Home Renovation Hacks to Transform Your HouseBy Clark Rubber | 17th December, 2020
For the interior designer in all of us, it can be easy to get lost in the beautiful furnishings and one-of-a-kind finishes found across Instagram and Pinterest. For so long, these products have been too expensive and too exclusive to consider for everyday styling. But now, with Clark Rubber’s new made-to-order furnishings service, this dream can become a reality, for less.
The service, offered in partnership with Australia’s own Warwick Fabrics and Dunlop Foams, sees this trio of brands working together and with each individual customer to create the custom finish of their dreams. Customers can hand-select everything from the design, shape, stitching, foam, fabric and detailing of the piece. To date, the teams have seen everything from bespoke day beds, dining chairs and plush cushions created.
Clark Rubber spoke with two interior designers who used this service to create the ultimate inspiration for their custom at-home furnishings.
Nicole Rosenberg of Liberty Interiors put the range to the test, with the challenge of updating her outdoor entertaining area ahead of Summer. The result? A fully customised outdoor setting made to suit her home, for a fraction of the traditional price. You too can create this beautiful look with the range – choosing from Dunlop Foams’ extensive range of durable, weather-proof foams and the beautiful, soft fabrics from Warwick Fabrics.
Also impressed with the range, Gina Ciancio of Style Curator worked closely with the team to upgrade her tired spare bedroom into a cosy, stylish haven. Her tips on updating your space with custom pieces?
“Buying off the shelf restricts you to certain sizes and materials. Using a custom service on the other hand, means you can create something to fit your exact space.”
“If you can imagine it, the team can most likely create it. Popular areas of the home to create custom cushions are bench seats, outdoor cushions, oversized floor cushions, custom bedheads and window seats.” Gina Ciancio.
“A tired window bench could become the feature of a room with a fresh lick of paint, a custom bench seat and some new scatter cushions. Weathered outdoor furniture can be given a new lease on life with newly made cushions. Hard seating areas around the home can also be made to feel cosy with their own custom cushions.” Gina Ciancio.
If you’re new to custom furnishings and want the best bang for your buck, Gina recommends starting small, where customising cushions for your sofa, setting a new colour palette or restyling your bed can make a world of difference.
What’s more – the affordability of the service has seen customers turn to the range to update their home for different seasons, with custom Christmas-themed cushions and colourful outdoor day beds being wheeled out for the warm summer months.
