New Furniture Varieties Accent Easy touch To Average Budget The influence of various home magazines, movies with settings ranging from the typical home to the lush mansions of the millionaires, has made home-makers more aware of their surroundings, given them hints on how to beautify their homes, and, finally, created a consumer demand for quality and beauty in home furnishings at prices within the average budget. Shoppers now know what they want, both in furniture styles and coverings, and, what's more, refuse' to buy until they get it! They have provided a challenge to manufacturers which has been admirably met-by a wider selection ot furnishings for 1950 than has heretofore been offered. Every period is well represented, and designers have outdone themselves in presenting fabrics and coverings in every conceivable shade and pattern. Perhaps the most outstanding highlight of .the new furniture showings is the Oriental influence. In furniture design, rugs, fabrics, lamps and bric-a-brac, the graceful lines and outstanding colorings of the Orient contribute forcibly to the American scene. Blending equally well with both modern and period furniture, the Oriental motif will be with us for many years to come. Noteworthy among the new Spring showings are more canopy beds in. the American and French Provincial groups; and more conversational-type occasional tables, sofas and chairs of Cape Cod influence. Sofas feature horizontal channel backs, exposed framework and other back features for pieces to be used in the middle of the room; can tile vered, pillow and bolster arms. Chair features include swing backs, locks on platform rockers, seats that adjust to length, arms that fold into backs or drop into arm-chair position to permit sectional groupings, and swivels. The importance of television has prompted some manufacturers to offer chairs that tilt and swing around for more convenient and comfortable viewing. Convertible sleeping units are on the increase. Bed divans convert without being moved from the wall. Caster and hinge combinations simplify swinging one Rochelle of California gives a new note to table talk with a smart, modern end table with sliding glass top section. Note the air of functional fashion to the simple chair and lamp.
