The same hot iron and gluing method is used in repairing marquetry. Lay a piece of paper over the missing section and rub with a soft pencil to get an outline of the area. Cut the paper to the pattern and stick it to the replacement piece of wood. Cut the wood slightly larger than the pattern and rub down with glass-paper until the exact fit can be obtained. Stick it into place with cold wood glue. On many antique furniture pieces the marquetry tends to lift through age and using the warm iron technique will heat the glue and the raised piece can be gently pressed down back into position. If dust has been trapped under the lifted section, it should be removed, cleaned and re-stuck into position.
Choosing Industrial Furniture: While choosing industrial furniture keep in mind that the industrial era used materials that were bulky and heavy such as solid wood and steel. These pieces were made to last for years and took alot of wear and tear. You can still find some of these peices today. Their worn, weathered look gives them character and adds a bit of drama to any space. They may be covered in leather, heavy denim, linen, cotton ticking or wool. Besides wood and steel you may find pieces made of galvanized metal and iron with muted industrial paint and powder-coated finishes.
Synthetic Rattan Furniture: Synthetic materials are usually regarded with suspicion when it comes to environmental sustainability, even when, as with rattan furniture, this is one of the main selling points employed by manufacturers and retailers.
