So what type of furniture are we discussing here? Examples are coffee tables and end tables, traditional hickory rocking chairs, chests, ottomans and commodes. Items of home furniture that are not classed as occasional furniture include small round display tables, free-standing globes, such as globe wine racks, and curio cabinets which are generally classed as accent pieces.
Many people will collect their home furniture curios and accent pieces throughout their life, while others will inherit them. However, many of the better cabinet makers and furniture stores also offer them to the discerning buyer who has a need for such pieces. Among these are Southwood, Stickley, Sherrill and American Craftsman, and if you feel there is a gap in your home that needs to be filled, then you could do worse than consult the websites of these firms and those like them.
When making a change in the room, removing and discarding the chair seems pointless, especially if you buy a high quality occasional chair. You need to the ability to use the chair in any room and have it blend in with ease.
When people think of the term 'occasional tables' they immediately think of coffee tables - as though there were no other type of occasional table. In fact, there are many different types ranging from drop-leaf and other extendable designs to those fitted with drawers, those designed to go with fire pits and lemonade stands to mention just a few of the possibilities.
