Miracle in transparent glass furniture!

Question of long history

As long as the humankind exists so long it changes the world in order to live in more comfortable conditions. Looking through the whole history of the world we can conclude that the sense of life – the possibility to live in better conditions. According to this it is very interesting to observe the evolution of things in domestic use, especially of furniture. It seems that all had commenced since the cave-man had begun to use the boulder as a chair while sitting in front of the fire! May be it was the first chair, and then there was the first table, the first wardrobe etc. In thousands of years the furniture had changed ultimately. As had changed the materials used in production so as had changed the construction. However it is very surprising fact that only by the end of XX century it had been manufactured from such materials as plastic and glass! Before the time mentioned in particular it was made from wood. It is OK with plastic because it was created only at the end of last century, but what about the glass? Mankind has been producing it since long ago! Marvelous art compositions had been made from glass, not only bottles and cups! Possibly, it depends on our logics, our sensation of world and our world-outlook! We have wished to have the furniture be fabulously fantastic, easy and transparent! This is what we get from having glass furniture. It is amazing material! It at once attracts our attention like a sparkling diamond in deep darkness. Refracting the light ray and reflecting it at once, glass furniture fills with air any interior.  Coffee table, TV stand or computer desk no matter what kind of furniture the glass wares perfectly fits it, moreover it adds sound style and visually expands the surrounding area!

Glass furniture features:

Glass furniture has exquisite design and becomes the core of interior at once! Glass –ecologically clear and safe material, making furniture units more elegant and easy like and air! Today it takes strong positions in any home area!  Due to its quality, the glass can successfully compete with other materials in production of TV stands’ shelves, tables and chairs! The glass is very noble and precious material.  It features special capabilities of making even simple shapes and lines very graceful and rich-looking! We are absorbed by the world of infinite space. At the same time glass furniture is quite durable to hold loadings up to 220.5 lb. Up to present time the glass was only complementary material, but now it can be used as a main construction material while producing furniture elements!

Tables – is such a simple question like it seemed before?

What we need to know about tables? Although there are innumerable uses for tables, they all share one thing in common: a surface, typically flat and horizontal, that may be used for working on or eating from. Beyond this there are probably more kinds of tables than there are types of any other class of furniture. Varieties of construction aside, four-legged tables have predominated ever since ancient Egypt, although Greek and Roman tables were often slab-sided, in the manner of altars. The other main defining characteristic of a table is its height, and this has risen with changes in seating; tables from ancient Rome being low enough to serve low couches, while more recent types are made higher to accommodate chairs. The earliest Western tables were simple boards supported on trestles erected when needed for eating. The contemporary so-called trestle table is descended from these but is usually fixed, and its trestles are most typically single fixed standards rather than the collapsible medieval kind. Long, narrow trestle-type tables descended from those used for monastic dining are known as refectory tables. An equally common medieval type used for dining was made with four legs, connected at their feet by sturdy stretchers. Such early dining tables known as “joined tables” were large and massive, and were often furnished with draw-leaves to further increase their capacity. By Tudor times (the 16th century), the legs of these dining tables were often formed with large, bulbous turnings, and eventually gave rise to single or double pedestal tables. A parallel development can be seen in the manufacture of tables designed to be situated along or against a wall rather than in the center of a room. Console tables (made with brackets and no back legs), pier tables (so-named because they were originally designed to occupy the wall space between windows), side tables, and hall tables are all examples of this type. Tables designed and used for specific purposes other than dining include varieties such as artist’s and drafting tables (typified by sloping and often adjustable tops), billiard tables, card tables (often made round to accommodate more easily an extra player, and also often made with a folding top in order to occupy less space when not being used), communion tables, dressing tables (typically furnished with a mirror), library tables, and tea tables — the latter being usually thought of as a round table supported on a single pedestal with crossed or tripod feet at chair height for taking tea, in distinction to a coffee table whose use may indeed be for taking coffee, but whose position in front of a couch or sofa, and its consequent lower height, is of greater importance. An equally important class of tables is that defined by location, which largely determines the table’s size and shape, such as bedside tables, night tables, side and end tables, and sofa tables. Much ingenuity has been used to construct tables that may be expanded or reduced in size, most usually for dining, by means of extra leaves, drop leaves, folding leaves, and draw leaves, and many of these may be classified by the particular construction technique involved (such as gate-leg, Pembroke, tilt-top, harvest, and hunt tables), but for the most part these do not represent usage types. Similarly, many tables have been furnished with a variety of drawers and shelves, and even, in the case of library tables, with cupboards, to the point that they might often be more correctly classified as different types of furniture, such as dressers, sideboards, and desks (or writing tables).
