The Origin of Modern Furniture

 

In just the past 150 years, furniture has come a long way. In contrast to the ornate, heavy style of the 19th century, modern furniture gets its beauty from the fact that it is so sleek, light and functional. Early modernist thinkers were the first to conceive of this radical style of furniture that has since then become the standard for furniture design.

 

Classical Furniture and its Limits

 

Prior to the 20th century, most luxury furniture had to be painstakingly crafted by hand; therefore the value of a piece came from how many hours had been spent producing it. Embellishments like wood carvings or elaborately patterned upholstery were visible testaments to the time and money spent making the furniture. Back then, furniture was also very heavy and large because of the materials used and because it was intended for grand, spacious rooms.

 

In a way, luxury furniture of earlier centuries was not really meant for people to use. Because it was so expensive and difficult to make, classical chairs and tables were typically more decorative than practical. And by most testaments, early furniture is actually astonishingly uncomfortable.

 

Pushing the Boundaries of Design

 

Around the dawn of the 20th century, a lot of new perspectives were forming about how to better build the world we live in. Designers, chiefly architects and city planners, were neck-deep in this conversation and took a special interest in how to optimally design the objects with which people interact on a daily basis. A new emphasis was placed on functionality, simplicity and the role of industrialism.

 

The first pieces of what came to be called “modern” furniture were highly unorthodox at the time. They were minimal in form and were crafted from materials that seemed unconventional for furniture, such as steel. They lacked patterns or carvings and were much smaller than old furniture. They were built with ergonomic comfort in mind.

 

Designers tried to scale furniture back down to its basic functions, and from that function derive a suitable form. No more gratuitous decorations; just pure furniture. At the same time, they also wanted objects that were beautiful, not too simplified.

 

Wassily Chair

 

A good example of an early modern furniture piece is the Wassily Chair, a 1925 work by Bauhaus architect Marcel Breuer. The chair consists of steel tubing that has been bent to create the frame of the chair, across which are fastened strips of black canvas to form the seat, back and armrests. Rather than taking a hunk of wood and carving a chair from it, Breuer took simple shapes—tubes and sheets—and arranged them into a chair.

 

The result is a seat which almost seems to deconstruct before the eyes. Unlike anything made in the 19th century or prior, this architectural chair had open spaces, clean lines and a manufactured look. Yet it still maintained an aesthetic sensibility. For eight decades since its inception, the Wassily Chair has been regarded as an iconic piece of modern design.

 

With Marcel Breuer and other modernist designers such as Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld, furniture took on a new life. Gradually, the sleek and functional aesthetic of early modernists became the standard for furniture makers. Because of these pioneering thinkers, furniture was freed from its historical cage and became an art form that continues to explore new horizons. Today, Infurn is proud to offer reproductions of the 400 best works of modern furniture design.

 

INFURN: About Modern Furniture Design

 

When it comes to choosing furniture and décor, it’s possible to be fashionable and contemporary while also maintaining some personal tastes. Modern furniture exemplifies the very best of design, offering a look that is simultaneously simple and expressive. At INFURN, a company which builds and sells furniture inspired by the most iconic and enduring modern designs, their team appreciates how modern furniture can suit just about any home or office.

 

Defining the Modern

 

The design mantra, “form follows function,” is a characterization of one of the principles of the Bauhaus, a school of art, architecture and design that originated in Germany in the 1920’s. When Bauhaus members and other early 20th’s century designers invented the first prototypes of “modern” furniture, they sought three specific goals:

 

  1.       I.         The furniture should serve its purpose specifically and succinctly.
    Most furniture prior to modernism was not very ergonomic or practical. Modern designs have the user in mind and are thus more focused on functionality.
  2.      II.         The furniture should be easy to reproduce.
    Before the industrial revolution, every piece of furniture had to be crafted by hand. The 20th century saw the advancement of several high-tech manufacturing techniques; so designers started making furniture that could be reproduced in a straightforward fashion, and on a mass scale.  More people would have access to furniture and makers would be encouraged to create optimal, long-lasting designs. 
  3.    III.         The furniture should utilize materials to create interest.
    Rather than decorating the furniture with beautiful but ultimately unnecessary details, modern designers made their furniture attractive by applying and manipulating basic materials. The beauty comes from the individual natures of the materials, the contrasts between them, the forms they take and the ways they are arranged.

 

Following these guidelines, the great early designers, including Le Corbusier, Breuer, Magistretti, Rietveld and the truly great husband and wife team – Charles and Ray Eames, created some of the most striking and forward-thinking pieces of furniture. Today, their works are iconic pieces of art that still have not lost their power to charm and shock the viewer. All over the world, design-minded individuals and businesses continue to use modern furniture to bring sophistication and elegance to their living and working spaces.

 

INFURN – Inspired furniture

 

This company began with three men who shared a passion for masterpieces of modern design. While sitting around one day and talking about their collections, they realized that they shared a common struggle as well. Many of their favorite furniture designs were simply unavailable on the market or could only be purchased from niche sellers for very high prices. They concluded that with the right business plan and a dedicated team, they could make these pieces available to more people.

 

In 2008 they founded INFURN, a company that is wholly committed to the reproduction and distribution of the classic icons of modern furniture. Originally serving just the European market, they have since expanded their customer base across 20 countries worldwide and have accumulated over 100,000 satisfied customers. With just four short years of hard work, this company has risen to the top.

 

As an online furniture retailer, INFURN’s website presents a beautiful catalog with over 400 selected designs from the 20th and 21st centuries. The collection represents what the owners believe to be the best of modern furniture and décor.

 

Purchasing Furniture

 

Each item in the company’s catalog is inspired by a seminal work of design and is available to customers with a number of customization options. Depending on the product, customers may choose between different types of wood and different colors of leather, fabric or plastic.

 

Once an order is placed, the team of professional builders and assemblers gets to work creating the piece. Because they construct everything in-house rather than ordering from outside manufacturers, the company eliminates middle men and is able to offer reasonable pricing on even the most luxurious furniture. 

 

Unlike many businesses that make reproduction furniture, INFURN is totally devoted to the integrity of every item in its collection. Therefore they use only the highest quality materials and subject every piece to the strictest quality control inspections. Their products are exact, sturdy, and guaranteed to look sharp.

 

Allowing a few weeks for construction, the order then ships from the company’s facilities straight to the customer’s address. They provide this delivery service 100% free to consumers.

 

Guaranteed Satisfaction

 

This company understands that purchasing furniture over the Internet is something that people are sometimes hesitant to do. It’s hard to determine whether or not an item will be to your liking since you cannot inspect in it person. That’s why INFURN guarantees its products are made to the highest standards of material and construction. To protect that promise, they offer a few warranty options.

 

All items are covered by a 5-year full warranty for problems caused by manufacturing defects. If a customer is not pleased with a purchase for other reasons, they may return it within one week of the delivery date (item must be unused, undamaged, in the original packaging). Damages to the furniture caused by delivery processes should be thoroughly documented (before and after unpacking) so that the shippers can be held accountable and the customer can receive a refund. The company offers these options because they are committed to satisfying customers’ desires for great furniture and décor.

The styles available through this online furniture retailer range from plush leather sofas to retro plastic “egg” chairs to sleek metal or glass tables.
