Furniture for the decoration of living quarters has special meaning. Along the functional properties it also has a meaning as a status symbol. We were interested in factors most decisive in selecting furniture.

We found out that customers are not prepared to make the financial investments in a subject of such relevance as living furniture, and are only prepared to replace it when it is at the very end of its life span.
