Introduction to Furnishing in New World

The Furnishing Trade Skill in New World allows players to craft furniture for player housing. Trophies, chests, chairs, tables, drawers, and much more. 

Trophies are a common item to place in your house since they give you a global buff of some kind (Limit 5 per house). Chests are also a common item to place in your house as they increase your storage shed size in the settlement you are in (Limit varies on house size). 

To get started with Furnishing you will need to gather resources. Once the resources have been obtained you will be using the Workshop (Arrow/Musket icon on map) to craft anything Furnishing. Walk up to the Workshop and press your default interact button, “E”, to open the crafting window.


It is important to note the tier of the Workshop you are using as it determines what tier items you can craft:
  • Workshop T2: 1-49 Recipes
  • Workshop T3: 50-99 Recipes
  • Workshop T4: 100-149 Recipes
  • Workshop T5: 150+ Recipes

Once your crafting window is open, select an item you wish to craft from the list on the left hand side of the window. Once you’ve selected what you want it will display the resources required to craft the item in the middle. On the bottom right is your craft button, click it to craft the item you selected. If you wish to craft more than one item you can move the slider above the craft button; however it will only show if you can craft more than 1 item with the resources you’ve gathered. 

TIP: When crafting, the game will automatically pull resources from the local storage shed to craft, so you don’t have to have all the materials on your character.

Experience gains from crafting an item can be found under the blue CRAFT button on the bottom left. The amount of experience gained will always be the same. There is no way to increase or decrease that value on a single craft. Everything in Furnishing will provide some kind of experience when crafted, however there are a few things that are better than others. 

All the crafting for Furnishing use static recipes. If you wish to craft something then you will need exact materials. There is no alternative resource that you may use in place of another resource. 

Furnishing also makes use of Schematics. Schematics are items that you salvage to learn how to craft a furnishing item. By leveling up Furnishing you will only learn about 25% of the recipes, the other 75% will require you to seek out the schematics if you wish to learn them all.

Salvaging Schematics: It's possible to salvage a schematic you’ve already learned; however with the 1.2 patch you will now get a warning if you’ve already learned it. Additionally with the patch they've updated all the schematics to match the furnishing's name so you don't have to figure out what "Maple Bed 01" is or is not when looking at a schematic! 


Leveling Furnishing

Information in this section contains what I feel is a way to level your Furnishing Trade Skill. You are in no way restricted to this method. The first thing I want to make note of are the items you shouldn’t use to level.

Don’t craft (Unless you need one, want one, or plan to sell it); All the furniture *stains, Wicker Basket, Old Straw Cot, Old Log Stool, Old Wooden Bunk Bed, Stone Mason Table, and the Hardworking Scrolled Desk. These listed items do not follow the standard experience formulas for their tier and will yield you less experience overall. 

*Furniture Stains: Solvents have very little use outside of stains and it is very common for players to use them as a leveling method for Furnishing to remove excess solvent. While they are used for gems, it doesn’t matter what tier is used as it doesn’t change the yield chances for cutting/fusing gems. Additionally, stains' experience yields are 1 tier below what they unlock, so it's not a complete loss of experience if used. 

TIP: Trophies are a great way to earn experience if people need them crafted. The first tier of trophies will show in your learned recipes list while the others are artifact crafts and will not be visible unless you have the right item. This means you can craft them as long as you have the right level! (It's not efficient to level with only trophies due to the rare drops required to craft them)

Levels 1 - 50 (Tier 2 Crafting)
You will need a total of 23,375 experience to reach level 50. Tier 2 crafting for Furnishing follows this formula for experience: [Number of Materials * 6 Experience = Experience Output].

Option 1 - Rusty Iron Lanterns
My first suggestion for leveling this tier is to craft 156 Rusty Iron Lanterns for a total of 23,400 experience. The Rusty Iron Lantern requires 15x Iron Ingots, 5x Oil, and 5x Fiber to craft.  Total required materials:
  • 2,340x Iron Ingots
  • 780x Oil
  • 780x Fiber
Base materials for up-crafting:
  • 5,360x Iron Ore -> Ingots
Rusty Iron Lantern’s base tax value is 0.13. Without any tax modifiers you will need to spend 24.96 coin/gold to just craft them. Additionally you will need 23.40 coin/gold if you plan to refine the Iron Ingots. 

Option 2 - Round Sunny Rug
The other suggestion for leveling this tier is to craft 156 Round Sunny Rugs for a total of 23,400 experience, just like the lanterns. The Round Sunny Rug requires 15x Linen, 5x Crossweave, and 5x Fiber to craft. Total required materials:
  • 2,340x Linen
  • 780x Crossweave
  • 780x Fiber
Base materials for up-crafting:
  • 5,360x Fiber -> Linen [6,140x Fiber total]
Round Sunny Rug’s base tax value is 0.13. Without any tax modifiers you will need to spend 24.96 coin/gold to just craft them. Additionally you will need 23.40 coin/gold if you plan to refine the Linen. 

Between both Option 1 and 2 you can see that both of them are rather similar in requirements. Both only need 1 refined material in the craft; while the Round Sunny Rug does make use of the Crossweave which is a refining material item. Additionally with the rug, you will only need to gather fiber while the Crossweave will most likely be cheap.

Levels 51 - 100 (Tier 3 Crafting)
This is where things start to get tricky due to the possibility of needing schematics to further level up furnishing effectively. You will need a total of 181,375 experience to reach level 100, which is only an additional 157,975 experience. Tier 3 crafting for Furnishing follows this formula for experience: [Number of Materials * 24 Experience = Experience Output].

At Tier 3 Crafting the base value of iron ore is decreased from the 1.5 experience to 1.0, but others like green wood went from 1.5 experience to 2.0. 

Option 1 - Keep Crafting Rusty Iron Lanterns
My first suggestion for leveling this tier is to craft 1054 Rusty Iron Lanterns for a total of 158,100 experience. The Rusty Iron Lantern requires 15x Iron Ingots, 5x Oil, and 5x Fiber to craft.  Total required materials:

  • 15,810x Iron Ingots
  • 5,270x Oil
  • 5,270x Fiber
Base materials for up-crafting:
  • 63,240x Iron Ore -> Ingots

Rusty Iron Lantern’s base tax value is 0.13. Without any tax modifiers you will need to spend 137.02 coin/gold to just craft them. Additionally you will need 158.10 coin/gold if you plan to refine all the materials. 

My reasoning behind this is because the value of the Iron Ore is better at the Tier 2 crafting level than it is at the Tier 3 crafting level. This also saves you from spending any flux/refining material that would be needed for Tier 3 refining. Additionally you will not need to learn any schematics in order to complete this. 

Option 2 - Cherry Sheets Bunk Bed [Schematic Required]
The other suggestion for leveling Tier 3 Furnishing is to craft 138 Cherry Sheets Bunk Beds and 280 Maple Stain (28 crafts) for 158,016 experience. You will need to learn the Schematic: Map Bed 01 to learn this recipe. The Cherry Sheets Bunk Bed requires 35x Lumber, 10x Iron Ingots, and 2x Maple Stain and the Maple Stain requires 10x Weak Solvents and 4x Oil to craft and create 10 at a time. Total required materials:

  • 4,830x Lumber
  • 1,380x Iron
  • 276x Maple Stain
Base materials for up-crafting:
  • 38,640x Green Wood -> Timber
  • 19,320x Aged Wood -> Lumber
  • 4,830x Sandpaper
  • 5,520x Iron Ore -> Ingots
  • 280x Weak Solvents
  • 112x Oil

Cherry Sheets Bunk Beds' base tax value is 0.37 and the Maple Stain is 0.11. Without any tax modifiers you will need to spend 54.14 coin/gold to craft the set. Additionally you will need 255.30 coin/gold if you plan to refine all the materials.

The main reason this craft is good for Tier 3 crafting is because the metal used isn’t steel like all the other crafts, but iron. This is the only recipe that iron ore is worth more than the 1.0 experience per craft as previously stated; however I think this is an oversight from AGS and I expect this to be fixed in the coming patches.

Levels 101 - 150 (Tier 4 Crafting)
At this point you will need certain schematics to further level up furnishing effectively. You will need a total of 1,249,375 experience to reach level 150, which is only an additional ~1,068,025 experience (Depending on crafts). Tier 4 crafting for Furnishing follows this formula for experience: [Number of Materials * 96 Experience = Experience Output].

Powder Horn [Schematic Required]
For leveling Tier 4 you will want to craft 530 Powder Horn for 1,068,480 experience. You will need to salvage the Schematic: Powder Horn to learn this recipe. The Powder Horn requires 1x Animal Horn, 15x Gunpowder, and 5x Beeswax. Total required materials:

  • 530x Animal Horn
  • 7,950x Gunpowder
  • 2,650x Beeswax
Base materials for up-crafting:
  • 1,529x Saltpeter
  • 3,180x Flint
  • 15,900x Green Wood -> Charcoal

Powder Horn’s base tax value is 0.92. Without any tax modifiers you will need to spend 487.60 coin/gold to craft the set. Additionally you will need 79.50 coin/gold if you plan to refine all the materials.

TIP: With the 1.1 patch Into the Void, Beeswax has a chance to be harvested from honey trees in place of honey. 

Levels 151+ (Tier 5 Crafting)
Here you will need certain schematics to further level up furnishing effectively. You will need a total of 7,905,375 experience to reach level 200, which is only an additional ~6,625,395 experience. Tier 5 crafting for Furnishing follows this formula for experience: [Number of Materials * 320 Experience = Experience Output].

Rusty Iron Candelabra
For leveling Tier 5 you will want to craft 986 Rusty Iron Candelabra for 6,625,920 experience. You will need to salvage the Schematic: Rusty Iron Candelabra to learn this recipe. The Rusty Iron Candelabra requires 15x Orichalcum Ingot, 5x Beeswax, and 1x Fire Mote. Total required materials:

  • 14,790x Orichalcum Ingot
  • 4,930x Beeswax
  • 986x Fire Mote
Base materials for up-crafting:
  • 118,320x Orichalcum Ore -> Ingot
  • 177,480x Starmetal Ore -> Ingot
  • 709,920x Iron Ore -> Ingot
  • 103,530x Flux

Rusty Iron Candelabra’s base tax value is 2.19. Without any tax modifiers you will need to spend 2,159.34 coin/gold to craft the set. Additionally you will need 4,584.90 coin/gold if you plan to refine all the materials.

Rusty Iron Candelabra is the only Tier 5 craft that makes use of 1 refining material to upcraft to Tier 5. It is for this reason this craft is the most effective way to level Tier 5 crafting of Furnishing. It is also for this reason that many players are seeking out Beeswax to level up their Furnishing.

Enhancing Your Furnishing

Buffs and perks are the 2 main ways to enhance your Trade Skills, however Furnishing is one that doesn’t have any. There are no perks or buffs that are for Furnishing, so you don’t have to seek out any gear or temporary buffs to increase this Trade Skill. 

Furnishing Artifacts

This section covers all the known Artifacts for Furnishing and the Artifacts that are required to see them. Artifact crafting requires you to have the item in your bag(s) for the recipe to appear at the crafting station.
