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.

Functionality is also important, especially if the living space is small. Here, every piece of furniture should be used as efficiently as possible.

If you like the furniture externally, you need to consider its functionality from the point of view of your specific situation. For example, if the apartment is large, and you are planning to buy several wardrobes, then you can not really find fault with the volume of each separate storage of things. You can take bespoke wooden coffee tables for you in https://cosywood.co.uk/coffee-tables/
If it doesn't interest you or you honestly don't like it, don't waste your time.

It is true that furniture styles have been changed over the years. Different wood designs are now used for furniture. People love furniture that is unique and beautiful. I personally prefer new styles of furniture especially furniture with pyrography art. Pyrography is the art of burning images into wood surfaces. To complete these projects artist uses different tools like wood burning tools, pens, and pen tips to achieve lines, shading, and other beginner techniques.

Furniture of pyrography art is not easy to make because the artist has to pay full attention to the work to make it beautiful otherwise you will see burn marks on wood that look messy. And then they have to find how to clean wood burning tips that is also difficult to handle. That is why i like new designs of furniture because it requires hard work and the final look is amazing

If we talk about furniture styles in the past 12 to 15 years, they were great and perfect for the house, but today's styles are more modern, comfortable, and appropriate for today's lifestyle and reputation.
