When planning to purchase contemporary furniture, there are various modern interior furniture that includes; sofa beds, bookcases, sideboards, coffee tables and also stylish TV cabinets. Make sure that the furniture that you plan to buy for your home is comfortable, the colors should blend with each other and the designs should be modern and sleek. For a larger seating option, you should choose contemporary furniture that fit the configuration of your room and should come in different fabric options that may include suede, polyester, micro fiber or leather.
The next is the furniture from Europe which has its origin dating back to many centuries and therefore there is an influence from the English, Italian and the French styles. In the English style wood of many trees like the walnut and the oak are used extensively and the colors of the furniture are natural and dark. On the other hand in the Italian style you will find an influence of the Roman architecture and sculpture.
Now, let's shift our focus to English furniture styles. As we said before, usually dominant styles were named after monarchs. We see this in the Queen Anne, William and Mary or English Georgian (after King George) styles. However, during the mid 1700's there was a quiet revolution in design that changed how the furniture styles were named. They now were named after the designer.
Most popular plant fiber is rattan. To make furniture, we can only use the rattan skin, inside material of rattan, or can be combination both of them. Many kinds of rattan are categorized based on its origin, strength, and diameter size. One of popular rattan is Kalimantan rattan (Kalimantan is one of island in Indonesia). This rattan has 3mm - 6mm diameter, termite resistant, and high water resistant. It is usually used in whole because of its strength and its diameter quite small. But not all kinds of rattan are termite resistant and high water resistant like rattan Kalimantan. That is why if rattan especially rattan inside material is used, it must be protected with anti termite first.
By 1925, Gropius had designed a new campus for the Bauhaus School, and legend has it that 23 years old teacher Marcel Breuer had the assignment of designing furnishings for the teacher's residences. As a designer, he sought, to integrate the geometry and simplicity of the Bauhaus philosophy with a strong desire for human comfort. The resulting chair for the home of faculty member Wassily Kandinsky, an Abstract Expressionism painter, was made from tubular steel. This was the first time the material had been used for general interior furniture, but its light weight, affordability, and strength made it an ideal choice. Although the chair is void of any decoration, the tubular steel frame gives a very complicated and boxy effect. The original version had back and seat slings of canvas that kept the body from contact with the nickel plated frame. By 1930, however, it was produced with chrome plating, which did not tarnish, and leather was option for the slings.
