...industry resonates

The Industrial Revolution was a period from the 18th to the 19th century where major changes in agriculture, manufacturing, mining, transportation, and technology had a profound effect on the socioeconomic and cultural conditions of the times. It began in the United Kingdom, then subsequently spread throughout Europe, North America, and eventually the world. The development of all-metal machine tools in the first two decades of the 19th century facilitated the manufacture of more production machines for manufacturing in other industries. Everything old is new again as shown in Thomasvilles' latest offering, appropriately entitled 'Reinventions.' Redecorate with panache and sensibility. Shown are a few new items including an Apprentice Adjustable Table, a Shop Floor Chest and an Aperture Mirror. Redo an entire space or pick and choose a handful of these iconic and interesting pieces to thrust industry into your home or office. Don't forget your Summer House too! Mixing these metal and wood pieces and integrating seaside colorings with be just what James Hargreaves ordered.
