There have been so many changes in the way we as humans view the furniture we have made or purchased. In prehistoric times, there are many examples of people who were very house proud. They made furniture with whatever materials they had at hand. There are examples of this from the Orkney Islands in Scotland, where people made beds and cabinets from stone, whalebone and turf.
In the ancient Egyptian times, the rich mainly had wooden furniture, these involved having wooden: chairs, tables, beds and chests for storage. They even went as far as to have wooden “pillows”. The poor, however had very basic furniture, due to the fact that they didn’t have the money to buy the materials or have the skills needed to manufacture the items of furniture.
The people in ancient Greece, also used wooden furniture in their everyday lives, they also introduced in chaise longues, which back then were wooden frames with rugs or blankets on top of them.
Jumping forward into the future, the 17th century was very elaborate with the furniture that the people who lived back in those times produced. The rich had furniture which was mainly manufactured with oak, walnut or mahogany wood. Manufacturing of furniture became more complex with the introduction of veneering, polishing and lacquering, which are some of the methods that we use today when we produce pieces of our reproduction furniture.
