Bright furniture used to mean furniture that was painted a bright color. Luckily, those days are long gone: with advances in plastic polymer technology, furniture is now available in a range of colors only imaginable a few years back. And recent innovations have led to bright furniture that is so bright you actually have to plug it in.

A New World of Bright Furniture

To the great pleasure of color-lovers, modern designers have truly embraced bright furniture in recent years. It's a gradual process: they offer a table in black, white, wood, and a crazy color--and when the crazy color sells out they gather their courage and push the envelope a bit further. We're now at a point where our homes are about to explode with color.

With the advent of high-quality, sturdy plastics, modern designers are now able to incorporate color directly into the materials that they use to make their furniture. Paint is no longer necessary--extruded plastics are injected with color and then molded into a specific shape. This removes the possibility of chipping and fading.

The real cutting edge of bright furniture, however, is something known as "illuminating furniture." Illuminating furniture does what it implies: it lights up. And this doesn't mean it always has to be plugged in--many types of illuminating furniture can actually hold a charge for up to 24 hours, so you can unplug them and leave them on all night long, basking in their soft futuristic glow.
