Picket & Rail springs a surprise on the local furniture industry and its consumers with its launch of Singapore’s widest range of Modern Classics made better. To date, the company has been renowned for its unique range of American-style, all-wood home furnishings and accessories. In a monumental move that has proved Picket & Rail versatile, it vastly widens its repertoire with Modern Classics—first grade replicas of iconic designs of internationally-acclaimed, world-celebrated architects and furniture designers from the early 1900s! The Modern Classics Gallery expands its collection, as the trend matures. The stores observe an increasing number of educated buyers displaying a spirit of intellectualism, or who desire such historic pieces because it defines them thus. Designers and connoisseurs desire to own them as a tribute to the greats and to behold their legacy. Others purchase modern classic replicas because to them, the pieces are not merely furniture; they are a slice of history. Since design patents have expired, replicas are certainly more affordable, making them accessible to middle-income earners. Among them, there is little resistance towards replicas; it is commonplace to own replicas of iconic paintings and sculptures. Furniture is no different. A most certain factor the people behind the Modern Classics bank on, however, is this simple fact: classics never go out of style. This has been true of the decades past and will undoubtedly prove to be true of the future. Furniture with history sings in perfect tune with Picket & Rail’s “thinking people’s furniture” vision and wholehearted commitment.
Furniture designs that have shaped 20th century design continue to endure and be very recognizable, thanks to film and television. These iconic, celebrated designs still fit into today’s decor world as naturally and utterly as they did mid-20th century.
An easy way to immediately add thoughtful flair to your bedroom is the addition of furniture at the foot of your bed. Don’t worry, it won’t clutter your bedroom; in fact, it’ll add both storage space and personality to your decor. The choices you have aren’t just limited to a chest or trunk at the end of your bed either. A pretty slat low bench gives you a place to sit and read in your sanctum as well as use it as a book bench for those books. It’s also dead handy to put your linens down on when you are changing bed sheets or even to keep your extra blankets on.
Fiberglass is plastic that is reinforced by fine glass fibers or strands embedded in a resin matrix.
Fiberglass is a fascinatingly beautiful, durable and sustainable material that has been touted as the lumber of the future. Its vibrant aesthetics, versatility and beguiling tactility have bestowed upon the material a sort of casual but hardy connoisseurship that endures.
Fiberglass is lightweight, extremely robust, low-maintenance, UV-resistant, nonporous and chemically inert, which means that it will not react with other substances that it comes in contact with. The strength properties of fiberglass actually surpass that of heavier steel. It also holds its shape and color over its lifetime and has excellent impact and scratch resistance. Little wonder then that it is a favorite material for furniture. Fiberglass has a very comfortable finish and also takes on even more depth as it wears in, showing more complexity as compared to other plastics that merely look hazed and dull over time and scratches. Cleaning fiberglass chairs is as easy as wiping them down.
