This object has the following keywords:
  • Acer - Genus containing around 200 species of shrubs or trees widely distributed in the North Temperate Zone, but concentrated in China. Maples are used as ornamentals, tapped for syrup, and provide valuable, dense hardwood for furniture and other uses. All maples bear pairs of winged seeds, called samaras or keys. The leaves are arranged oppositely on twigs. Many maples have lobed leaves, but a few have leaves separated into leaflets. More recent classifications place the genus in the family Sapindaceae, although some have placed it in a family of its own, Aceraceae.
  • canework - Components of works or sometimes stand-alone works that are made of strips of cane, which is the long, hollow, pithy, jointed stem of certain plants, such as bamboo, rattan, sugarcane or certain palms. Examples of canework include furnishings, such as the woven seat of a chair.
  • chaises longues - Chairs, often upholstered, having a full-length leg rest and usually arms, designed for one person to recline on. For similar chairs used outdoors, use "deck chairs."
  • furniture - Movable or fixed objects or equipment, which may be either functional or ornamental, particularly objects for sitting, reclining, or storage, such as chairs, beds, tables, cabinets, etc., in a dwelling, business, or public space.
  • upholstery - Refers to the fixed soft coverings for furniture, especially seating and reclining furniture. Originally referred to all the textile components of a room supplied by upholsterers, including wall hangings, bed hangings, window curtains, and table coverings.
