Ready to assemble (RTA) furniture refers to pre manufactured yet not assembled furniture and it has to be assembled by end consumers. Ready to assemble furniture, also known as knock-down (KD) furniture has flexible designs and it allows multiple pieces to be made from basic configurations. RTA furniture is usually constructed from particleboard and plastic with colored melamine or wood veneer to give the finish of wood. Ready to assemble furniture products include electronic and computer furniture, entertainment center for television and desktop, dressers, desks, storage units, and cabinets. This furniture comes with assembly instructions and a series of schematic diagrams intended to visually assist the customer’s furniture assembly process.

Ready to assemble furniture is highly customer friendly and easy to transport and has simple assembling instructions. Commercial offices prefers these furniture as they are compact in nature, easy to locate and transport.

Ready to assemble furniture is a consumer friendly alternative due to improved materials and designing innovations. Consumers prefer such furniture for their homes due to improved quality and increased options and styles. The driving force behind much of the demand for ready to assemble furniture is the consumer’s seemingly insatiable appetite for televisions, computers, and other electronic devices.  Unlike the earlier preference for traditional furniture, currently people want ready to assemble furniture which suits their requirements.

Ready to assemble furniture manufacturers have created a finish that almost resembles real wood. New design features, such as wood facings and rounded corners have resulted in growth of ready to assemble products which are similar to more expensive case goods. The assembly process has witnessed innovations, which previously scared many customers away from purchasing RTA goods. New locking systems that allow for simple assembly without tools, as well as a reduction in the number of pieces requiring assembly, have contributed to reducing the amount of time required to put together these products.
