Product Information
Consumers are familiar with choosing fabric and even arm styles on upholstered furniture, but the end user's personal touch has been largely missing from casegoods manufacturing. That’s the challenge A.R.T. Furniture set out to tackle with its new Artiste program. The result: fine furniture at attainable price points with thousands of potential combinations of styles, materials, details and finishes. Using a kiosk at participating retailers’ store, or working directly from a dedicated website or app, consumers virtually “build” their piece by choosing the dimensions, style, materials, amenities, finishes, fabrics, and hardware that will make the design uniquely their own. When the customer is completely satisfied with his or her choices, the design is sent to the world’s most technically advanced furniture manufacturing facility where it is built with robotic precision and attention to detail. The final step is a return to tradition with a series of hand-applied finish techniques. The entire process, from initial design to delivery, takes only eight weeks, a remarkable turnaround for a fully custom-build piece of furniture. An easy-to-use web tool keeps the consumer informed about the progress of his or her design. The finished piece is shipped to the consumer’s local A.R.T. retailer for delivery. All Artiste casegoods are made with double interior box case construction and ¾” solid back panels which guarantees consistent case stability for life. All drawers are English dovetail with a clear, silky finish and silent, soft close, under-mount guides. In terms of consumer safety, each piece of Artiste furniture is certified at the Gold level by the GreenGuard testing lab, ensuring strict indoor air quality standards.
