Carve and chisel to make your house a castle!

When you go into your friend’s home and see that perfect centre table or that beautiful and well craft cabinet in the kitchen, what is the first thought that comes to your mind?

When you are in a restaurant, and you see a dining table with a handsome set of chairs, what do you make a note of? Why do these small pieces of beauty capture your heart and mind? 

This is simply because these small pieces of beauty and craftsmanship are exactly what helps turn your house into a home. Every apartment when bought newly is just a cement structure with walls for separation between rooms.

However, various home décor pieces and furniture help bring in life into the structure. If these are really such an important part of the home décor, does that mean there are criteria to select the best furniture for your house?

Better still, are there any well established and trusted brands that have been successful in the past years to bring the transformation to a house?

Read on, and you will understand

Furniture was originally introduced as a utility product which was used to sit, lie down, keep things, etc. Initially introduced in stone form, furniture has evolved over many decades to become what it is seen and known as today.

Ancient Romans and Egyptians have been known to have used stone and even metal for their thrones, tables and other furnishings in the palaces.

Once the modern civilisation started developing, the material used for furniture turned into wood, and now Bakelite and hard plastic are also being used for furnishings.

Different kinds of furniture available

Furniture has been classified on the basis of two important factors:

  1. The material used to make the furniture
  2. The place in the house where the furniture is supposed to be kept

On the basis of the raw material used for making the furniture, there are numerous types of furniture ranging from the usual wooden furniture to others such as plastic, bamboo, particleboard, MDF, plywood, etc.

Each material mentioned has its own unique quality that is advantageous when used to make a certain type of furniture.

For example, making a chair out of hardwood guarantees more quality than that made of plywood, because, the weight that plywood can carry is much less when compared to hardwood.

However, when it is required to make a seating board (as part of a sofa), plywood is used as it gives weightless support to the existing hardwood structure of the sofa. This gives a complementary effect.

When the furniture is classified on the basis of their position inside the house they may be listed as follows:

  • Living room furniture – This includes sofa, chairs, futons, stools, coffee table, TV cabinet, shoe rack,    key stand, coat stand, etc.

  • Kitchen furniture – Countertop, storage cupboards, kitchen cabinets, Dining table, chairs, counter stools, towel and plate racks, etc.

  • Bedroom furniture – Bed, futon, lampshades, study table, dressing table, dress closet, book cabinets, chest of draws, etc.

  • Bathroom – Commode, bathtub, curtain rods, bathroom cabinets, towel racks, utility closet, washbasin, etc.

The furniture mentioned above is only a few of the many different kinds of furniture that is available for the different parts of the house.

As mentioned earlier in this article, furniture also has brands that have stayed in the industry for a very long time and brands that have become trustworthy and consumer favourites.

Some of the new brands that have joined the race are now following a new form of the business altogether.

Unlike the olden day model of brick and mortar type of shops, where there are actual physical shops, the new players have gone digital for their and distribution purposes.

Gone are the days when you have to slog your way and time through a furniture shop and another and keep going around until you get the perfect furniture for yourself.

Nowadays, furniture shopping is done through e-commerce websites like pepperfry, Flipkart, etc.

The furniture is shown through pictures taken from different angles and posted as a carousel for the consumers to see.

This is then bought by consumes by surfing through their favourite websites. Brick and mortar type shops have not totally died out.

They are just reducing these days as digitisation is taking its hold on the world. So who are these exciting brands that have become the top choices for consumers when it comes to furniture purchase?
