The types & varieties of furniture that I can work with seem endless. The following should serve as a guide only as differing types of furniture and soft furnishings may require different specialised materials and techniques.
Broadly speaking: All types of furnitures historically fall into 2 categories:
Traditional: This for me defines all types of furniture and furnishings that were manufactured before 1950
Modern: indicates all types of furniture and furnishings that were produced after 1950
I can also apply modern upholstery to traditional frames if your budget is limited,
or where it is economically viable I am happy to recover modern furniture.
So whats so important about the year 1950? Well that was a period where there were many advances in the use of technology, materials and construction of furniture , Legislation on the use of materials in the construction and supply of furniture came later in 1988 with the introduction of The Furniture & Furnishings (Fire)(Saftey) Regulations 1988.
