    Have added system and seek information to this category, which is now open for discussion.

    Green Building Properties are not default Seek parameters for furniture, but it would make sense to add these to both "furniture" and "furniture systems"

    Obviously there needs to be some dimension parameters too... would Height, Width & Depth be sufficient ?

    Also, one general "material" parameter doesn´t cut it - but I´m not sure how to name additional material parameters to fit different kinds of furniture systems... ? Thoughts ?

      I think for the extra materials just a note in the template itself that says: <if extra materials are needed, add them using the recommendations from the style guide > or something similar

        Well, maybe for starters someone could explain the difference to me between Furniture and Furniture Systems?
        As for the parameters: we could pretty much copy those from the Furniture Category, can't we?

          Good question, but the way I´ve differed between Furniture and Furniture Systems in the past, have been:

          Furniture: Residential (Anything you would have at home)
          Furniture Systems: Commercial (Anything used in Offices, Schools, Stores, Factories, etc.)

          And yes, most (if not all) parameters would probably be the same in these two categories... but sub-categories would/will vary a lot.

            The way I've understood them to be is furniture is anything that is residential in nature or even commercial chairs, desks, tables, etc
            Furniture System I always viewed as anything similar to a "Cubicle" or modular Office setups. But I do residential work only so I have never needed furniture systems

              Right, still seems a bit arbitrary... how about an office at home

                Is your office at home an actual cubicle assembly? or is it a room with desk, chair, file cabinets, etc ( not assembled as on cohesive unit)?

                  Lets just Use the furniture parameters and problem solved. In terms of Materials just a note to abide by RFO guidelines to add new material parameters

                    ok with me...
                    about my office: are you saying that a Furniture System is by definition an assembly of separate families? Then why not make it a Group? Is this maybe a relic from ancient Revit times which no-one bothered to kick out of Revit?
