This is the wreckage of caskets made of ebony, inlaid with ivory, malachite and turquoise. Ancients Egyptians are also ‘sponsored’ beds and chairs. The first furniture created by man, was tough and very functional. Only the Egyptian pharaohs could afford to sit in a chair decorated with gold plates and complex carvings.
Much later chair, table and bed was born wardrobe. It happened in the middle of the XVIII century in the Gothic castles of feudal Europe. The prototype served his chest-the chest, who was trying to pull up an abundance of stored things and turned into a closet, just taking one of the main places in the hierarchy of the furniture. Very easy to use for different purposes, a case was the founder of the furniture ‘Dynasty’: it later emerged buffet with glass doors, when we have learned to pour a large area glass, and then appeared and a bookcase. As time went on, there were new styles of architecture and interior design, and each of them or modify existing pieces of furniture, or creating something entirely new.
