How to Build Your Own Heel Shoe Chair

Some shoe chair manufacturers give customers an option to design or build their own chair. There are various options available to the creative designer and each manufacturer is a little different. This is where it is beneficial to search the Internet to find and compare the companies offering this shoe chair option. It is also wise to take notes. There are several sites that give the customer three places on the shoe chair where they can add a fabric and color choice. The three parts of this chair are: the insole, the shoe, and color of the trim.  Others offer only two choices, usually the insole and front part of the heel, and the shoe itself. Another option available is a color choice for the place on the chair where you put your back /head against and a small area for your bottom, as well as a color choice for the rest of the chair. (This option gives the illusion of a shoe with the inside being a different color).

Some manufacturers have 10 to 20 different color options and fabric styles for one to choose from. One manufacture offers over 60 choices, some of which have a $10-$40 dolar increase per chair due to the fabric options of leatherette and micro fiber. One has to remember that all shoe chairs are not created equally. Chairs are constructed out of different material some metal some wood, and have different types of padding. Some manufacturers use cushions and springs where others use foam. Search before you buy is the best motto to have when designing your own shoe chair.  There are some chairs whose padding, the cushioning part, a guaranteed for life. Whereas others may have a warranty of 30 days. Prices can vary any anywhere from $225 dollars to $385 dollars.

As mentioned before throughout the blog pay close attention to shipping charges. There are manufacturers who offer free shipping anywhere inside the US Continental states. Many however, in order to get a shipping rate, one first as the has to put in a zip code in order to get a price. Also, because you have designed your own chair manufacturers will very seldom, if at all, take your chair back. So it is very important to look at the manufacturers policies and procedures regarding returns. In this case, one would be looking more at construction and quality in the manner your chair was made. If your chair has a problem with one of these matters it’s best to contact the manufacturer right away by phone, having all your pertinent data at hand, such as the order number, and model number of the chair. Pay very close attention to the amount of time you have the to send the chair back to the manufacturer.  This is where a lot of people make a grave mistake.

They put off looking at the chair to see if there’s anything wrong with it, and or they take too much time  sending their chair back to where they bought it, thus voiding the warranty. Then they are stuck with a custom chair that they designed but was built wrong by the manufacturer. Some of the areas to make note of when searching for the best manufacturer are: cost, design of chair, available sections of the shoe chair to make the fabric or color change, size of chair, shipping cost, chair cushion warranty, color and design options, & guarantee. Some of the sites that we checked out that offer the customer the option to design their own shoe chair were: sexy furnishings, funky sofa, RMR furniture, mod outdoor furniture, and high heel shoe chair.

Some sites may be the same manufacturer because the website design looks exactly the same. One needs to pay close attention as various options may be different such as shipping charges, warranty, etc. That is why we highly recommend if one is serious about designing a personalized chair to make a chart and take notes about the available options prior to  purchase. Designing one’s own chair can be a fun experience we hope this information helps!
