Furniture – a small overview
Furniture – everyone knows them, everyone has them. But what really is the definition of “furniture”? And which furniture are suitable for which room? A small overview of the online furnishing house might help.
The concept ”furniture” is generally divisible in the product groups seats, tables, wardrobes and loungers. But also coat rails, room dividers, serving trolleys or acoustic panels belong to the big family of furniture. Each one of this furniture groups have numerous sub-categories.
Seats are mostly benches, barstools, office chairs, stools, armchairs, seat objects, sofas, chairs and cantilevers. Tables are dining tables, side tables, bistro tables, couch tables, standing tables, table trestles and desks.
A wardrobe can’t only be a simple wardrobe: Shelves, sideboards, chests of drawers and in the farthest sense even containers and other storage possibilities, they also count to the genre “furniture”. Loungers, beds and chaiselongues are also difficult to organise in to “one definitive” category, since a bed might also offer storage rooms and a chaiselongue might also be a chair. Defining furniture isn’t as easy as one might think.
From the Bauhaus style over postmodern design classics of the 60s and 70s up to contemporaneous furniture and interior design – a little organised and with a piece of design history you will find them all in the online shop.
Which piece of furniture suits which room?
In the kitchen it is important to have practical furniture, it should be easy to clean. Wipable and robust surfaces make it easier to work and they don’t only ensure a bit more fun while cooking, but also while cleaning it afterwards.
The living room should be comfortable.
For those of you with children or animals: you might need robust furniture: Modern textiles out of composite fibre combine the advantages of synthetic textiles and natural fabrics today – they are cosy, breathable and still easy to be cleaned and robust.
In the bedroom there are some rules to be considered, similar as in the living room: comfort and relaxing is how it should be, But it is very important to use modular furniture, if there isn’t that much of space. Many design furniture pieces for the bedroom have some practical functions: The Pile bed by Müller Möbelwerkstätten is e.g. stackable and the Müller Möbel Plane bed has an included bedside table.
In the office, which is often included in the bedroom in smaller flats, has one thing to be thought at: practical furniture are needed here. Foldable secretaries such as the Flatbox are space saving and there are legendary design furniture pieces for desks, containers and shelves. The right furniture will make it easier to keep things tidy and organized.
The children’s room has practically the same furniture as adult’s bedrooms: numerous design classics are available in children’s size. From the Panton Chair to the Nobody chair by Hay. It shoud be robust, and the best thing is: High class design furniture fulfil the highest quality demands in every case: The Kuschel-Kaninchen von Fatboy is wipable, the Vitra Hang it All has safe, round forms.
