Designer furniture concerns

A common concern our clients share with us is having to maintain designer furniture. There is often the perception that a bespoke piece of furniture is inherently high maintenance. Few people have the time, energy, or desire to spend precious time worrying over how careful their kids are being at the dining table, or policing dinner guests to use coasters and placemats. 

Finding luxury furniture that complements a low maintenance way of living can indeed be a challenge. Even harder still is choosing between a broad range of materials and finishes.

As furniture designers, we are committed to helping you unjumble trends, offering honest advice on which materials and finishes will best fit your lifestyle. One design does not fit all; that’s why we custom handcraft each piece here in Australia.

FrancoCrea material recommendations

We believe the right combination of hard working materials can create “‘family- proof”’ options that are beautiful yet durable, luxurious yet practical.

Among these hardworking materials is Corian® solid surface. A hidden gem perfect for designer furniture. Corian® is a premium, low-maintenance material that is elegant yet robust. Stain resistant and easy to clean, it is well suited as a designer dining table for busy, growing families or anyone looking for a no-fuss options. The humble microfibre cloth and warm, soapy water are all that’s needed to remove the vast majority of stains and return your tabletop to mint condition. Unlike other materials, Corian® is easily repairable should it sustain a chip, break, or unbecoming scratch.

Among the many reasons we incorporate Corian® into many of our designs is its rating as the safest, most hygienic tabletop choice. With its smooth surface and seamless joins, there is nowhere for germs or viruses to hide. Add to this Corian’s environmentally-friendly green guard indoor air quality certification, and it goes without saying that Corian® is a versatile, sustainable, and premium luxury furniture material.

We always recommend our clients trial Corian® in their homes before taking the plunge. To prove how easy it is to clean and maintain, we encourage you to have fun with it: spill red wine, rub turmeric, smear pasta sauce.

Trialling at home also provides the opportunity to see how a particular colour works with finishes and lighting in their space. Corian® offers an extensive range of colours and finishes to compliment any interior; our expert furniture designers provide guidance to co-create a piece you’ll enjoy for years and generations to come

Avoid costly furniture mistakes

Other, less robust materials can leave you in a state of worry, constantly supervising your family and dinner guests. Worst yet, some may decide not to use the table at all for fear something will cause irreversible damage. This, for us, is not okay because we believe what is beautiful should also be functional. 

Our personalised furniture experience means every piece is a perfect fit. We achieve this by digging deep into details to understand how and where you live.
