From the history of furniture: Chairs And Sofas Part 7

Figures 102 and 103, are solid, also with rich carving. The round cushions which often accompany these sofas are called " squabs," and in two of the sofas you may see that they are stationary; while in Figure 101 the places are left for them, but they are wanting. Ma hogany was originally brought from Jamaica, and though first known in 1595, its use was so slow and gradual that not till 1700 was it used with even the least degree of freedom. By the middle of the cen tury it was very popular, and in the hands of Chip pendale acquired an immense vogue. In 1753 more than five hundred thousand feet were sent to London from that island, according to Mr. Frederick Robinson, in his book on " English Furniture," and we know that it was on sale here in the form of planks and logs. This wood is divided in the trade into Spanish ma hogany and Honduras mahogany, or baywood. It is the Spanish wood which is the solid, heaAw, and splen didly coloured kind which we all so ardently admire, susceptible of a high polish, and often showing a beautiful waving curl in the grain, which enhances the value of the wood to such an extent that it is used only in the form of veneers.

According to Mr. Robinson: "The finest curl and figuring of the grain of woods is found in nearly all cases at that part of the tree where the division of the branches from the trunk commences. The best curl is found at the branching of two arms only, away from the trunk, this being less confused than that caused by the diver gence of several arms. A saw-cut made vertically across the tops of the two branching limbs down into the main trunk would exhibit that parting of the ways of the grain which is so valuable for the making of veneers."

Questions and answers

What is the best way to measure the space to fit a bench in?

Measure both the width and the depth of the space where you'd like to place a bench. The easiest way is to use a measuring tape. Hold the start of the tape down at the edge of the area, and let it run to the opposite edge. Make sure the tape is not diagonal, as otherwise you get a value larger than the reality. If the distance is larger than what you can stretch to, ask someone else to assist, or split what you need to measure up into multiple parts. You can do this by either holding the tape down partway through and continuing running it while letting the first end go, or by marking how far you have measured on the floor or wall, and reposition the tape to complete the measurement. If you want to avoid drawing on your floor, try putting down a pointy object like a screwdriver there instead. Don't forget to avoid dead places where the piece of furniture won't go like pipes. Also don't forget to measure the height of the space wherever the ceiling is uneven.

Our philosophy

We want every one of us to live comfortably even if they only have a small area they call home. We search the Internet for thousands of desks, cabinets, shelves, storage units, beds, tables, sofas and so on by size, to find just the right one for you to go next to the window and turn the room into a dressing corner, or to find that extra long bed that is still narrow enough to squeeze through the bedroom door. From the kitchen to the living room, don't live around furniture - buy furniture that lives with you.

Did you know? We also operate in many other countries. You can visit 45 cm deep benches in Ireland, 18 inch deep benches in Canada, 45 cm deep benches in Australia or 18 inch deep benches in the US.
