Commissioning Furniture from Afid
Commissioning a piece of unique furniture from Afid Design
could not be simpler. All of the pieces produced are individually

terms of design and budget. As a result of this meeting a design
brief will be drawn up and a project deadline established. At
this stage consideration will be given to which materials and

to be situated.
2 _ Design concepts - the next stage involves a presentation
of design concepts with discussions on how the project should
develop. The concepts will usually take the form of sketches

see the design evolving.
4 _ Delivery and payment - Once the piece is completed delivery
will be arranged. At this stage the balance of payment will
