Be careful on your explanation of it being legal to copy furniture. There are parts of what you are saying that are false or, in the very least, misleading.

You failed to clarify the extent of a design patent. You are right about the copyright though, but that wasn’t created to protect furniture design in the first place so of course it wouldn’t protect it.

Also, I think the overall design of a piece of furniture could be deemed art as well… which brings up whole other issues.

Just giving you some feedback.
