Let us not make a mistake here. Most retro furniture that you get today in the market place is not actually old furniture. It is made presently, but is designed just to look like the furniture that was popular in the 40's 50's and 60's etc times. You will have dinner tables and chairs, chaise lounges, fireplaces with mantelpieces, carpets and rugs, grandfather clocks and those pesky but adorable canary clocks, everything that will take our grandparents down Nostalgiaville. Even the colors are the bright ones used in those times, and not the placid colors people prefer nowadays. And you will find that back in your retro furniture time, people wanted their furniture to make sure it stood up and take notice when visitors came in. Today's retro furniture tries to achieve the same thing. But in reality it never quite makes it. There is no substitute for the real old thing and you will notice this difference when you touch an authentic piece.
The cultural pinnacle of furniture was arguably the eighteenth century. By this time artisans were allowed to have free reign in designing their own furniture. This resulted in them becoming exceedingly wealthy. Many used their new wealth to set up their own workshops. This had the effect of improving creativity even more. Many objects from this period are chased after by antiques collectors.
*Use light colors in your bedroom. As if you have bright colors in your bedroom, your eyes are going to be drawn all over the place, making it difficult to relax. You will find it really difficult to concentrate on your partner. Light colors make your home more romantic and relaxed.
The name "chifforobe" (sometimes spelled "chifferobe") owes its history to two words: the French chiffonier, a tall piece of furniture containing drawers, and the Old French "warderobe" or wardrobe,a closed movable closet, and having a space inside in which clothing can be hung from pegs or hooks. A chifforobe may also be fitted with shelves or removable drawers and trays. The chifforobe is, in fact, a combination of both the chiffonier and wardrobe, for it is fitted with drawers and an open space in which clothes can hang. The hanging clothes usually run the entire height of the piece, flanked by the separate compartment housing a vertical stack of at least three drawers.
