My son is autistic and is very sensitive to certain fabrics.
I have to be very careful when I buy him clothes or the textures really upset him.
I recently decided to change out some of the furniture in my home. I really didn’t want to buy a couch that would be something that would upset my son. On a whim I decided to look into custom furniture. I wondered how much money it would be and was pleasantly surprised. It was about the same as buying from a high end department store. I got to talking with the custom builder and mentioned my son’s adverion to certain fabrics. My custom furniture builder was amazing at going back and forth with me. For my couch he sent fabric swatches in the mail so my son could touch them and pick the one he liked best. For my kitchen table and chairs, he made a chair that can rock back and forth since my son self soothes that way. I now have the guy making bed frames, headboards and even have plans for a coffee table. So far the furniture pieces look to be of the highest quality and they won’t upset my son. Those are the most important factors. I have gotten picture updates on what they look like and everything looks amazing. I think I am going to love all my new furniture pieces. I am going to need to have my sister over so she can see how amazing my house looks afterwards. I think my son is really going to like the new stuff better too.
