AbstractA piece of furniture comprises several angularly adjoining structural components, such as plates and/or bars, or polygonal outline. Each component is framed by several modular elements in the form of elongate profiles extending along respective sides of the polygon. Each profile has a wide first flange, contacting the component or integral therewith, and a second, narrower flange held spaced from this first flange by a transverse web; a still narrower third flange may be held spaced from the second flange by an extension of the web, the three flanges then having beveled edges lying in two common planes which include angles of 90° or 60° with the midplane of the profile. Adjoining profiles, whose first flanges lie in different planes, are joined by angular connectors along their longitudinal or their transverse edges, the connectors having parts received in grooves defined by pairs of parallel flanges in the first instance and in channels formed by brackets on the first flanges in the second instance.
