The Artistic Furniture of Charles Rohlfs

The Artistic Furniture of Charles Rohlfs at the Milwaukee Art Museum. "...Charles Rohlfs thought of himself as an American original. This charismatic furniture designer from Buffalo, New York, emphatically denied any connection to particular movements or stylistic influences. He claimed that his individual inspiration came from the natural grain of oak and his own creative imagination. He called his work 'Artistic Furniture' or, simply, 'The Rohlfs Style' and, in turn, cultivated an enigmatic persona that has persisted until now." Also... a Charles Rohlfs Mahogany Chair, ca. 1910 appraised on PBS' Antiques Roadshow in 2006.

You can easily obtain your home office furniture these days. If you prefer antique furniture, you will need to spend some money since this type of furniture is a bit pricey. You should also be aware that antique furniture is massive, heavy, and requires thorough maintenance, not only that, the furniture pieces are not feasible for office use. When you’re a new employee, the work area may still seem cold. If you want, you can change the atmosphere to a homier one by bringing one of your chairs to the office but don’t bring the antique chair, just leave it at home and choose a chair that is fit for office use.
