Furniture is an integral part of any home and the ideology behind buying household furniture has changed over a period of time. These days' people don't just buy furniture for usability purposes only but also enhancing the overall decor of a home. There is a variety of furniture available and they come in all shapes, size, and finish. You can choose from the comforting finish of oak wood to the rugged look of pine. One of the radical changes in household furniture is the transformation from wood to plastic and PVC.
Experimentation with colors and your imagination will get you the perfect hand painted furniture for your home. With a palette of colors, the room will come alive. The best way of exploiting this furniture design idea, is getting your child involved in it. Also try spray paints for fun. Animal pictures, favorite cartoon characters, floral imprints or a decoupage of various shapes, let your reins down and allow the artist in you to come alive.
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.
As far as the designs are concerned, there is a wide range of options available with you. You have to choose the one that suits the overall decoration. It is recommended that you go for some sleek and stylish designs, and avoid something which is heavy and classy. This is because it is likely that you may have to change the position of the furniture quite frequently.
