Living room with new furniture

I once heard furniture makes a house, a home; or was its family? Either way, no one can deny the importance of furniture in a house. Well you won’t have anywhere to seat, eat or put the television without furniture except you in Asia where they seat and eat on the floor and the television can go on the wall but that doesn’t make the importance of furniture any less. Furniture can be seen anywhere in the house, the park and the office and it’s not just limited to chairs and tables but to things like your bed, book shelf, cradles and much more.
