Abstract: Independent objects created in order to serve functional purposes while also engaging the form of the physical human body; this is the concept of furniture. Furniture renders the user stationary but gives the user purpose. Not only can one feel comfortable physically but also mentally. The user feels entitled to location, if one is sitting in a chair, the area becomes the property of the individual, for another user to sit in the same area creates a social disturbance. Proper furniture conception can be the inspiration and medium for social interaction. Through the combination of complimentary forms, hybridization, and proximity, furniture has the power to promote physical, mental, and social well-being.
