That is a major reason for organizing furniture events. To keep the customer aware of new designs and concepts, and occasionally to reward them for their business with reduced prices and discounts on selected products. It is combination of a thank you and a form of advertising. Local craft fairs are another form of furniture event. These enable local people (or sometimes not so local!) to display their handiwork. Local furniture makers can show off their skills, and this can be a good platform for locals to persuade city showrooms to sell their products. Not only that, but furniture distribution centers may be seeking new sources for their furniture. Amish furniture, for example, is often hand-crafted by individuals in their own homes or workshops. The Amish then transport each piece to a central distribution center from which it is delivered to the furniture retailer, showroom or directly to the customer. A large proportion of Amish furniture made in this way is crafted to order. The customer can choose a piece from a showroom display or a catalog. The order is passed to the distribution center and passed onto individual craftsmen and women who then hand make it.
Many are unaware that since most furniture are made from synthetic materials, they have the greatest potential to actually harm both the body and the environment. Plastics, metals and some hardwood pieces often contain chemicals that help preserve and keep the integrity of the furniture. Not doing this would jeopardize the business, and so furniture manufacturers incorporate preservative materials to their products to increase their longevity in warehouses and stores. For example, some solid wood furniture is imbibed with pesticide and/or fungicides that kill insects or molds that may invade and destroy the furniture. Some have preservatives like Formaldehyde as for plastic or steel fixtures, especially those with color, their paints may contain lead. All these pose a significant health risk to the users. Some disintegrate and turn into vapour, but this ultimately causes harm too. Inhaling the fumes from chemicals in the furniture will cause disorders and disease. Whats more is that these chemicals do not break down easily. They stay with your solid wood furniture until the day you dispose of them. When you dispose of them, the environment then takes the damages. The chemicals harm and pollute the environment.
