Apartments that need decorating may be limited in size but never forget they also have height and this is something that can be very successfully utilized when it comes to furnishings such as an entertainment centre, or a desk for your home office equipment. Drop leaf tables, or tables which have additional leaves that drop into the middle of a dining table, have been around for generations. There are now many dining tables on the market which can be fitted against a wall, with a drop-down leaf that can be released when not in use. Conversely, another innovation is the dining table into which two chairs can be slotted when not in use - certainly my choice if I was in the position where I needed to conserve space.
The term art deco did not really get used during the heyday of the actual design use. It was derived from a term that was coined in 1925, but did not really begin to be used until 1968 when it appeared in a book that was written at the time. It is something that is as one would say a word that came about because of an observation later on in time.
While theres a lot of resources out there for decorating todays larger homes, theres very little about how to decorate an apartment or incorporate your furniture into it. Lets face it, many people are downsizing these days and even a 1,000 square foot apartment can seem pretty small after living in a house.
After you figured out what your essential activities are, you are ready to start going furniture shopping. Try to find pieces of furniture that serve two uses. Storage ottomans are a terrific example, because you can sit on them, use them as a coffee table, and also store things out of sight. Wall shelves and containers are very useful because you may be tight on shelf space and youre certainly tight on floor space. If you are buying a bed, seriously consider the kinds of beds but you can store things under. Finally, try to go for height -- floor-to-ceiling shelving has made the difference in many small apartments and dorm rooms.
There are other things you need to keep in mind when you are shopping around for rental furniture as well. Each company has their own policies on rental charges, and you should always find out what these charges are before to agree to any rental. Be wary of smaller rental companies, because they dont get the kind of business national companies do, they may charge you higher rental rates. Smaller companies may also lure you into their stores with gimmicks like they dont check your credit, but dont be fooled by this. Most rental companies do not check your credit, because if you dont pay, they simply come to your apartment and take the furniture back.
It was while World War II was going on that the art deco movement came to a stop. Since so many people in the west were now able to get all of the items that were needed in order to take part in this art deco interior design movement. This was because as opposed to having a signature piece or design the items being used were being mass produced and at a fraction of the original cost, making it the design of every man, not just he elite and rich with small apartment furniture.
