That is a major reason for organizing furniture events. To keep the customer aware of new designs and concepts, and occasionally to reward them for their business with reduced prices and discounts on selected products. It is combination of a thank you and a form of advertising. Local craft fairs are another form of furniture event. These enable local people (or sometimes not so local!) to display their handiwork. Local furniture makers can show off their skills, and this can be a good platform for locals to persuade city showrooms to sell their products. Not only that, but furniture distribution centers may be seeking new sources for their furniture. Amish furniture, for example, is often hand-crafted by individuals in their own homes or workshops. The Amish then transport each piece to a central distribution center from which it is delivered to the furniture retailer, showroom or directly to the customer. A large proportion of Amish furniture made in this way is crafted to order. The customer can choose a piece from a showroom display or a catalog. The order is passed to the distribution center and passed onto individual craftsmen and women who then hand make it.
Wood and How it is Jointed. Choosing the correct wood is an art in itself, and fashioning an elegant piece of furniture using traditional carpentry joints that is as sturdy and strong as you require it to be is a sign of a master-craftsman. This is the quality only attainable with handmade furniture, no matter where it is crafted. Britain, the USA and Scandinavia are noted for the high quality of their craftsmanship, and France, Germany and Holland have all had their moments in furniture history. Today it is predominantly the first mentioned three that provide most of the higher-end handmade furniture. It is difficult to beat the craftsmanship of American furniture firms such The Custom Shoppe, American Craftsman and Stickley, while Southwood are without doubt the premier producer of reproduction furniture in the USA. There are many Amish furniture retailers that market products that have been handmade by individual craftsmen, using the traditional techniques passed down from father to son. The old jointing techniques are the best because they have been devised over time to provide the strongest and most enduring joint between two or more pieces of wood.
Contemporary Chinese furniture is simple and graceful in design with sleek, clean lines and elegant proportions. Chinese furniture has risen in popularity in the west because its subtle sophistication and timeless designs fit perfectly in either traditional or contemporary style homes. With contemporary Chinese furniture, even small pieces are not only beautiful to look at but are highly functional. In many homes with space at a premium, contemporary Chinese furniture can serve a dual purpose, such as a wooden trunk which can double up as a side table with storage. Traditional Chinese furniture designs and antique Chinese furniture can be highly ornate with exquisite craftsmanship. Some have elaborate woodcarvings or are painted with colourful scenes of rural life, ancient battles, dragon myths or mountain top monasteries. A room decorated in a Chinese style should be kept simple and uncluttered to bring peace, harmony and balance to the space. Colours typically used in Chinese furniture include bold red, black and flashes of gold. Traditional influences such as robust shiny lacquered surfaces, stressed edging and brass hinges and handles can also been found in contemporary style furniture. Chinese style designs are simple, attractive and timeless. Whether you choose to decorate your home in a contemporary Chinese or traditional style, Chinese furniture makes a bold statement. With each piece a work of art in its own right, Chinese furniture is a wonderful way to show off your creativity and give added wow factor to your home.
Identify your Color Scheme There is no doubt that the functionality of the furniture is important but at the same time aesthetics are also similarly important. The look and feel of the office must be soothing and comfortable to your eyes. Visual appeal of the furniture is as important as all of the other issues. Visual appeal of the furniture changes the entire look of the office. The furniture should be coordinated nice with the other office decor. You can furnish your office with a range of modern designs, bright to matte colors and modern to vintage styles.
