Furnishings (aka art objects, decorative arts, knick-knacks, bric-a-brac) are the objects, other than furniture, that occupy an interior space. They can be purely decorative or fill a functional, symbolic, or religious purpose. Unlike furniture, furnishings do not support the human body or provide storage. However, certain furnishings, such as lighting, are as essential to interior design and commodious living as furniture or architecture. Paintings, photography, drawings, and other (usually 2D) works defined as fine art are not generally considered furnishing.
FRC is responsible for all office furnishings located in Washington, D.C. as well as materials and supplies for constructing, repairing, and refinishing furnishings.
This is contrary to FRC's inventory policy for Washington, D.C. furnishings which states, "A physical inventory of all offices in the U.S. House of Representatives is performed bi-annually by the Asset Management Division." Inventories should be completed in accordance with established policy.
Although FRC acknowledges that furnishings purchased from other office allowances or appropriations are not included in its inventory, FRC's written policy makes it responsible for House furnishings.
