The appearance of furniture dates back to the time of the Neolithic revolution — the transition of primitive communities to settlement. Furniture developed faster among those tribes that, due to climatic conditions, needed more enclosed spaces. The most important prerequisite for the development of furniture was also the availability of affordable material with the necessary strength, relatively low weight, malleability to processing. Initially, those pieces of material that came closest to the required shape of the product or part were chosen for furniture. With the development of woodworking technologies, changes in the socio-economic system and everyday life, new types of furniture appeared and developed.
The development of furniture is also closely related to the development of artistic styles. Individual styles generated not only special types and designs of furniture, but also new ideas about its compositional patterns. In addition, the national traditions of everyday life and art in general had a noticeable influence on the decorative, and partly compositional, features of furniture.
