As of today, there are plenty of different materials that are used for furniture manufacturing. All of them have their pluses and minuses – both in terms of functionality and in terms of style. Below, you will see a list of ten most popular furniture material types, as well as some tips to integrating these materials into your environment.
Wood is definitely one of the most popular furniture materials and it has been the leading material in manufacture for ages. For centuries now, anything from storage units to tables has been made of wood, which makes its integration into the interior simple as ABC.
Cane is another material type that has been used for centuries. Today, it is relatively less common, yet it is still possible to find plenty of light and stylish furniture solutions made of cane. Note, though, that it is interior demanding and requires matching décor.
MDF is a budget friendly solution for modern homes. It has the same basic look as wood, but it is a way cheaper material. Sure, it is not as durable as wood, but it is definitely one of the dominant materials in today’s furniture market.
Another way to produce stylish MDF furniture is to cover it with a thick shiny lacquer finish. The models look bright and stylish. They combine elegance and simplicity, and they are most suitable for modern interiors.
Tempered glass is another modern approach to interior decoration. Few furniture items will be made of glass exclusively; yet, plenty of tables, storage units and even computer desks may feature glass as the primary manufacturing material.
Acryl looks like glass, but is a cheaper option. At the same time, it is even more durable – even in comparison to finest quality safety glass, which has a very impressive durability.
Stainless steel, chrome, metal and other materials of the kind dominate in modern, hi tech interiors. Similar to glass, few furniture items will be made of metal exclusively – but many of them can have metal inserts – both functional and decorative ones.
One of the most budget options, which looks better outside than inside. Inside, even the highest quality ABS plastic usually looks plain.
Leather – both faux and genuine one – is widely used for soft furniture upholstery. Depending on your interior theme, it can be a part of contemporary or classic interiors.
Fabric is a softer and more practical material used for the upholstery – especially for chairs. Plus, it is usually cheaper.
