Furniture is an important aspect of most peoples lives. Whether you’re sat on a chair, lying on a bed or working at a desk it’s hard to go a day without the need for some sort of furniture item. We store our belongings in them, we use them for dining, we use them for pleasure and of course for various forms of work. Dining tables, sideboards, sofas, office desks, bar stools, wardrobes, drawers, coffee tables and chairs… these are just some of the many items that help us in everyday life.
In it’s very nature a piece of furniture is designed to provide a function. You define a requirement and then choose a design that will provide a suitable solution to that need. If you need to store lever arch files then you will probably choose some type of cabinet or like wise if you need something to eat from then a dining table is the best choice. This is all very obvious stuff. Now the question is what is the difference between normal furniture and designer furniture. For sure the price is generally different. But why?
A great piece of furniture starts with the imagination of it’s creator. A good designer will explore ideas and develop a solution to a furniture need. A great designer will go one step further. They will turn a functional piece of furniture design into a work of art. Through a careful arrangement of shapes and lines a form can be created that goes beyond function. Think of the iconic Lounge chair designed by Eames in 1956. This is more than just a chair. Yes it is comfortable, but more importantly it is stunning. A perfect combination of materials and aesthetic appeal.
Designer furniture should be engaging, thought provoking, be pleasing on the eye and it should impress. Every detail should work in harmony, all materials carefully chosen and its function should be embedded without sacrifice of aesthetic beauty. Designer furniture should be an investment. You are buying a piece of furniture that excites you, it is more than just a functioning object. It is meant to inspire, to generate emotion and stir conversation. If a dining table can become the talking point of a dinner party or an office desk be a place that inspires you to work then it is successful. It is more than just furniture.

Nowadays, it is no longer to buy perferct matching furniture. Actually, it is no need to make your tables, shelves, chairs and other furniture be the same color or wood tone in order to make up a cohesive and well-designed room. Of course, there are some things to consider before choosing the items that are suitable for you and your lovely house.
Find Out What You Are Interested in: If you are interested in a particular piece of furniture while checking out a sale, take time to really investigate. You are decorating your house based on personal taste, so just follow your heart.
Set a Theme: Just because your furniture doesn’t have to match doesn’t mean there can’t be some common element to bring each item together.This means that you could choose a general color scheme or feel for your room & apartment. Or your could have a certain time period in mind and go with mainly midcentury or modern items.
Remade it: When you are looking the furnitures, pay more attention to the shape of the items rather than the color or finish- those things can be changed. In fact, if you find an item whose design catch your eyes, get it! You can remake it to match the rest of your decoration.
Mixing and matching furniture pieces can make your rooms more of a personal creation than a scene from a home store window. But knowing where to start can be tricky. Just have a general idea in mind, know your personal taste, and add in some finishing touches to make sure your room looks cohesive rather than just thrown together.

Metal furniture has recently become an interesting topic in facility planning and design.
Once considered too utilitarian in style, contract metal furniture has developed a fresh surge in popularity for a variety of reasons including durability and cleanability. While wood furniture will always remain a popular option, here are the top five reasons to consider metal furniture for your group living, healthcare or camp environments:
1.Believe it or not, it has great style! Metal furniture manufacturers have worked hard to create furniture that combines both form and function. Natural colors that are reminiscent of wood and laminate drawer faces can transform a basic piece of metal furniture into something indistinguishable from wood furniture aesthetically.
2.Cleanability and pest management. There is overwhelming scientific evidence that metal furniture does not deter bed bugs any better than wood furniture, but metal furniture does allow easier clean up and tolerates pest fighting chemicals better than wood due to its less absorbent surface. Metal furniture has bends, folds and board areas that still offer pests like bed bugs a place to hide so it is by no means bed bug or pest proof but with proper inspection and maintenance metal furniture can be a useful component of a pest management plan.
3.It’s got spirit & style! While most metal furniture is designed to mimic or blend in with wood furniture, metal can also be a great statement as part of a team or school spirit color design. Standard primary color options or custom match paints are easy to achieve on metal furniture since metal does not the variations and graining of wood. Painted metal surfaces are consistent easy to standardize in for any color scheme.
4.Extreme durability. Metal furniture is a work horse of the contract furniture market. Metal furniture can tolerate extreme use which makes it perfect for any group living environment – especially dormitory and transient housing applications. Metal beds and bunk beds are durable and cleanable. Metal case pieces can include underbed storage, night stands, and chests of drawers. Metal’s finishes are well-sealed so with proper care metal beds and case pieces can withstand punctures, drink rings and general heavy use. What’s more, if the finish ever gets damaged do-it-yourself patch kits can create a like-new look in very little time.
5.It’s affordable. While good-quality metal furniture might have a higher sticker price than wood equivalents, you can expect metal furniture to last 10 – 15 years or longer. Many metal furniture collections have warranties that will cover normal use for ten years or more. Metal furniture may require a larger up-front investment but the replacement cycle is less frequent.
Metal furniture is more and more used in restaurants, cafes, hotels and other public places ，for the dining and leisure environment to create a highly durable, comfortable living space.
