While most people grew up in a household that was furnished with traditional furniture, some of which had been passed down for generations, a growing number of people are making the switch to cardboard furniture. As the quality of cardboard pieces as increased dramatically in recent years, modern furniture designers and manufacturers have changed the way that society looks at furniture that is made out of nontraditional products, such as cardboard, plywood and plastics. Cardboard chairs and cardboard tables are particularly useful for young people who relocate frequently. Let us take a closer look at the type of person that cardboard furniture is designed for, the main differences between modern furniture and traditional furniture and some of the most attractive and striking cardboard tables and cardboard chairs that are currently on the market.
How to Identify Genuine Fine Furniture. First check the legs. No cabinet maker would ever fashion a fabulous table from solid mahogany and then put some screw-on legs under it! The legs will also be solid - and made from the same wood as the table is built from. Check beneath the table: all cheap mass-producers will veneer the top of the table but not the underside. If the wood at the bottom and the top look different, then you are being conned. Check the joints: high quality furniture should be made using proper joints: mortise and tenon for rails and dovetail joints for drawers and cabinet sides - absolutely not using commercial plastic joining pieces or metal or plastic corner joints, and certainly not just screwed or nailed together. Lift a chair upside down and examine it: high quality chairs will have a canvas on the bottom, or at the very least proper webbing and springs on the seats to offer support and comfort. Cheap furniture will have a plywood base and a slab of foam! Quality furniture, whether in the form of fine living bedroom furniture or quality living room furniture, can make an ordinary room look good and raise your esteem in the eyes of your visitors. Learn how to distinguish between the mass-production furniture stores and the quality furniture manufacturers such as Stickley, Southwood, American Craftsman and Sherrill.
As mentioned, organic hardwood and naturally made furniture would last a lot longer than synthetics because organic materials are aged and strengthened naturally. Most hard woods are very long-lasting and are compacted very strongly, producing very beautiful furniture when processed. Most composites and synthetic materials break down easily and depend on chemicals to hold them together. In this aspect, organic furniture wins over non-organic furniture again. Because organic bedroom furniture will last a lifetime with you, you find yourself earning money from not buying any other new solid wood furniture for your bedroom or home for a long time.
There are people who report having lots of rashes and other skin ailments in areas that are most commonly in contact with solid wood furniture like chairs, tables and beds. Allergic reactions from the chemicals that are in wooden furniture are not a foreign sight. The chemicals and other preservatives added to the wood of non-organic furniture come in contact with the person using it, an allergic reaction may happen, or worse, the chemical may poison the person by seeping into his skin to his bloodstream. Getting organic bedroom furniture with no chemicals would eliminate the danger of this happening to you and your family.
