its a long step but it works for me,

first, make a new family>new furniture template then drop and drag the Cad format of your furniture,make sure you have a the appropriate units for importing cad objects,

after importing it,go to 3d view, then export it again to cad format.

if you open the newly exported CAD file you'll have only two layer 0 and 3D-NPP, explode your object twice.then make new layer..assign it w/ you chosen layers..save it..

open you revit and import your newly edited file..go to object style change the materials  at imported objects,be sure to duplicate the material.

hope it work for you..by the way i attached the berlino bed,=)

Well, importing into a mass avoids having to do any prep in SketchUp, like painting the default color and putting things on layers. Once in a mass, the object can be painted using the paint bucket, which is quick. But I find that my students often have large numbers of objects that the apply materials to. If an entire layer of, say, countertops, can be painted all at once (and on all faces), things go more quickly. I wish the sketchup objects would retain the original materials, though...
