Macaw’s Furniture Minecraft Mod
By Dalton Whalen
While Minecraft is all about exploring and gathering resources, many players will need a place to call home. While some may only add the bare minimum to their base, lots of others will decorate their house to add furniture and more. While this is fun, many interior decorations are limited by vanilla blocks, causing players to turn towards mods for a better solution. Introducing Macaw’s Furniture, a Minecraft mod that adds a variety of wooden furniture to improve your house. Whether you combine desks and bookshelves or decorate your perfect living room, the sky’s the limit. Adding mods to your server is easy with Apex Hosting, so we have created this tutorial to help you get started with Macaw’s Furniture.

Macaw’s Furniture adds many new items for both decoration and functionality. Whether you decide to sit in a chair or store your items, the choice is up to you. There is furniture for every wood type, including stripped wood and Nether planks.
The 3 wardrobe types allow you to store items within them as a type of chest. These blocks can be placed on top of each other to merge into taller versions of itself. This is great for having large wardrobes in a bedroom or combined with bookshelves.
Another type of storage block, the bookshelf is a standalone shelf or has a half-wardrobe variant. These blocks can also be stacked on top of one another, but can also upgrade an enchanting table like in vanilla.
The drawer blocks come in many different versions, each having a number of drawers and even some bookshelf space. Each of these has its own storage and can be expanded horizontally to form longer furniture pieces.
The desk blocks have 3 main versions, an open desk, one with covered sides, and a modern-style desk. Each of these do not have much functionality on their own, but can be placed in different shapes.
While not offering any storage or functionality, the tables make for a nice piece to compliment living rooms and dining rooms alike. Whether you want an end table, glass table, or more, the options are at your fingertips.
What’s the point of a desk or table if you can’t sit? The mod adds 3 chair types and one stool for use around your Minecraft house. This is great if you’re looking to complete your dining room or have outdoor seating.
A kitchen is not complete without counter space, luckily there is plenty to choose from. Take your pick of drawers, cupboards, or just a countertop. Find your desired combination to create the kitchen aesthetic of your dreams.
I get an error when joining the server:
Oftentimes, this error is caused when the server is running mods, while they are not running on your own client. Ensure you have installed the correct version of Forge and added the mod .jar file into the correct folder. If you are still encountering issues, make sure you are launching the correct installation from your launcher, otherwise the mod will not load up and work.
I can join, but the items aren’t working properly:
When this issue occurs, it generally means the mod is running on your own game, but did not load on the server. First, load into a singleplayer world and see if the mod is working normally. If so, visit your Apex panel and make sure everything is configured properly. Once this is complete, restart the server to load up the mod once again.
