Default Furniture of today - opinions please

Furniture styles have changed dramatically over the years with urniture today taking a really unique and abstract design and style.
Just look at a company like Ikea - their furniture has a style which is unique to them, funky, retro and unsual with colour schemes that quite often you wouldnt put together yourself.
What are your opinions on how furniture has changed through the years? Do you prefer modern and creative or do you prefer the more traditional wooden styles?

I like Asian style furniture, especially Oriental furniture like Chinese antiques and reproduction furniture. Those usually bold painted designs feature reds, golds and black. Typically made of rosewood, love the smell.

Hi gekko HQ!
Yes this is a really nice style. I especially like antque chinese as it has alot of character and depth in the wood.
It also holds its value well. With most of it being handcrafted you are guaranteed to get some really unique pieces.

I prefer traditional ones. Oriental styles are preferable too. It offers a rustic look that is extremely nice to look at. and it goes well with several designs.

Traditional ones never go out of style. Even if new designs come out ever once in a while, traditional designs always have that special flair.

You can find pretty much everything nowadays, just need to check the quality all the time.
But even cheap furniture look great if you are thinking to replace it with new in couple of years.

Never heard about them before, how long are they on the market?
Or where I can read reviews about them?
