Furniture scores a top position in our list of necessities. Home owners are always on the look out for new and affordable pieces of furniture. Sometimes you get a great bargain while other times, you end up spending more than you possibly should have. Like everything else, there is a time when you can get a piece of furniture at a much lesser price, than its actual value. The only trick is to find out when!
In today's market place you can find a plethora of reproduced chairs, desks, tables, storage units, lighting, and accessories inspired by the industrial era, but if you truly want an industrial look, try searching for original items that can be found in salvage yards, flea markets and junk shops, and re-purpose them, or use them as is to add a bit of character and drama to a space. Many of today's manufacturers are designing pieces that really bring back the industrial era and while some of these items are pricey, they are great for adding historical character in today's spaces.
A bedroom could be furnished very simply with the best comfortable bed which is the most essential piece of furniture in that space. Other pieces may include a bed frame, a wardrobe, dressing table and chair, side table and lamps. Further accessories could include a mirror, carpet and even a chest of drawers.
The peak period for Federal furniture was said to be between the 1780s and the 1820s. The areas that were most captivated by this style were mostly the large port cities on the Eastern coastline such as New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Charleston, and Baltimore. The reason for this was primarily the collection of affluent wealthy families in these cities that had close ties to European culture. And after all, it was this culture and the English furniture designs, in particular of Sheraton and Hepplewhite, that influenced it. Sheraton and Hepplewhite also emerged as influential styles around the same time period. Inadvertently, these cities also became the production and manufacturing centers of this furniture.
