We use the term 'Features' to categorise stand alone products that are designed and made to set a tone or context apart from the rest of the finishes. We often talk about finishes in this context, "Rustic", "Industrial" or "Scandinavian" all set a scene and identify a brand for viewers to identify with. Car manufacturers have long sought to identify their brand with recognisable values like Dependable, Innovative or Sensible. Architects and interior designers work through the same considerations and when applying recycled features can add brand identifiers like: Respect - for what came before, Comfort - for the easy natural appeal and feel of shaped timber and Innovation - for having commissioned bespoke solutions to best fit your needs. There are many others, each of us thankfully have different and complex needs and values, hence the benefit of custom design and manufacture.
Features shouldn't dominate a room, but should be at least generate a subconscious nod to the values that matter to you, as demonstrated in the image below of a complex staircase that we did for a client who appreciated the technical skill and complexity of fitting things together without showing fixings but also valued the simplicity of letting timber be timber, stone stone etc. Essentially the Architect on this job painted a highly technical modern masterpiece with a Pallet of Natural Materials
