Furniture has been around for thousands of years. There is evidence that chairs existed in many parts of the world, and that they were being used in the Mediterranean at least as far back as 2 B.C. Some of the earliest bedroom furniture sets belonged to the Egyptians, who had high beds with steps leading up to them. The beds were decorated, and had a lot of pillows, and were surrounded by curtains.
Today, furniture sets have grown and evolved into a wide assortment of items for every room in the home. Living room furniture, dining room furniture, lamps, kitchen tables and bedroom furniture sets can be found in a variety of styles, colors and prices. Like so many other items, furniture can now be purchased from a retail store or online.
Furniture is made from different materials, and many people like leather furniture. One of the beauties of buying leather furniture is that each piece can reflect the individual personality and style of the owner. Leather furniture is easy to care for, as it does not absorb spills the way other fabrics do. Leather is also comfortable because it can stretch and it molds to the natural curves of the body, but does not lose its shape.
