In fact, rather than harm the environment, rattan can be considered to benefit it, insofar as it is used as a replacement for wood wicker in many furniture items. This, in turn, helps preserve forests, as it reduces the need to source wood from trees, preventing deforestation and logging. Furthermore, this plant is often grown in floodplains, thereby facilitating the appearance of animal populations in said areas and making use of soil which would, otherwise, go unused. Finally, rattan harvesting and sourcing helps provide jobs for inhabitants of the areas of the world the material is commonly found at, thus helping maintain a sustainable economy.
Custom Made Furniture v/s Store Bought Furniture: Most people are often doubtful about the idea of getting custom made furniture for one very good reason: cost. It is often misunderstood that custom made furniture are expensive and have an ultra-high-end living which is totally not the concept. This should not be the deciding factor, as there can be many useful, better and practical benefits to custom furniture. A custom piece will solve certain problems that no ready-made equivalent can. Here are few points which states their difference:
Visual Appeal. Store Bought furniture has limited visual appeal but by using right textures, elements can make it visually good. But in customised furniture because of freedom in design you can aim better visuals.
Fitting functional needs. Store-bought furniture can’t always do what you need to be done. Example, you do a lot of desk work and have one particular corner to accommodate desk, computer, supplies, etc. You may be lucky if you find sturdy ready-made pieces that will fit that corner and your work requirements get fulfilled.
If your a do-it-your-selfer you can find websites that help you create a special piece for your home. In this way you save some money and you get a sense of accomplishment for having created the item yourself. Keep in mind that you may want to start with something small such as a lamp or other accessory. I have seen bigger projects that look very interesting and a bit challenging so make sure you don't get in over your head and waste money on materials you won't use.
