With no tools, you're going to be looking at RE-DOING something that's laying around your house (or a relative's house). Old furniture is great, because it already looks crappy, so whatever you do to it, it'll look better!
Modern furniture design emerged after WWI, and, was contemporary for its time. The modern design movement introduced furniture that was functional instead of overly ornate and visually heavy. It combined new materials, new manufacturing methods, and the philosophies of the Werkbund and Bauhaus schools. Furniture from this time period is known as Modern Classics. In the 1970s, designers replaced the old materials used in modern furniture and adopted injection molding machines and natural materials.
Few things are more eye catching in a room than an attractively designed piece of furniture. Unlike flat pack furniture which is commonly found, custom built furniture can allow a unique theme to be created.
Oak and pine were the most popular woods of choice. Chairs would often have split spindles, bulbous Spanish carved feet, and rush seats. Chests, large cupboards, and trestle tables were embellished with Flemish scrolls, ornately carved panels, and ornamental twists. These design elements made the massive Jacobean pieces appear very formal and stately.
