Furniture

Furniture represents a very wide and variable range of products that we meet in all possible interiors. Furniture plays in human life next to the practical role also still more important aesthetical role which supported the development of new materials, constructions etc. That is connected with an increase of interest in this field also among standard-creators that have set up completely new standards focusing on assessment of mechanical and chemical properties of furniture including materials for their production. Although furniture does not fall under the international harmonized regulation, international as well as domestic producers still more care about increasing of not only a customer’s comfort but also safety and hygienic comfort.
