What is the best colour for shelves?

The colour scheme in your home can be a result of necessity, but it has considerable effect on how you feel in your room. The two things to consider for everything colour is balance and associations. Balance simply means that the colours in your home should ideally be coordinated, so that the space looks like a unit instead of a random collection of elements. Usual techniques to achieve this are considering a colour wheel, and going for colours that are either quite close to each other (colours that are only different in lightness or intensity do go together, but slight variations in the actual tone can also be fine), or quite far or on different thirds (for example, red-green-blue). Associations with and emotions connected to colours are equally important. In all likelihood these emotions are cultural and learnt, which means that they can be very different in different cultures or for different people. The associations are even often contradictory, making it even more difficult to use them as a guide. Blue is often connected to productivity, but also stability, calmness and even sadness. Green is clearly the colour of nature, and is said to evoke safety, luck and envy (though in other cultures this latter is yellow instead). Pink is thought to bring kindness, nurturing, romance and calmness, while it was the choice for boys' and men's clothes over many decades. Red is considered to be the colour of friendship, willpower, leadership, desire and anger - a very wide range of emotions. But it is clear that in nature, it signals danger or importance, so it should be put next to a neutral colour to allow the brain to rest. These associations point in so many different directions that these guidelines all seem to boil down to just this: pause and see what the colour means for you.

How can I find shelves by width, height and length?

Finding shelves in search engines on the Internet by measurements is not easy as search engines are best at finding text only. Also, when searching for shelves to fit a given space, somewhat shallower pieces would also suit. Even if some webshops allow searching for shelves by size, checking many webshops at the same time is time-consuming. Furniture Ferret to the rescue! We scan many outlets on the web and index tens of thousands of products so you are able to get the one that is just perfect.

How much space is needed in front of shelves?

In order for shelves to be usable, it requires more space on the floorplan than its size. You have to be able to access it and stand in front of it to access papers and other items kept on shelves, and if it has doors, it should be possible to open them fully. Double doors will need an additional depth of half of the width of the piece, while in general, you should leave 40-60 cm in front of shelves for access. This means, for example, that shelves that is 30 cm deep needs at least 70 cm space. Fortunately, this extra room does not need to be exclusive: access spaces of two or more pieces of furniture can overlap as long as this does not disrupt the flow and lead to people bumping into each other in, for example, an office setting.

From the history of furniture: Lustre Ware Part 2

Among the names which may be found on pieces of silver lustre are, " Warburton," with a heart impressed; "Wilson," " Bailey and Harvey," " Spode," " Wood,"

13 193 "Minton," "J. E. Wileman," "Hariey," "Ralph Salt," — this was the same man that made Staffordshire fig ures, — "Wood and Caldwell," the Mayer star, and the letter " R," which is supposed to stand for Ridgway. But by far the larger number are entirely unmarked.

The process of making silver lustre was a simple one. The ware, when glazed, was dipped into a bath contain ing platinic chloride and dilute spirits of tar. It was allowed to dry, and was then baked for eight to twelve hours in a kiln at 1,200 F., when the organic matter burned away, leaving a surface of metallic platinum, lustrous and fine. Sometimes the platinum was mixed with the materials of the glaze and applied directly, and those pieces which have the lightest and most silvery appearance were coated with oxide of plati num produced with sal ammoniac, and fired at a Ioav heat.

Various bodies were used. Wedgwood chose a dark red clay, others a dead white porcelain, and I have seen also a yellowish bod}', and common gray clay. Origi nally the pieces, particularly tea-sets, bowls, and mugs, were lustred inside as well as out, for silver lustre was made for those aaIio wished to Own sih'er but could not afford it. In the course of time, when electroplating cheapened metal ware, and the lustre ware no longer deceived, the interior of vessels was coated with a white slip or porcelain glaze and the lustre was confined to the outside. This had the merit, also, of reducing the cost. The pottery body is of coloured earthenware, red or yellow, made very thick in such pieces as tea or coffee pots, to withstand the heat, while other pieces are nearly as delicate as porcelain.
