There are several companies that offer modern furniture at very affordable prices. The reason is that they are manufactured in quantity on an assembly line. There are some companies, which manufacture individual parts, and later, assemble them to make different types of home and office furniture. This is known as modular furniture and is normally available at considerably lower prices as compared to single-piece furniture. Such affordable furniture is readily available in local furniture stores.
A well chosen sofa set can make your house look well organized and beautiful. There are a variety of sofas offered by the furniture stores and you can have a pick from the most contemporary to the most traditional. Apart from the look, you may have to consider the size, usage, color, fabric and comfort level of the sofa. This article will give you a brief outline of all these aspects.
The Empire style furniture is massive, in grand scale and very masculine. It has a severe, heavy, masculine look with no carving. The wood carving which is very common in the previous styles of Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI is generally replaced with wood veneers polished to a high sheen. To equalize the bareness of wood veneer, metal gilts are used to adorn the furniture. A good clue to identifying the Empire style is the vulgar use of ormolu mounts. Ormolus are gilt-metal decorations usually in different decorative motifs. These are usually drawn from antique sources or patriotic inspiration. There are motifs derived from Egyptian archeology. Falcon, sphinxes, cobras, obelisks, winged lions are just some of these Egyptian inspired decorations. Napoleon's fascination with his conquest of Egypt and later on the excavation of ruins by the French Egyptologists created so much interest in everything related to Egypt.
Today's furniture is made from unconventional substances, like rattan cane, which is quite inexpensive in comparison with traditional wood. Rattan cane can be molded into different patterns, which may be used to create innovative designs. A rattan cane sofa set and an 'end table' may be priced at less than USD 3,000, whereas a dinner set may be available for less than USD 2,000. Wicker wood is also another inexpensive material used for manufacturing cheap modern furniture. However, it is soft and doesn't look attractive unless it is polished or finished in an efficient manner.
