WHAT DOES YOUR FURNITURE SAY ABOUT YOU?

Your furniture isn’t limited by its functionality, or even by the degree to which it affects your state of mind; it, whether intended by the owner or not, communicates a great number of things to guests about your personality. Obviously what you surround yourself with is inevitably going to dictate your mood at least a little; interior decorators’ use of color has been studied at great length – green employed to make a space tranquil, blue for a productive office, and dining rooms best in red to stimulate a healthy appetite.

But if the house itself is the body and bones, then undoubtedly the furniture is the clothing and haircuts with which you can promote any look you choose. Let us have a look at not just what furniture affects different mindsets, but what you could be inadvertently expressing to any visitors…

Office-style seating. Square edges. Modern styles. High practicality.

You can struggle to create a homey environment with such carbon copy articles, but there’s no way you’ll let this style descend into mess – some untidy folks need a good constant deterrent.

People can assume you must be driven, smart, and value functionality, but done to too great a length and it can give off a vibe of clinical sterility.

Unique objects d’art. Quirky fixtures. Sculptures.

It might let people know you’ve got the money to keep up with technology trends, but also that you’re a person that doesn’t live in the past.

It is the most relaxed style you can achieve without installing a beach.
WHAT DOES IT SAY?
It says you recycle. It says you protest deforestation. It says you use baking soda for deodorant.

Or maybe you’re a type all your own! I even visited a friend’s own private domicile that I’d describe as mobster themed, so you’re bound only by your own imagination!
