What is Furniture?

From the Cambridge Dictionary: furniture (noun): UK/ˈfɜː.nɪ.tʃər/ USˈfɝː.nɪ.tʃɚ/ things such as chairs, tables, beds, cupboards, etc. that are put into a house or other building to make it suitable and comfortable for living or working in.

Furniture is often made from wood and textiles (fabric), but also can contain plastic foam products and metal. Furniture can be glued or held together with nails and screws. When Furniture gets to the end of its life, in Waste Management terms, it is often grouped with other big household items like mattresses and fridges as Bulky Waste. Some District Councils will collect this waste from the kerbside.
