Benefits of Modular Furniture

The demand has risen for modular furniture as more and more people have started to opt for customization. The traditional furniture is designed keeping in mind company’s specification or a specific dimension as deemed fit by the designer. However, the scenario is completely different when it comes to modular furniture. The design of modular furniture is so flexible that it gives its customers the freedom to choose the desired size and module. Since, almost all the pieces are pre-made to fit rooms with different size and space, customization is not always required.

Earlier furniture were designed as one whole piece so moving it from one place to another required the help of more than just 2 hands. Additionally, it posed a serious problem for people who moved often as the transportation cost was quite high as well. However when modular furniture entered the scenario, it eased the problem of transportation as each module could easily be installed, dismantled and reassembled by following some easy instructions.

The designs of Modular Kitchens and modular wardrobes have evolved as per rising demands of the consumers. The flat, boring box shape has made way to the smooth line and flowing contours to blend well with the changing times. Engineered wood is the preferred material to built a modular furniture as it is both lightweight and strong at the same time.

According to one’s requirements, modular wardrobes can easily house more shelves than displayed in showroom. Those very same shelves can then easily be removed as they are installed with the turn of a screw-drive. The puzzle-like configuration on one hand helps the manufacturers meet the consumers demands, while on the other hand it lets the customer enjoy customization at any point of time with the same module without having to spend any extra penny for a new piece.

There are no real drawbacks in opting for a modular furniture. Given the benefits it offers over a traditional piece of furniture, modular furniture is the real deal. And, at MoBEL you will come across a wide array of modular furniture to suit your needs. So, are you ready to shop?

Dining Tables

Plates – Place the big dinner place in the centre, right in front of the guest’s chair

Side Plates – In case of American Setting, the side plate or bread plate is placed on the top left corner of the dinner plate with a knife on it. While in an English setting, the side plate is kept beside the dinner plate with the butter knife on top.

Cutlery: silverware or cutlery arrangement consists of arranging the 2 or 3 forks on the left of the dinner plate, the two knives and the spoon on the right of it and the dessert fork and the dessert spoon above the plate. The art of formal dinner silverware placement or usage is – ‘Outside to inside’. Hence, during the course of one’s meal, the person would use the cutlery placed outside or farthest from the plate first. The order of arrangement is as follows:

Left Of The Dinner Plate – The thee forks are the salad fork, the meal/ dinner fork and the fish fork (if required) with the salad fork being on the outside, farthest from the plate, the meal fork in between and the fish fork if any on the inside, beside the plate.

Right Of The Dinner Plate – Immediately to the right of the plate is the dinner knife, the butter knife following and the dinner spoon after that, placed on the outside.

Top The Plate – The dessert fork is placed right after the plate with the tines facing right (towards the water glass). The dessert spoon is placed over the fork facing left.

Incase Of Soup – Soup is provided at the beginning of the course where the soup bowl and plate is placed in the middle of the big plate. The soup spoon can be provided with it or if you want to place it beforehand, it should be on the right hand side of the plate on the extreme right.

Other Cutleries – In case you need to place a cocktail fork, it should be on the extreme right after the spoon / soup spoon. For extra tea spoons, these should be placed between the second knife and the spoon.

Glasses – Glasses or Stemware is placed at the top right corner of the dinner plate. For a formal full course dinner meal, there are three glasses – the water glass, the white wine glass and the red wine glass. The three glasses are placed in a triangular formation with the water glass placed at the top right of your dinner plate (just above the dinner knife), the white wine glass on its right and the wine glass just over these two.

dining set

Napkins – There are various spots to place the napkins. These include rolling it and placing it at the centre of the dinner place, outing it inside the glass, folding it and keeping it on the side plate or just placing it on the table to the left of the forks.

Now that you are all armed with the knowledge of Dining Table setting, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and invite the town over!

The secret is to focus on the ‘livable part’ of the décor. Hence go for two sofas facing each other or one sofa and two swivel chairs facing it to encourage interaction. The swivel chairs along with a few ottomans and stools here and there creates the comfortable feel as well as can be moved around to give a new look each time. Coffee tables and other occasional tables which are movable also create a congenital atmosphere since you know that there’s always a place nearby to keep a vase, a lamp or merely to keep your drink.

So what are you waiting for? Now that you know exactly how to go about choosing the furniture for your living room…go ahead and get it!
