provides a seven-day return policy if you don't like what you purchase from us, so you may pick your furniture depending on your preferences!
Custom-made furniture is often built to last, and if properly cared for, it may last as long as you desire. You know what’s cute? It can even be passed down the generations as an heirloom! In addition, the longevity of hand-carved wooden furniture saves you money over time. You do not have to frequently spend for a replacement. For example, the compartments on a coffee table may be customized as necessary. You don't need to get a "larger", or “better” one because your pre-consideration is rewarded!

Taking our part to be sustainable
As previously said, each piece of handmade furniture is unmistakably exclusive. It also implies that they provide purposeful and mindful designs and methods for both your house, as well as the environment. The designs are crafted carefully rather than quickly and uniformly as mass-produced items are. Furthermore, the process of making handcrafted furniture is likely to emit little or no emissions, and even if it does, it will be mainly biodegradable. Meanwhile, a mass-produced industry often consumes a lot of plastic and emits a lot of carbon into the atmosphere.
It is crucial to acknowledge that these will factor into supporting climate change in our current world. Apart from being a unique brand itself, Kulture Deco is also committed to contributing to the circular economy. In the creation of our wooden furniture, we are supporting the life of Made, a local craftsman from Central Bali.
Made's passion for wood carving has blossomed into a full-fledged career. In the last 20 years, woodcarving has not only allowed him to participate in Bali's economic activities, but it has also aided him in overcoming adversity. After losing his son to kidney failure, he became depressed, however, wood carving gave him a strong reason to live. His abilities and talents in wood-carving has assisted him in getting through life.
"Carving has saved me and turned my hopeless thoughts into something more positive. I felt that I had to continue writing beautiful stories through the pieces that I am creating.”
