Furniture can be used as a form of artistic design and is considered decorative art. In addition to furniture's usual functional role, it can also serve a symbolic or religious purpose in many cases. We do supply domestic furniture, which aims to create a specific feel to a room as well as serve a purpose, such as clocks and lighting. Furniture can be made from many materials, including metal, plastic, and wood. Furniture can be made using a variety of woodworking joints which often reflect the local culture.
Furniture has been a huge part of fashion for many years. Evidence of furniture has been found from the Neolithic Period and a little later in antiquity in the form of paintings, such as the wall Murals, also examples have been retrieved from tombs in Egypt and modern day Turkey.
Throughout the many years, styles and designs have continued to evolve to the present day, which gives us a huge variety of designs that we can always take ideas from and move back to at any time. There is always a demand for new and exciting styles in every aspect of fashion today, including furniture design. For centuries fashions use the influence of old designs and adapt them so that they are more modern and in keeping with the times.
Modern furniture is furniture that has been designed after the nineteenth century; this period changed drastically, and is now less rustic. Although, the rustic style furniture is still greatly loved and used today.
When we needed to think up new shapes and colours, materials such as moulded plastics were used to experiment with. This was mainly used in Asian and African cultures. The Japanese are well known for their simplicity, large planes of colour and contrasting use of pattern. Many cultures like these are also used when experimenting with new styles and designs.
Oak furniture is now widely used in home design because it is hardwearing, a beautiful colour and it is very versatile where it can be used for both modern and traditional designs. Oak has been one of the most popular woods for a long time. Others that are becoming more popular are Ash, Hardwood and Pine.
