1875 Furniture

While stumbling through and 1875 newspaper I came across an advertisement for furniture. What caught my eye were some of the terms used in the ad. For example calling it furniture ware rooms and cabinet ware. It makes sense but the term is foreign to my 21st century ears. Below is a copy of two ads. One for general types of furnishings the second for a piano.

Note the different style/shape of the piano.
