1.The style of bedroom furniture: Before starting to purchase, just take a look around the full house and see the decors. It will be easier for you decide that whether you want to choose the similar arrangement to make the look cohesive and unified or go with a different style than the rest. Other than this, you can try a mix and match technique where different styles can be adopted in different rooms or some common things implemented together etc. One thing that takes us in a dilemma is the type of furniture to take i.e. traditional, contemporary, modern, country or casual. If you are a novice in the same, have a look at the items like the flower vase, paintings, TV stands, living room furniture or even your favourite clothes. This will give you the idea as to what should you select.
The most typical feature in the constructional details of Louis XVI furniture is the leg. It is slender and tapering in chairs, generally fluted; the flutings of more costly chairs often filled for part of their length by husk-pattern carvings. A rounded moulding forms a collar at the upper end and a similar one, or a cup of acanthus leaves at the lower, the leg terminating in a plain cylindrical foot a couple of inches in height. In more elaborate pieces this foot is replaced by a moulded button as in the wide oval backed chair, in the Metropolitan Museum. Exceptions to the rule are alway true. The fluting frequently gives place in richer pieces to a rope effect. Two characteristic styles of chairs are where fluted architectural columns are used as supports, while in the other a square leg with a single canal takes the place of the usual round leg. The legs of Louis XVI furniture are always straight and taper downwards. Some of the commodes have a squat pedestal generally round but sometimes square.

Besides chairs and buffets there are a certain number of large panelled cupboards with hinged doors, which fold back into small compass, such as two in the possession of Mr A. L. Radford, and the well-known example in the Strangers' Hall, Norwich, probably made by a "stranger artificer " for Nicholas Sotherton, who acquired the Hall in 1509. It is a rare instance of an article of furniture remaining for four centuries in its original surroundings. at work on the wainscot. The Countess of Shrewsbury had inlaid furniture made for her, which is still preserved at Hardwick,' and the first extant day-bed or couch, painted with her arms, stands in the long gallery of the house. A few years later a couch is during the last quarter of the century the bulbous or melon-shaped excrescence appears on table legs and supports, which is also found in furniture in the Low Countries. In the best examples the gadrooning suggests contemporary silversmith's work, and the enlargement is divided into a clearly marked cup and cover. During the late seventeenth century, however, this motif loses its original meaning, and the division is slightly indicated by a groove or ring. A plain bulb or peg-top enlargement is characteristic of the Restoration period. Upholstered furniture was in use late in the reign of Elizabeth, for we find Sir John Harington inquiring if it would not as well " become the state of the chamber to have easy quilted and lined forms and stools for the lords and ladies to sit on, which fashion is now taken up in every merchant's hall, as great plank forms that two yeomen can scant remove out of their places, and wainscot stools so hard that since great breeches were laid aside, men can scant endure to sit upon."
