In traditional furniture, hardware mainly has a "decorative" function and is considered as accessories in furniture. However, since the 1960s, the importance of hardware in furniture has been continuously enhanced. In addition to its traditional decorative function, furniture hardware has also shown outstanding comprehensive functionality in practical applications.
For China, furniture manufacturing began during the Shang and Zhou dynasties. Furniture made during this period was mostly used for sacrifice, and the material used was mostly bronze. Because the production technology of copper was relatively mature and advanced compared to other materials at that time, and China had extremely rich copper resources, copper is one of the most commonly used materials in traditional furniture and hardware fittings. According to the color of copper, it is mainly divided into brass, bronze, and white copper. Among them, the manufacturing materials of furniture hardware fittings during the Ming and Qing dynasties were mostly white copper. In addition to copper materials, materials such as gold, silver, and iron are also widely used in the manufacturing of traditional furniture hardware fittings. With the different metal materials made into hardware fittings, each material has its own advantages and uses, and the visual experience brought to consumers is also extremely outstanding.
In addition to traditional wooden furniture, under the background of continuous development of modern science and technology and the widespread application of various materials, metal furniture and plastic furniture have also started to flood into the furniture market. Under this background, the manufacturing materials of hardware fittings have also shown a highly diverse development trend. At present, the commonly used materials for furniture hardware fittings include aluminum alloy materials, copper materials, iron, steel, zinc alloy materials, and plastics. More importantly, based on the consideration of the aesthetics and economic factors of modern furniture hardware fittings, a series of operations such as painting and electroplating can be carried out on the surface of these materials to improve the artistic and ornamental qualities of hardware fittings without affecting their normal performance.
Through the above analysis, it is not difficult to find that the modern furniture field is gradually developing towards comprehensiveness, integration, simplicity, decoration, and practicality. Under this development trend, hardware fittings, as one of the main components of furniture structures, have attracted special attention and importance from various personnel. In summary, this article briefly analyzes and explains the relevant issues involved in the comparison of traditional and modern furniture hardware fittings, hoping to provide some reference and help for the follow-up practical work.
