According to Time magazine’s “Money” column, more people are using the holidays to purchase items for themselves. They dub this phenomenon “self-gifting”. Although at Louis Interiors we look forward to the opportunity to give back to our community and charitable causes, we see the benefit of taking this time of year to also make sure you get something you want, just for yourself.
After all, it’s often said that you can’t take care of others as well if you’ve neglected yourself. Self-care isn’t selfish. It’s actually the best way to allow giving more of yourself.
Quality custom furniture from Toronto is an excellent way to make sure you’re taking care of yourself. Dependable furniture helps you to relax and unwind after a difficult day. Getting enough rest and reducing stress is a tried and true way to make yourself better able to handle the needs of others.
Our handcrafted furniture is built to fit your exact needs, and we use sustainably-sourced materials whenever possible, which means the care you’re giving to yourself also spreads to the earth and benefits others.
In addition to providing yourself with a luxurious gift, custom made furniture also contributes to a wonderful holiday experience for friends and family who visit your home this season. If you’ve been looking for an excuse to improve your hosting abilities, look no further. Read on for our holiday hours and to find out other ways we’ve given back this year.
