During the Middle Ages, chests were most commonly used to store items. It was not until the Renaissance that cabinets with an architectonic construction were made. At the end of the 17th century, the cabinet was also used as a decorative item. Those days, cabinets with drawers became a convenient and popular piece of furniture. Techniques became more and more refined, for instance, nailed joints made way for dovetail joints. It is logical that, according to the latest fashion, decorations on furniture such as marble inlay, rich ormolu fittings, the use of exotic wood types (such as rosewood), inlay technique with copper, tortoise shell and ebony, became ever more valuable.
Small pieces of home and office furniture are extremely decorative and really complete the interior. The book stand, for instance, serves to have a good look at a large book. The tea trolley and cabinet can be used as convenient storage facilities for crockery and cutlery. The revolving bookcase speaks for itself. Night stands were first produced in the second half of the 18th century. Serving trays were used to display delicious treats. It is likely that the first copies were made of tin and wood, but people also started importing richly decorated, varnished copies from the East during the 17th century. Tea drinking became fashionable and this caused the demand for trays to soar. Stunning boxers to store items (letters, cutlery and tea) became popular during the reign of king George II (1727-1760).
