The History of Furniture: Neolithic Period

Furniture has been a part of the human experience since the development of non-nomadic cultures. Evidence of furniture survives from the Neolithic Period and later in antiquity in the form of paintings such as the wall murals discovered at Pompeii; sculpture and examples have been excavated in Egypt and found in tombs in Ghiordes, in modern-day Turkey. People have been using natural objects, such as tree stumps, rocks, and moss, as furniture since the beginning of human civilization. Archaeological research shows that from around 30,000 years ago, people started to construct and carve their own furniture, using wood, stone, and animal bones. Early furniture from this period is known from artwork such as a Venus figurine found in Russia, depicting the goddess on a throne. The first surviving extant furniture is in the homes of Skara Brae in Scotland and includes cupboards, dressers, and beds all constructed from stone.

Coconut Timber Wood

Coconut timber is a hardwood-substitute from coconut palm trees. It is referred to in the Philippines as coconut lumber, or coco lumber, and elsewhere additionally as coco wood or red palm. It is a new timber resource that comes from plantation crops and offers an alternative to rainforest timber. Coconut timber comes from farmed plantations of old coconut palms. The coconut palm was planted as a crop in large plantations throughout the tropics in the early half of the 20th century in order to harvest the coconut fruit. The tree bears fruit until approximately 70 years of age, at which point it is considered to have reached the end of its economic life and is felled to make way for future crops. Each year, several million palms are felled throughout the tropics. Traditionally, the trunks have been wasted by-products from this process.
