Furniture for all times. Addressing furniture as a contribution to the research into material culture

The article is based on physical and documentation material collected in the course of a
project that focused on the Naglas family from Ljubljana and the Naglas company, which
produced furniture from the mid 19th to the mid 20th century. The central focus of the
article derives from its study of the family’s (former) bourgeois home and its interior
furnishings. The material dwelling environment actively participates in the construction of
everyday life, influences movements and events in space, and creates a unique perception
of space and people. In this context furniture may be a limiting factor as well. The article
seeks to understand the materiality of the home within a family community, and to identify
its importance to the wider social context.
