Encyclopedia > Furnishings

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.
