Human furniture is furniture in which a person's body is used as a tray, foot stool, chair, table, cabinet or other item. Forniphilia is the practice of creating human furniture. Examples of human furniture have appeared in modern art and in pornography.

ArtEdit

A model used as human furniture may be nude or semi-nude to add to the erotic or aesthetic appeal. Allen Jones' sculptures Hatstand, Table and Chair, made in 1969, which show semi-naked women in the roles of furniture, is a classic example of the depiction of forniphilia as art.[1]

BondageEdit

The term forniphilia was coined by bondage artist Jeff Gord[2][3] who specialized in the subgenre and maintained the website "House of Gord" on the subject.[4] Forniphilia as a form of bondage usually involves the subject being tightly bound and expected to stay immobile for a prolonged period.[5] They are often gagged (see forniphilic gag) and/or placed in position where there is a danger of being smothered. In many of Jeff Gord's human furniture creations, vibrators were also used.[6] Proper safety requires frequent checks of the submissive's well-being.
