Among them, polymethyl methacrylate is the most widely used.

Acrylic furniture

    Acrylic furniture first appeared in Europe and developed in the 1990s. Acrylic furniture has only gained considerable development in the 21st century. Acrylic furniture can be seen in high-end hotels and villas in the field of home decoration.

    Since the German Rohm & Haas company produced the first acrylic sheet in 1920, the application of acrylic has become more and more extensive. Acrylic furniture first appeared in Germany.

    In 1941, a German crafts designer had a sudden thought when he was designing accessories. If acrylic can be used as a material for furniture, it would definitely be perfect. So he designed a design drawing of a coffee table using acrylic as the material. Tianhou made the coffee table. The appearance was perfect as he originally expected, but the structural design was lacking. So far, acrylic furniture was born.

Acrylic can also be used to make environmental buttons. Because of its high light transmittance, the buttons are shiny. At the same time, because of its strong hardness and not fragile, it can achieve the effect of long-term use.

Most of the furniture on the market is made of traditional materials such as wooden materials, metal materials, and glass materials. Furniture made of such materials has problems such as high cost, unenvironmental protection, and complicated craftsmanship.
