Side Table

Furniture is the most essential part of a house. You cannot have a house without furniture and objects to create it. They make or break a home. Furniture is very important because not only is it very decorative, it is also utilitarian. You need furniture for seating, sleeping, storing possessions or eating on.

Furniture is usually found in wood, as they are the most elegant material to use. However, today, more and more people are leaning toward other materials that are more modern, such as metal or plastic. Wrought-iron is an increasingly popular material that is used for tables, beds or chairs.

Since furniture is a very thriving industry, people are searching for more pieces that are unique and original. No one is interested in having the generic bed or chair that everyone else has bought from the same furniture store. People want their houses to have the visual interest that can make guests look twice.

Eclectic and vintage furniture are very popular today. Flea markets and street side stores sell used goods that have an antique finish. Antique furniture, such as chests, drawers and wardrobes are very popular as they look sophisticated and elegant. Old world charm is a much sought after aesthetic, as compared to modernist minimalism.

This highly original side table resembles an avant garde backless garden bench. It is long and horizontal. It can hold coffee table books, flowers, vases and other curios. It is modern, kitschy and vintage. The vintage feel of the table comes from the feel and texture of the wood.

Another thing this teaches you is to branch out with furniture. Do not be afraid to use other pieces, like benches as tables and stools as footrests. Be inventive with the way you use your possessions, as this indicates a high level of originality. Originality is great for any home.
