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.
Psychological / Emotional Perspective:
Sometimes the furniture that appears in a dream can highlight our need for security or stability, particularly if it is recognizable from the past.
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.
Everyday Material Aspects:
The furniture that appears in our dreams, particularly if it is drawn to our attention, often shows how we feel about our family and home life, and what attitudes or habits we have developed. It also can give an indication as to how we feel about ourselves. For instance, dark, heavy material would suggest the possibility of depression, whereas brightly painted objects could testify to an upbeat mentality. Broken furniture or that which breaks as we use it can indicate a lack of security and support, or fears about the future.
