The most distinguishing characteristic of Victorian furniture is the use of wood. Only a small portion of the furniture employs the use of metal. Usually, people prefer the darker woods for their Victorian theme. The Dark mahogany with a reddish tint added is also a favorite of housewives and other homeowners. Other wood choices for Victorian furniture include black walnut, bog oak and rosewood. Just like the chairs, the cabinets, tables and beds are also large and very sophisticated.
Aside from the natural fibres detailed in the lines above, there exist a number of different materials for outdoor furniture which are entirely man-made.
The same hot iron and gluing method is used in repairing marquetry. Lay a piece of paper over the missing section and rub with a soft pencil to get an outline of the area. Cut the paper to the pattern and stick it to the replacement piece of wood. Cut the wood slightly larger than the pattern and rub down with glass-paper until the exact fit can be obtained. Stick it into place with cold wood glue. On many antique furniture pieces the marquetry tends to lift through age and using the warm iron technique will heat the glue and the raised piece can be gently pressed down back into position. If dust has been trapped under the lifted section, it should be removed, cleaned and re-stuck into position.
