Lay a piece of paper over the missing section and rub with a soft pencil to get an outline of the area. Cut the paper to the pattern and stick it to the replacement piece of wood. Cut the wood slightly larger than the pattern and rub down with glass-paper until the exact fit can be obtained. Stick it into place with cold wood glue. On many antique furniture pieces the marquetry tends to lift through age and using the warm iron technique will heat the glue and the raised piece can be gently pressed down back into position. If dust has been trapped under the lifted section, it should be removed, cleaned and re-stuck into position.

The Victorians had a habit of replacing metal handles with round wooden knobs, often leaving the marks of the former back-plates showing. Sets of old handles can be picked up cheaply from antique and second-hand shops but make sure that the back-plates are large enough to cover any existing indentations.

Also, make sure that there are no signs of water damage in any part of the building. Furniture should be kept dry because moisture is the main cause of damage to stored furniture. You should have many thick plastic sheets handy. These sheets should be laid on the floors of self storage units to keep moisture and humidity at bay. Moisture can cause mold growth which is harmful for furniture. Furniture storage can also be done on top of wooden pallets which let the items breathe and save them from moisture.

Natural Rattan Furniture: Even more than with synthetic rattan, the question of whether or not rattan furniture is eco-friendly seems to arise about items made from the actual material extracted from palm trees. Any natural material will always bring about doubts as to whether or not using it may be harming the environment, and in the case of rattan, this is no different.

Different Materials For Outdoor Furniture: Whichever approach one takes to the modern-day landscaping and outdoor decoration market, there is no denying that rattan garden furniture is the most popular type of outdoor furniture, and one of the most popular types of landscaping items in general. With their versatile nature, weather resistance, sturdy build and low maintenance requirements, items made from both natural and synthetic rattan have taken over the landscaping market to such an extent that many home-owners never even consider the possibility that there may be other, different materials for outdoor furniture.

Choosing Industrial Furniture: While choosing industrial furniture keep in mind that the industrial era used materials that were bulky and heavy such as solid wood and steel. These pieces were made to last for years and took alot of wear and tear. You can still find some of these peices today. Their worn, weathered look gives them character and adds a bit of drama to any space. They may be covered in leather, heavy denim, linen, cotton ticking or wool. Besides wood and steel you may find pieces made of galvanized metal and iron with muted industrial paint and powder-coated finishes.

Furniture Veneer, Inlay, Marquetry and Boulle: Their artistry fell into four main categories: veneers, strips of mahogany or walnut, waxed and polished to enrich their grain and colour; marquetry, patterns and pictorial designs built up from a variety of different woods; inlay, which achieved a similar effect using pieces of tortoiseshell, mother of pearl, ivory and ebony; and boulle, named after a French family of cabinet makers in the 17th and 18th centuries whose furniture was decorated with designs in brass, picked out in black pigment and filled in with inlay. The skills of these craftsmen linger on in many small individual firms. Many of these antique pieces fetch an unbelievably high price at auctions around the globe, especially if they are from sought after craftsmen from early Victorian periods.
