Built in Furniture
Much of the furniture used by COSTFORD is built-in. These are either of brick or rubble masonry raised above floor level. Raised rubble masonry with finished surface can act as sitting or tables or even beds. Brick furniture is generally finished with a red or black oxide layer. To make it interesting, tiles are fixed to these oxides to form an integrated design pattern. Bay windows, outdoor sittings, loft beds, study tables, etc. are common examples of built-in furniture.
Recesses and buttresses in walls are used as shelves, almirahs and cupboards. Common thoughts behind this built-in furniture are that, after constructing houses and buildings, clients are left with very little money to buy costly furniture, so these built-ins save money and also provide strength to the walls.
