I said, why spend so much for a door knob, it was just a knob. She reminded me of the agreement, and all I had to do was to shut up and go with it. We went to this hardware shop, and there were all sorts of door knobs. They came in different shapes, sizes, and designs, and also in different colors. They were all labeled as door furniture. She was about to pick one that looked like something from a sunken pirate ship, but I intervened when I lied that I saw something I liked and convinced her it would look good with the apartment. This trick has always saved me every time she had the urge to decorate and buy new furniture that would take up all my space.
What is their vision The next step is to see if your chosen manufacturer can match your vision for a good finished piece of furniture. They need to match your stylistic views, otherwise, you could end up with a piece of custom furniture that doesnt look how you wanted or doesnt match the existing look of your room. To answer this, discuss design inspiration with the manufacturer. Get them to show you what kinds of designs they are inspired by and what they aim to achieve. How do their views compare to yours? Make sure you are both a good fit when it comes to stylistic choices.
We get asked a lot about the wood and construction that is used in hotel furniture and how to tell low quality furniture from high quality furniture. In a lot of cases, you get what you pay for but with furniture prices going lower across the board from lower overseas labor rates, sometimes good items are not that much more expensive than lower quality furniture. Here I am going to tell you about low quality furniture and what to check for. We all know of the running joke about some manufacturers and their "easy" at home assembly with the hundreds of screws, boards and dowels and mostly undecipherable directions. These types of items, called RTA or ready to assemble are not built with quality in mind, most of the time, they are used because they are compact and if you are shipping the items in a shipping container you can get a lot of boxes stacked on top of each other. While these items may be suitable for home use, for long term hotel use they typically cannot stand the wear and tear of high volume usage. Over time, a lot of these designs sag, twist and contort and need to be replaced. So your first question to ask is, is the hotel furniture already assembled?
Some are designed purely as a way to add something good looking to the room rather than being functional. If you lead an active lifestyle or have kids, these pieces are not ideal at all because they could easily fall apart. On the other hand, a functional piece of furniture may not convey the image you were looking for. If you have spent a lot of money on a bespoke piece of furniture, shouldnt it look unique, elegant and special? What ever your view, its a good idea to ask what kinds of pieces your chosen manufacturer usually creates and whether this fits in with what you are looking to achieve. If it does, fantastic! However if not, it may be better to choose a different manufacturer or widen your search for one.
The term art deco did not really get used during the heyday of the actual design use. It was derived from a term that was coined in 1925, but did not really begin to be used until 1968 when it appeared in a book that was written at the time. It is something that is as one would say a word that came about because of an observation later on in time. It was while World War II was going on that the art deco movement came to a stop. Since so many people in the west were now able to get all of the items that were needed in order to take part in this art deco interior design movement. This was because as opposed to having a signature piece or design the items being used were being mass produced and at a fraction of the original cost, making it the design of every man, not just he elite and rich with small apartment furniture.
The concept behind rent-to-own is simple - rent-to-own companies rent items, usually furniture, appliances, electronics and computers, with the condition that the item will be owned by the renter if the term of rent is completed. Rent-to-own contracts are generally written for a 12-, 18- or 24-month term, with weekly, bi-weekly or monthly payments. Since the rent-to-own agreement is a lease, as opposed to a credit sale, no interest is charged and most stores do not require a credit check, making it a popular choice with people who have no or poor credit history.
