Here at Vinterior you can discover so many hidden treasures. From antique cabinetry to vintage mirrors and contemporary lighting, there is more choice than you can shake an 18h century walking stick at. Yet there are no items more fun and innovative for your home than the bespoke pieces we feature from artisan craftspeople and modern carpenters who bring new designs to our online marketplace. A bespoke bureau can make your study or at-home office unique to you. Take a look through our collection to see some of our beautiful bespoke bureaus.
What is a bespoke bureau?Bespoke items are those that have been made for an individual need or purpose. They can come in different sizes and shapes. Naturally, if you purchase a pre-owned bespoke bureau it won’t have been made for your needs, but it will still be unique and distinctive. It may also show signs of age and previous use which can add to their character and charm.
Many bespoke bureaus will often be made from the same materials as regular bureaus, i.e. various types of wood. The wood may be painted, or it may be protected and left to show off its rustic charm. The layout of the bureau could change drastically depending on its bespoke build as well. They may include more detail or may be sleek and minimalist.
Among the bureaus you will find here at Vinterior, many of them are bureaus that have been adapted for a different purpose – adding new drawers and shelving, repainting, adding new handles, etc. This is where the line between bespoke and upcycling blurs.
On the other hand there are many carpenters and independent furniture makers out there who will make you a bureau from scratch to your own brief. In this instance, you can often even specify your own dimensions and functionality – perfect if you want to put a bureau in a specific space such as a small office or even a hallway.
Benefits of a bespoke bureauThere are many benefits to choosing a bespoke piece of furniture. Bespoke items offer a uniqueness that cannot be rivalled. Many homes currently sport a range of mass-produced furniture, which make them all look very similar. By making a bespoke bureau a key item of your home, you're adding a sense of individuality.
Bespoke items come in many shapes, sizes, colours and styles. They don't conform to the usual bureau style. For this reason, you will be able to find a bureau that fits the style of your home perfectly, rather than have to change your current decor to fit around a classic bureau. This isn’t always the case with new pieces of furniture which can offset a theme and require other changes. The fluidity of bespoke designs means there will always be a design to fit your style.
One final benefit is that buying a bespoke bureau that is made from recycled materials will have a positive effect on the environment. By redirecting your furniture demand from mass-produced new items to one-of-a-kind handmade pieces that have had a previous life, you reduce your carbon footprint.
