Summer days are upon us. That hot, humid, sticky air of June in Wisconsin has arrived, and we don’t mind it one bit.
After months of being cooped up during this pandemic (while the rainy, chilly days of spring passed through), we couldn’t be more grateful for warm weather and the chance to start living life outdoors.
If you’re anything like us, you took time over the last couple of months to clean and freshen up your outdoor furniture for the season. (If you haven’t done so yet, check out our May blog post with helpful tips and tricks for preparing your patio.)
Or maybe you took this time out to deep clean your home and in the process, realized that it is time for an upgrade to your living spaces. If so, you’ve come to the right place at just the right time, because we are excited to announce an addition to our showroom furniture line-up, M|T Furniture Company.
M|T Furniture Company, while new to Lakeside Living Design, has been around for quite some time, and features high-quality custom-built upholstered furniture handmade in High Point, North Carolina.
We love a good American-made product, and we are obsessed with this line. Our guess is that you will be too!
M|T Furniture Company’s Unique Features
Each piece of furniture from M|T Furniture Company is not only built; it is hand-crafted.
The frames are made of kiln-dried hardwood or hardwood laminate, the wood is meticulously sanded, and then finishes are hand-applied in the color and texture that matches your decor.
To the frames, 8-way hand-tied springs (the best in seat quality and comfort) are added. While some manufacturers consider this method archaic, M|T Furniture Company knows that there is a reason this old-fashioned technique has stood the test of time… simply because it works!
All fabrics (including the Sunbrella, Crypton, and leather options available) are hand-cut by M|T’s artisans. With over 1200 selections in stock, they are certain to have a style that matches your personal taste, and will take their time cutting each individual piece to ensure that quality, custom look that you will adore.
Because each piece of furniture is custom-made, no two have the exact same dimensions, and therefore, all seat cushions are carefully hand-cut to identically match the furniture they will be resting on. While the basic cushions are made of high-density polyurethane foam, several cushion upgrades are also available, such as the Millenium design shown here:
Back cushions are available on all pieces of M|T furniture, other than tight-back styles. These back cushions are made of Comfort Dream-Microdenier Fiber encased in channeled down-proof ticking to keep fibers from settling to the bottom. This unique design is created to cradle and support the user all at the same time.
Finally, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention that M|T Furniture Company warrants the majority of the product components for the life of the piece…how many companies can say that nowadays?
M|T Furniture Company firmly believes that quality takes time, and they are willing to put in as much time as necessary to ensure a top-notch product that will shine for years to come. (Can you see why we decided to start carrying their products??)
