Furniture buyers would benefit from understanding the difference between an interior design professional and an interior decorator. A designer usually has a college degree, while a decorator may or may not have a formal education. Interior design professionals who work with a specific London designer furniture company, for instance, usually have a formal design education and have ample experience working with that company's specific type of designer furnishings.
Next, consider the function of the piece. The interior furniture needs to function in several ways. It should fit well within the room that you want to place it in, in the matter of size. Crowding a room with too much makes it overwhelming. Second, it needs to provide for enough seating for your family. If you have children, look for furniture that is stain guarded and easy to take care of as well. The function of the pieces of furniture should also help to enhance the items such as wall coverings, carpeting and other elements that you already have. Or, you'll need to replace these.
One trend that started in interior furniture during this time was the 'matched look'. Every piece of furniture in a room had to be matching and well coordinated. This is the time when the furniture sets for different rooms came into vogue. The sets were mostly in wood that was bright and light and the look adopted was modern and sleek. Buying a bedroom set that was readily adopted by other previously purchased furniture became a hot favorite for people buying new homes. The sets usually included a double bed, two night tables on either side and/or a dressing table that was pre-fitted with a mirror.
"In retrospect, it was the most important school since Louis XIV had codified art in the Institut de France and Napoleon I had united art and science in the Polytechnique."
During the English Georgian period, one of the most famous cabinetmakers, Thomas Chippendale, began his career. Cabinetmakers were skilled in crafting fine furnishings, what we would call high-end quality. The interesting thing about Chippendale was that he was not an inventor. Instead, he took the best designs from other countries and adapted them into his own style. He was greatly influenced by French Rococo, Chinese and Gothic styles. He is best known for his great chair designs and because of these classic designs his name endures.
