Our process involves four important steps:
- Analyzing Objectives
Bayne likes to discuss with his clients all aspects of a piece’s future. He doesn’t just focus on the functionality, but also on its location, the way the sun will hit, other colors in the room, etc. Each of these components of design and use are critical to his decisions on how to create the object – from the wood species, to how the grain will move, what finishes to use and dozens of other seemingly inconsequential decisions that make Bayne’s Quality Custom Furniture piece the showpieces they are.
That unique approach to creative design is what makes Bayne’s woodworking shop different. It also makes its portfolio different.
“A valued client once asked me to build an elegant staircase as part of an extensive millwork project,” Bayne recalls. “I recommended that he contact a stair builder. The client reemphasized his vision and elaborated that he wanted a staircase for the ages and it was the right project for us. So we added to our proposal a staircase building on his vision.” (The finished masterpiece can be viewed on this website.)
Another client wanted Bayne’s to build a gazebo. “I asked her why she wanted a furniture/cabinet-making shop for the job,” recalls Bayne. “She replied, ‘Because I like your quality.’”
Most people think that materials mandate the finishes, but in fact it is the other way around. Your vision for the final product colors every decision we make – from picking the materials and finish to how the piece is structured.
No two projects are the same to us. We strive to provide meaningful input on your vision. We do that by developing a complete understanding of what you want and how you see it. To that vision we offer our experience, expertise and wisdom.
Designing a product requires a number of steps. We have become experts in this process, which can afford you the comfort of knowing your interests are being taken care of at every turn.
Every project, no matter whether it’s a desk or a library, or everything in between, must start with a vision. That idea, big or small, needs to be translated to paper. From there, we can work with you to create a finished product.
We have experience working with fully formed ideas for projects and those ideas that are less developed. We can help you to develop those ideas, making suggestions and offering ideas that can sharpen your view for the project or to personalize it to match your desires.
If you have an independent design form or interior designer in place, we can work with them to fully develop your idea into action. We also work with architects and construction teams to address any issues that may arise.
Our ability to communicate effectively with these other professionals while still being able to work successfully with you to make your vision a reality is one of our hallmarks.
Bayne and his team carefully craft each piece. Using the information obtained in the first three phases, they make the vision and creativity of the design phase a reality. The select the best materials, worrying about matching grains and other subtle issues. Using an array of equipment in their shop in Baltimore, they create the pieces. Once built, the process of finishing the work to meet color specifications occurs.
At Bayne’s Quality Custom Furniture, this four-step process is time-tested and ensures that each piece they create is an heirloom that matches or exceeds the original vision expressed by the owner.
