What Furniture Type are you?

The types of furniture we surround ourselves with not only express our personalities, but dictate our mood to a certain degree. Your environment affects your state of mind, for example an untidy room can often lead to feelings of stress. Interior decorators even use different colours to transform the atmosphere of a space, blue promoting productivity, red stimulating appetite, and green inducing a sense of tranquillity.

And visiting a house for the first time, furniture is the first thing on which to base your impression. Let’s find out just what your furniture could be saying about you and, more importantly, how it could be affecting your life…

SMART

WHICH ITEMS

Office Chairs. Squared edges. Contemporary styles. Concentrated Functionality.

WHAT IT TELLS PEOPLE

Smart style furniture lets guests assume that you’re work orientated, and that you’re practical. But done to lengths and it can give off a vibe of clinical sterility.

ITS EFFECTS

Not having much personality to your furniture can stop you from feeling at home at home. But if this is your chosen style you are probably going to be more inclined to keep it tidy; and when your house is tidy, your mind is tidy.

ECCENTRIC

WHICH ITEMS

One-off objets d’art. Neon signs. Big clocks. Sculptures.

WHAT IT TELLS PEOPLE

People will undoubtedly have you pegged as a character when they see a house full of crazy knick-knacks and interesting trinkets.

ITS EFFECTS

Often this style can make your abode feel more homely. And the clutter can often inspire creativity.

FUTURISTIC

WHICH ITEMS

Bladeless fans. Minimalistic style seating. Giant TV. Gadgets. Lots of glass.

WHAT IT TELLS PEOPLE

This style demonstrates that you’re interested in keeping up with modern technology, and probably that you have enough money to as well.

ITS EFFECTS

This environment promotes forward thinking. Usually people favouring this style aim to continually improve themselves.

OLD-SCHOOL

WHICH ITEMS

Lava Lamps. Bucket/Egg Chair. Spherical TV. Retro lighting. 60’s throwbacks.

WHAT IT TELLS PEOPLE

This might inadvertently tell people you’re living in the past if not done tastefully. But what it can infer is that you have an eye for that classic style, and you’re basically totally groovy.

ITS EFFECTS

You are likely to feel outta sight my man. This style stops you from getting too caught up in the now, and reminds you that life goes on.

CLASSY

WHICH ITEMS

Paintings. Chaise longue. Bergère. Pine Furniture. Jali Sheesham furniture.

WHAT IT TELLS PEOPLE

Classy style can demonstrate your timeless taste if done correctly. Done incorrectly and guests might presume pomposity.

ITS EFFECTS

Having a quiet grace and elegance surrounding you at home can start reflect in your own manner, often for the better.

VEGAN/HIPPY

WHICH ITEMS

Beanbag. Fruit bowl. Hammock. Plants. Guitar.

WHAT IT TELLS PEOPLE

People can fairly safely assume that you recycle based off this style. And that they’re welcome to engage you in debate over ‘the government’s true intentions.

ITS EFFECTS

To be fair, you can’t really get more relaxed than this type of furniture. Your house is gonna be beyond a home. It will be a sanctuary. If this is already you, then supplement your collection with an indoor water feature for maximum chilling spree.

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!
