Furnishing Your Home?

By: Kip Goldhammer
Home is the place where you seek comfort and relaxation. In fact, comfort is so synonymous to home that you even have a phrase - "Feel at home".
There are a lot of things that contribute to the comfort and tranquility of a home. And home furnishings play an important part. Be it the sofas, beds, tables, chairs or cupboards, all contribute towards making home a better place to live in. Besides comfort, home furnishings can also enhance the look of your home substantially. This will not only make you feel good (visual comfort) but will also help you earn appreciation from your friends who visit you. And that is when you really get maximum return on the time and money that you have spent in selecting and buying your home furniture.
A lot of planning and effort goes into buying home furniture that would really provide comfort, beautify your home and be cost-effective at the same time. You need to look for information on furniture types. You need to check the suitability of furniture with respect to the overall décor of your home. You need to know where the best deals are. And you also need to enhance your knowledge on furniture, in general and also with respect to the latest trends.
Can anyone explain what makes a simple log table more appealing to many of us than a finely carved mahogany table? Is it merely a matter of style or taste? To be certain, some log or rustic furniture pieces do not blend well with every decorating theme, and few of us would place an Adirondack chair with a Chippendale kneehole desk, but in many settings log furniture has no equal.
In the traditional sense, most furniture is made from wood (which is nothing more than logs that have been "tamed"). However, log furniture is the antithesis of most conventional furniture. Traditional furniture makers favor pristine wood planks without knots or blemishes, while log furniture builders emphasize knots, diseased patches and even tree bark.
Oftentimes conventional furniture will feature graceful lines and delicate legs, while log designs boast thick, powerful verticals and cross members. Log furniture makers often rely on hand tools more than machines. The drawknife and spokeshave are essential tools used to peel logs and make tenons. Handsaws, chisels, hatchets and other hand tools are found in every log furniture crafter's workshop.
Log furniture is practical and it stirs our appreciation of human genius and resourcefulness. Unlike conventional mass-produced furniture, log furniture is particularly distinctive in that no two pieces look the same. The uniqueness of the logs and slabs ensure that every piece presents a singular appearance. Log furniture is a form of natural, hand-made freeform art.
