Ok...can anyone explain to the difference between a furniture and furniture system?  Does anyone know why the makers of Revit created the two types? 

They are obviously different families, but I'm wondering what sort of objects people consider furniture and what is considered furniture systems.  I know it's probably just user preference, but I'm curious as to what other people use the furniture system family for. 

 Thanks...

Furniture Systems is for those of us in the commercial world for "systems furniture" (i.e. cubes) from companies like Haworth, Steelcase, Allsteel, Herman Miller etc.  We seperate out the cubes from regular furniture like chairs, tables etc.

It's your choice what category to use or ignore.  They are both there for those of us that need them.

Most likely, scheduling options.  My guess would be you would want to keep systems such as the cubes, etc on a seperate schedule (especially for estimating) than the furniture such as chairs and coffee table for the lobby.

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get involved in a land war in asia, but only slightly less well known is this! Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!
