People's demand for furniture and the variety of demand are increasing. Batch furniture can only meet people's requirements for quantity. Large-volume furniture is difficult to meet due to the special needs of space . After all, the design and production of large-scale furniture is for the public. It can only cater to most people and space in terms of form and demand. Under this market environment trend, the development of custom furniture is very good.
