Fixed furniture through ages
Anciently fixed furniture was considered by some nations as the main type of furniture as they used to carve their furniture out of marble or rocks and thus it was inconvenient to move this type of furniture. Years passing furniture had to adapt to become movable and more flexible as being carved of heavy materials that makes it immovable has become a liability for progress, thus it was a only a matter of time for furniture to be made of transferrable light-weighted raw materials instead.
Nowadays people consider loose furniture the most widely used type of furniture, some people don't even acknowledge the presence of fixed furniture as a major type, while in fact fixed furniture is found in many sets and may represent the majority of furniture used in these sets such as kitchens, offices, lounges, universities, banks and restaurants.

Fixed or loose furniture?
Some people might argue that loose furniture is the best to be used in most of settings while others might argue the contrary.
In fact, each of both types has its own pros and cons; as in case of Loose furniture it is easier to move it and thus you can redecorate your setting easily from time to time and thus you earn the merit of flexibility and change, but in the same time your render the furniture more liable to damage every time you move it. On the other hand, Fixed furniture provides constancy and monotony thus by having it you gain the merit of strict system tidiness and safety of the furniture, but this as well come with a cost which is monotony and inflexibility.
As a conclusion we deduce that each type is better used than the other type to serve a specific reason. And after observing every set you can find out that combining both types; Loose and Fixed furniture, together gives the best possible solution as in most settings there should be some furniture that is moveable while the rest furniture is best to be kept in its place unmoved.
Finally, if you are an enthusiastic person looking for change every while we recommend Loose furniture, and if you are a conservative person, we recommend you having Fixed furniture, or if you are a mixture of both personalities, we recommend having both types in the same time using Loose furniture in areas permitting moveability and Fixed furniture in areas restricting it and requiring minimality of so.
