Interior furnishing are those temporary or semipermanent systems and components that are generally required for the normal utilization of the buildings for its intended purpose. Examples include interior design elements, paint, furniture, flooring, ceilings, and wall fixtures.
Furnishings, sometimes are referred to as soft furnishings or upholstery, which are components that incorporate soft material and help create a pleasant and comfortable environment, and complement the furniture and fittings within the buildings. Furnishings can be made of fabric, chenille, velvet, silk, fur, faux-fur, cloth, foam, rubber, and so on.
Common types of furnishings include:
- Bedding and mattresses.
- Wall hangings and tapestries.
- Chair coverings.
- Bean bags.
Furnishings should be carefully selected and designed to enhance the quality of a room, often adding colour, texture and elegance to furniture. The soft material of some furnishings can also enhance the energy efficiency of a room by retaining heat and keeping it warm. They may also improve the sound insulation properties as soft materials absorb sound waves more effectively than hard surfaces which reflect sound back into the space and can result in echoes (or a longer reverberation time).
