The furniture of the Middle Ages was usually heavy, oak , and ornamented with carved designs. Great efforts from individuals, governments, and companies has led to the manufacturing of products with higher sustainability known as Ecodesign This new line of furniture is based on environmentally friendly design. 48 Most commonly, quality furniture is made out of hardwood which is made from oak, maple, mahogany, teak, walnut, cherry and birch.
The tables are usually wood, although some quality composite-wood tables are available. Dining room sets may include the chairs and table as a package, or you can mix and match these as you please. These tables are usually much smaller, either square, rectangle or round in shape, and are wood or metal with a glass top.
22 Other furniture types in ancient Egypt include tables, which are heavily represented in art, but almost nonexistent as preserved items perhaps because they were placed outside tombs rather than within, 23 as well as beds and storage chests. 26 Wood was shaped by carving, steam treatment, and the lathe, and furniture is known to have been decorated with ivory, tortoise shell, glass, gold or other precious materials. Roman furniture was based heavily on Greek furniture, in style and construction.
