Furniture usually symbolizes our inheritance or revered objects. It also reflects our 'inner landscape', that part of ourselves to which we retire when seeking sanctuary. Sometimes the furniture that appears in a dream can highlight our need for security or stability, particularly if it is recognizable from the past. Different articles of furniture have various meanings: Bed/mattress - this can show exactly what is happening in the subtle areas of our close relationships. We can get an insight into how we really feel about intimacy and sexual pleasure. For some people the bed is a place of sanctuary and rest, where they can be totally alone. Carpet - often when carpets appear in a dream we are looking at our emotional links with finance. The colour of the carpet should also be noted. Chair - a chair can indicate that we need a period of rest and recuperation. We may need to deliberately take time out, to be open to other opportunities and openings. Cupboard/Wardrobe - cupboards and wardrobes may depict those things we wish to keep hidden, but may also depict how we deal with the different roles we must play in life. Cushion - this suggests support and comfort. Table - for a table to appear in a dream is often to do with communal activity and with our social affiliations. Rugs and other soft furnishings may show what we need in the way of cosseting, and may reflect our tactile nature.
