Since the buyer gets to dictate the creation of custom made furniture, they can also call for the use of innovative techniques and raw materials in their furniture which further enhances its uniqueness. Marble, onyx, bamboo, rich brocades or anything else that strike their fancy and is popular on the international design scene can be appropriated from the right sources for an exquisite piece of furniture.
A recent study conducted by the Center for Injury Research and Policy of The Research Institute at Nationwide Childrens Hospital found that from 1990-2007 an average of nearly 15,000 children younger than 18 years of age visited emergency departments annually for injuries received from falling furniture and furniture tip-overs.
Old gold leaf antiques can be cleaned with water containing a few drops of ammonia. New gold leaf can be bought in plain sheets, or in transfers that have a tissue backing. The transfer sheets are much easier to use than the plain sheets. When applying gold leaf to a restored area, make sure that the surface is clean and dry. Paint the base with Japan gold size and leave it to get 'tacky'. Lay the sheets in place, slightly overlapping at the edges; rub them down carefully, following the direction of the overlap, with a clean cotton cloth until the edges blend evenly together. The knack is to lay the sheets on the surface when the size has reached the correct degree of 'tackiness'. If the size is too wet, the leaf crinkles; if it is too dry, the leaf will not stick.
