In term of home furnishings, function, form, fitness and fashion are the key guiding factors in choosing home furniture. Function is the first and foremost criteria for a person to go for bare-minimum furnishings. A person buys a table, chair, bed, cupboard, settee, sofa, bookshelf, curtain, carpet, wallpaper and so on, primarily for utility or function. A bare home, bereft of furnishings, is like a stable or a warehouse, unfit for living.
Furniture. People. Lifestyle.
Faced with an empty room, no two people will furnish in the same way. One person’s comfortable place to sit may be a well upholstered wing chair and another’s may be a modular unit with matching ottoman.
Choosing and arranging furniture have everything to do with individual preference, lifestyle, and budget. It’s all about the furniture, the people and the lifestyle. Therefore, once we’ve thought about the role furniture plays in our life, we need to be ready to know more about the furniture itself. How to choose and use it, how to recycle and maintain it, and more.
