What is the correct body posture to prevent back injuries? Transporting heavy furnitures and large objects in an incorrectly way is one of the most common causes of back pain. You can reduce this risk by ensuring and using the stronger muscles (quadriceps) of the legs so they can be used to do the hardest and the most of the work. Keep your back completely straight every time. Bend your knees to lift the objects from the knees level. In case of a heavy box, kneel beside the box with feet about 30 cm apart. To raise it, rest it on the body. It is important that when you are lifting heavy furnitures you should bend your knees rather than your back. To leave a heavy piece of furniture on the floor it has to adopt the same principle, not to bend your body under any circumstances and always using the legs. For transporting luggage or shopping bags, you should try to balance the weights on both arms. It is less harmful to your back, to carry all the weight like this, rather that with one arm, which will make you lean to one side forcing your spine.     How to transport the porcelain figurines of Lladro and others? The most convenient, given the fragility of porcelain figurines, is to transport them with boxes (specially with the lladro box), but always, being involved with very soft material, foam or bubble wrap. When the porcelain contains many flowers, slender fingers or shapes with a high risk of failure, it is best to wrap them as little as possible and try to hold the porcelain box from the base. What the company, Cocowif, usually do with susceptible delicate porcelains of breakage is to put soft materials, and try to attach the porcelain figurine from the base. The materials we use are subject to the bubble wrap, bags of compressed air, rock wool or even cartons wrapped strategically placed; causing the porcelain figurine to be absolutely immobilized. With this procedure, we managed to avoid having to wrap the figurine of porcelain of Lladro, from the top and achieve by this way to reduce the risk of breakage at the most delicate moment of the process, which is the time when we have to take out the figurine of porcelain Lladro from the box. Remember, that the most important thing is to set correctly the porcelain to the base and for large figurines is very important to hold them with rapes from the trunk, of the figurine, but always being protected with bubble wrap between the porcelain and the...

Retro furniture, amazing bar decorated in retro style

Posted by on Feb 6, 2015 in Advice, Antiques », English, Retro furniture | 0 comments

What is retro style and the difference between retro furniture and vintage furniture? Both refer to the past, but the main difference is that while the vintage furniture is 100% from an earlier era, retro furniture may be made with today motif, utensils and style of a previous era or an old cabinet, with modern decoration. That is, the main difference is that one is old purebred and the other has a current small deviation. But yes indeed, which no doubt at all, it is true, that both, retro furniture and vintage furniture are fascinating, elegant and stylish  for the decoration of any home or space.     As you can see in the picture the bar is an actual wooden piece painted in black, White, red and yellow lines with a 1970’s piece of metacrylate with led lights, accompained by three spectacular 1950`s decorated stools with new upholstered. As you can see the point of the decoration of this bar is inspired in a barcode. It is perfect to invite your family and friends to have a drink. Give the powerful touch to the decoration of your home with this retro furniture. In Cocowif we give a lot of importance to retro furniture, changed the look of our antiques through modernst decorations. We do not mind the period of antiquity, we make retro furniture, with antique furniture from old nineteenth century to vintage furniture from the 70-80. The idea is to give a special and different touch to the Antique pieces, in order to make it unique, amazing and vital to decorating any space and home. COCOWIF ADVISE: The current trend is to decorate your home in a unique and welcoming space. You don’t need not follow the fashions of vintage furniture and retro furniture, and destrones the antiques of your home. Don’t do it!!! The idea is to mix all styles; create an eclectic decoration, where antiques are highlighted by the colors and the joy of retro furniture, as well as by the more aggressive designs of vintage furniture. The decoration should never be radical, you have to know how to combine trends. From my point of view is equally appalling, total minimalist decor, absolutely full of antique or retro furniture or vintage furniture or art deco furniture decoration. We must highlight the parts with another era or trend. For me, a radical decoration with an unique style or trend, makes the furniture to lose the prominence and the importance of these decorative pieces. Do not burn your antiques, retro furniture or your vintage furniture, even to become decorate your home in a minimalist place. Mix the trends and styles and don`t be afraid. The touch of a retro furniture can allow you to give the missing point, that you are looking for in the decoration of your home.  ...

How to choose and fix a tennis racket? Before I start writing these tips, I have to advise you to enter into the website www.cocowif.com to check the porcelain figurine of Lladro “tennis player” in order to decorate your home or office, in case you’re a lover of tennis. The most important factors when choosing a tennis racket are, first of all, the grip size and weight and, secondly, the head size and composition. Make your choice based on touch or feel. If possible, go to a specialized store or a sports setting that has a wide variety of tennis rackets. Always buy the tennis racket which you feel most comfortable. The porcelain figurine of Lladro that we show on our website www.cocowif.com shows a player wearing an old wooden racket, racquet from years 50-70’s. This figurine of Lladro perfectly expresses the dress of that period.     How should be the handle and the weight of the tennis racket? The circumference of the grip of the tennis racket of an adult ranges from 10-12 cm; for a young player is more appropriate a handle 10 cm. The weight of the racket is indicated by identifying markings depending on the country of manufacture; corresponding lighter beginners, to make it easier to handle and more manageable. The head surface varies from 477 cm2 for children to 710 cm2 for adults. These days are very rare to see wooden tennis rackets like the one shown in the Figurine of porcelain Lladro, the ones that are used recently in the tennis rackets are aluminum or graphite composite compression molded or injection. They have the advantage of not vibrate as they absorb better than the wooden tennis rackets vibrations.
